Brett Hundley

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. WAS

After “studying the tape” (that sounds better than “turning on the computer”), here are the heroes and the zeros from Saturday’s 21-17 preseason win over Washington: HEROES BACKUP QUARTERBACKS – Brett Hundley‘s numbers were excellent (9 of 10 for 107 yards and 1 TD), but they don’t do him justice. Under decent pressure and with

Q&A: King Or Watt?

I‘ll be answering your questions each Saturday from now until the end of the 2017 season (hopefully that’ll be in February). Here are some of this week’s submissions: Why do you think Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy (I assume he had to be directly involved in the decision) let Eddie Lacy go? Even when overweight

Letters From Camp: Day 2

Dear Packers fans, Friday was a perfect day for the second practice of training camp. The skies were crystal clear and the temperature was in the upper 60s. Here’s what I saw: -It’s never a good idea to read too much into what happens early in training camp, but it sure looks like coordinator Dom

Observations From The Offseason

The Packers concluded their offseason program with last week’s three-day minicamp.

Starter (A+): Aaron Rodgers struggled a bit early, but ended the season playing the position about as well as it’s ever been played. New England’s Tom Brady will likely win the Lombardi Trophy and Atlanta’s Matt Ryan will probably win the MVP, but

Hundley’s Time To Shine

Scott Tolzien signed with Indy for a number of reasons, but none was bigger than to get away from Brett Hundley, Green Bay’ second-year quarterback who showed so much promise last summer. In fact, it was obvious two weeks into camp that the former UCLA star was going to be Aaron Rodgers’ backup in 2016.

Best Moves Of 2015

Now that another Packers’ season has come to an end, it’s once again time to look back at the best moves made by GM Ted Thompson in the past calendar year. 1) SIGNING JAMES JONES – Bringing back the veteran wide receiver may have seemed like a no-brainer, but hey, you’d be surprised by how many

High And Lows Of Camp

Now that training camp and the preseason is mercifully over, let’s take a look back at some of the highs and some of the lows from the past six weeks: Biggest surprises (players): Former UCLA star Brett Hundley was the most impressive rookie quarterback I’ve seen in over three decades of following the Packers… Third-round pick
