Kickers, quarterbacks great as Packers beat Rams 19-7

Mason Crosby made all three field goals he attempted, Aaron Rodgers completed 10/12 passes for 134 yards, and Eddie Lacy had 8 rushes for a combined 40 yards as the Packers easily beat the Rams Saturday night, 19-7, to even up their preseason record at 1-1. These games don't matter, but it's nice to beat another team. 

Graham Harrell, who was terrible last week against Arizona, completed just 5/10 passes in this one for 44 yards. B.J. Coleman, who many see as the team's automatic third stringer, was actually really good, completing 8/13 throws for 86 yards and the teams only touchdown. In my opinion, he could be the frontrunner for the backup job right now if Vince Young doesn't get hot. 

Speaking of Young, he wasn't terrible either, going 5/9 for 26 yards. He could've been better, but this was still a step in the right direction for him. We'll have to see if he keeps improving.

Seeing what Lacy could do was the real treat. He broke through arm tackles on a couple runs and made that spin move on the screen pass. According to Football Outsiders, the Rams were very good last season against the run, so Lacy's success looks even better. The key will be to stay healthy.
