Green Bay Packers
Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews was fined $15,000 for a hit on San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick during the teams’ season opener.
Reversing several centuries of accumulated wisdom, the NFL ruled Monday that two wrongs sometime do make a right.
The San Francisco 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers 34-28 Sunday based largely on a strong passing game. “Green Bay had the whole off-season to work on what they were going to do against the 49ers,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew.
The 49ers and Packers are expected to be two of the last teams standing this season, and they showed why in Sunday’s game. The two waged war for four quarters, with each team holding a lead in the 4th, before San Francisco was able to take control and hold off Green Bay to earn the win.
Colin Kaepernick threw for a career-high 412 yards and 3 touchdowns, with 13 completions to Anquan Boldin and the 49ers beat the Packers 34-28 on Sunday.
The 49ers face the Green Bay Packers at Candlestick Park Sunday in a key NFC match-up to open the season. “It’s going to be a good one,” John Madden told the KCBS morning crew, noting each defense is tasked with stopping two of the NFL’s best quarterbacks.
At first glance it seems that the Packers and 49ers will both be at full strength for the match up Sunday. However, San Francisco will be without several players and will need to hold the fort until they get back their full roster.
The Packers’ defense has a simple plan to stop an opposing ball carrier, regardless of whether that guy is a quarterback, tailback or receiver.
The Green Bay Packers signed Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien, two back-up quarterbacks the 49ers released last week. Are the Packers looking for inside information as they prepare for this weekend’s season opener against San Francisco?
Two teams looking to erase the thoughts of 2012 are the 49ers and Packers. While the 49ers are trying to get back to the Super Bowl, the Packers are facing the team that not only ended their 2012 season, but did so in a rout. Both teams are talented and the winner will be the team to beat in the NFL after week 1.
