Living in Kentucky, I don’t get a chance to go to many games at Lambeau. I’d love to go once a year, but I just can’t swing it. The last game I went to was Packers/Patriots in 2014: an instant classic. Despite the injury to Aaron Rodgers and the forecast showing rain all day, I was still excited for this game. Not only would I witness Brett Hundley’s first career start, I would also be meeting up with my Pack to the Future podcast crew. I’ve known these guys for 2+ years but I had never met them in person.
The game was rainy – although not as bad as I had expected – and the Packers lost, but I had an absolute blast meeting them, as well as the other people that came out.
We had a notion to tailgate, but the planning wasn’t totally fleshed out. We showed up at the Green Bay Curling Club parking lot with a grill, meat and beer…but no utensils. After much thought, Jon produced a pair of non-rusty pliers. We all agreed we probably would not get mouth-tetanus from these and they were pressed into action. They did their job admirably and soon we were drinking Lombardi Golden Ale and eating grilled meat. Even though we were huddled under a tent to escape the rain, we were truly living our best lives.
We spent a bit of time at the Green Bay Distillery – where we met up with Christina, one of our writers – then headed into the game. It was a rainy day, but not particularly cold, so we survived just fine.
After the game, we trudged back to our car at the Green Bay Curling Club. We started talking to Al. I’m not entirely sure what his role is, but he seemed to be in charge of league play at the very least. He took us inside and turned on the lights, where we were treated to seeing the curling court with the lights on, in all its glory. I had never seen a curling court, so that was a real treat.
The Packers lost and that was upsetting, but I finally got to watch a Packers game with guys I’ve known for years, and we got to do it at Lambeau. It was a good day.
Let’s get to the film. I’m going to do something a little different this week. Instead of looking at random plays that stuck out to me, I wanted to go through every throw from Brett Hundley this week. Since the Packers are on a bye this coming week, I’m planning on covering some other notable plays in this space next week.
I wrote about Brett Hundley’s 4th quarter interception in One Big Play this week. You can check that out here. On top of breaking down the play, I also included a hand-drawn play I believe would have worked better in that situation. So, you know, that’s fun.
Davante Adams  goes in motion pre-snap, signaling man-to-man coverage. It has been well established over the years that Mike McCarthy isn’t a big fan of pre-snap motion, but it can often help determine coverages. I see pre-snap movement on this play – and in the rest of the game – as a way of McCarthy helping out his young quarterback a little.
As another way of helping out his young quarterback, McCarthy had Brett Hundley  do a play action bootleg. A bootleg pretty much cuts the field in half, giving Hundley less to worry about when going through his reads. The play action to the non-bootleg side also means less traffic on the bootleg side.
What’s more, a natural rub is built into the play. With man coverage signaled by pre-snap movement, Adams runs underneath the formation, looking to get Marshon Lattimore  caught up in all the traffic in the middle. With the linebackers flowing right to stop the run, Lattimore has to run back to the left.
That part works. Lattimore can’t escape the middle, but it doesn’t matter. Nathan Stupar  doesn’t bite on the fake, sees Adams running under the formation and picks him up out of the backfield. Hundley loses his primary read on the play, so he moves on.
Jordy Nelson  runs an out-and-up from the outside, but he can’t get separation from his man. And, even if he could, the single-high safety is lurking on that side of the field, taking away the throw over the top.
Finally, we have Lance Kendricks  off the end of the line, blocking inside before releasing outside. He doesn’t really look like he’s trying to get open, but he’s being shadowed by Lattimore, so even if he is running, he won’t be open.
Good play design, but good defense by the Saints means Hundley just has to throw it away.
Saints jump offside, Packers roll four verticals and Hundley takes a shot to Davante Adams  on a jump ball down the field. Saints get away with pass interference on the call so the Packers only pick up 5 yards on the offside. Hundley has been taking lessons from Aaron Rodgers on the hard count, and the receivers seem to know what to do once that flag has been thrown.
3rd and 1. Quick playfake to Aaron Jones  in the middle before throwing to Davante Adams , cutting under the route from Randall Cobb . This is a really great playcall. With off coverage on Adams, a quick cut under the clear out route from Cobb gives Adams a huge hole to run to after the catch.
Here’s a screenshot of the moment the ball is coming out of Hundley’s hands:
Look at all that space. Adams would have plenty of room to pick up the 1st down. Unfortunately, Hundley puts this ball behind Adams, causing Adams to stop. Stopping allowed the defense a chance to converge. Adams dropped this pass, but even if he had caught it, he wasn’t picking up the first down. This was a well-designed play that was executed poorly.
One final thing on this play: it looks like an RPO (Run Pass Option), right down to Jordy Nelson  blocking from the right side and Martellus Bennett  blocking and running under the line for a seal block. There’s no reason to think this isn’t an RPO, but I just keep wondering if it was a true RPO or just designed to look like one. Would they put that much on Hundley? Reading the defense and making a split-second call as to whether to throw or run the ball?
It would be a pretty easy read – if Adams’ man is playing off and Cobb’s man is playing tight, throw the ball – but I still don’t know if they would trust Hundley to make that call on 3rd and 1, or if they designed it to look like an RPO, while telling Hundley to throw the entire time. Without hearing about this play from the coaches, there’s no way to know for sure.
Ty Montgomery  is running a quick hook on the outside against off coverage. Easy pre-snap read for Hundley. He takes a couple steps back, sets up and gets it to Montgomery with space to move after the catch. The throw is on Montgomery, giving the defender zero chance of making a play on it. Good, quick throw for an easy completion. The ball doesn’t have a ton of zip on it, which is something to keep an eye on concerning throws to the boundary.
Two man route. Davante Adams  runs a sluggo (slant-and-go), before leveling off at the Saints 45. Jordy Nelson  initially releases to the outside before cutting in under his man and running a go route. That little move outside gets his man turned and gives Nelson inside position.
The route of Adams pulls up the single-high safety, opening a window to Nelson. Kenny Vaccaro  picks up Nelson after passing off Adams, but he’s coming from the other side of the field, giving him a slightly awkward angle.
Hundley sees Nelson and heaves it up, but he puts too much air under it and doesn’t lead Nelson. If this ball is thrown farther out in front and to the pylon, Nelson would have had a shot at this. But this throw it too far inside. Nelson has to come back to the ball and rip it out of the hands of Vaccaro.
The max protection up front gives Hundley enough time to wait for these routes to develop. He just doesn’t throw a very good pass.
Quite possibly my favorite call of the day. Packers run a fake jet sweep to Randall Cobb  coming out of the slot on the left. Meanwhile, Packers run four verticals with Davante Adams , Martellus Bennett , Geronimo Allison  and Ty Montgomery . The vertical routes pull defenders down the field. Hundley looks down the field before turning back to his right and getting the ball to Cobb in space. Easy completion for a good chunk of yards.
But wait! Look at Montgomery, running a go route from the backfield. Bennett is running a go from the right side of the line, but he curves to the middle of the field, dragging his man with him. AJ Klein  has dropped back in zone under Montgomery, but he doesn’t look like he’s going to run with Montgomery. If Hundley waits a beat, he could get this ball to Montgomery over Klein and in front of Marcus Williams  for a big gain. If he wanted to, he could pump to Cobb before going to Montgomery: Klein breaks on Cobb so quickly it’s likely a pump would pull him up a step or two, giving more room to fit the ball to Montgomery.
It’s a throw that requires anticipation and timing. There are a lot of pieces in the middle to sift through, so he has to make sure none of them are dropping under Montgomery, but he also has to make sure the throw isn’t late. It’s not the easiest throw, but it could have been a big one.
I can’t hate on Hundley for the decision he made: getting the ball to a wide-open Cobb in space is never a bad thing. But he’s going to have to start seeing these throws down the field as they develop if he wants to be successful.
Still, I’m fine with his decision here. Good play call, allowing Hundley a chance to pick up an easy completion while also giving him the opportunity to go for more.
Packers go heavy up front, with Lance Kendricks  on the left side of the line and Martellus Bennett  on the right. Randall Cobb  runs a go route on the right while Davante Adams  does the same on the left. Kendricks and Jordy Nelson  run dual outs from the left.
All that clears out room for Bennett to run a post in the middle. Bennett sells the route up the field before a quick cut inside gets him position on his defender. Hundley releases the ball on time and puts the ball low. Bennett goes down to get the pass and avoids a big hit from the deep safety.
Nice rhythm throw here.
The pocket get all jammed up in the middle by the time Hundley is at the top of his drop, so he moves to his left. I believe he would have thrown this if anyone was open, but they weren’t and he saw a clear lane to pick up the first down. In a nifty little move, he looks like he’s about to go out of bounds before cutting back in, picking up the touchdown.
On the left, it looks like we have Jordy Nelson  running a go route, while Martellus Bennett  is running a clear-out route for Randall Cobb  on a slant. Nothing opens up there. Good thing Hundley ran here, because it doesn’t look like anything else was opening up.
Good work on Aaron Jones  picking up a key block in the middle, too. He overruns it initially and slips while trying to come back, so it’s a more dangerous block than it should have been. But Jones stuck with it and it ended up being huge.
Saints bring pressure, but the line holds up well, giving Hundley a chance to survey the field. He sees Jordy Nelson  on the outside going against Ken Crawley  in man coverage. Crawley is playing inside and over-the-top of Nelson. Hundley throws back shoulder to Nelson and throws too far behind.
Davante Adams  runs the exact same route on the opposite side: get outside position, come back on the hook for a back shoulder throw. That suggests that this is a called play. When I saw this live, I didn’t know if this was on Hundley missing the throw or on Nelson not seeing the back shoulder option in time. Looking at it now, it seems that this is on Hundley missing the throw.
Packers are setting up a screen here. Aaron Jones  gets hooked trying to release out of the backfield. That delays the timing of the play, so Hundley simply throws the ball at the feet of Jones.
Jones doesn’t go down, though, and everything else looks like it sets up well. If Hundley had waited half a beat, he could be thrown a little touch pass over Tyeler Davison  into the middle of the field and Jones would have been in a great position to catch it with plenty of room to run.
I don’t fault Hundley here – the timing of a screen pass is a tricky business, as you’ll get flagged for ineligible man downfield if you hold onto the ball for too long – but this seems like a missed opportunity.
Bunch formation to the right. Hundley is initially looking at Randall Cobb  running a go route, but a linebacker drops underneath and there is a safety over the top, taking that throw away. By the time he looks for his second read, the pocket is breaking down, due in no small part to Justin McCray  getting destroyed. Hundley backs out, finds Aaron Jones  out of the backfield and gets him the ball. Nice play by Hundley to keep his head up when the pocket started to break down, and great play by Jones to get tripped up, get up and look back for the ball.
As for the playcall itself? I’m not a big fan. I like the bunch formation, but all three routes out of the bunch are of the long-developing variety. Lance Kendricks  is running a curl on the left, but he’s not the primary read on this play, so Hundley doesn’t have a chance of getting him the ball on time, and the last thing you want to do is throw late to the sideline. I’d like to see at least one receiver in that bunch run a quick hook or a crossing route, trying to set up an easy throw for Hundley.
I mentioned this on an earlier play, but I love getting Hundley out on rollouts. It takes advantage of his athleticism, buys him time and cuts the field in half. I don’t want him rolling out all the time – cutting the field in half is helpful to simplify some things for a young QB, but you don’t want to completely ignore half the field all the time – but I wouldn’d mind seeing more of it than we saw in this game.
Much like the first play we looked at, no one is open. It’s a two man route to that side – Randall Cobb  is running a slithering go route while Jordy Nelson  is running a deep out – but there’s nowhere to put the ball. Davante Adams  is running a crossing route from the other side of the field, but he’s nowhere close to open.
Hundley ends up throwing late to Cobb, but the pass falls harmlessly out of bounds.
1st and 10. Aaron Jones  simply runs into the flat behind the blocking from Randall Cobb  and Davante Adams  on the outside. I like this call on 1st and 10. Give Hundley an easy throw to pick up some easy yards. I’d love to see more of this.
Hundley misses one here. He starts this play looking down the middle of the field, where Jordy Nelson  is running a deep crossing route against zone coverage. A quick look shows the middle holding the line, not following Nelson. With the hook from Davante Adams  on that side pulling up the coverage, Nelson has a lot of space to fit this ball, as the lone defender is the deep safety over the top. Lead Nelson to the sideline and this is a huge gain.
Why does he miss it? Say it with me: lack of anticipation. He knows the routes Nelson and Adams are running, and you can see the linebackers settling in. His pocket is relatively clean, so he doesn’t need to stare this down. Take a look at Nelson, make a note of the linebackers, look off to the side, then come back to Nelson. If the linebackers are still holding that line, let it rip. Instead, he sees Nelson running into a zone with linebackers, doesn’t anticipate where the route will take him, looks off and never comes back.
He doesn’t come back to Nelson, dances around, and comes back late to Aaron Jones  out of the backfield. It’s a good play by Hundley to avoid being sacked, but his lack of defensive recognition and anticipation kills what could have been a huge play.
Remember when I was talking about wanting some quick-hitting routes out of a bunch formation earlier? This is what I was talking about. In the bunch, we have Davante Adams  running an out from the outside, Geronimo Allison  running a drag from the middle and Randall Cobb  running a drag from the inside. On the other side, Jordy Nelson  is running an out from the outside and Martellus Bennett  is running a drag route from the slot.
All that commotion in the middle is set up to free up Allison, and it works perfectly. The Saints are in zone coverage. They have two linebackers playing in the middle and three receivers flooding that zone. I’ve covered the Packers use of dueling drags earlier this season, but this is different. In the past, they’ve run drags from both sides of the line and run a dig route behind it. On this play, they run 3 drags – two from the left, one from the right – and have one of those drags pull up in the middle. With the linebackers pulled wide on the drags running across the field, Allison is left all alone in the vacated middle. Terrific play design and good execution.
Let’s just take a look at that from another angle. Watch how the linebackers fan out and leave a ton of room for Allison in the middle. I love this play.
Another quick-hitter to Geronimo Allison . This one is dropped, but I’d still like to see more of this. Dual outs on the right with Allison and Randall Cobb . Allison is covered by Sheldon Rankins  dropping off the line. Allison turns back to the ball and Hundley gets the pass out on time. Good read from Hundley and a good route by Allison. Sometimes the receiver just doesn’t make the catch. It happens.
Hundley starts by looking down the middle of the field. I don’t know why I’m stopping to talk about this now, but I am.
I can’t remember where I read this, but it stuck with me. The best thing a quarterback can do on virtually every passing play is to stare directly down the middle and trust his peripheral vision. The key is not to look at a receiver: it’s to into the void and make a note of how the pieces are moving outside of that area. It’s a good way to get a quick idea of how the defense is reacting immediately after the snap. It’s also a good way to hold the safety to the middle and not telegraph your intentions.
I can’t tell exactly, but that’s what it looks like Hundley is doing here. He starts by looking directly down the middle, then comes back over to Randall Cobb  out of the slot on the right.
Man, listen. This would be a tough throw to Cobb. The corner is in man coverage and there is a safety over the top. But the safety is in outside technique and the safety doesn’t react immediately, giving Hundley a window to fit this ball. It’s an anticipation throw. Hundley looks back as Cobb is clearing the linebacker in the middle. He needs to see that linebacker holding his zone and know he can fit this ball over the top of the linebacker and before the safety can get there. He’s looking at Cobb as this happens, then checks off. Again, it’s a tough throw, but it’s a throw Hundley needs to try to make. Cobb is there: Hundley needs to see it, recognize the linebacker’s coverage and throw it over the top. It’s only his first start, so I don’t want to be too hard on him, but he needs to improve on his anticipation.
Anyway, he doesn’t throw to Cobb, breaks the pocket, rolls left and throws a mile over the head of Aaron Jones .
Hundley has talent. I believe in him. But he needs to believe in himself a little more. If he misses the throw to Cobb and throws an interception, that’s fine. Missing a throw I can deal with, because he has the talent to make those throws. Not anticipating the route being open and holding the ball? That’s a little more concerning to me.
Five man route – with Aaron Jones  leaking out of the backfield late – and Hundley faces pressure as soon as he reaches the top of his drop. He has nowhere to go with the ball. He steps away from the first bit of pressure, but gets crushed on a blindside hit, fumbling the ball. You never like to see a strip-sack of your quarterback, but Hundley has no time to get rid of this ball and nowhere to throw it if he did.
Hundley is under pressure as soon as he gets to the top of his drop. Packers have a three-receiver route, all relatively late-developing, so Hundley is stuck. He somehow escapes and rolls out. Jordy Nelson  is hooked on his route, sells the hook, complains, sees Hundley’s miraculous escape and shadows Hundley to the sideline. Hundley whips a pass down-and-away from Nelson, and Nelson goes down to get it.
This is ridiculously impressive by Hundley.
From another angle. Hundley showing off his talent right here.
More long-developing routes. The closest thing we have to a quick-hitter is Davante Adams  on a dig out of the slot, but even that is 10 yards down the field.
Once again, Hundley is under pressure, and it’s at an inopportune time. Adams is open on the dig, Randall Cobb  has a step on his man down the field and Geronimo Allison  is open on the left, even after slipping out of his break.
But it doesn’t matter, as Hundley is being flushed from the pocket just as all of those things are happening. He gets free, sees Cobb down the field and chucks it to the sideline.
I don’t mind his decision here. The Packers are facing 2nd and long – their average 2nd down this game found them needing 7.94 yards to convert – so I’m fine with him taking a shot. It’s either take a shot to Cobb or pick up 2-3 yards on a checkdown to Aaron Jones  and face 3rd and long.
I have no issue with Hundley on this play, but I take issue with McCarthy for his insistence on calling a lot of late-breaking routes during Hundley’s first career start.
If we’re talking about creative calls, it’s hard to top this. I’ve seen the Packers do this from time-to-time and I always go crazy over it. You can basically draw a line down the middle of the field and see how they’re running two separate plays. On the right side, they’re setting up a screen to the right. On the left side, they’re running post/flat combo – Randall Cobb  and Jordy Nelson  with the posts, Martellus Bennett  with the flat – with Davante Adams  coming from right-to-left on a drag under everything else.
Since part of this is a screen, the ball has to come out quickly, and Hundley does that well. He finds Adams on the drag under the post routes.
This is 3rd and long and the Packers don’t pick up the first down, so this isn’t a successful play. But I love the concept here. Don’t be surprised to see this pop up in the next game or two.
Anticipation, anticipation, anticipation.
I know the pocket is breaking down, but Hundley is quick to flee. Martellus Bennett  flashes open down the field just as the pressure is starting to break through the line. I know it’s not easy to do, but Hundley has to anticipate that route breaking open and step up into pressure to get rid of the ball in the face of pressure.
Hundley is a little too quick to flee the pocket, missing out on a pass to Bennett. Instead, he takes off to his right, dumping the ball off to Randall Cobb  on the right.
Once again, the Packers have 3 late-breaking routes with a single checkdown option. Technically, Aaron Ripkowski  is out in the open, but he never looks back for the ball, so I don’t count him as a receiving option on this play. Hundley needs to be better about anticipating these routes, but McCarthy needs to give him more short-to-mid options.
Hundley’s playfake to Ty Montgomery  pulls up the linebackers, opening up a lane to throw to Lance Kendricks  on the corner route. He immediately gets behind the linebackers and in front of the safety. Hundley is rolling to his side, appears to be looking at him as the linebacker is desperately trying to recover, but he just doesn’t pull the trigger. By holding onto this ball, he loses his shot at Kendricks and at anyone else. He ends up just throwing it out of bounds.
McCarthy calls a rollout with a levels concept – Hundley ends up with 4 receivers in his line of vision – giving Hundley quite a few receiving options with easy reads. Hundley needs to throw this ball to Kendricks off the fake. I’m not entirely sure what caused him to hesitate here.
Packers selling four verticals here, but Jordy Nelson  runs a curl on the outside, making this three verticals and a curl.
Hundley sees man-to-man coverage on the outside and decides to throw this ball up to Davante Adams  before he snaps the ball. Adams never gets position – Martellus Bennett  has better position than Adams does – but it doesn’t matter to Hundley. Adams is a physical receiver and has proved he can go up and get a ball, so I don’t hate this. The pass does have to be in bounds, though.
That being said, I know this pass was incomplete, but this is an impressive grab by Adams.
3rd down. All routes are run short of the sticks, with no real route combinations designed to get someone enough yards after the catch to pick up the first down.
I have no idea what this call is. Judging by the reaction of Davante Adams  at the bottom of the screen, the players have no idea what this call is, either.
Three quick-hitting routes: out routes from Martellus Bennett  and Randall Cobb  on the right, dig from Geronimo Allison  on the left. Hundley looks to Bennett first, doesn’t like what he sees then comes back to Allison and fires.
This is what I like to see. There are deep routes on the outside in case Hundley sees something he thinks he can take advantage of, but he has a few short routes he can hit quickly if he feels so inclined. These kinds of plays can get the quarterback into a rhythm and also helps to pull the defense closer to the line, opening up those deep throws.
Dig/corner combination to the right, with Jordy Nelson  running a dig from the outside under the corner route from Randall Cobb . It works like a dream. Kenny Vaccaro  stays in his zone under the route of Cobb, giving Nelson a free release to the inside.
Hundley waits a beat longer to throw this than he probably should. As soon as Vaccaro turns deep, that signals to Hundley that the throw to Nelson is open. This ball should be out as Nelson is coming out of his break. If he releases this when he should, it’s doubtful this ball gets knocked down.
Despite the result, I like these routes. If Vaccaro steps down on Nelson, the corner route to Cobb is open. If that side is shut down, they’re running a deep curl/flat combination on the left side with Davante Adams  and Aaron Jones . The deep curl from Adams drags the zone defender down the field, opening a quick throw to Jones out of the flat.
These combinations give the option for a couple quick-hitters, with the possibility of hitting something a bit deeper down the field if the outside zone defenders pull up. Good concept here.
I feel like I picked on Brett Hundley a lot in this post, and some of that is fair. It was his first start, so it’s not exactly realistic to expect him to perform at the level of Aaron Rodgers (or even Aaron Rodgers-lite).
That being said, he missed quite a few reads that could have led to big plays. The good news is that he seemed to be going through his progressions well. The bad news is that he was hesitant to pull the trigger on quite a few plays. That could just be a confidence and “speed of the game” thing. He has been in the system for 3 years, so I would hope he knows what the playcalls are, but practice speed is not the same as game speed. He needs to trust himself and throw the ball on-time. I made mention of it a thousand times, but his anticipation on when routes were opening up was poor. He’ll need to improve on that if the Packers have any hope of making the playoffs.
That being said, Mike McCarthy is not blameless here. It was hard to distinguish much of a difference between the offense Hundley was running this past weekend vs. the offense Aaron Rodgers runs. I know that it’s the same organization, but McCarthy needs to help out Hundley a little more. He can’t expect Hundley to step in and make a series of impossible throws every week. We saw some quick-hitting plays mixed in here, as well as some plays designed to scheme guys open. That was great, but there needs to be more of that.
I also wouldn’t mind if the Packers game out against the Lions after the bye and had Hundley firing out of the gate. I said Hundley needs to trust himself, but it may be hard to find that confidence and rhythm when you only attempt 2 official passes in the first quarter. If Hundley is “the guy,” McCarthy needs to put some faith in him.
I also would love to see some more mid-range routes. I saw a lot of short stuff and a lot of deep stuff, but not a whole lot in the 10-15 yard range. Utilize that portion of the field. Use natural rubs. Use levels concepts. More bunch formations. More pre-snap motion. Whatever McCarthy has hiding in his bag, now is the time to break it out. Yes, Hundley missed some reads and throws, but I still like what he can bring to the table. If McCarthy makes some adjustments to the gameplan, I believe Hundley can be successful.
This wasn’t the best showing – by Hundley or McCarthy – but I believe there’s enough there to have hope. At least, that’s what I’m telling myself.
- On top of finally meeting the Pack to the Future podcast guys, I also got to go to a Bloody Good Horror meet-up this weekend. I know I’ve talked about them before, but I’ll talk about them again. I love horror movies but don’t have a ton of people in my life who share that passion. I started looking around for podcasts and went through a couple different ones I didn’t care for before I found BGH. I fell in love immediately and have been a weekly listener ever since. That started 4+ years ago for me. As it so happened, they were having a 10 year anniversary in Milwaukee the day before this game. So I bought a ticket and went over to Great Lakes Distillery to meet the crew, some writers and a bunch of fans. The turnout was insane and everyone was amazing. When it came time for trivia, I ended up sitting at a table with a bunch of “The New Class.” And, while I was quite a bit older than all of them, I was welcomed with open arms. As it turns out, the table I was at came in second place in horror trivia. I’ll be waiting by my mailbox for my trophy.
Since I was going by myself, I was a little hesitant to go and almost cancelled at the last minute. But I’m so glad I went. I had an absolute blast and got to meet/hang out with some amazing people.
If you’re into horror at all, do yourself a favor and check them out.
Brett Hundley’s yards per attempt weren’t particularly good. He only attempted 2 passes in the first quarter, so that number isn’t surprising. He only had 5 attempts in the 4th quarter and didn’t fare particularly well, either.
While we’re bringing each other down, here is QB Rating by Quarter. When you only attempt 5 passes in a quarter and one of them is an interception, that number is going to look really bad.
As expected from the previous charts, Hundley’s numbers don’t look good no matter who he was targeting.
He didn’t complete a single pass to the deep portion of the field (15+ yards).
Let’s end on a good note.
I took this picture as the Packers were running out of the tunnel. What a beautiful stadium. There’s nothing like it.
