Brett Hundley says he’s more confident, trying to quickly get up to speed with Seahawks

Brett Hundley took the practice field with the Seattle Seahawks for the first time on Monday since being traded by the Green Bay Packers last Wednesday. Hundley will be Seattle’s backup to Russell Wilson for Sunday’s season opener in Denver and will have all of four practices to digest a new playbook and get up to speed with the Seahawks.

“I told my wife she may not see me for a while because I’ll be studying.” Hundley said. “I’m going to give it all I got. I think I can learn a good amount by Sunday.”

Hundley started nine games for the Packers last season in place of an injured Aaron Rodgers. Green Bay won only three of those nine starts with Hundley throwing for 1,836 yards, nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions in those games.

Hundley said the experience has left him in a better place and he feels much more confident in his abilities should the occasion arise against with the Seahawks,

“This was the first offseason I was able to watch myself play instead of watching others,” Hundley said of evaluating his season.

“I learned just about everything I needed to. For a quarterback, that means so much because you can be a five-year vet, but if you haven’t had playing experience it’s completely different. So, for me last year to get that for once and to get a good amount of games under my belt. Even this preseason, I just felt more comfortable, confident, and I’m ready to roll.”

  1. That is about 200 yards per game and more interceptions than touchdowns. He has to learn new call signals and the playbook. If Russell Wilson has to leave the game, for whatever reason, it would be fun to watch.

  2. Good Luck Hundley, I was not a fan of yours in Green Bay. I have no idea what MM & TT were thinking. T. Hill in New Orleans should have been the back up. I see Gutie has less blinders on at this point. Nice Guy and all with Hundley but he is not a NFL Quarterback that will find success. Too many flaws in his resume. #12 Please stay healthy this year!!!!!

  3. I enjoy Wilson he is and will continue to be a great QB…. likely the best in his class..

    There is a differenxe between coming off the bench for Wilson vs. Rodgers.

    Unlike in Minnesota where if Theodore or Bradford get hurt the drop off wasnt as big.

  4. “Brett Hundley says he’s more confident…”

    Why wouldn’t he be. He now has competent coaching.

  5. I think that’s all he really needs. He has the physical tools and intelligence. I said that last year. He just didn’t seem to trust the receiver was going to be open, or trust he could get the ball to the receiver on most plays, so he was hesitant. Hope the change of scenery does him good.

    It is amazing what competent coaching can do

    The Vikings have had ten different quarterbacks in five years, none of them stuck. Now, they’ve resorted to wishing, hoping, and praying that Kirk “I Come With a Guarantee” Cousins can maybe be the the guy. Maybe.

    Do you mean coaching like that?

    The Vikings 2017 QBs are now, the starting QB for Denver, Arizona and the primary backup for New Orleans (acquired for a third round pick).

    The Packers traded Hundley for a 6th round pick, Callahan is currently unemployed and Rodgers forced the Packers to make him the highest paid player in the history of the NFL.

    I think Rodgers is what he is in spite of the coaching he received in Green Bay. The evidence is in the status of the two most recent “trainees” coached by the Packer coaching staff.

    The Viking coaching staff led Keenum to his best season ever, Bradford to his best game ever and Teddy to a contract 6 times higher than what Keenum signed fo last year to be a backup with the Vikings.

    I expect Cousins to benefit greatly with improved coaching and team makeup than he had in Washington.

  9. Hundley doesn’t have what it takes to be an NFL quarterback. Some guys have it and some guys dont. And if a guy doesn’t have it, he never will.

    Shurmur.

    You are long-winded. “Vikings good, Green Bay bad”. we all know.

  11. “Vikings good, Green Bay bad”.

    For the first time, you actually posted some “truth”…😎

  12. Sorry but Hundley has poor anticipation. He isn’t real accurate with the ball and he doesn’t have good feel in the pocket.

    That Seattle gave up a 6th rounder seems like highway robbery since GB was going to release him at cut down. No way were they going to cut Kizer and Boyle has looked like a real NFL QB in the pocket.

    Wish him luck because he seems like a good guy, but please stop with the gum chewing on the field!

  13. Pete Carroll or Brett Hundley?
    Who can chew gum faster…..Ok Brett I need you to bring your iPad and pack of Wrigley and your pouch of Big League Chew to my office, we need to work on our T.V. Timeout appearances.

    Why not? Hundley outplayed him.

    Oh yeah, Gutie traded Randall to get him so they have too much “invested” in him to cut him.
