There may be no more visibly important bodyguards in the state of Wisconsin than Aaron Rodgers' offensive line.
On "Packers Live" which airs on TODAY'S TMJ4 and NBC26, the Green Bay Packers' Josh Sitton explains the biggest key to how he and his teammates get the job done, particularly at his position of left guard.
"It's all about hand placement," said Sitton about his matchups with defensive tackles.
"Since I've been on the left side...the left is my outside hand. It's all about getting my hand inside of his hand. He's trying to get his hand inside of my breastplate. If I get their first, I'm going to win anytime."
Sitton took fans through a pair of plays which revealed such techniques, along with one against the Cincinnati Bengals which turned out to be a pretty big pass play.
But he broke the rules a bit.
"It's actually a pretty awful block by me...pretty ugly. My left hand...I hook his leg and pull him down. Don't tell anybody, though."
