Matt LaFleur said he doesn't regret going for it on the 1-yard line at the end of the first half yesterday but said: "I didn't like the play call; we didn't practice it for that situation." LaFleur put it squarely on himself but said he would still go for it.

Matt LaFleur has so many connections to the 49ers staff, not the least of which is his bother, Mike, who is their passing game coordinator. Matt said his wife, Bre, and their two sons are going out to San Fran early next week and staying with Mike's family in advance of the Nov. 24 game. "Hopefully she can do some recon," Matt jokes.

Matt LaFleur said this week's self-scout will have the offensive coaches break down the Packers' defense and vice versa. Sounds a lot like Mike McCarthy's "across-the-hall" exercise. "It gives a different perspective of how an opponent would like to attack one side of the ball," LaFleur said.

Davante Adams said he's staying in Green Bay during the bye in part to continue treatment on his turf toe to make sure it's "3 million percent better." Adams said he still has "some soreness" but obviously was highly productive yesterday with seven catches for 118 yards.

Preston Smith and Za'Darius Smith said earlier in the season that whoever got to 10 sacks first would buy something for the defense. Preston got there today, and he said he's buying Rolex watches for the entire D. Za'Darius said his gift would've been chains with a number medallion but only for the OLB group. Za'Darius was stunned that Preston said the entire D.
