Vince Young is something like 31-13 as a starter (compared to 6-15 for Wallace), and the Titans weren't exactly a shining example of a good team.



He won 17 games over his first 2 years playing a lot like Seneca did for us vs Chicago. The Titans couldn't have been all bad. Plus whatever happened 7 years ago doesn't change the fact that he's been such garbage lately that not a single NFL team even wants him as a 3rd stringer.

Vince Young is an athlete with limited intelligence. The reason he hasn't made it in the NFL is not a physical thing, it is that he cannot learn a complicated offense.

Now, Seneca Wallace has spent most of his career in a WCO - but he is obviously out of his league right now and should be retired. Uncle Ted has now been caught with his pants down. We have been playing Russian roulette by not having a decent backup, and it is now biting us in the ass.

The only real gripe I have with Wallace is his height. 5'11. Other than that, lets give him time with the starters before we write him off completely.

Yeah, let's trot out a QB's record as a reason for why they should/should not be the QB, because, you know, there aren't 52 other players on the team. Tim Tebow has a winning record. But please, wins and losses are all on the quarterbacks. Utterly spastic.

I think there is an honest debate between who would have done better for us between Young and Wallace. That's a knock on both. There's a reason why Young doesn't have a job in the NFL despite all the quarterbacks that have dropped like flies this year. A 97 year old Brett Favre got a call before Vince Young.

I'm not even going to dignify Coleman or Harrell.

I'm willing to give Wallace a chance to be a stopgap this week, in part because there is a difference between being thrown in on a surprise injury versus preparing for the week (for everyone that clamored for Flynn to come back on this site or otherwise, no one seems to recall his abysmal performance in Detroit when Rodgers got concussed), and in part because there aren't a ton of viable options out there. Lots of teams don't have a starting quarterback, let alone a backup.

Yes that performance was disappointing. Yes we should be looking at all our options. No, we shouldn't hit the panic button and completely write off Wallace. It's Canadian football for him: he's fucked up first down, and now he gets second down or he has to punt (incidentally, probably to the CFL).

The backup this week needs to prepare himself as if he will be the starter. We need to have that contingency plan this week. It will be interesting to see how things go.

I stopped reading when I saw you refer to Skip Bayless' opinion being a good idea. He's the biggest idiot known to man when it comes to anything sports.

He measured 6' 1" at the combine.

Yeah, Seneca gets his fair shot.

If you could put Seneca's brain into Vince's body, you'd have the perfect QB.

Same thing with Harrell and Coleman. I think Seneca has a better presence out there though. He did tend to run backwards like George Plimpton a few times, but I don't think he's as intimidated by the stage as Harrell.

So we got guys with brains, lacking the physical tools and guys with tools lacking the brains. I guess the question is, which would you prefer?

I don't have to start calling you Rand Keys do I?

Just tell Zero to go get bent. He's an accolade whore, who loves his little butt kissers around here who tell him how awesome he is.

I've been around since 2008. I'm well aware.

BTW, I have to be honest, I don't get the Rand Keys reference. What's that from?

Then he shrunk Razz Packers.com and his personal bio list him at 5'11. The other backup we have is 6'2.

I do think it's good, but I just thought it was funny we have a thread dedicated to something you singled out as no one considering. Smile

I'm starting Seneca Wallace on my fantasy team in place of Aaron Rodgers.

Bayliss is a tool's tool. I wouldn't waste my time ready his crap.

Uncle Teddy did gamble at the QB position and has done so for years. Trouble is you can "win" with the gamble for years but when you are wrong the team is screwed up big time.

you can not have one backup in OTAs, drop him and pick up another in TC. Cut him and pick up still another once the season has begun and expect the QB to do anything. Right or wrong stick him one guy and team him the system.

Batliss is a tool, there is a reason they call there set "the debate table", Johnathan A. usually takes one side and Bayliss takes the other, another of the ESPN shows that is more concerned about ratings, rather than actual facts in a lot of cases.

What pisses Bayliss off the most is that he can't get Aaron to "bite" and come on the show to debate him.

He knows the ratings would go through the roof if Aaron did that.

He wouldn't care if Aaron(and he probably would), would make him look like the fool he does most of the time because in ESPN's mind the show would be a success because of the huge rating boost.

Someday Bayliss might realize that Aaron Rodgers is way to smart to fall for such crap, if not, he will continue to spew his idiocy all over the ESPN airways hoping he will get a reaction from Packer fans.

The joke is on him, because the only forums I see benefitting is ones like this one, with posters who keep their comments here and don't fall for his dumbass remarks.

Edit: back on topic, looks like Ted and Mike have made the decision to stick with Wallace and Tolzien, their decisions have kept the Packers "in the hunt" the past 8 years, so I am not going to over react to anything until we all see just how much 6 days of preparation can do for Wallace and Tolzien.

These games could be "ugly", but if they can pull out a couple of wins the next 3 weeks it will be another successful "no move" on Teds part.
