Is QB Graham Harrell truly prepared to lead the Packers over multiple games?
When Matt Flynn left for a shot at the starting quarterback job with the Seattle Seahawks in the offseason, one question immediately rushed to the forefront for Green Bay Packers fans.
Is Graham Harrell ready?
The answer was hotly debated from the day Flynn signed with Seattle and through mini-camp and OTAs with no definitive answer. The Packers reportedly at least considered a trade for Cleveland Browns QB Colt McCoy during the NFL Draft, but apparently decided that Harrell deserved a clear shot at the backup job.
Now that training camp is underway, Harrell’s prospects as the Packers’ second string quarterback may finally be clearing up.

He was buried on the depth chart and never assumed a regular role in the offense as he finished with only 24/369/1 on only 30 targets. The good news is he had an exceptional...

The landscape of fantasy football is drastically changing.
Remember when there was a time it was a crime not to take a running back in the first round of your fantasy football draft? Oh how times have changed. With all the platoon running systems in the league and the amount of injuries we...

The Seahawks have been searching for a new quarterback. Last year, they decided to part ways with then quarterback, Matt Hasselbeck. Hasselbeck struggled to match his best year under Seattle, which was the year of their Super Bowl run.
In their search for a new QB, the Seahawks turned to Tarvaris Jackson. In my opinion, this was just a temporary replacement. In a full season...
