Packers are ready for 49ers
By Mike Zeisberger, QMI Agency
After meticulously grooming his famous blonde locks for a solid five minutes, Green Bay Packers all-pro linebacker Clay Matthews finally turned around to face the 30 reporters surrounding his locker and started singing the praises of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Just 20 minutes earlier, Matthews and his Packers had punched their plane tickets to San Francisco thanks to a 24-10 wild card victory over hapless Joe Webb and the Minnesota Vikings at frosty Lambeau Field on Saturday night. The victory set up next Saturday’s NFC divisional-round clash between the Packers and 49ers at The Stadium Formerly Known As Candlestick Park, a rematch of a Week 1 meeting when San Francisco physically dominated Green Bay 30-22 right in Lambeau.
