Coleman TD pass caps Packers 19-7 win

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 17, 2013 – 10:18 pm

Packers QB Aaron RodgersST. LOUIS-Aaron Rodgers threw for 134 yards in a little more than a quarter of action, but it was backup quarterback B.J. Coleman who led the Packers’ only touchdown drive of the preseason to date, in a 19-7 win over the St. Louis Rams on Saturday night at the Edward Jones Dome.

Coleman became the fourth Packers quarterback to play in the game when he replaced Vince Young early in the fourth quarter. Coleman then led a 13-play, 75-yard drive he capped with a 9-yard touchdown pass to rookie tight end Jake Stoneburner. Coleman was quarterbacking an offense of third-team reserves against wholesale Rams substitutions on defense.

The Packers held a 12-0 lead heading into the fourth quarter, as Mason Crosby kicked three field goals and Giorgio Tavecchio kicked one.

Coleman might have rejoined the battle for the backup quarterback job with his performance on Saturday. He completed eight of 13 passes for 86 yards. Graham Harrell was five of 10 for 44 and Young was five of nine for 26.

The game was dominated by the Packers defense, which made two goal-line stands, but the Packers lost their shutout bid in the final minute of the game when the Rams engineered a garbage-time touchdown drive.

    Where are all the 2 – 14 predictions tonight?

    Good DF play looked more agressive. Offense needs more time it looks like the line has improved but still not in sync yet. Next game probably starters will play more and get a better look at the team. Nice to have the win.

    maybe it’s time to give up on the Harrell for quarterback backup experiment.

    So proud of Johnny Jolly. I sincerely hope he will make the final roster. He has proven he deserves another chance so let’s give him one!

    the d was good tonight ? who did they play ! this d cant stop any o with an average qb or better.and quite frankly it didn’t stop the rams from moving the ball but you do have to tip your hat to tricky dom for keeping the high powered rams offense out of the endzone…when week 1 is over you will clearly see why this team cant compte against playoff caliber teams.. but because of a-rod it will have a chance to make the playoffs…this team dosent lack talent it just has poor coaching……..

    Coleman should be our #2 QB. He proved this last year in pre-season as well. Mystery to me why this is not obvious to everyone.

    Coleman is by far the obvious pick for back up. Give the guy the ball! I agree with Jimbo, BJ proved his worth in last years pre-season.

    BJ is the better Qb at this time with the most upside. Make him the backup. Look at his numbers at Chattanooga.

    Coleman looks to be a good back-up to A-Rod. Jolly needs to make the roster. Hyde? Where did this kid come from. He looks like a starter.
