Jourdan Lewis was in a tough spot Sunday when Aaron Rodgers threw a perfect ball over him to Davante Adams to give the Green Bay Packers a win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Lewis, a rookie cornerback from Michigan, has heard some criticism about the play from one of the loudest voices in the NFL.
Skip Bayless weighed in on the throw, saying it was easy for Rodgers because of Lewis’ height (5-foot-10).
Without 6-1, 205-lb vet Nolan Carroll, Cowboys had to put 5-10 rookie JLewis on 6-2, 220-lb DAdams. Easy winning throw for ARodg.

Lewis fired back Tuesday morning. He told Bayless “height has nothing to do with it. If you really knew football you would know a back shoulder fade is technique.”

Lewis is certainly not the first cornerback Aaron Rodgers has beat with a good throw. And he won’t be the last athlete to call out Balyess’ opinions.
