Brett Hundley taking the third set of quarterback snaps ahead of Matt Blanchardwas an interesting choice, but it's a sign both that he has indeed been improving lately and that Blanchard still doesn't really have a serious shot at making the team. He seemed to play very well too, making some nice throws into tight windows and later adding a touchdown pass to John Crockett. All told, he seemed confident and effective, a very good sign after struggling during his first week of training camp.
