Zolak & Bertrand

Hey, it’s Scott Zolak and I’m all set for a big trip to Lambeau Field for Patriots vs Packers. Lambeau is one of the most historic stadium settings in the National Football League. I’d probably rank it the best that I’ve seen. Here are my 3 thoughts on the game….

  • Can Brian Hoyer Step Up?

    We were hoping for Mac Jones versus Aaron Rodgers, but the way this week has shaken I assume Mac will be out Sunday. This means Brian Hoyer takes over.

    Let’s look back to Hoyer’s last start, against the Kansas City Chiefs in 2020. Cam Newton had Covid, so Hoyer was sort of thrust into the starting position on what was a weird week. There were no fans in the stands and the game was actually moved from to Monday so sort of an awkward setting. The team traveled to Kansas City on the day of the game. Hoyer actually played well until he made two major mistakes at the end of the first half….

  • Contain Packers’ Edge Rushers

    Green Bay’s defense really gets after the passer. They have a really good edge rusher in Rashan Gary. That’s why they play a ton of cover two, it’s the old school Tampa cover two and they loved the punch the ball last week against the Buccaneers. They punched three balls out on Brady and company.

  • Win Turnover Battle

    I think you go out, manage the game and and not ask Brian Hoyer to be something different than what he has always been. Just protect the ball, be the 14 veteran that you are, manage the game, play good defense, don’t turn the ball over and have the defense start to turn the ball over. The Patriots are one of the best teams in the NFL when they win the plus minus.
