The Packers had no hope with Brett Hundley at quarterback in their first two games with Aaron Rodgers hurt. Luckily for them, they had a bye right after those two losses to regroup.
Green Bay is 4-3 going into Monday night’s matchup against the Lions at Lambeau Field, but it feels like the Packers’ season is already on the line with a must-win division game at home. But the Packers won’t be able to win many more games and stay in the playoff hunt unless Hundley is more effective and efficient while Rodgers is out.
Had that been Cardinals starter Carson Palmer or most other above-average QBs, the Seahawks would have had to sweat much more. Things became a whole lot easier once Russell Wilson pulled off a magic trick to help build an insurmountable lead.
Roseman, meanwhile, has gone from that hot seat to the catbird seat. He is my choice for midseason NFL Executive of the Year.
Trading up and drafting Wentz is the most visible move Roseman has made, but as with any winning GM, he has made many other key decisions to turn around the Eagles’ fortunes.
“When I was younger, we saw Nike, Adidas, Under Armour and when Reebok had a basketball side,” Fox said. “For those brands to be coming at me and talking to me about what they were going to do in terms of commercials, it was just a blessing. I grew up wearing all of their shoes and paying for them, and at the end of the day, they wanted to pay me to wear their shoes.”
The Miami Dolphins waived Rey Maualuga on Saturday after the veteran linebacker was arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge earlier in the morning.
The team announced the move without comment on the legal situation.
Police and court records show Maualuga was arrested after an early-morning incident at a downtown Miami nightclub, allegedly involving a dispute over a bar bill. It was unclear if Maualuga had retained an attorney.
