GREEN BAY – Not long after the misery subsided, and Brett Hundley’s season from hell was over, the Green Bay Packers quarterback locked himself in the film room.

He could’ve burned that 2017 tape. There weren’t many positives to build on. By his own head coach’s admission, Hundley was caught unprepared for the opportunity when Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone.

Instead, Hundley said, ...

Aug 08, 2018 | by A. Sherrod Blakely, NBC Sports Boston

BOSTON -- There's no way you can look at the Boston Celtics and not be impressed with their depth.

We're not talking about a team with a solid starting five and some nice filler pieces.
