“Ready or not, here it comes. We’ll get going on Chicago on Monday. We were able to get some preliminary work done in training camp; that’s a benefit,” McCarthy said.

The Packers would seem to be set at the quarterback position for the present and the future, following strong summers by Scott Tolzien and Hundley. The latter began spring drills as a quarterback in need of grooming. He exits the preseason groomed.

“Brett Hundley is a heckuva football player,” said McCarthy, renowned for his work in developing quarterbacks. “I always enjoyed watching him on TV when he played at UCLA. He came here and wanted to do things right. He fully understood the opportunities in front of him. He’s picked it up quickly. The last two weeks have been huge for Brett.”

Hundley completed 16 of 23 passes for 246 yards, four touchdowns and a 142.4 passer rating. He completed the preseason having thrown seven touchdown passes against just one interception.

“I feel like I’ve put together a great preseason, and I’m just ready to keep working, keep learning. I still have a lot to learn. I’ve only been in the league for a couple of months, but I have a lot of faith and confidence in my ability,” Hundley said...

Wow, I guess that makes Hundley the preseason MVP!  Whoo hoo.

Goodell and a lot of NFL teams are still wrangling with Belichick and Brady.  Those two guys are plain and simply weasels.

I think that their will be a re-shuffling of the league standings for many teams.  It's a new season.

A re-shuffling of Biblical proportions?

I dunno.  Looks like it could be a crazy season.

9. John Fox won't fix Jay Cutler

Because no one can.

That is what John Fox will realize, and after this season, the Bears will cut Jay Cutler. They'll have had enough. Can't blame them.

Then, I wouldn't be shocked to see Cutler end up as a backup in New England or Philadelphia.

 

10. Tom Brady will retire

And we come full circle, back to the man at the center of the biggest story of the offseason.

Brady is 38 years old. If he wins a Super Bowl, he will have won a historic case against the NFL and captured his fifth championship. What else would there be for him to do? He is, to me, already the best quarterback ever. Another title would further cement that.

Even if Brady reaches the Super Bowl and loses to the Packers, he will have reached his seventh Super Bowl, which would be, well, pretty amazing in its own right.

Part of these calculations will be—here's that word again—Deflategate. The NFL's appeal will keep moseying through the system and could take months. Theoretically, it's possible the NFL wins after the season has already unfolded, and the four-game suspension would come next season.

That's what somewhat occurred in the infamous StarCaps case. That took years to resolve. I don't think Brady's case will take that long, but it certainly could last the season.

I think if Brady reaches another Super Bowl, he'll realize he's done everything, and he won't let the Deflategate court case hang over his head. Brady will want to control his own future, not allow the NFL to do it. He'll walk away as the best ever, and then the Jimmy Garoppolo era will begin.

Mike Freeman = Retard.

He doesn't even follow the crap he writes? 

#9 says the Bears will cut Jay at the end of the year and he ends up as a back up in NE or Phil?

#10 says Brady will retire at the end of the year and the Jimmy Garoppolo era will begin?

Unless he thinks that Cutler would be backing up Garoppolo....

I'm hoping the deflatgate chatter ends when the NFL season begins.

NFL needs to just drop it - they've instituted their financial and draft choice fines.  Move on.
