Yesterday in Cheese Curds, we told you about Clay Matthews wanting to hit Colin Kaepernick. SHOCKER: Jim Harbaugh doesn't like that and is now trying to convince the referees to treat that as "targeting a specific player". Or maybe, just don't run any read option plays, Jim, and your QB will get all the normal special treatment afforded to any other quarterback. I'd be okay with that.

Anyways, we're heavy on news about this Sunday's Packers-49ers game, so click around and come back here when you're done.

Let's see if teams try to use this tactic against the Packers when they go to a no-huddle offense.
