Mike McCarthy: Brett Hundley wasn’t ready, but I still believe in him
The Packers found themselves with Brett Hundley as their starting quarterback for much of the 2017 season due to Aaron Rodgers’ broken collarbone and the results were not particularly good for the 2015 fifth-round pick.
Not long ago, this type of investment was considered exorbitant for an interior offensive lineman, but times have changed.
There isn’t a quarterback alive who’s gonna get in the huddle and say, ‘OK boys, let ’em up the middle and I’ll deal with it,’ Gettleman said. You need to be firm in the middle. At the end of the day, it’s keeping your quarterback upright and out of the hospital.
I mean, there’s a bunch of guards now that are getting paid, and when you think about it, they’re closer to the quarterback. Listen, it’s the market. Is that car worth $150,000? If someone buys it, I guess it’s worth it, you know what I mean?
It’s measurement day for the quarterbacks at the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and the results for one of the top signal callers were different than they were at the Senior Bowl in January.
Well, I think that it’s going to be a whole group effort, Solder said. I don’t think one particular player is going to change the whole thing, so with everyone that is already there that I know and anyone that is coming in, we’re just going to have to work as hard as we can. It’s going to be an uphill process and that’s not saying anything about the past, it’s just that the NFL is a difficult, difficult league and we’re going to have to be the best that we can be to perform at a high level.
I’m going to be the best I can to do what I can — lead by example and it’s a group effort. Like I said, it’s not going to be one player, so I don’t have the mentality that I’m going to come in and make this huge impact, change the culture and all this kind of stuff. I’m just coming in to play football and be myself and do what I can.
