On Sunday, the Green Bay Packers return to the NFC Championship Game for the first time since the 2016 season. There, they will face off against the San Francisco 49ers, the No. 1 seed in the conference. Kyle Posey of Niners Nation kindly volunteered to answer our questions about the 49ers and provide some insight into their strengths and weaknesses.

APC: At this stage, what is the greatest strength and weakness of the 49ers?

Now that the Niners are fully healthy it’s tough to say anything other than the defensive line. Saturday was a race to the quarterback each time Kirk Cousins dropped back. I think the 49ers team speed an overall physicality is their greatest strength. They can punch. you in the mouth but run right by you. It’s not often a team that can do both at an elite level as San Francisco can.

We’d like to thank Kyle. Be sure to check out the rest of our Q&A session with Niners Nation over the course of the week as well as our Q&A session over there.
