The spring event Paul and they guard really gold analysts. Then of all I I I'll start off was saying what did you take away from last night. Well negatives you know missed tackles. From the east and and then the thing that you really never want to have happen. In any game much less the quote unquote meeting with an injury. There were you know 23 too many of those. That you and you know not talking about a Jordan health and injury year budget type mud and up and on the opposite side. I had a couple good development certain players that I drove in the more specific I shipments on the negative. But I Montgomery fumble that. In early in certain Kerry at this team struggle starting running back and it that way up positive potential in a morbid but. At some of that up that credit where and jumped off that you know it. Aaron Rodgers play and Jordan out well. But in. The upper Hundley look good I don't want to look great you looked a little bit bomb. Belt optimal million books. And book form that you're in the air but he into the union truck. And on our speed they didn't look complicate here because there are some guy. The multiple must tackle them it's only concern because the guy just don't do things. So let's start off with when you talk about the making of let's start with the negative okay we saw. You know few mental mistakes obviously to run the ball a lot we didn't see anything prolific out of the run game. You know you saw a few blocking errors here and there is brakes did not look good when they move him around. You know I knew if I can point to a few things that I could say okay this was not rate. Blight you know that those were kind of the negatives from me obviously the injuries are part of that waited those were kind of the negatives from me what were the specific negatives for you that you could say okay. This needs to be cleaned up over got to make the team they need you better. Bo Cantrell right at three missed tackle by my count so it's like god what a pretty darn good rookies and part undrafted player for any player. It got to come in and and I thought that was concerning for him I'm John although head of first punt that. Well it certainly that in practice in it up for that later I think that's something to look at the Montgomery fumble I mean they've got eight. As if he wanted to switch to running back so. You have been don't have a a running back right ballot I Montgomery that its first impression. We're not I mean it was a bad first depression for Ty Montgomery. At running back. It would initial bad impression for Diop and vocal but an improvement there. I think it's tackle been a concern so it is at the cleanup at the first pre season game is. A lot of work some players that are inexperienced. But any if I'm hoping to jump up the paper and be able to the immediate thing that Kevin can add it up and down oddly at mentioned had his ups and and it down. Out you know you helping you you don't want you don't expect ever leave that for outburst preceding game. And say well everything was clean and there was there's not a rush it but nobody next pretty pretty even game of course you expecting to. To go wrong especially when you're playing guy to. It is new or or they're converting position like Montgomery. A lot of things you do to improve upon idol. That negative auditing or negative but it I didn't walk quit anything that would. The concerns are being overly high because it ended the first pre game and and the guy being pressed into. Responsibilities that are either bigger than what they've been used to or now of course the pro level probably rookie. So Paula I wanna go back to what you're talking about with Brett Huntley and in the quarterback position. Started out on fire get a 150 quarterback rating at one point late in the efforts after that ball game. Throws the pick. Really didn't look good after that I'm not saying that he relative because he only threw maybe a pass or two after that but it was an ill advised pass let's be honest is that the time wound down in the first half. So a Brett homily this the first time he's really had any significant snaps and playing time. Since he went down on the injury prior to the pre season last year. I expected him to have rushed I didn't expect him to come out and set the world on fire did you. Well I didn't and I and again that's the guy who two years ago it was a rookie even. Was just incredible and I think if the bats passer rating. In the NFL in the preakness and of course but it just a guy after at least they increase because what it really need and but he didn't get to build up that last week it because of his injury. Become and it is one element what the question that we talk about as early Hundley more than anything of course we expect Aaron Rodgers to play and to be healthy and. And Hundley and not have to play at a regular you can get him back because Hundley was mostly to wrap it. A big guy who you thought you could basically been out there right you bottom out you put in an upgrade and it let it at the packer or try to do with Brett Hundley they thought okay. He's available at mount Igman the Packers traded up you know you can extend it to get ugly in the et. And in the draft two years ago. Without you know YouTube hope that he can improve and knew what he did as a rookie and pretty unique and while that might be an apt that that we can flip for Burke the second topic and a couple years. They got to get to build off of that last year and I thought last night had more up and downs but. You know if you're seeing that all the I'm okay to the Dolphins lose chemical an eagle after Jay Cutler. The next he is elusive their quarterback is more than likely that'll happen in the next month before the regular seat and start another team will lose it's starting quarterback. Brett Hundley did something last night. That would make you say if you're in the just law starting quarterbacks say two weeks from now you're gonna get a second round pick in next year's draft ugly. That kinda performed. You know it and it wasn't like that yet this guy too confident start for my team because my team's starting QB just got hurt. On August 20 I don't think it would that at orbit but also did show development which showed progress. Did you not let them for first or second round pick at the progress but. You know big step by the progress that have to build up really been to hear about the guy play. Well what else do you see positive rather then obviously Trevor Davis who has been sending videos of him catching punts and kicks to Ron took. Other than Trevor Davis what else did you see that was really positive I really I gotta tell you I'll say I like we're Trevor Davis brought to the table I liked. We're king brought to the table yes he made a couple of mistakes but I love the fact is willing to stick his head in there. He's willing to give somebody a pop he loves to hit I mean and I loved out of its defensive back. Yeah and I know you that other than every day with but it I could repeat that in the Trevor David punt return and the development that he would need in that. That lead appeared in it it's incredible it would occur like we're at OK let's look at on his side it. I Montgomery spent the past year try to convert to running back. Its first impression this you're the bedlam with the fumble right. Trevor Davis has spent his entire off even not just working out at the punt returner but the thing that's failed to rock and look and think it likely didn't reckon it'll. Against Randall Cobb here it's not like it did you know Trevor Davis vs undrafted rookie acts. He tried to tell Randall Cobb for a punt return job and for him to have his first impression it other than that it wide. It's it's really a remarkable turn of event and I think you know not that it's like like he's done it now it is early in the starting punt return job or anything like that but. How do you have a better for depression and that you get cat it was it was that type of play with that type of eye opening moment I think. Trevor Davis at eight punt returner I'm. I like the Kevin king of like bit like that later in the game after he had made the mistake on the big pat. Which you know it looked around but there it was supposed to be they'd need help we don't know not. At a question for coaching staff but. He did come back in the heat and the elated that got somebody in earth but it missed tackles and as many type of Eric like that is there were last night. It is good to see him do that and I we know let me get. Into the first pre season game for a rookie who missed a lot of mini camp because of the NFL rules that relate to guys who are still a part of their semesters in college. You're going to make mistakes. Well what you wanna if you look at the positive flashes too and we absolutely all that. In in the in the preceding debut at least have kept up with a bulk of those guys are sure. So the other aspect this year when we talk about scoring is Mason Crosby we saw Mason Crosby line drive one that could have been good from 75 yards in through the up rights and into the net I thought it was a little bit low. But all in all righty instead of going for two in trying a few things seem like Mike McCarthy wanted to make sure that that snapped. The place in the kick all were pretty good it looked like it got a little bit of a room. Yet it not like you're gonna have a thing like you know what went in the belly night we could go. That situation we could that there are you could pound out and field goal attempt in a row. Because of the tent either build momentum or have a chance to build a negative streak and of course what happened with a negative streak. You do have a banquet like okay well what is one what do two picks you're human again. The positive development but it it's not a good I think that you can. Do what you did that night and it emanates religion and I've they would later be back in Lambeau Field playing pre season game and say well everything's been picked. Be a process it'll be a gradual improvement. And and it you know badly that the positive but did he ought at all the elder are cured they'll write it it's it's going to take on the and that but. You'd get it it's OK to take big steps and and the preakness and it's okay. Have they not be perfect out of the gate like you want it on every night for the field goal operation unit with Crosby vocal at heart. Okay you know it and now at this point and you make enough improvement quickly enough. That way Seattle get and that out of your month from now that you don't still have those things to work out or that you don't have to call upon a Brett do or somebody else to comment or get holder command. That's the goal you know that one month from now. You did it but it baby steps along the way that you're making improvements here and there. How much you think Aaron Rodgers plays in the upcoming game. It you want to look at recent history. Very little period. Maybe not making it wait until the third pre game. It I think that's what it is I think we are there and it stayed apparently his career were you go back and you look at his last. Six pre season you know since the Packers won the Super Bowl eight become flat and last and last and last every year. My expectation at this point abilities at the preceded here at some point he played our game and and one. And in that one game he played a drive or two at that first drive of the ten play beer. That's probably get you know and at it that that first series of rocket on the field it is you know three and out yeah I'd probably come back in for one orbit. Illiterates. Resting the armor you know monitoring his reps as Mike but aren't you would call it. That's where we are that's where at that stage of Roger's career that. The you don't get the working at it in last year's slow start for Rutgers a result. I'm not getting a preview don't work or what happens it and you know these are all things that can be debated cognition or to or elation and all that good stuff but. I don't I mean again I am less bumping. Drastically changes in the second third preceding game. It probably wouldn't it be a draw or two in total rocketed a QB. Bobbitt's double chat again next week enjoy the weekend ballad like as soon. They build real quick in eight weeks. Are we are we talking about it you'll LE vs the Packers have been suspension gets reduced or. Is that game is totally changed in week five and had no way we're looking at but boy that that week I'd independent rapid turn of event in the. Well I'll tell you this were you shocked at the lankans and be productive yesterday and Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended by the national football league for six games. And he's got a chance to deal might I agree I were you shocked by the length of the suspension for the gut Dallas Cowboys running back. Yeah I had I'd literally just stop and one minute ago the Adams after posted a tweet and Pete latter. At the NFL into the Elliott to explain why the league suspended him six in that literally just got posted a minute ago I haven't read it. I wanna died and more when I have a chance but. Yeah Ed course Glen big game. And you know it turned like him value into the eighties he could be all already called the best running back in the league. But I think it the pop on one hand because you idea but finally. If you're about them up and they're not going to they're not gonna let the fact that to the star player an electric punishment. They get on appeal if it's reduced down or I think you get produced at all it would it would go from 64 and get that done. At that from playing from playing against the Packers not playing at the Packers though yet the initial sticker shock of it was well they. And the court that importantly build them. Anyone can being treated her belt for a slow news writing. Yeah no doubt about it good stuff followed Chad again soon and I do think that even if he doesn't get suspended for the Packers game. Oh Lee coming back for a couple of weeks prior to that may change the dynamic of how he's used and how much rust he has. When he does come back in play and that ball in pocket supple Jackson. Yep Aldo document are about to hit the us quality or ringgold analyst when it's for a couple of minutes.
