Without question, the San Francisco 49ers may have the toughest job of any team this weekend in the opening Wild Card Round of the NFL Playoffs. They have to travel to Green Bay to face off against the NFC North champion Packers who are playing with a lot of emotion with having their All-Pro quarterback Aaron Rodgers back in the mix.

Oh yeah, and then there’s that whole weather factor. Apparently, according to forecasts, the temperatures are expected to hit somewhere in the negatives during the game, which could spell doom for the men from California.

Yes, the odds are certainly stacked against the defending NFC Champions on Sunday, but that’s okay, because they got a little bit of motivation on Saturday.

The 49ers were paid a visit by NWA and WWE legend, ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair, who I’m sure had to deliver the best taste of motivation that anyone on this earth could find.


Now, if we hear Colin Kaepernick yelling out ‘WOOOOOOOOOO’ after he throws a touchdown pass tomorrow, we know why.
