Ready for season opener at legendary Lambeau Field

Good news everyone, I’ll be doing this blog all season long for the 49ers faithful. I’m excited to have our first regular season game this week, too. Being able to get into the season is a really good feeling. We can look back and understand what we have accomplished since we have been here and now move forward. There have been OTAs, minicamps, conditioning, football school, training camp and preseason games.

All the preliminary stuff is out of the way and it’s time for the real deal.

This week, we are going to go out to Green Bay as a whole to test ourselves knowing we put a lot of work in. We know we ended last season on a sour note. We want to get back to the playoffs and have the opportunity to get to the Super Bowl. It all starts with Week 1. Knowing that makes this a very exciting time, but we still have to put in the work to make sure we know our opponents better than they know themselves. That’s what we are preparing to do.

It’s special when you play at Lambeau Field. I played there in 2010 when I was with Buffalo. We lost the game convincingly, but I took away that it’s a really good football atmosphere. The stadium is similar to Buffalo in that it’s located in a residential area. People own houses around the stadium, which makes it pretty cool when you’re driving to the stadium on the team bus. You can understand why people love Green Bay Packers football so much. It’s going to be a test for us, but it’s going to be a great football atmosphere especially for opening week.
