Packers pick off Kaepernick, find their groove on offense

Kaepernick AP

With the 49ers threatening to blow open early in the second quarter a wild-card playoff game at Lambeau Field, the Packers made a big play.

Cornerback Tramon Williams intercepted a Colin Kaepernick pass to tight end Vernon Davis deep in Green Bay’s end of the field.  Williams then ran roughly 50 yards across the field and 17 yards up it, before dropping a shoulder (and possibly the crown of his helmet) into Kaepernick to end the play.

No flag was thrown for violation of the league’s new rule preventing the use of the crown of the helmet as a battering ram.

The interception apparently has sparked the Green Bay offense.  After a trio of three-and-out drives, the Packers have moved the ball deep into Green Bay territory with four straight first downs.

    Kaeperdick shrivels in big games.

    SF dominating performance and then GB get the lead from one turnover and lapse in pass defense. Why they stopped getting to Rodgers this last drive is the question. If they don’t get back to that formula, they will soon be down by 11-15.

    That was a big momentum gainer and a huge risk by Tramon. Although there was a good chance of not getting flagged and a chance to get a direct shot to the QB’s head. Sucks that it is an encouraged strategy to aim for. They should take a good look at Kaep’s head after taking such a powerful blow like that.

    Jaws was right when he said Kaepernick doesnt go through his progression. He stares down the guy he anticipates to be open. Tramon noticed this, completely abandoned Boldin and undercut the pass to Vernon.

    Williams will be fined for that. Welcome to the NFL in 2014.

    What’s funny is that the officials refuse to throw a flag against Green Bay, even when it’s obvious there should have been multiple against House alone, and they still can’t stay on top at home. It’s sad that there is such bias in the officiating.

    Kaepernick looks cold & intimidated, he won’t get past Seattle if it comes to that

    As everyone knows by now that was the only play the defense made. How the niners didn’t win by 20 us beyond me, they just played thee worst defense in the league. They have there hands full next week against Carolina. It won’t be pretty.
