James reacted to a tweet showing Kaepernick in his second year as quarterback in the NFL torching the Packers in the divisional round of the 2012 NFC playoffs. Kaepernick was 17-for-31 with 263 passing yards, two passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns. The 49ers won, 45-31.
“LEGEND ON AND OFF THE FIELD!!! Kids don’t let them tell you he wasn’t still nice as hell on the field too! S/O KAEP,” the Los Angeles Lakers superstar tweeted.
Rodgers targeted Davante Adams twice to quickly get the ball up the field with no timeouts and left the game up to Mason Crosby to kick the game-winner. The veteran delivered and the Packers won the game, 30-28.
The reigning NFL MVP told NBC’s Michelle Tafoya after the game he believed his Week 1 performance was an “anomaly” and his play on Sunday night doubled down on that notion. He was 23-for-33 with two touchdown passes – one to Adams and the other to Marquez Valdes-Scantling.
Adams had 12 catches for 132 yards.
Green Bay won this game, 30-28.
