Five More Thoughts on Packers’ 23-16 Win Over Bears
First of all, I might be still be in disbelief.
The Green Bay Packers won a game with Brett Hundley at quarterback. Granted, it was over the Chicago Bears. But hell, I’ll take any win over those dirtbags.
And I will give you this too. I have always thought the Green Bay Packers could win with Brett Hundley at quarterback. Having the good fortune of living in Los Angeles, I saw the kid play at UCLA. He was terrific there. He’s not Aaron Rodgers, but you could see a few things.
He could make the throws, he was a confident leader and he could pull shit out of his ass and win games, simply because he was that good.
I’m not suggesting Hundley is the second coming after one win, but I love that he got that first win and he did it against a pretty damn good defense.
Let’s get on with it.
The first and foremost thing that sticks out to me is that damn catch Davante Adams made to put the Packers at 23. And let’s not discount the throw. Hell, that was an Aaron Rodgers’ throw. I’m going to drop this into the only place it’s possible to drop it into. I’m going to trust my guy to make the catch. Adams has proven himself capable of this before. He was huge on Sunday — five for 90 and that touch. For some reason, Hundley doesn’t have anything with Jordy Nelson, but he seems to be developing it with Davante.
Welcome Back, Kotter
If you get that reference, you’re old. Or you’re a sweathog. But hey, somehow Nick Perry sacked the quarterback three times on Sunday. Perry and the Packers’ pass rush (hello! Clay Matthews) has been non-existent for most of the season. The biggest detriment of that defense. Perry decided to show up on Sunday, though. Is he back and ready to be the guy the Packers are paying him to be? Or is he just piling up on the Bears? That is the question.
Give Me Ty
For some reason, Mike McCarthy always seems to earn my nickname for him — Buffoon — when it comes to the running game. Aaron Jones goes down. He’ll be lost for several weeks with an MCL injury. Jamaal Williams did an admirable job in relief. However, he only averaged 3.3 per carry and had a long of seven yards. Remember the guy that was the No. 1 running back to start the season, Fat Mike? His name is Ty Montgomery. He ran for that 37-yard touchdown. He got six carries for 54 yards. Nine yard average. We’ve bitched about not handing him the ball more often last season. Nothing has changed, obviously. But why would it?
While We’re At It…
Hey, thanks to Mike Daniels for showing up for the first time since week 1. Five tackles, two for loss, including a sack. The Seahawks have a crappy line. The Bears have a crappy line. Rock and roll, brother!
The Bears Still Suck!
Do I need to say anymore?
