McCarthy: "The No. 2 spot hasn't been answered"

Despite the fact that the team just cut Graham Harrell yesterday, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is still saying that the backup QB job is up for grabs. So far, Young has definitely been better than Coleman, but I guess that's not enough in his eyes. 

“The No. 2 spot hasn’t been answered,” said McCarthy. “That’s where we are. B.J. and Vince are going to compete and take the majority of this football game (against Kansas City).”

I'd be shocked if Coleman beats out Young here. There are so many reasons why he shouldn't be the first guy off the bench. In the fourth quarter on Friday, playing against at least a third string defense, Coleman completed just 2/7 passes for 8 yards. Now I do think that Coleman is better than Harrell, but not better than Young in any way. The fact that McCarthy is considering this is, in my opinion, completely stupid.
