SAN FRANCISCO - A Milwaukee native who led the 49ers to end the Green Bay Packers' season last week says that the 49ers' dominance started the Packers' defense to fight amongst themselves during the NFC divisional playoff.
“It got to a point,” Colin Kaepernick told SI.com, “where we could hear [the Packers’ defenders] arguing while we were in our huddle. ‘You’re supposed to do this,’ or ‘You have to do this, then the other.’
"At that point, our offense was like, It’s over. As soon as you start turning on your teammates, you’re not going to be productive. You know you have them in the palm of your hands.”
Kaepernick and co. did exactly that, dominating the Packers in a 45-31 decision that wasn't even that close.
We'll find out if the Packers choose to use this as motivational bulletin board material for their season-starting showdown in San Francisco in September.
