Baldinger: 49ers’ improved rushing attack the key to beating Packers

“[The 49ers have] got a much better tandem right now, up front,” Baldinger continued. “And so, to me, just like when they beat the Packers two years ago in the [NFC] Championship Game, look at how they ran the ball against the Packers. And look at how Aaron Rodgers had to play from behind, and what that looked like. To me, if you’re a Forty-Niner fan, just go back and rewatch that game, and that’s what it can look like, even if it’s at Lambeau. It doesn’t matter.”

49ers-Packers: Kyle Shanahan wants Trey Lance to ‘let it rip’ while imitating Aaron Rodgers in practice

“Aaron does a real good job of not making bad decisions and not turning the ball over,” head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters before Tuesday’s practice. “But he also makes all the plays downfield whenever you’re off just a hair. We need Trey to be very aggressive, let it rip.”
