WATCH: Kevin O’Connell breaks down Harrison Smith interception

·1 min read

There really is a new era inside TCO Performance Center with the new regime.

Head coach Kevin O’Connell led his team to a 23-7 victory over the Green Bay Packers and there were many great plays from the game.

With the Vikings radio network color commentator Pete Bercich, O’Connell broke down safety Harrison Smith’s 30th career interception.

He did a great job breaking it down by explaining defensive coordinator Ed Donatell’s coverage structure. Smith could be doing a lot of different things based on this look and according to O’Connell “they have no idea” what Smith is going to do and needing to see it post-snap. Doing that gives the defense an inherent advantage.

Rodgers didn’t have anywhere to go with the football because the coverage was balanced both front and back. It’s a breath of fresh air to see our head coach breaking things down without giving away any trade secrets.
