Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 19 vs DAL (24 / 35 / 316 / 3 / 0 pass, 4 / -4 / 0 rush)

We wondered how Rodgers would cope with a gimpy calf and it turns out the answer was: pretty well. He wasn't mobile, and that impacted his game quite a bit, though interestingly on two of his three touchdowns he still scrambled a little bit. On the first score, the pocket collapsed and Rodgers stepped through the mess and just out of the reach of a defender, escaping long enough to find tight end Andrew Quarless in the back of the end zone. On the second touchdown--a pass down the middle to rookie Davante Adams which the first-year pro took to the house with some razzle-dazzle moves--was thrown from the pocket. But the third saw the pocket collapse and Rodgers run out to his left, plant his feet and throw a perfect strike to Richard Rodgers, splitting two defenders. Rodgers was definitely off his game, hampered by his calf, but even a little mobility was enough to buy him the time to make some great throws. If he can feel a little bit better against Seattle, he might avoid that one sack Dallas got on Sunday.

2014 Week 20 vs SEA (19 / 34 / 178 / 1 / 2 pass, 1 / 12 / 0 rush)

With a calf that was clearly still an issue, and a gameplan which became super-conservative in the second half, the Green Bay Packers collapsed on both sides of the ball in the second half against Seattle. At one point, Rodgers hobbled for a first down and it was the longest run he's had in two weeks. He otherwise didn't leave the pocket, and barely scrambled to get out of the way when the pocket collapsed. Rodgers also seemed to have a lot of issues getting in sync with his receivers, his throws often just a bit underthrown or off target. His first interception was a good example of this. On a 3rd and 10 in the first quarter, receiver Davante Adams ran on a deep route and had a couple of steps on cornerback Richard Sherman. However, Rodgers delivery was a little late, a little short and Adams had to slow down and leap for it. Sherman was able to get it instead for the pick. Normally, that's a throw Rodgers is long and outside, to protect the ball from the defender, but this time he wasn't and the result was an interception. On a 3rd and goal a short time later, he had a wide open field outside of Jordy Nelson but threw the ball too far away and Nelson could only bat at the ball with one hand. Things like that plagued Rodgers all day and throws he would normally make, he didn't. He did connect with Randall Cobb at the end of the first quarter when he threw for his one touchdown of the game. On the play, coverage seemed to break down as Cobb crossed the middle of the field. The safety picked him up but when tight end Richard Rodgers crossed going the other way, the defender picked him up instead. Cobb was wide open in between several defenders who were all otherwise occupied. The second half saw the playcalling go ultra-conservative. The Packers often dink and dunk, but on Sunday the forgot the stretch the field as well. This, despite the fact that Sherman was visibly injured and holding his arm between plays. They never really tested him though and the game was played and called as if it were in the waning second of a blowout instead of a match with two quarters left. Rodgers never got a chance to change that in overtime.
