After the big play by the Browns Saturday night where Graham Harrell was strip-sacked on third down resulting in a Cleveland touchdown, many fans were instantly up in arms over the lack of protection for the Packers' third string quarterback. I must have received no less than 5 Tweets, instantly after that play, condemning my endorsement of T.J. Lang earlier in camp. (I might remind those folks that I was endorsing Lang as a guard, not as a tackle, which is what he was playing on that play, but I digress...)
Here's the play in question:
Here's what I know.
The original call was a run that was changed to a pass by Harrell at the line.
D.J. Williams blew the protection.
I don't know anything more than that, but I got those two pieces of information from a couple different sources on the team.
It's a good reminder for fans everywhere, including myself, that despite what we think we "know" when watching a game live, there are many factors that remain a mystery to us and more often than not remain so.
