In a nutshell, the Packers first half stunk

Aside from the first drive by the Green Bay Packers first team offense, the first half of the team’s first preseason game was nothing short of forgettable.

Packers quarterback led the Packers down the field in their hurry-up offense on the team’s first possession, but Green Bay failed to score any points when they went for the touchdown on fourth and one.

When James Starks failed to score one wondered if the outcome would have been different had rookie Eddie Lacy been in the game.

On the Cardinals first couple of possessions the Packers played some good run defense, but were soft on the pass defense, especially Davon House, who got beat a couple of times, once for a touchdown.

That TD came after Graham Harrell threw an interception.

The Cardinals scored again late in the first quarter when Harrell Fumbled on a sack at midfield.

To sum up the first half, the Packers had interceptions, fumbles, dropped balls, false starts. In a nutshell, things did not go well for the Packers.

The second half should be interesting as B.J. Coleman and Vince Young are yet to take the field.

Will the Packers score some points?
