For the first three quarters, the Packers took advantage of Seattle's mistakes before crumbling after several missed opportunities in the fourth. Green Bay built a 19-7 lead early in the fourth against the defending champion Seahawks in Sunday's NFC championship game before letting it slip away in a 28-22 loss in overtime. Russell Wilson's 35-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse 3:19 into the extra period won it. The Packers' defense intercepted the Seahawks' Russell Wilson four times and forced five Seattle turnovers.

Bryan Bennett, Marcus Mariota's former backup, comes ready to play (Shutdown Corner)
User Rating: / 0
Wednesday, 28 January 2015
MOBILE, Ala. — Southeastern Louisiana quarterback Bryan Bennett didn't look Wednesday like a man who had barely slept on his way to the Senior Bowl. In the middle of a workout on Tuesday in Carlsbad, Calif. preparing for the NFL draft, Bennett got a call asking if he wanted to be a late replacement on the roster for Auburn's Nick Marshall, who made the last-minute move from QB to cornerback. Bennett didn't hesitate to answer. "I said, 'Absolutely yes,'" Bennett said. The former Oregon transfer, who was beaten out by Marcus Mariota for the starting job in 2012, threw for 580 yards with nine touchdowns and three interceptions and rushed for 365 yards and six TDs backing up Mariota and former starter Darron Thomas. He decided to play his final two seasons in Hammond, La. Having missed out on the chance to play in the Ducks' high-powered offense, Bennett did his best to dominate as a run-pass threat for the Lions — more so in 2013 than this past season — but failed to get an initial invitation to the Senior Bowl.  In 2013, Bennett completed 60.7 percent of his passes for 3,165 yards, 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, and ran for 1,046 yards and 16 touchdowns. During an injury-plagued (shoulder) senior season, Bennett’s effectiveness dropped off in 2014: a mere 49.5 completion percentage, but he did combine for 33 touchdowns (18 passing, 15 rushing). Bennett had no designs on passing on the late offer to attend the Senior Bowl, despite the logistical nightmare that came with it. Bennett finished his workout, picked up a few personel effects, boarded a 10:30 p.m. flight in San Diego, landed in Mobile at 8:30 a.m. and went to work. He grabbed his playbook from the Jacksonville Jaguars coaching staff, flipped through it as quickly as possible, and then received his shoulder pads from Southeastern Louisiana head coach Rob Roberts, who drove the 2.5 hours from Hammond to drop them off. By 1:30 p.m., Bennett was out on the field at Ladd-Peebles Stadium practicing with his new South team teammates. He didn't even have time to be tired — the NFL was awaiting his arrival. “I got a quick bag packed and headed out,” Bennett said. “I got a little sleep on the plane. But I am so excited to be here … being tired, I didn’t even really feel it.” Bennett's play was up and down in that first session, and his footwork needs work, coming from the spread systems he ran at both Oregon, playing sparingly in 2011 in mop-up games, and at Southeastern Louisiana, which runs a slower version of that scheme. Bennett also struggled more on Thursday with accuracy. Bennett has been working out west with former NFL quarterback Jordan Palmer, who has tutored other draft prospects in recent years, on his pocket feel and footwork in a pro-style system. "I want to show that I can be accurate from within the pocket," Bennett said. "Show that I can get down this NFL-style offense and the footwork that comes with the play-action, five-step, no hitch and the other stuff they ask you to do." In what looks to be a shaky QB class, even with the intriguing Mariota and the high-risk, high-reward Jameis Winston, there's a huge debate about the third best quarterback in the group. None of the quarterbacks in Mobile have done anything dramatic to separate themselves in that discussion, with UCLA's Brett Hundley — who chose not to attend the Senior Bowl — likely helping himself by not coming. The 6-2, 210-pound Bennett has the requisite skills to catch the attention of the NFL, and there already is one head coach who knows his skills well. Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, who chose Mariota over Bennett at Oregon, saw his former pupil and the two chatted briefly before Wednesday's practice. Bennett said they maintain a good relationship. Bennett watched Mariota put up monster numbers at Oregon, especially in this past season, when he won the Heisman Trophy. "It was great to compete with [Mariota], and to see him do well was awesome," Bennett said. "He definitely worked for it. Just to be able to get to compete there and to see us both get an opportunity in the NFL is great." As for any jealousy or Bennett taking a that-could-have-been-me attitude toward the man who beat him out ... "I tried not to focus on it that way," Bennett said. "I just tried to do what I had to do to get better where I was." Bennett's athleticism was easy to see in practice, especially when he scrambled for 15 yards on one broken play on Wednesday. Oregon tried to use him elsewhere — safety and receiver — to see if a position swtch might be in order. It was not, and Bennett got his chance to quarterback at a high level on a smaller stage. Now he'll keep working toward trying to play at the highest of levels. Considering the lack of proven talent in the crop this year, it would not be shocking to see his name called on the third day of the draft. "He's a great athlete for sure," said Central Arkansas WR Dezmin Lewis, who is training with Bennett in San Diego and his North team teammate. "The fact that he got here is great. It shows how much he wants to compete. I think he'll do real well. I've gotten to know him, and I know he's a player. I am glad he's out here. He deserves it." - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

Randall Cunningham is set for one more turnover he doesn't mind committing. The former All-Pro quarterback is auctioning off memorabilia from a fantastic NFL career to raise funds for the church he serves in Las Vegas. Cunningham is ridding himself of just about every game-used jersey, helmet and trophy accumulated over a 16-year career spent mostly with the Philadelphia Eagles. Cunningham is now a pastor at Remnant Ministries in Las Vegas and hoped to put a portion of the proceeds toward the $6.2 million needed for renovations that should help the youth in the Las Vegas area.
