There aren’t many words that sum up the Green Bay Packers’ defeat at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings, but calamity is one that works.
Not only did the Packers lose a game to a despised division rival, but they also lost their quarterback. You already knew that, though.
We’re going to break down the game itself. We’ll take a look at the hit that leveled Aaron Rodgers and what impact that has had on the Packers’ season.
This is a year that has been dominated by injuries for the Packers. The offensive line is chief among the areas that have been decimated. Unfortunately, that will be the area that will either help or hinder Brett Hundley going forward.
The Packers’ offensive line and their secondary will be the two key areas that will help determine Hundley’s success. Do we think Hundley can lead the Pack?
He has millions of reasons to do so. And yes, with the proper support, we are intrigued about the prospects of the Brett Hundley era.
The New Orleans Saints might be tough in the coming week, but the season isn’t over for the Packers. We’ll tell you why.
I believe you guys are wrong about the Barr hit not being illegal because Rodgers was out of the pocket. Please see attached NFL commentary and video describing and showing legal and illegal hits outside the pocket. Go to about the 2:15 mark to about the 3:15 mark of the video. It was not illegal for the hit after Newton threw the ball. It was illegal to take Newton to the ground with force. The player hitting Newton was closer to Newton than Barr was to Rodgers.
