That’s the total number of yards the San Francisco 49ers racked up in a 45-31 Divisional Playoff Round win against the Green Bay Packers. It’s also a number that’s sticking with Packers coach Mike McCarthy all offseason.
It’s on his mind so much, McCarthy will send his defensive coaches to Texas A&M to study the best ways to defend the read-option offense from Aggies head coach Kevin Sumlin.
Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle shared McCarthy’s comments that were made Friday at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine.
The 49ers totaled 323 yards in the playoff win over the Packers, including a 7.5 yards per carry average to go along with four rushing scores.
“San Francisco, they beat us twice last year,” McCarthy said. “You look at the difference in the first game and the second game, and obviously the glaring statistic and the information in the second game was obviously the production of their quarterback … San Francisco had a great year; like I said they beat us twice, and that’ll definitely be a focus of our offseason.”
