From that article I gathered some information about his 6 year drought. A big thing I noticed was that Hoyer's losses were almost all tight games. Eight of the eleven losses were by 6 points or less (6,1,3,2,3,3,3, and 4). In one of the games where his team lost by 16 (with the Bears at Lambeau) he left the game with a broken arm losing 3-0. The other two games were a 20 point loss to the Panthers and the previously mentioned 16 point loss to the Chiefs. In the loss to the Panthers, Hoyer had two turnovers which gave the Panthers a short field. Both times the Carolina squad made their way into the endzone.
HOYER PRE-SEASON- Hoyer played in all three pre-season games. For the most part he made the most of those opportunities as he connected on 13 of 18 pass attempts and threw one touchdown. Unfortunately, most of the guys he connected with during the summer are either injured or no longer with the team. Had JJ Taylor not been hurt, it would have been a great time to put him on the 53 man roster.
HOW THE TEAMS STACK UP- Three games into the season, the teams are about as dead-even as could be possible in almost every category except for turnovers and punting. The Patriots have 8 turnovers while the Packers have 5. When it comes to punting and punt coverage the Patriots are currently worst in the league. Last week's 43 yard punt return by Devin Duvernay is a big reason why they are currently in the dumpster. Did the refs hold their whistles and miss a call or two on that return, most likely.
GREEN BAY OFFENSE- Green Bay's offense has only score 6 touchdowns and is averaging 16 points per game. Future hall of fame quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.has a QBR of 49.3 with 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. He's been spreading the ball around to whoever has been available. While it's still early in the season, Rodgers has 64% of his yards coming from after the catch. That's about 10% higher than usual for him. Rodgers has yet to benefit from a pass interference or roughing the passer call this season. Hopefully that continues today.
