NFC rivals had a lot to say about 49ers at NFL combine

Plenty of NFC brass chimed in at the NFL scouting combine about the 49ers’ success. Here is a sampling of what some rivals said:

Packers coach Matt LaFleur, on if they need more physical players to beat the 49ers after falling 37-20 in the NFC Championship Game:

“I don’t think the physicality had a whole lot to do with it. They had a great agme plan and ultimately they went out and executed their plan a lot better than we did. I think there’s a lot of facets we can improve upon moving forward, but I’m confident in the guys we have on our roster and certainly throughout this process in the offseason we’re always trying to add to that.”

Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst:

“The way I go about it – I think the way Matt LaFleur) goes about it – we’re not looking to catch any particular team. I think we’re trying to build a football club and develop a club that can kind of withstand whatever storms come our way. We always start with the division and then work beyond that. So, again, I think if you focus too much on that, you’re going to miss things.”

Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury:

“It’s definitely motivating, there is no doubt, to see what Kyle has built there and staying consistent to his culture and who he wanted to be and hanging with it through some tough quarterback injuries. Being in their division, playing them and seeing what they have, it’s definitely motivation for our organization.”
