49ers vs. Packers: Can Colin Kaepernick Work His Magic On Green Bay Again?

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

We all remember what Colin Kaepernick did last season in the playoffs against the Green Bay Packers. He had a monstrous performance as the Packers simply had no answer for the dynamic athlete. He beat the Pack with his arm and with his devastating running ability at the quarterback position.

Kaepernick set a record that still stands today with 181 rushing yards, the most ever by a quarterback in a postseason game. Will we see more of the same Sunday afternoon? You have to think the Packers won’t be caught off guard this time.

Dom Capers and the defensive staff spent all offseason working on stopping the read option, and it showed in their Week 1 matchup as Kaepernick only had 22 yards rushing. But this time he torched the Packers’ secondary with his arm.

The problem with shutting down one aspect of Kaepernick’s game is that he is a multi-dimensional, dual-threat quarterback who can beat you in so many ways. The San Francisco 49ers also went out and got Kaepernick a security blanket in Anquan Boldin who has been a monster this season, especially on third-down.

That and the return of Michael Crabtree, to go along with dynamic tight end Vernon Davis and a dominant running game that features the bruising Frank Gore, makes this offense even tougher to defend than it was last season.

Let’s not forget that the Niners’ defense is a fierce, stingy unit no matter what conditions it plays in. While Kaepernick may not go crazy with his legs he is more than capable of beating this suspect Packers’ secondary through the air.

It may be a long day at Lambeau Field.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
