The Packers made a concerted effort to limit the plays Colin Kaepernick made running the football which they did limiting him to just 27 rushing yards. Kaepernick proceeded to beat them with his arm throwing for 412 yards and 3 Touchdowns. They'll try to apply the lessons they learned this week against RGIII and the Redskins.
"We can't let them sit back there in the pocket,” Clay Matthews said. “We need to make sure we have a pass rush after them and our DB's on the back end covering and tackling them. And when it's the other way around we need to make sure we're aggressive and shut down the read option,” Matthews went on to say.
Defensive Coordinator Dom Capers said vigilance is key with the mobile quarterback. "You can't ever relax. They'll test your discipline off the play action pass. You can't get too nosy playing the run you have to take care of your responsibility. If he's going to pull it out of there and throw the ball vertical you've got to make sure you're playing over the top of him.”
While Robert Griffin III looked rusty at times in the Redskins season opener the Packers expect to see a much different quarterback out here at Lambeau, one that more resembles the RGIII of last season.
"As the game went on you saw the true RGIII getting into a rhythm making plays,” Tramon Williams said. “Getting outside of the pocket, getting his team back in the game and that's the team we're expecting to play."
Earlier in the week Johnny Jolly added, "I'm not sure if he's 100 percent or not. He looked pretty good to me when I watched him on Monday night football. He's still moving around still scrambling."
Ryan Pickett stressed that the player Griffin was in the first half of game one isn’t what the team expects in week two. "He's definitely still a threat running the football so we have to respect him in that aspect, and keep our rush lane integrity," Pickett said.
That big play ability helped the Redskins nearly pull off a twenty-six point second half comeback against Philadelphia on Monday night.
