Packers Question of the Day: Expectations for Sunday

Packers Question of the Day: Expectations for Sunday

Sunday marks the first time the Packers have faced off against the New Orleans Saints since 2014 and the first time hosting them at Lambeau Field since 2012. Only this time, it won't be Aaron Rodgers leading the green and gold.

As Brett Hundley prepares to make his first career start, what are your expectations from the Packers as a whole as they currently sit tied atop the NFC North?

If the defense can actually play game changing football for once, the Packers win this game. If they let Brees have a field day and ring up even 31 points, we'll lose. It's not all about Hundley, the Packers need to win as a team from here out. We need to run the football successfully, and play excellent defense. Also, FG kicking execution will be terrifically important, can't have crappy snaps and any missed attempts.

If we can keep something resembling a starting O-line on the field, I think they win this game with only moderate drama. BH will probably throw an INT or 2, and there's obviously going to be fewer of the "making something out of nothing" plays we've come to expect. This means that execution is everything, because what's called is what's being run. AR can redesign the offense on the fly. No one can expect BH to do that.

Who knows? Lousy weather for Sunday afternoon. Play hard, let the chips fall.

I'm hoping we see a game plan for Hundley that makes him look the way Flynn looked against NE that got him his big payday in Seattle. At least if Brett Hundley looks like a stud we can trade him for a draft pick. What we got from Flynn was a dent in Seattle's cap. I'm excited to see MM gameplan instead of looking like we're just going through the motions. Should be a fun game to watch.

Actually Flynn got his bug payday from Seattle after his 6 TD game against the Lions in the last game of the Packers 15-1 2011 season. The NE game was during the 2010 season and was Flynn's first NFL start. Thanks, Since '61

Unfortunately I don't see our current defense as assembled being able to stop a red hot New Orleans offense. Expecting that Hundley and mish mash O line could keep up in a likely track meet is asking a bit much for his first start.

New Orleans- 36....Packers 20. Hope I'm wrong.

Keep it close

I expect that anything can happen, especially since we still don't know who is playing OL or CB for the Packers this week. Thanks, Since '61

This may be a blessing in disguise, we no longer have AR to bail this team out. Everyone from the players on down to the coaches have to suck it up. It has to become a complete team now, not Aaron Rodgers team. I predict they will play hard and keep it close, a win if they get a couple of key turnovers.

Is it any coincidence that the Packers played some of their best football in 2014, the year after ARod's last collarbone cost him the last half of the season?
