This week’s MMQB by Peter King started off with some very serious and impactful news from the labor trenches by Jim Trotter.
Then it got into the fun stuff — football. King reviewed the NFL Films’ Packers Super Bowl video, which should contain enough goodies to keep the green and gold faithful content until DVDs are obsolete. (Or has that happened already?)
King writes about Clay Matthews essentially calling his shot before forcing a fumble to open the fourth quarter. We saw that terrific clip on Sound FX on NFL Network, but King mentions a few other notable moments we hadn’t heard of before.
Before facing third-and-10 with six minutes to go, Aaron Rodgers said to the huddle, “We’re going to be champions tonight.”
Moments later, Rodgers delivered the key throw of the game, a laser to Greg Jennings.
Jennings helped build his own legend in the game as well. He begged coach Mike McCarthy to call a corner route in the end zone because of something he saw in Pittsburgh’s coverages.
That’s exactly what McCarthy did, and it led to a wide open touchdown in the fourth quarter.
