Preseason Week 3: What We Didn't See
For instance, we didn’t see Aaron Rodgers beyond the first offensive series, despite this being the supposedly all important “dress rehearsal” third preseason game. It flies in the face of what’s considered conventional wisdom, but Coach McCarthy and Company clearly wanted a better look at Graham Harrell with the offensive starters and a longer look at his other back-up quarterbacks.
We didn’t see James Starks at all until there was just 1:53 on the clock in the fourth quarter. He never carried the ball, and you’d be hard pressed to think of a reason why he shouldn’t be worried about the security of his roster spot.
