To be fair (and yes Nak sucked that day and all season)....but Norman was so out of position and beaten on the play that it was just pathetic.

 

He was as much to blame as Nak.

 

Oh yeah, I was going to mention Norman as well but figured I'd just stick with Naka since he was the one who actually attempted to make a move on the ball.

 

But yeah like you said... no excuses for how far off of Roddy Norman was.  Even worse it looks like he's kind of got a lackadaisical jog going on in that gif like he isn't even attempting to catch back up with White.  I just think it's sad that as good of position that Nakamura was in he fuged up as bad as he did... he literally just has to throw a hand up and bam, no play.  Who knows, we might've gotten a safety or something on the next set of downs with how balls-to-the-wall our pass rush was that day.

Norman went for the double move. One could argue thats an ok  risk to take because he knew he had help from Nak deep.

Norman was beaten by almost 10 yards on that play.

 

He was the main reason....Nak just could not get there over the top.

Valid point.

 

But, there is a difference in biting on the double move.....and swallowing the the move hook, line, and sinker.

 

Norman was flat out juked and abused on that play.

 

Hope the benching late in the season wakes that boy up.

Yea but he should have known that Nak sucks.

Sure, it was the wrong decision. Happens all the time to every corner in the league. Hell, even AE benefited from it last year. We would not even be discussing it now if Nak had made the routine play he should have.

I realize people love to hate Nakamura and make excuses for Norman but Norman got embarrassed on that play. Nakamura was at least there to make a reasonable play on the ball. Roddy White is simply much better than either of them.

Well, those wrong decisions were frequent enough and bad enough to get his ass benched

 

He was terrible on that play.....plain and simple.

That assumes at 37 he would be the starter.  That is not assured at all.  He only started 7 games for the Packers last year.

 

I think Woodson would be better than Naka if he was 50 years old
