Are Packers targeting Kaepernick?

Clay Matthews thinks maybe the best way to stop read-option quarterbacks like the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick is to hit them. Niners head coach Jim Harbaugh says that sounds like Green Bay's defense is targeting his QB. It could just be a new tactic for the Packers, who allowed Kaepernick to run for a QB playoff record 181 yards in last season's NFC divisional playoff game.

Do you have a problem with Clay Matthews saying that perhaps the best way to slow read-option QBs like Colin Kaepernick is to hit them?
