Football is fun, and everyone should be able to enjoy it. Each week, I’m going to try and post some of the more interesting clips form each game; not necessarily the touchdowns, takeaways, or big hits, but clips that are interesting regardless of their designation.
So, without further ado, here are your 2016 week 14 bonus clips!
Adams vs Sherman, Round 1
Richard Sherman has built a reputation for being a dirty player. Sometimes that’s true; other times, not so much. I’ll let you be the judge here. In real time, this one was hard to notice. Upon further review, however, it was quite easy to see.
This angle shows when the ball was in the air.
Adams vs Sherman, Round 2
Choo Choo! All about the hype train! There’s plenty of room if you had fallen off.
Michael Bennett and Bobby Wagner both bite inside on Montgomery hard, losing contain. Before reveling in a stumbling, defeated Sherman, watch Lane Taylor at left guard. KJ Wright jumps inside so much that Taylor doesn’t even touch anybody! He could have rolled on the ground complaining about the price of dog food, and had just as much of an impact. This is a good thing.
Onto the good stuff. Redemption is a great feeling; this game felt like a bit of a redemption game from the Packers after the great playoff debacle of 2015. As for footowork; this is a proper “stalk block”, where the receiver essentially “stalks” his defender before making contact. This isn’t a block designed to knock some off their cleats, it’s designed to just get in their way. Mission accomplished and then some.
Aaron Rodgers is better than you, pt. 3,246,805
Pay attention to the feet here. Without even thinking about setting his feet and stepping into it, Rodgers makes this throw look like he’s not even interested. A warm-up throw. Unreal.
And before you know it, he’s back doing it again. This time, there’s 6’4”, 246 lbs of pressure in his face.
DeShawn Shead goes skating
Davante had it going this game, and could have quite possibly scored on this play.
If you don’t run good routes, it doesn’t really matter how good your hands are, because you won’t ever see a football thrown your way. Adams has certainly learned this lesson in 2016, because his route running has become tremendous.
Give a little credit to Shead here though; that head-bob means he knows he’s been beaten, and is trying like hell to get back to stop a score. Luckily for him it was just a bit far.
Let’s try to read lips here. What do you think he’s saying?
God dangit? Cat singing? Hot chowdah? My money’s on hot chowdah. Comment below with your thoughts!
