Sam's Grading The Pack Week 7: I Miss The Old Brett

Sam's Grading The Pack Week 7: I Miss The Old Brett

At this stage of their careers, the 24-year-old Hundley is more physically gifted than the 38-year-old Brees. ESPN reported earlier Sunday that Rodgers, after undergoing surgery, might be able to resume throwing in six weeks, leaving open the possibility that he could play again late in the season.

Given the veteran nature of the Packers' offensive line, it wouldn't be that hard to emphasize a quick-hitting ground game that features quicker backs such as Jones and perhaps fellow rookie Devante Mays. His three rushes for 44 Yards and a touchdown was the only thing keeping him from an even worse grade this week. Should Brett Hundley be the starting quarterback moving forward? His longest completion went for only 14 yards.

STARR'S FINAL VISIT?: Legendary Packers quarterback Bart Starr made what his wife believes will be his final return trip to Green Bay, appearing at Sunday's game to help commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1967 National Football League championship team, and to donate a variety of personal memorabilia to the Packers Hall of Fame.

"That was the one lure that (family and Starr's trainer) would hold out every day, say 'We've got to get you to that rehab session because the fans want you there, the organization wants you there", son Bart Starr Jr. said. But I feel the same way today as I did going into the week. Green Bay had just 23:04 of possession time compared to the Saints 36:56. But the game against division rival Detroit - at Lambeau - strikes me as a must win.

Willie Snead, who was expected to be the Saints' No. 2 wide receiver option this year, has only one catch on the entire season because of a three-game suspension and a hamstring injury. The Packers featured a couple interceptions and an explosive running game, but it wasn't enough with a liability like Brett Hundley at quarterback.

The Packers, meanwhile, can't lean on either phase to get through Hundley's growing pains. He put the Saints on the scoreboard in the second quarter and set up the clinching touchdown in the fourth quarter with a 22-yard run. To kick-off the next drive, he carried twice for nine yards.

"I plan on going home and seeing my brother play", Packers running back Aaron Jones said. "You'll get the safeties and corners biting up on the run when they see the action". If Jones continues at this pace, he'll soon join them in the top tier. Jordy Nelson, one of the elite wideouts in the game, finished with just one catch for 13 yards. It's not Hundley's fault, it just comes with the territory.

Losing to the Saints and getting pummeled by Drew Brees is not cause for hopelessness. As the Saints sat back in their deep zones, there was little hope for a young quarterback. The secondary is eating. The Packers never recovered and head into their bye at 4-3 and with a lot to consider about their run game. Before Rodgers' injury at Minnesota on October 14, none of his three top wideouts - Nelson (19 receptions, 230 yards, six touchdowns), Adams (23-285-4) or Cobb (23-218-1) - was on pace for a 1,000-yard season as Rodgers spread the ball around, but at least they were all involved. If the Packers defense can't take care of the rest, the Packers are in trouble.

Jones had 97 yards on 10 carries and three catches for 7 yards at the end of a first half in which the Packers led, 14-7.

"I'm really happy to be here", Starr said softly on Monday, with his wife, Cherry nearby.

Hundley did well to hang in a collapsing pocket. "It's a challenge I didn't meet today... he didn't get comfortable in the pocket... that's my responsibility so, did a poor job coaching".
