SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Remember way back -- two weeks ago -- when all the Green Bay Packers could think about was how much the San Francisco 49ers were going to use the read-option offense?Seems like a distant memory, doesn't it.Thus far, the 49ers have done anything but rely on the read-option. They used it with success last season and quarterback Colin Kaepernick shredded the Packers on the ground in the playoffs. However, in Week 1 the 49ers barely used the offense against the Packers.
