He has no pocket awareness. Twice tonight he was hit and didn’t know it was coming. One was a fumble that the Packers recovered, second turned into a INT.
He made some good throws, but I still think he’s not good enough to win games for us.

Still throwing behind guys.

Nike made statements earlier that the starter was to be determined. Seems like they're trying to send a message to Kizer.

Hundley's good throwing surprised me (a little bit behind people, but in the area where a slight adjustment worked)... but then I remember he struggles more after being hit... and he struggled some after the first hit... he adjusted back but it took a little while. Then after the second hit, Kizer came in, so I don't know how he would of rebounded there.

But I got a feeling if Hundley's problem of struggling after getting hit might still be there and so he would need a great pass blocking OL and rely on the running game still, so defenses can't focus on him.

Kizer’s looked ok, imo. Not to jinx him.

Calling it now... If the Packers keep three QBs, they're keeping Boyle over Hundley.

Based on what I saw last night, I would favor Boyle over Hundley.

I was really impressed with Hundley until he seemed to be completely unaware of what was going on to his side and behind him. Some good and okay throws aren't going to win games if you can't feel pressure coming and you cough it up.

Yup. That’s exactly what I am saying. The NFL has pass rushers that would be licking their chops at a shot at Hundley. If you can’t sense the pressure around you, you are a dead duck.

I didn't see or follow the game in any manner and yet I came to the same conclusion weeks ago.

Neither QB completely set themselves apart. They all have things that need to be worked on. The pocket awareness is an issue, but I do think he was the most overall consistent QB of the 3, by just a bit. Boyle was not playing against the same level of talent but he made some plays, for sure. Now let's see whose stock rises and falls over the next few weeks.

With Hundley, the thing I see as the biggest problems, is that he can't balance looking down the field and pocket awareness, and as soon as he gets hit... he's all about pocket awareness and can't throw the ball.

Before getting hit, Hundley was doing very well, the only problems were that he was throwing behind the receivers so that had to stop and wait on it some to get there but that's not uncommon in a back-up QB and that he had no pocket awareness.

But after the hits, he was being aware of the rushers and kept throwing 10 feet over receivers.

The major problem, is that his first problem (no pocket awareness), leads him to getting hit and focusing on pocket awareness, which leads him to the second problem (not being able to throw a catchable ball for a number of passes afterwards) and the cycle just keeps repeating, because once he can regain focus on down the field, he's lost all pocket awareness again.

All true. Kizer wasn't great though and Boyle made a couple decisions that show his inexperience. The high throws from Hundley were the things that stuck the most to me as far as the bad goes. 3 weeks to sort this out.

I really like the potential that Boyle showed, it reminded me of Kurt Warner, but I don't think Boyle is ready yet to be the #2 QB (and remember he's going against 3rd stringers at best and maybe not going to make the rosters). But I think Packers.com's Mike Spofford said it best


Kurt Warner played in Mike Martz system which was largely based on deep 7 step drops and deep WR routes, which gives pass rushers more times to get to the QB, which is why Martz's QBs were often injured or struggled or Interception prone. Kurt Warner would stand tall, knowing he was gonna get nailed and throw very good passes. Boyle did that at least twice, where there was fairly clearly a blitz coming up the middle with no blockers left and he stood there and delivered a very good deep pass.

Hundley nor Kizer have shown us that yet. Kizer clearly sees it and runs... IF Hundley sees it... he either runs or throws up a lame duck pass that's going no where.

It's very weird, as far as back-up QBs throwing goes, our current #2 (Hundley) is the most ready to play now, but might have the lowest ceiling of all of the QBs, and our #4 QB (Boyle) might be the least ready now but might have the highest ceiling. Though I think Kizer has great awareness and running ability which help a lot at QB and I think they're still adjusting Kizer's feet or throwing motion or something, because he didn't look as good as he did last year. Or maybe still adjusting to the system.

Edit: Just saw this, which confirms that they're adjusting Kizer's footwork

But it's an interesting question... do you go with most ready now? Or the highest ceiling? Mix of the two?

Yes!!! That's been the struggle. I mean my gosh... how many times has a coach had at least 3 guys and said DAMN if I could just put their strengths together into one player!

Ready now / lower ceiling: Hundley
Still needs a year of development / higher ceiling: Kizer
Highest ceiling / lowest experience: Boyle

Highest ceiling. GB has their starting QB so they don't need the most ready QB as their backup.

If Aaron goes down for the season with a QB who is the most ready to play it's a lost season as we saw last year.
If Aaron goes down for the season without a QB who is ready to play it's still a lost season but you have a QB who is moving closer to his full potential.

I'm not sure about highest ceiling. As the first preseason game I would agree with Boyle, but Kizer might have an even higher ceiling when he's got his footwork down and has fully adjusted to it. Mike McCarthy said they're adjusting Kizer's footwork and it was completely different than what they teach, which is probably why Kizer looked a lot better last year then he did in the 1st preseason game... IF Kizer can adjust, his ceiling is pretty dang high too.

Great Point. So I'll probably be choosing Kizer and Boyle in a mock roster.

Mike's system works the drop backs and the footwork into the passing game, relative to the play call. It incorporates a ton of fundamentals, uniquely combined in this system. That's gonna take a year for Kizer to really get down. This is the reason Hundley might still make the team, although he clearly seems to have a lower ceiling.

I think Hundley has the skills, he just can't get into the zone. He's still out there thinking too much, just the way Mike taught him.

Well I thought you made a great point... based on what Mike McCarthy said, I think he disagrees with you and is looking for the highest floor as his #2 back-up. Which basically he's saying Kizer and Boyle have a long way to go with their footwork if they want to make it. So I guess (sadly) we're going to be keeping Hundley as the #2 QB.

Maybe like Mike Holmgren went for highest floor cutting a certain future hall of fame QB that wore #12 before Rodgers.

No surprise.
1 HCs have a long history of saying one thing and doing the opposite.
2 It's his job that's on the line. If it were mine perhaps I would look at the short run too. Aaron goes down I might want the person who has the best chance to win today.
3 There is more than one reason I am not a HC anywhere.

Mucky Tundra (9h) : Or are you talking about Jermaine Gresham? He's 30 years old atm
Mucky Tundra (10h) : Tyler Eifert would be his name and he suffered a REALLY bad injury this year
gbguy20 (12h) : yeah why not bring in another guy who can't stay on the field?
Zero2Cool (13h) : The guy from the Bengals? The TE who's alway hurt??
KRK (15h) : Yup..he's gone...they should sign the guy from Bengals at half the cost
gbguy20 (16h) : correct
TheKanataThrilla (16h) : Hasn't really opened the middle of the field either. He is basically another WR and if one uses those stats he has had a terrible season for the price paid.
Cheesey (16h) : The busted thumb didn’t help. I’d have him back only at a reduced rate. But I’m sure he wouldn’t go for that.
Cheesey (16h) : Graham hasn’t been “great” this year, only fair.
Zero2Cool (19h) : Graham is far better than 85. When both thumbs are not broken. Who ever said Rouse was better than Collins?? Never heard it.
gbguy20 (15-Dec) : no one said tonyan is better than graham but it sure seems the general consensus is beginning to lean toward cutting graham rather than paying him another 10 million
beast (15-Dec) : I like Tonyan, but this nonsense (that's growing though out Packers fans) that Tonyan is better than Graham is just like the nonsense about Aaron Rouse being better than Nick Collins in 2007...
beast (15-Dec) : Tonyan got down field once when the OL COMPLETELY OWNED the DL on one play and Rodgers and ALL DAY to hold the ball!
Zero2Cool (15-Dec) : is Tonyan faster? I'd be good cutting Graham and using Tonyan more. I've seen him stretch the field. Graham with busted thumb = terrible
gbguy20 (15-Dec) : can't say there would be much difference, aside from tonyan being way faster
nerdmann (15-Dec) : You gonna go with Tonyan?
gbguy20 (15-Dec) : the dude needs to go after this year
nerdmann (15-Dec) : Bring him back until you develop a guy. That takes a year or two.
nerdmann (15-Dec) : I look at Graham as Chmura, without the blocking.
nerdmann (15-Dec) : Dude was on pace for the all time production record for TEs, broke his damn thumb.
nerdmann (15-Dec) : 46 receptions isn't bad.
packerfanoutwest (15-Dec) : many free agents don't want to play in GB,,,and you know why. Graham played for the money
Nonstopdrivel (14-Dec) : Graham has 46 receptions on 77 targets.
Zero2Cool (14-Dec) : Graham should sit until his broken thumb is better.
