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...

Packers’ rookie CBs both have good odds to win Defensive Rookie of the Year

Packers’ rookie CBs both have good odds to win Defensive Rookie of the Year

An online sportsbook has each of the Packers’ top two rookies in the top 12 candidates for this year’s award. Defensive Rookie of the Year awards tend to go to players who fill up the stat sheet with gaudy numbers. In the past eight years, the trend has swing away from impactful inside linebackers — who won the award five out of six years from 2004 to 2009 — over to edge rushers and cornerbacks. Recent winners Marshon Lattimore and Marcus Peters were among the league leaders in interceptions and pass breakups as rookies. Edge rushers Von Miller and Joey Bosa were sacking...

Jalen Ramsey doesn’t think Aaron Rodgers sucks, which is pretty high praise

Jalen Ramsey doesn’t think Aaron Rodgers sucks, which is pretty high praise

The outspoken corner has flaming-hot takes on a lot of QBs, but Rodgers isn’t among those players. In his two years in the NFL, Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey has quickly become one of the league’s most vocal trash-talkers and outspoken young players. His belief in his own ability is astronomical, and his stats (and honors) bear that out. In those two seasons, Ramsey has started every game while recording a total of six interceptions and 31 pass defenses. He also earned Pro Bowl and first-team All-Pro honors in 2017. However, Ramsey is not one to hold back his opinions...

Wednesday Curds: Packers’ defense needs key players back on the field

Thankfully, it appears that most of these players are making good progress from injuries. If the Green Bay Packers want their defense to help put the 2018 squad over the top and help them to another championship, it is going to need to receive significant contributions from rookies. However, one of the most important players for new coordinator Mike Pettine is one who has not yet taken a snap all offseason. That player is outside linebacker Nick Perry, whose ankle surgery has kept him out of drills starting in OTAs and carrying through to this week. Perry is the Packers’ most consistent...
