It’s rarely a good thing when a player who has lost a battle for a starting position isn’t informed of the coach’s decision until the media who have been informed of the coach’s decision asks said player about … um … said decision.
Such was the case today when Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy declared that Daryn Colledge (that's his mug shot on the right) had won the starting LG job over first-round pick Bryan Bulaga for the season-opener against the Eagles.
The Green Bay Press Gazette has the story.
After he was told he would not be a starter, Bulaga said, “This is the first I know about it, so we’ll see. I’m sure they have a plan and we’ll just take it day by day. … He won the job, Coach made a decision. That’s what it is. Obviously I’m disappointed I’m not the guy, but been nicked up a little bit. That’s just the way it goes.”
I do love Colledge’s response, though.
“Awesome, I didn’t know I wasn’t the starter originally,” said Colledge.
