McCarthy: Tolzein Did A Lot of Good Things in Preseason Opener

After yesterday's preseason-opening loss to the Titans, Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy told the Green Bay Press-Gazette that backup QB candidate Scott Tolzein "did a lot of good things."

As for evidence for his opinion, unsurprisingly, McCarthy pointed to Tolzein's conversion of a 2nd and 20 that got the Pack into the red zone, probably the team's offensive highlight of the night.

Overall, as I wrote yesterday, Tolzein impressively completed 8 of his 12 passes for 124 yards in the contest, numbers that, should they keep coming, will likely land him a place on the team.

Remember, going into this year's training camp #16's competing with fellow arms Matt Flynn and Chase Rettig for a spot on the main roster, something that'd be a pretty big upgrade from his third-string role last season.

It was just nice to see competent backup QB. Last preseason, it was brutal watching Graham Harrell and other struggle. But Flynn and Tolzien look just as limited as they did in 2013.
