Packers-Chiefs: First half thoughts
Aaron Rodgers did not play tonight so it was all Vince Young and B.J. Coleman in the first half. If this is a case of it's Young's job to lose then there's no doubt he'll be the #2 quarterback. Not that it was a lights-out first half for Young but Coleman didn't do anything to impress. The interception thrown by Coleman was a forced throw and a bad read.
Johnathan Franklin showed some flash early on that we hadn't seen earlier in the preseason. The learning curve has been steeper than anticipated so it was good to see him running with some authority.
The last wide receiver spot is going to be a tough one to determine but Jeremy Ross certainly made his case. He came up with two big time 3rd down receptions.
Another player on the bubble is linebacker Nate Palmer who had a sack/forced fumble that was wiped out by a penalty on Johnny Jolly.
Micah Hyde was back deep on punt returns while Alex Green handled kickoff returns.
How about that debut by Tramon Williams? After sitting out the entire preseason Williams picked off Chase Daniel on the first play and then called it a night.
The run defense held up much better than they did against Seattle last week. Encouraging sign though it's still too hard to determine how much better, if it all, the defense is compared to last year.
