Hundley's stat line in 2017 wasn't pretty. On 316 total attempts, he completed 60 percent of his passes for 1836 yards, 9 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Analytically, he averaged 5.8 yards per attempt and a 70.6 quarterback rating.
He is the only Packers quarterback to ever go five straight starts without throwing a touchdown pass in Lambeau.
Hundley also quarterbacked two games the Packers were shut out in. As a franchise since 1940, the Packers have only been shut out 25 times. That means Hundley has quarterbacked 8 percent of all Packer shutouts.
He is the only Packer quarterback in history to throw every pass of a game and be shut out twice in Lambeau during the course of a single season.
The only other packer quarterback in history to throw every single pass of a game and be shut out twice in the same season is Don Majkowski in 1988.
The Packers finished 4-12 in 1988, tied for the 13th worst record in franchise history. In 2017, they finished 7-9 and were squarely in the playoff hunt.
“I believe in Brett Hundley,” McCarthy said. “I do fully recognize that he has a lot of football in front of him. He has a big upside. Our structure and our coaching staff, we need to make sure we maximize that, but we also need to learn from the other parts of the offense that we didn’t do as good as we would have liked, and we’ll learn from that platform. I do believe Brett has a big upside, and looking forward to getting back to work with him.”
