Morning Buzz: Will Brett Hundley sink or swim?
Welcome to your game-day Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers as they get ready to take on the New Orleans Saints.
As always on game day, we start with Tom Silverstein’s 5 Things To Watch.
There’s no way quarterback Brett Hundley will be able to make all the changes at the line of scrimmage that Aaron Rodgers did, so players are going to have to be patient and follow his lead.
“Aaron can cover a lot of things up,” receiver Jordy Nelson said. “He knows the playbook in and out. He knows the defenses in and out. He knows what he wants. So, if something doesn’t sound right, it triggers in his head, and he can change it to what he wants.”
Hundley knows many of the same things, but they won’t come to mind as fast and so don’t be surprised if there’s less no-huddle and fewer run-pass option plays.
Tom also writes on Brett Hundley’s connection with his wide receivers.
