  Titans | B.J. Coleman works out    Thu Nov 13, 10:19 AM

Free-agent QB B.J. Coleman (Packers) worked out for the Tennessee Titans Tuesday, Nov. 11.

Footballguys view: Coleman originally started his college career at the University of Tennessee. He transferred to Tennessee-Chatanooga and was a late-round darling by some in the draftnik community. Coleman didn't latch on for very long with the Packers, but he has a strong arm and can execute crisp play fakes.

  Patriots | Work out 11 players    Fri Sep 6, 06:44 PM

The New England Patriots worked out free-agent QB Austin Davis (Rams), QB B.J. Coleman (Packers), QB Graham Harrell (Jets), RB Damien Berry (Ravens), RB Jonathan Dwyer (Steelers), RB Cameron Marshall (Dolphins), WR Josh Bellamy (Chiefs), WR Chad Bumphis (Dolphins), DT Sione Fua (Panthers), DT Clinton McDonald (Seahawks) and DT Andre Neblett (Buccaneers) Friday, Sept. 6.

Footballguys view: Dwyer is the most talented name on the list, but the Patriots are only doing these tryouts to have a pool of players to choose from if they suffer injuries at these positions.

  Packers | B.J. Coleman cut    Mon Sep 2, 11:29 AM

The Green Bay Packers waived QB B.J. Coleman.

Footballguys view: Coleman just wasn't getting it done. He has a strong arm and runs play action fakes well. However, his accuracy and decision making need a lot of work. The Packers added Seneca Wallace to be the primary backup behind Aaron Rodgers.

  49ers | B.J. Daniels in mix for No. 2 QB job    Sat Aug 17, 11:53 AM

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said QB B.J. Daniels has joined the competition for the No. 2 quarterback job. Coleman went 6-for-9 for 72 yards and one touchdown in the team's preseason game Friday, Aug. 16.

Footballguys view: Daniels is in the mix along with Colt McCoy and Scott Tolzien. The athletic rookie from South Florida can evade the rush with ease. However, he struggles with accuracy when on the run.

  Packers | All four QBs will play in preseason game    Thu Aug 8, 02:22 PM

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said QBs Aaron Rodgers, Vince Young, Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman will all see playing time during the first preseason game.

Footballguys view: We may not see much from Rodgers in their first preseason game. However, we should see more of the backups because they need to get work and establish pecking order. Young has a good chance to win the backup job behind Rodgers as Harrell and Coleman have struggled to make a positive impression.

  Packers | B.J. Coleman throws two picks at practice    Sun Aug 4, 11:29 AM

Green Bay Packers QB B.J. Coleman threw two interceptions during practice Saturday, Aug. 3, with one of the interceptions being returned for a touchdown.

Footballguys view: Coleman was known for having a gunslinger mentality in college as he has ultimate confidence in his strong arm. He has to be safer with the ball if he wants to beat out Graham Harrell for the backup job behind Aaron Rodgers.

  Packers | Backup QBs splitting reps    Fri Jul 26, 02:05 PM

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday, July 26, that QBs B.J. Coleman and Graham Harrell are splitting reps down the middle, and they will both have an opportunity to win the backup job in training camp and the preseason season.

  Packers | Will have competition for No. 2 QB job    Sat Jul 20, 11:15 AM

Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo said the team will give QBs Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman even reps during training camp and allow them to compete for the No. 2 quarterback job.

Footballguys view: Harrell offers little as an emergency starter. His arm is weak and he struggles with decision making under pressure. Coleman has a rocket arm and can run play fakes effectively. We like Coleman's ability to quickly diagnose coverage but he needs to stop forcing passes. Harrell has more experience as Coleman is entering his second year.

  Packers | B.J. Coleman not pushing for No. 2 QB job    Thu Jun 6, 02:13 PM

Green Bay Packers QB B.J. Coleman does not appear to have done anything this offseason to push QB Graham Harrell for the No. 2 quarterback job.

Footballguys view: This contradicts an earlier report out of Packers minicamp. Coleman has a rocket arm but needs to make better decisions as a passer or he may end up on the practice squad again this year. Harrell is a poor backup QB and it would be a major blow for the Packers if Aaron Rodgers missed even a little time due to injury.
