I was watching the Packers get dismantled by the Giants last night & really didn't understand what I was seeing. Hoping you guys could help me figure it out.

Aaron Rogers was not throwing the ball to his receivers, even though they looked more open against the Giants zone than they did against our man coverage. For just about every pass he threw against us, every ball was challenged & every receiver had a CB in his pocket.

Coverage looked much looser last night but Rogers wouldn't pull the trigger. Just about every sack last night was a coverage sack.

Why? Why would he throw the ball to a man who looked covered (vs us) & not throw it to a man who looked open (vs the Giants)?

Rodgers plays against a lot more man on man coverage, since they run out of 4-5 receiver sets on a regular basis. I guess zone confuses him a bit more. Rodgers does check down if he needs to, but sometimes he just wants the big play and it was not there yesterday and that's why they got hammered.
