Two years ago, Green Bay rookie quarterback Brett Hundley posted big numbers during the preseason (630 yards, 7 TDs, 1 INT). Last season, he barely played due to a bum ankle. Hundley is
and slated to start Green Bay's preseason opener on Thursday vs. Philadelphia. Without Hundley, the Packers went under the total in all four preseason games last year. In two preseason games in 2015 in which Hundley took a majority of the snaps, Green Bay scored 26 and 38 points which both games flying over the total.
Asked what he’s looking for from Hundley, Van Pelt said, “Operating within the system, making the checks that he needs to make, any protection adjustments that need to be made. And then after that, just the rhythm of the feet and staying in his time clock and working progressions. I think he’s done a really good job of that. This last week we’re really proud of the way he’s practiced.
“I think he’s taken a big step starting last week in the night practices. I’ve seen some urgency. He’s playing fast right now, he’s playing with confidence. I’m excited to see it roll over to the preseason.”
