That remains a point of contention, with the Packers saying they have an "understanding" of the rules pertaining to Colin Kaepernick and the read-option. The 49ers' understanding, however, is different.
Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers have a number of defensive coordinators going to extra lengths to stop the read option offense. Some, such as Dom Capers of the Green Bay Packers, have gone to college coaches to help figure out how to stop the bleeding. There have been a variety of new ways to supposedly limit quarterbacks like Russell Wilson, Robert Griffin III, Cam...

After playing with the 49ers last season, FOX Sports 1 NFL analyst Randy Moss claims that Colin Kaepernick and Vernon Davis never built a rapport last season.
“From my time there last year, it didn’t seem Kaepernick and Vernon Davis had a rapport. They haven’t shown that yet,” Moss said via conference call, according to the San Jose Mercury News, via CSN Bay Area.
We take a second look at the matchups when the 49er are on offense. Will the read-option be a big part of San Francisco's offense? What can Colin Kaepernick do for an encore after breaking out late last season? And do the 49ers have "no" receivers, as one scout suggested?
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It was clear that the Green Bay Packers did not want to think about last season's divisional-round playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

The Packers did nothing to upgrade their middle linebackers this offseason, and it’ll show against run option QBs like Kaep. Additionally, Green Bay’s best cornerback...
