Not many are talking about how we couldn't put pressure on the QB w/o sending in a blitz and putting our DBs in single coverage. Not many are talking about all of the breakdowns in coverage.
I understand Kubiak is the HC and deserves most of the blame, but Wade should be right there 2nd in line for his worst game as a Texan.
Rodgers is 1 of those qb's who thrives on pressure-styled defenses like Wade's. During his SB run, he systematically dismantled ATL's defense b/c every time guys like Abraham got up field and came after him, he spinned out of it & got out of the pocket to find guys downfield. Every time they blitzed, he'd did the same thing or found his guys quickly on slants.....He did the same thing to Pitt in the SB.
The best way to handle him is to zone him up and force him on those 14 play drives..hope to get your hands on a few balls and limit his possessions.
