Rodney Harrison breaks down NFL playoffs, tells story of final TD in Giants-Pats Super Bowl
NBC NFL analyst Rodney Harrison joined the show to talk about the playoffs and more.
Harrison weighed in on why Bill Belichick is so smart. He said everything Belichick tells you to do turns out to be true when you see it on tape. He said it’s all about situational football.
Harrison pointed to the Ravens’ big touchdown against the Broncos and how Denver safety Rahim Moore messed it up. “He was trying to be the hero,” Harrison said. “He was trying to be the guy who intercepted it and won the game.”
Harrison weighed in on his former team. He said Wes Welker is a key for that team. He said that he didn’t think the Pats go to their last two Super Bowls without Welker.
Harrison also talked about the Falcons, who he has been critical of. He said that they won, but they need to win more to prove they’re legit. “It’s not good enough to get to the NFC Championship game,” Harrison said.
Harrison also looked back at the Giants Super Bowl he lost. He explained that he knew something was wrong before the play. He said the Pats were in an all-out blitz. So he tried to change the call. But Junior Seau wanted to blitz and wouldn’t change that call. We all know what happened — Eli Manning hit Plaxico Burress, who was being covered by 5-foot-8 Ellis Hobbs.
