"That's something that's part of their arsenal," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said of the read option in a conference call Wednesday. "How much they use it and don't is part of their Jordan Cap Snapback Black
choice. We have to prepare for everything we'll see, and I'm sure they'll have new wrinkles for us."
His teammates agree.

That might not sound great to the Green Bay Packers, who were tormented by Kaepernick in the 49ers' divisional playoff win last year and will face him again in Sunday's wild card game at Lambeau Field.
SANTA CLARA Colin Kaepernick cited his experience for why he's "more comfortable" entering the playoffs than a year ago.
The 49ers and Packers renewed that playoff rivalry a year ago, when Kaepernick made quite the playoff debut. He ran for 181 yards (an NFL record by a quarterback) and two touchdowns while also passing for 263 yards and two scores in a 45 31 home win.
He ran for 524 yards and four touchdowns this regular season, mostly from scrambles rather than the read option snaps that tormented Green Bay in the playoffs.
"I feel like it's a true character of who he is as a football player, the ability to bounce back, stay positive and continually lead the offense. I look for him to do great things in these playoffs."
But Kaepernick's statistics have soared over the past six wins. His average passer rating is 106.5 in that win streak, with 10 touchdowns and one interception. A year ago, he also entered the playoffs strongly, totaling a 100 plus passer rating in three of his final four regular season games.
"biggest memory" being Terrell Owens' winning touchdown catch in the 49ers' wild card win over the Packers in January 1998.
One new wrinkle: rookie Quinton Patton, who played only four snaps in the opener but made a big catch Sunday to set up the 49ers' win at Arizona.
His 49ers teammates are more at ease with Kaepernick, too, especially after seeing him finish strongly in what had been an up and down regular season.
"As time goes on, you start to see the progression he's made over these games, and we're more confident now with him than we were a year ago," defensive tackle Ray McDonald said.
Kaepernick opened this season by passing for a career high 412 yards and three touchdowns while running for only 22 yards in a 34 28 win over the Packers.
"I'm just more comfortable with the situation, with the scenario," Kaepernick said. "Last year, everything just happened fast. This year, I have the experience of being in the playoffs, I have the experience of being in the offense."
"I know people expected coming into this season he was going to coast through this football league," linebacker Patrick Willis said Thursday. "But it's the National Football League, so sometimes you're going to have those tough droughts, those tough games.
Kaepernick's greatest games arguably have come against the Packers, a team the Wisconsin native rooted for as a kid, with his New Era St. Louis Cardinals
Kaepernick's first full season as the 49ers starter hasn't been a smooth ride, made bumpier by the absence of his favorite target, Michael Crabtree, through the first 11 games.

Recalling that performance, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Thursday that he "always had the sense the big stage did not make (Kaepernick) flinch, and those things were Ny Yankees Caps confirmed."
