I am a big fan of Eric Baranczyk's "Inside Football" analysis over at JSOnline. (sorry, sub required) He usually breaks things down in very football-specific terms and gives you the whys and hows of what went on on the field each Sunday.
But I have to say, I am a bit disappointed with this from his latest dispatch:
Rodgers doesn’t take any chances. What happened to the skinny post? He doesn’t throw down the middle late and you hear coaches preach that: Don’t throw down the middle late. But you’ve got to do it sometimes or you’re going to see the crap that you saw in this game, especially if you can’t run the ball. You’re going to get sacks. No rhythm. I thought with Jermichael Finley this year, you’d see more wheel routes. Granted, that’s a play that takes more time to develop. But, right now, they have no vertical passing game. It’s all short stuff.
I mean, what game was he watching? Seriously.
Did he miss Rodgers throwing deep into the middle of three defenders when he had Jordy Nelson open on the comeback? And how can he say "It's all short stuff" like it's a BAD thing? Please, they need to throw MORE short stuff. Or did he miss the whole 'Rodgers can't take a 5 step drop without getting killed'-thing they had going on Sunday afternoon.
I'm sorry, but as a quarterback coach, Baranczyk makes a great offensive lineman.
