On the Phone with McCarthy and Rodgers

It will be something of a homecoming for Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Saturday as his Packers will square off against the 49ers in San Francisco. The Chico native and former Cal star has so many ticket requests this week that he took care of his family and told his friends they were on their own.

There was a time when Rodgers dreamed about playing at Candlestick with the 49ers, but as he makes his first career regular season or postseason appearance at the historic stadium, he’ll do so as the enemy.

They are a team that has the pieces in place to make a Super Bowl run. They are a team we could play down the line so it’s going to be a great game, a great test for both offenses and defenses. I’m excited to get back out there.”

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said facing a 49ers defense that allowed the second-fewest points-per-game in 2011 will be a tough challenge.
