Aaron Rodgers goes just one series for Green Bay

Aaron Rodgers AP

The third preseason game is usually considered the biggest test of the preseason for starters as first-team units typically play into the second half.

But if you’re Aaron Rodgers and you’ve thrown for at least 3,900 yards and 28 touchdowns in each of the last five seasons, getting extensive work in the third preseason game probably isn’t all that vital.

Rodgers played just one series for the Green Bay Packers in their match-up with the Seattle Seahawks on Friday night. Rodgers finished 4 for 7 for 41 yards on a drive that ended in a 38-yard field goal from Mason Crosby.

Graham Harrell replaced Rodgers at quarterback and the Packers promptly went three-and-out on their first possession with Harrell at the helm.

The Packers and Seahawks currently are tied at 3-3 midway through the second quarter.

    When you’re the best player in football, preseason doesn’t matter.

    (And yes, Aaron Rodgers IS the best player in football)

    Why does Pete Carroll chew a pack of gum?

  3. herlies says: Aug 23, 2013 9:07 PM

    He shouldn’t have played at all.

    Those backups need reps. Bad.

    Wilson throws a pick, Sherman grabs Jones because he can’t keep up……the shape of things to come. Pretenders.

  5. everyoneholdsorakpo says: Aug 23, 2013 9:11 PM

    Sherman…beat again….this time by VA Tech alum Boykin. Packers are schooling the “mighty” hawks now

    Lol Crapkers. Seahawks dominated Fraudgers just like they did in September when they won on that correctly-called Hail Mary TD to Golden Tate.

    Rodgers was just in during a commercial break. Unfortunately he didn’t have that much time between his last one and his next one.

    Some of the luckiest catches I’ve ever seen from gb. Luck or skill either way kudos gb will take it.

  9. vikefan says: Aug 23, 2013 9:17 PM

    he still cant handle seattles D

  10. everyoneholdsorakpo says: Aug 23, 2013 9:24 PM

    2 rotten passes in a row by Wilson. 2 drives….2 picks. Looks like these seahawks need a little more practice. Pretenders

    Looking good Rodgers.

  12. granadafan says: Aug 23, 2013 9:35 PM

    How happy are you to pay full price tickets with full price parking, concessions, apparel, etc for this preseason farce?

  13. laxcoach37 says: Aug 23, 2013 9:39 PM

    I have never seen more late hits and holding like this Seahawks team. Maybe the Adderall has them too aggresive? In the meantime, the Seattle O played Wilson the whole 1st half and they could not do a thing. Can you say Overrated?

  14. axespray says: Aug 23, 2013 9:44 PM

    With Roster cuts coming soon, someone has got to win the backup job.

    A nice test against a pretty good seattle defense, so of course Graham sort of was completely “meh.”

  15. jimmysee says: Aug 23, 2013 9:48 PM

    Crosby hit the field goal!

    Woo-hoo!

  16. jrazz22 says: Aug 23, 2013 9:51 PM

    Seattle is looking good….not.

    How is #27 doing? Last week he was a hall of gamer?

  18. beerbratscheese says: Aug 23, 2013 10:01 PM

    3-3 as I type this midway through the third quarter. Russell Wilson looked awesome in the first drive, but average since. Rodgers only played one possession. I really like the Packers chances should these teams meet in the playoffs.

  19. 7ransponder says: Aug 23, 2013 11:01 PM

    Meanwhile:

    Lacy, 8 carries for minus 5 yards with a long run of 3. Yeah, superstar in the making here folks!

  20. stanmarshmorelikestandarsh says: Aug 23, 2013 11:33 PM

    Packers stock is ridiculous. If the Pack was smart, they would let the state government fleece over the taxpayers for their new stadium, like Minnesota. Oh wait……

  21. osiris33 says: Aug 23, 2013 11:48 PM

    Terrible officiating just ruined this game.

  22. justlntuckrule says: Aug 24, 2013 12:41 AM

    If IRG-Me doesn’t need the preseason, then why should Rogers? Besides, it’s his BFF’s birthday, can’t show up all bruised.

  23. anygivensundayfan says: Aug 24, 2013 1:49 AM

    I would love to know what the original game plan was cuz it sure looked like GB pulled Rodgers early because the aggressive Seattle defense was putting the hurt on him. Which either makes GB look like pansies or like smart pre-season game managers depending on your allegiances (or perhaps both haha)

  24. vertskate900 says: Aug 24, 2013 2:24 AM

    The Packers strike me as the team that’s too careful for their own good…kinda like that Colts team under Jim Caldwell who purposely blew the chance at a perfect season.

  25. sgl24pack says: Aug 24, 2013 2:38 AM

    You’d like to see him get more reps in. Whatever works for him though..Just better be ready for Week 1, man. Go Pack

  26. viachicago22 says: Aug 24, 2013 2:55 AM

    Remember when Seattle beat Green Bay on that hail mary? That was awesome! #memories

  27. dino2997 says: Aug 24, 2013 3:21 AM

    All the Packers have is Rodgers. Why let her get hurt?

  28. daddawolf says: Aug 24, 2013 5:51 AM

    Let’s not forget Rodgers was sick this week…

  29. bla bla bla says: Aug 24, 2013 8:32 AM

    I see around the web where Seahag fans are crying about GB’s use of “exotic” defensive schemes last night. It was actually quite vanilla for a Dom Capers 3-4. The players just executed well… finally.

    If they didn’t like what they got last night, they REALLY won’t like what they see the next time these 2 teams match up.

    wouldn’t best player in football equal MVP? when was the last time he received that? I think a Vikings player has more recently as recently as last year

    best qb? maybe with manning & brady
    best player? Rogers needs to get in line

  31. chi01town says: Aug 24, 2013 9:15 AM

    Rodgers is HURT! he didnt go to practice before this game and then he dont play in the 3rd preseason game? Rodgers is HURT! and the 49ers will expose that fact as well. It feels real good to know the packers are done.

    Has Rodgers thrown a TD pass this preseason? with the O-line struggling, and no run game to speak of you would think the coaches would want to see something other that field goals from their starting players.

  35. scmems07 says: Aug 24, 2013 10:20 AM

    Wilson-kaepernick=milli vanilli

    Wilson and kaep are just like milli vanilli, they take all the credit from others that do all the hard work (defense)

  36. salmen76 says: Aug 24, 2013 11:57 AM

    Arron rogers is a wuss. One series with seattles d scared him right off the field. Ha ha. Bears will sweep the cheesy packers and easily win the div. Vince young will be the packs starter by week 6. Geaux saints!

  37. 7ransponder says: Aug 24, 2013 12:45 PM

    Packer fans say he doesn’t need the reps, I say this was a move to protect their multi-million dollar investment because they have no faith in their o-line. Come regular season, all bets are off though.

  38. kproffo says: Aug 24, 2013 3:09 PM

    LOL at the Vikings trolls. Adrian is only the 3rd best in the division.

  39. seahonky says: Aug 24, 2013 3:35 PM

    SMH at all of you Packer fans…All of your excuses won’t change history or how awful your O-line looked. It’s only preseason. Take what you learned from your loss and apply it for the regular season. As far as Wilson playing the first half? Most teams do that. It’s called preparation for the regular season.

  40. filthymcnasty1 says: Aug 24, 2013 4:36 PM

    This stuff might bother me if we didn’t have 13 World Championships. And it’s nice knowing that we have Vince looking after the franchise from above.
