The Green Bay Packers are defeated by the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday, here is what the players had to say following the game. Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers: “Well, it’s pretty frustrating, put a lot into this. Now I stand here and you realize that this is the last time that group is going to be together. It will be a different team next year. There will be additions, subtractions and that’s the most frustrating part. You spend a lot of time with those guys, you care about them, you care about this a lot and then to go out there and play like that it’s disappointing.” CB Casey Hayward: “They just came out and hit us in the mouth. They just beat us tonight.” WR Greg Jennings: “It has been great. I love this organization. The reality is that there will probably be some changes made. Hopefully I stay here. If not I am ready to move wherever. It is what it is, I am not naïve to that. I am being a realist. I love this organization I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. If I have to that is what I have to do. DT B.J. Raji: “It is tough. It never gets easy, especially when you are a Green Bay Packer. A lot is expected of you. In a season like this for the second year in a row it is definitely painful. Hopefully we will learn from this and we will be a better team next year.” San Francisco 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh: “Thought it was a great team performance, great team victory. Highlight the special teams where we got the big turnover. The coverage was outstanding. [S] C.J. Spillman, a bunch of guys – [LB] Tavares Gooden, [LB] Larry Grant, [FB] Bruce Miller, [TE] Delanie Walker, [K] David Akers, [P] Andy Lee, tremendous job there. Defensively we got the great interception, got stops, which is really tough to do against this offense. Offensively, thought we played great. [QB] Colin [Kaepernick] had a great game. Just excellent team performance.” QB Colin Kaepernick: “It’s a great accolade, I think it means a lot to this team. Our offensive line did an amazing job, our receivers, tight ends and running backs did amazing jobs. They opened up a lot of lanes for me.” WR Michael Crabtree: “Every playoff game I have something to prove. Last year it was bad, it was what it was. We are on a new year and I’m just trying to make a play and get that win.” RB Frank Gore: “I am a football player. I just adjust to whatever. That is the way to get a “W”, then whatever, I just want to win.” Via Packers.com
