Packers fall to Seahawks despite Young's surprisingly good performance, 17-10

Despite Aaron Rodgers completing 4/7 passes for 41 yards and a field goal, the Packers fell to the Seahawks last night at Lambeau Field, 17-10. This loss included a lot of penalties and failed rushing plays, but in the end I think the pros in this one beat the cons. 

While playing throughout the second quarter and most of the third, backup QB Graham Harrell really struggled. He rarely threw the ball, and whenever he handed the ball off it resulted in a loss of yards. Overall, he completed just 6/13 passes for 49 yards. He really needs to get this turned around. 

In his two drives of the game, Vince Young actually played really well, completing 6/7 passes for 41 passing yards, rushing for a team-best 39 yards, and throwing the team's only touchdown pass of the night. Now this one game probably won't completely change the way the coaching staff looks at him, but it'll definitely help. We'll just have to see how he is next Thursday in KC.
