Hundley did in 6 games what Rodgers took 10 years to do [Win in OT].
How many of those Overtime games did Aaron Rodgers get the ball first? Sit down.
NO, you sit down
Prior to this year, in 3 OT games [Record: 0-3] Rodgers had 4 drive opportunities and his 2 Turnovers [the AZ fumble and an INT on 2nd and 5 deep in GB territory] led directly to loses. Those drives are as follows:
3 and out -3 net yards-Drive ended: Fumble. Rodgers: 1-2-14, 1 Sack -7, 1 Fumb, 0 Rush yards.
3 and out, -10 net yards-Drive ended: Punt. Rodgers: 0-1-0, 1 Sack -8, 0 Rush yards
2 and out, 5 net yards-Drive ended: INT. Rodgers: 0-1, INT, 0 Rush yards
3 and out, -1 net yards-Drive ended: Punt. Rodgers: 0-1-0, 1 Sack -5, 0 Rush yards
4 drives: 0 first downs, 0 points, 3 Losses; 11 plays, -9 net yards, 1 INT, 1 Fumble, 3 sacks for -20, 1-5-14, 0 yards rushing.
Hundley in 1 drive: 4 1st downs, 1 TD, 1 Win. 8 plays 72 yards [not a single negative play]. 0 Sacks, 0 INTs, 0 Fumbles. 1-2-12 and 25 yards rushing.
The sample size is small; but because the results are so stark they are significant. There is [hopefully was] something very wrong with Rodgers at crunch time and as I’ve said before the only difference between GB and NE over the last 10 years is their respective QB play at crunch time. Interestingly, unlike Rodgers whose play degrades in crunch time; Hundley’s play seems to elevate considering his 4th Q and OT of Chicago, Pitt and TB games.
This is not an insignificant quality to evaluate when judging a QB’s upside.
