Greg McMackin said the Warriors will have a quarterback-platoon system with Inoke Funaki and Greg Alexander.
Last week, Alexander was the No. 3 quarterback, taking “mental reps” in practice while Funaki and Tyler Graunke split time with the No. 1 offense.
This week, Funaki and Alexander will split reps with the No. 1 team.
McMackin praised Alexander’s development, noting that he has improved his ability to read defenses and go through his progressions of offensive options.
Offensive coordinator Ron Lee said he liked the way Alexander remained focused during the first half, in which he spent on the sideline as an observer. Alexander entered in the third quarter and threw two scoring passes, the second with 20 seconds remaining.

One of the unheralded stars was Tim Grasso, who placed three punts inside the 5.
His hands, in fact, deserved more credit than his right foot. It was difficult to keep the football dry because of the constant rain. Grasso’s palms were dark red from the color bleeding from the wet footballs.
