Best bet on the Tube


Aaron Rodgers was ready. So was Matt Flynn, who has moved on to the Seattle Seahawks. Now it’s Graham Harrell’s turn to show he can handle a significant quarterback role with the Green Bay Packers. Harrell figures to get plenty of playing time in the Packers’ preseason opener at San Diego today ( 5 p.m. on ESPN), another step for the former Texas Tech star to prove he’s up to the task of serving as Rodgers’ primary backup this season. And while he’d love to air it out, Harrell knows his first job is showing he can manage the huddle. Harrell has been with the Packers the past two seasons, but has yet to take a regular-season snap. – AP
