Packers Versus Patriots Recap | Alonzo Harris Should Make The Team

Packers versus Patriots Pre Season
As promised, here is our review of some of the individual performances within for the Packers in their first preseason game against the Patriots.

Aaron Rodgers: The 2014 MVP looked decent in his 2015 debut. Rodgers finished the night 11 for 19 passing for 117 yards, all in the first quarter. Ironically that sets the record for the most passes in the first quarter Rodgers has ever thrown in his career.

Scott Tolzien: Wow, what a difference two years makes. This is a completely different Scott Tolzien than the one the Packers were force to throw to the Wolves two years ago when Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone. Tolzien looks sharp, prepared, confidant, and ready to go if Rodgers gets hurt again. Tolzien finished the night 10 for 16 for 107 yards and a gorgeous touchdown pass to Jeff Janis.

Brett Hundley: The rookie looked like a deer caught in the headlights in his first NFL game, which is about what we expected of him. Hundley finished 4 of 6 for 60 yards and a touchdown. He's improved since the start of training camp, and showed some spark before giving up the ball in the fourth quarter to Matt Blanchard out of Wisconsin-Whitewater, who has no shot of making this team, but it was fun watching him.

Eddie Lacy: Eddie Lacy had a solid night, five carries for 36 yards before his night was done. We won't see much out of him this preseason.

James Starks: The Packers number two back had five carries for a measly 12 yards before his night was done. However, Starks did have three catches for 38 yards as well. Much like Lacy, we won't see much from him this preseason, so don't read into his numbers too much.

Rajon Neal: The first of the three competitors for the third running back spot finished the night with four carries for 15 yards, and did nothing to help his cause.

John Crockett: The candidate number two for the third running back job, had a little bit better of a night than candidate number one, finishing with 10 carries for 26 yards.

Alonzo Harris: On the other hand, candidate number three made a loud statement about his desire to be the third running back. Harris finished the night with seven carries for 41 yards and a touchdown, and found holes to run through all night.

The Packers Defense: The Defense had a solid night collectively, which shows McCarthy spending more time with the defense may actually pay off.
