Packers: Analyzing DeShone Kizer ahead of second preseason game

Green Bay Packers quarterback DeShone Kizer played well against the Tennessee Titans in the preseason opener, but is he poised to be the key backup going into 2018? DeShone Kizer looked good last week against Tennessee, but most Packers fans are wondering if the rookie QB is fit to be the backup to Aaron Rodgers.

Brett Hundley is auditioning to play somewhere else in Packers preseason

Brett Hundley is auditioning to play somewhere else in Packers preseason

Green Bay already knows Hundley isn’t a serviceable backup. He’s not staying as long as DeShone Kizer stays healthy. The Green Bay Packers already know what Brett Hundley looks like if pressed into duty as the starting quarterback in relief of an injured Aaron Rodgers. Three wins in nine tries plus more than half of the Vikings game in which Rodgers got hurt. Two ugly shutouts, no touchdown passes at home in five games, twice failing to break 100 yards passing, and five times unable to get to 200. Despite some moments of brilliance — several clutch plays and a number of quality...

David Bakhtiari & Jaire Alexander returned to practice on Sunday

For once, there’s good news on the injury front out of Green Bay. Green Bay Packers fans who watched Thursday’s preseason game saw a tired and all-too-common occurrence when the first-team offense took the field. Quarterbacks Brett Hundley and DeShone Kizer were under frequent pressure in the early stages of the game, particularly while Kyle Murphy and Byron Bell lined up at the offensive tackle positions. Hundley was sacked once, stripped of the football by rookie Harold Landry who had beaten Murphy around the edge. Pass-rusher Gemil President probably should have been credited with a...

Friday Cheese Curds: Backup quarterbacks show growth in Packers’ win over Titans

Hundley, Kizer and even Boyle showed promise in their first game action of 2018 With a 31-17 win over the Tennessee Titans last night, the Green Bay Packers began to see the answers to some of the questions on the roster come into focus. The battle for the backup quarterback position commenced with Brett Hundley, DeShone Kizer and Tim Boyle all showing positive signs of development. Hundley kicked things off with a touchdown drive and Kizer got all the way to to the Tennessee 4-hard line before missing a couple fade passes to force Green Bay to kick a field goal. Boyle then came in and...

Packers vs. Titans First Half Game Thread

Join us for the first half of the Packers’ preseason opener against the Titans. GREEN BAY PACKERS FOOTBALL IS FINALLY BACK! It’s officially preseason football time as the Packers host the Tennessee Titans for both teams’ exhibition openers this evening.

MM: Hundley & Kizer will get ‘balance in reps’ in preseason opener

MM: Hundley & Kizer will get ‘balance in reps’ in preseason opener

On Tuesday, Mike McCarthy revealed that both Hundley and Kizer will get roughly equal reps but would not say who would start. The Green Bay Packers begin their preseason schedule on Thursday with a home game against the Tennessee Titans, and this year the team has a bona fide competition for the backup quarterback job. 2015 draft pick Brett Hundley is working against new arrival DeShone Kizer for the rights to back up Aaron Rodgers, and both are expected to see significant playing time on Thursday. However, in his Tuesday press conference, head coach Mike McCarthy declined to give any...
