actually, the Packers did just that intentionally last night with Harrell. that is not the norm, but Rodgers was pulled against the Seahawks after a series and Harrell came in for the rest of the 1st half.
One of the battles the Case is facing with yates is exact that...Kubiak saw Yates not fall totally apart again real NFL defenses. The offense went conservative and Yates was pretty meh from a big picture NFL QBing perspective, but given the situation Yates did better than expected.
May or may not be totally fair, keenum has to legitimately outplay Yates based the "experience" of yates against real competition. Thought this was pretty obvious.
