Packers hope Coleman stays under the radar

We don’t want to say this too loudly (ahahahahha, right. You’re writing this for the World Wide Web, you idiot) … but the Green Bay Packers have their collective fingers crossed.

By cutting third string quarterback B.J. Coleman, GM Ted Thompson and the Packers brass are taking a chance in hopes that their 2012 draft pick goes unnoticed by the rest of the league. Past modus operandi by the Packers has been to keep three quarterbacks, with one on the practice squad in case of injuries.

Though Coleman saw very little playing time during the preseason, that was by design. You see, the Packers really like this guy. Yes, he’s got some technical issues, but he’s a strong guy with a strong arm. He just needs a lot of coaching in the Packers quarterback school. They’ve done it before and they are hoping they can do it again with Coleman.

But he has to clear the wires first … At least we’re sure the Packers are hoping that’s the case.
