MICAH HYDE: Hyde made the comment a few weeks ago that he “is supposed to get interceptions.”
It seems that Hyde had a chip on his shoulder – being teased for not tallying a single career interception in his rookie outing and thus far this 2014 season. Against the Chicago Bears, Hyde connected with an errant Cutler pass and notched his first pick.
Since then, he has accumulated two more – and added a punt return for a 75-yard touchdown. Hyde is just finding ways to contribute. He is an amazing coverage guy – he has been a staple at the safety position all year, opposite Morgan Burnett and Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix.
His versatility and speed make him a force to be reckoned with on defense and special teams.Hyde is a playmaker and the Packers are making good on the practice of using their playmakers in all situations.
Hyde will continue to find ways to elevate this team because he is making the most of every opportunity that he sees.
