Off the top of his head, Micah Hyde says he can’t recall all the different roles he has filled for Green Bay this season.
He also was unable to immediately recall how many defensive backs hes worked alongside because of the injuries that have hit the Packerssecondary.
That’s a good question, a laughing Hyde told co-host Bill Polian and me earlier this week on SiriusXM NFL Radio. Ive got to sit down and actually think about that.
Fortunately for Green Bay, Hyde hasnt sat for a game this season. If he had, Hyde and his teammates might be watching on the couch rather than playing in Sundays NFC title game at Atlanta.
The Packers were also decimated by injuries and it started with Brice. The Packers also lost defensive back Micah Hyde (shoulder), linebacker Jake Ryan (shoulder), running back Ty Montgomery (ribs), and offensive linemen Lane Taylor (knee) and T.J. Lang (knee).
It might not have mattered, even with a fully healthy Packers team, the way the Falcons played Sunday. It was pick your poison against the Packers defense.
Ryan will likely be the NFL MVP and played like it Sunday, completing passes to eight different receivers.
It’s exciting, Ryan told Fox Sports. We were great today in all three phases. It feels pretty good.
The Falcons were the NFL’s highest scoring team this season and set a franchise record with 540 points scored during the regular season. Atlanta averaged 40 points in it’s two playoff victories and will be a dangerous team for either the Patriots or Steelers in the Super Bowl.
