Brett Hundley made his first career start for the Packers against the Saints, and it did not go well. With about as good a non-Aaron Rodgers situation as Green Bay could have on Sunday – a strong running game, two interceptions, a blocked extra point, the Lambeau Field home environment – how troubling was it that Hundley, head coach Mike McCarthy and the defense still couldn't beat New Orleans?
Can the Packers stay afloat in the flawed NFC North division and hope Rodgers returns for a late-season playoff push? And how great have touchdown celebrations been lately?
OnMilwaukee sports editor Jimmy Carlton and pop culture editor Matt Mueller answer those questions and more, as Green Bay heads into its Week 8 bye.
Then, the guys discuss the exciting Bucks and their promising start to the NBA season. Is Giannis Antetokounmpo a genuine MVP candidate? Is Khris Middleton just in a slump? Have Malcolm Brogdon and Thon Maker made second-year jumps? Where does Milwaukee stand in the Eastern Conference?

Born in Milwaukee but a product of Shorewood High School (go ‘Hounds!) and Northwestern University (go ‘Cats!), Jimmy never knew the schoolboy bliss of cheering for a winning football, basketball or baseball team. So he ditched being a fan in order to cover sports professionally - occasionally objectively, always passionately. He's lived in Chicago, New York and Dallas, but now resides again in his beloved Brew City and is an ardent attacker of the notorious Milwaukee Inferiority Complex.
After interning at print publications like Birds and Blooms (official motto: "America's #1 backyard birding and gardening magazine!"), Sports Illustrated (unofficial motto: "Subscribe and save up to 90% off the cover price!") and The Dallas Morning News (a newspaper!), Jimmy worked for web outlets like CBSSports.com, where he was a Packers beat reporter, and FOX Sports Wisconsin, where he managed digital content. He's a proponent and frequent user of em dashes, parenthetical asides, descriptive appositives and, really, anything that makes his sentences longer and more needlessly complex.
Jimmy appreciates references to late '90s Brewers and Bucks players and is the curator of the unofficial John Jaha Hall of Fame. He also enjoys running, biking and soccer, but isn't too annoying about them. He writes about sports - both mainstream and unconventional - and non-sports, including history, music, food, art and even golf (just kidding!), and welcomes reader suggestions for off-the-beaten-path story ideas.
