It was a good play all the way around. Hutch called the INT a “freebie.” It wasn’t perfect on his part but I do like the fact that he felt Backtiari slip by him and he started to peel back. If you look closely Backtiari (not giving a fuck about spelling his name right on purpose) was lined up in his normal LT spot. He just happened to have reported eligible. That trick play typically works because players aren’t aware of individual players as much as they are alignment. In this case it was an overloaded line to the right with Backtiari as a “TE” lined up next to the guard.
As far as Hutch getting too much credit, I am okay with that. I like having a player the media gives a fuck about. And I say media and not just fans because of a segment I watched earlier today. They were obviously covering the game in detail, talking about all of the Packers mistakes. They turn to Rodgers answering a question after the game about his 3 INTs and he describes it as 2 bad throws and “a good play by the kid.” I am 99% sure he was talkinig about Kerby Joseph undercutting the pass when he said “a good play by the kid.” But the hosts immediately attributed it to Hutch and spent the next 2 minutes talking about Hutch and the play.
I think that is #96 Isaiah Buggs. Had the goal line package out there so it was McNeill, Jones, Paschal, Buggs, and Cominsky I think? But pretty sure that’s Buggs who rips through and forces that pass.
You’re also assuming a left tackle can catch! That sure shows how desperate the Packers are for WR’s. Haha he may have dropped it! Great pressure on the play though, whoever that DT was, it wasn’t Alim I can tell you that much.
Rodgers mechanics are horrible but he’s been throwing off his back foot for forever…but yesterday, his passes were falling short. One of the guys at work is a GB fan and said that Rodgers has been dealing with a bad throwing thumb…and then it looked like he reaggravated it yesterday (I think it might have been after this play though). But when do you remember Rodgers bouncing passes to his receivers and so many passes just being too low? It happened all day long, not just on this play.
I think it was a good play by Buggs but he didn’t even get his arms up in the air to try and block the pass and/or block Rodgers vision. Had he put his arms up, there might have been an argument for Rodgers having to change the trajectory of his throw up higher which made the pass fall shorter or that Rodgers couldn’t see the receiver and miss-judged the throw because of the defenders arms blocking his view, neither happened though.
I think it was just another example of Rodgers throwing it short, which happened all day. I told the guy at work that I’m sure we’ll hear after the season that Rodgers was dealing with a bum thumb all season.
I’m a UofM fan but I still like MSU.
I think it’s funny how much hate thin-skinned Sparty fans have against UofM but it’s really not reciprocated by UofM fans.
You are a great example of a bitter, envious Sparty fan.
I for one, wouldn’t care if one of our best, young defenders was from UofM, MSU, or the Univ of Timbucktwo…but you seem to have a real problem with it. It’s kind of funny and sad to see at the same time.
