In just his sixth practice with the team, QB Vince Young has really started to get comfortable in the Packers' offense and has gotten rid of a lot of the rust that he came in with.
During an individual drill in which the quarterbacks faked a handoff and rolled out to throw a pass into the target netting, Young was on top of his game. Rolling to his left and throwing across his body, Young went 3 for 3 in the drill, successfully landing each of his passes into the small netted opening. He was by far the most accurate quarterback in that drill, even better than Aaron Rodgers.
In team drills, Young was throwing downfield with much more frequency than he had been. He connected with Myles White down the seam and later hit Matthew Mulligan for a touchdown.
"Vince Young is clearly different today than he was this time last week," McCarthy said. "He's progressing. We've been able to spend some extra time with him. It's been beneficial."
This comes as comforting news for Packer fans, as Young could serve as a solid stopgap option if Rodgers were to get injured.
