Second-and-Ten: A look back at the most pivotal plays from the Packers’ week 3 loss Every game comes down to four or five plays and the team who makes the most of them Womens Josh Jackson Jersey , or the biggest of them inevitably wins. In a new weekly series, we take a second look at the plays that defined the game in the Packers 31-17 loss to Washington. Alex Smith to Vernon Davis on third down The entire game looks different if the Packers just get off the field on third down for Washington’s very first drive. Instead, Alex Smith finds Vernon Davis for 20 yards on third-and-1 and we know who what happened after that. Initially, it seems HaHa Clinton-Dix is woefully out of position, and while that’s true, it’s by design from Washington. Jay Gruden designed a beautiful play, guessing the Packers would be in man coverage, and his offense executed it to perfection. The two receivers stacked to the right side of the formation run their own combination route, but they’re really just there to create a mass of bodies for the safety covering Davis to navigate. Clinton-Dix predictably struggles and even without that trash to sift through, probably wouldn’t have been fast enough to stick with Davis. This is just a great design from the Washington offense. They practice too. Alex Smith hits Paul Richardson for 46-yard touchdownImmediately after the above, Jay Gruden dials up a shot play at midfield, a common call on first down from that position. It’s also the perfect one. Posts against Cover-4 are difficult to cover and Richardson runs a beautiful route to push rookie Jaire Alexander wide to create more space to the middle for Alex Smith to find him. Here’s the problem: Kentrell Brice sees this all the way. He recognizes early in the play what Richardson is doing, runs with him down the middle of the field and simply loses track of both the ball and his man. If, when Brice turns his head, he’s able to find the ball, this could have easily been an interception because the ball is short and too far to the middle of the field where help is. He can thank an excellent rush from Mike Daniels for that. But not only did he lose the ball, he lost his man who had slid in behind him to find the ball. This is another perfect call against the coverage they thought they’d get, but Brice is there to make the play. He has to make it. Cobb’s drop on third downWashington scores, and now the Packers have a chance to answer. They already got a nice run from Jamaal Williams and have a little bit working, but now face a third-and-9. McCarthy leaves Jimmy Graham in to block and release, a move that seems curious, but actually works ideally for the play as it draws the linebacker to the right side, vacating the space Cobb occupied. Rodgers puts the ball right on his hands and Cobb drops it. It would have been first-and-10 at the Packers 48. Green Bay could have stuck with the run game that actually worked all afternoon. Much like Davante Adams’ drop early in the Vikings game, this set a bad tone for the game. Rodgers misses Adams on third downIt may seem like the Packers were down 28-0 before anyone had a chance to look up, but that’s just not true. After the first Washington touchdown drive, the Packers defense got a stop on the ensuing possession, turning the ball back to Aaron Rodgers down just 7-0. Any kind of points on this drive changes the complexion of the game. Facing third-and-3 from their own 30, the Packers spread the field and run two well-designed combination routes. At the bottom is a classic slant-arrow with Adams and Ty Montgomery. At the top, with Jimmy Graham in the slot Womens Clay Matthews Jersey , it’s a duckout play the Packers love to run with the outside receivers running slants to clear space (not dissimilar from the design of the Vernon Davis play). Rodgers has his pick of matchups here and decides (rightly) to look for Adams. He may be expecting Adams to sit down a little bit more and Adams will tell you he should have caught this, but if Rodgers puts this out front, he’s one linebacker missed tackle away from being off to the races. Packers punt and before they get the ball back it’s 14-0. Holding penalty negates Aaron Rodgers’ first down run The first good drive of the game for the Packers bogged down in the red zone. With Green Bay facing third-and-10 from the 17-yard line, Rodgers stepped up on a gimpy knee and sprinted toward the first down marker. He picks it up, giving the Packers a first down inside the five.Except it didn’t count. Bryan Bulaga gets called for a hold, a soft call, but not an awful one. Packers have to replay the down with 3rd-and-20. It goes predictably wrong and the Packers have to settle for 14-3 instead of 14-7. Alex Smith converts 3rd-and-7 with his legs This was perhaps the most underrated play of the entire game. If Mike Pettine’s group can get a stop on 3rd-and-7, they can keep it a one-score contest. Great coverage forces Alex Smith to buy time and get outside the pocket and Jermaine Whitehead closes down that space in a hurry. He’s in a good spot to make this only a two-yard gain. A terrible angle and even worse effort results in a first down for Washington. They score on the very next play and it’s 21-3 instead of 17-3. This missed tackle on what should be a routine play cost the Packers four points.Geronimo Allison 64-yard touchdown Geronimo Allison is a bonafide NFL playmaker and we’re seeing it so far this season. This play was one of the few well-executed plays from start to finish offensively. Green Bay gets the coverage it wants with Josh Norman playing zone on the boundary expecting help to the middle of the field. An Aaron Rodgers pump fake on the slant gets the safety to react, leaving the middle wide open.That is how you run a slant-and-go concept. And just like that, it’s a two-score game again. All the Packers needed to do was get a stop with the offense set to get the ball back coming out of halftime. Vernon Davis 50-yard wheel routeBut then this happened. Jay Gruden called a magnificent game against the Packers and it’s worth wondering if the defense is already showing some tendencies by down and distance. Gruden read Pettine’s mail the entire first half, predicting what kind of coverage he’d be in and picking the perfect play. In this case, emphasis on “picking.” Mike McCarthy chalked this up to alignment issues, but it also looks like Davon House doesn’t see the pick developing. His man, Paul Richardson comes inside and doesn’t even have a route. This is just a pick. Richardson sells, “I swear I’m not touching him or trying to pick him,” and Jackson has no shot from there. It doesn’t help that Vernon Davis runs 4.5 and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix plays this about as poorly as a safety can, but this is terrific design from Washington and they executed it.Cobb’s drop on 4th and-2 Ugh. For all the issues the Packers had, if they make just this play, they have a chance to win. Rodgers and Adams connected on a chunk play to put the Packers in position to go for it on fourth down. They have a solid play called and Cobb gets open underneath. He’s one of the most efficient, sure-handed receivers in football. Oops. If he hangs on, its 1st-and-10 at the Washington 43, down 28-17. Just run it twice and they’re in field goal range. One-score game. Everything could go differently. Instead, it’s a drop and the Packers last best chance to make it a game goes begging. Lane Kendricks back-breaking drop on 3rd-and-10Even with everything that’s gone wrong to this point, all the drops and penalties and issues, this third down, set up by a penalty on a previous 3rd-and-14 conversion by Ty Montgomery, still could have put the Packers in position to win. On a 3rd-and-10 from the 16-yard line, Rodgers buys time and finds his backup tight end Lance Kendricks streaking down the right sideline. It’s a second-reaction play and Kendricks, due to his athleticism Marcedes Lewis Jersey White , runs right by the linebacker.This is what Green Bay brought him here to do. And he dropped it. A catch gives them a first down in Washington territory, once again just a few precious yards from Mason Crosby range with a touchdown possible. Instead, the Packers don’t even have a chance to go for it even if they wanted to with such a long fourth down play. The Randall Cobb fumble put this game to bed, but failing to make this play felt like the dagger for the Packers. More than a surname binds Nasir and Herb Adderley, distant-but-oh-so-close cousins from Philadelphia who are separated in age by six decades but tethered tight by love, creed and football.The post-millennial and soon-to-be octogenarian make up one of the best stories of the 2019 NFL draft .Nasir, a free safety from the University of Delaware, is a projected high pick, maybe even a first-rounder like Herb, the Hall of Fame cornerback selected 12th overall in 1961, then starred for Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers.Nasir said he wouldn’t be the player or even the person he is today without Herb’s help.“He’s been such a tremendous influence on me,” Nasir said. “Obviously, on the field, but also as a man. He was always asking about school. He’s just a very loving individual, very supportive. He’s a man of God like I am. I just love speaking with him and I’m very happy to have him in my life.”Nasir first reached out to Herb after losing his grandfather, Nelson Adderley, who was first cousin with Herb’s father, Charles Adderley, in 2008.Raised by his mother, Ria, a store manager, Nasir never knew his father. So his male role model was his grandfather, who played football at Ohio State and in the Canadian Football League, and whose death hit Nasir hard.“I was really just out there on my own, raised by a single mom. Just me, my mom and my little sister,” Nasir said. “I just had to be the man of the house and he essentially gave me a male figure in my life.”Herb advised Nasir about school and sports, dating and driving, faith and family.And Mike Daniels Jersey , of course, football.They started calling or texting nearly every day, and when they exchanged videos of their football games, the first thing Nasir noticed was how different the sport was.“I mean, that game definitely was a lot different back in his day, just the way you were able to tackle back then,” Nasir marveled. “But I really enjoyed watching film of him. I mean, he was an incredible athlete.”Herb popped in Nasir’s tapes from Great Valley High School and felt like he was looking into a mirror, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound carbon copy of himself.“Wow! There are so many similarities,” Herb recalled. “Body structure-wise, tendencies on the field, movements, athletic ability, body control. I said, ‘Well, doggone, he’s so much like me.’ But then, it’s in our DNA.”It wasn’t difficult for Nasir to relate to a man 58 years his elder.“Everyone around me says I’m older than my years, and I think that myself,” Nasir said. “I mean, I had to grow up faster than maybe a lot of people my age. I have a lot of respect for my elders and I know they’ve been through the ropes, and they’ve seen a lot. I love to learn and I know knowledge is power.”By the time Nasir was ready to get recruited, Herb reached out to his alma mater, Michigan State, to tell them another Adderley was ready to become a Spartan.“And they totally ignored me,” Herb said. “But Nasir told me that Delaware had called and he thought it was a good fit.”The Fightin’ Blue Hens wanted Nasir to switch to defense, too.“So, I’m thinking the coaches must see something in him the way Lombardi saw something in me Jason Spriggs Jersey White ,” said Herb, who was converted to cornerback in the pros after being an All-Big Ten running back in East Lansing.During one of Nasir’s calls, he told Herb he was moving to cornerback.“My goodness,” Herb said. “Which side?”“Left side,” Nasir replied.“And I’m thinking, OK, this has to be part of the master plan,” Herb said. “Because now he’s playing the same position that I played and this is the position that I can help him the most at.”Nasir excelled at cornerback for two years, but deep down, Herb knew free safety was his natural position.“Why do you say that?” Nasir wondered.“Because that was my natural position,” Herb replied. “But when I mentioned it to coach Lombardi, he said, ‘I can’t do that because if I did, what’s going to happen to Willie Wood?'”Nasir proved Herb right when he moved over to safety for his final two seasons at Delaware, becoming one of the best free safeties in the country and one of the most versatile DBs in this draft.“He has everything it takes to be a great NFL defensive back,” Herb said. “It fills my heart with joy.”Herb said the reason Nasir has thrived under his tutelage is that the building blocks span generations.“It’s not doing the right thing sometimes, it’s doing the right thing all the time regardless of what you’re doing, no matter the profession or discipline,” Herb said, cdamentally sound and disciplined. And of course, having athletic ability, which Nasir has an overabundance of.”Nasir has rented out a room for two nights in case he doesn’t get selected until the second round Friday, and he’s still trying to figure out if Herb can get there. Hobbled by age and old football injuries, Herb requires a walker to get around. So if he can’t make it to Nasir’s draft celebration, you can bet he’ll be the first one Nasir calls.Both men know they’ll always be compared to each other, which might seem like a lot to put on a young man just starting out.“Nah,” said Nasir. “It’s a blessing.”
