Cheese Curds, 11/20: Packers will stick with Hundley; more injuries take a heavy toll

New, comments

That’s not how Sunday was supposed to go.

For all of Brett Hundley’s flaws and mistakes since he took over as the Green Bay Packers’ starting quarterback, there’s really little else the team can do at that position right now.

Today is one of those awful day-afters. It’s so much easier to deal with a hangover when you know you had a great time the day and night before, but when everything goes wrong, it just makes it that much worse.

That must be how the Packers will feel when watching the tape of yesterday’s embarrassing shutout loss to the Baltimore Ravens, a team that entered the day under .500. Adding injury to insult were the three starters who left the game hurt, with second-year nose tackle Kenny Clark’s injury being the most significant.

Still, Hundley’s day wasn’t the worst of any NFL quarterback on Sunday, and the other one showed what can happen if you jut decide to make a change on a whim.

Read on for today’s curds, if you dare.
