Rodgers ready for opener in San Francisco

GREEN BAY -

Aaron Rodgers isn't out for revenge in Green Bay's season opener.

Sure, the San Francisco 49ers bounced the Packers from the NFC playoffs with a 45-31 win in January, but the former MVP quarterback -- who grew up a Niners fan in Northern California -- says he and his teammates are simply focused on the task at hand.

The matchup the last time wasn't so great for the Packers, who allowed Colin Kaepernick to run for 181 yards -- the most by a quarterback in NFL history in a regular season or postseason game -- and gave up 579 yards of total offense.

Kaepernick made things even harder on the Packers because he's not just a running quarterback.

He also completed 17 of 31 passes for 263 yards and a touchdown after opening the game with a pick-six interception to cornerback Sam Shields.
