    I don’t think that Rodgers to Adams fade was defendable, Lewis did what he could but that was perfection.

      It was a great throw and catch, but Lewis didn’t get his head around anywhere close to being in time. It was almost comical how late he was getting turned around. Still, he defended another very similar throw two plays earlier, so it’s tough to break up EVERY ONE of those throws. A tip of the cap has to go to Rodgers/Adams.

        Yeah Michigan QBs can learn much from Rodgers regarding throwing fades (and everything else), his accuracy is insane.
