I assume you saw the same preseason games I saw, and for sure you watched last Monday night. I rest my case.

A decent backup QB should be able to come in the game and do like Josh McCown did when Cutler went out for the Bears ....... or a helluva lot of other backup QBs before that. Vince Young's ability to run combined with the game Lacy had would have been enough to beat the Bears, and if you don't think he would have been able to throw better than Wallace, well, you're beyond help.

BTW, my wife is 28, and she doesn't know who Emma Watson is either.


May as well throw this in here since this is about Seneca. I was blown away after listening to the Tuesdays with Aaron yesterday when he said that Seneca maybe gets 4 snaps ALL WEEK with the starters. Mainly shocked because I really don't think Rodgers would need that much practice during the week anyways...then again with having new receivers/tight ends, I guess that changes slightly.

Regardless, Wallace took 4 snaps with the starters all week and then is thrown to the wolves against a rival. I'm not making excuses for the guy because I honestly think the Packers have shot themselves in the foot with this back-up situation but to only have 4 overall snaps with the starters in one week isn't going to set you up for much success come game time.

This is something Bayless wouldn't understand as he continues to stand on his tiny soapbox. To bring in someone like Vince Young would put us right back to where we were on Monday vs the Bears. Guaranteed that brain of VY's has already forgot about the Packers playbook.

Vince Young's BRAIN a problem? Didn't they say that about, oh let's see, Terry Bradshaw? Phil Simms? and oh yeah, some guy named Favre?

This is the height of uninformed speculation. If somebody wanted to bring up his past psychological problems or whatever, fine, that was documented, I guess, although it is about equally speculative saying it might recur. But calling the guy stupid? Come on!

This is all irrelevant because apparently Vince Young isn't even being remotely considered. The discussion SHOULD be at this point, do the Packers just write off the Eagles game by using Wallace? Or do they get Tolzien in there and at least have some chance?

Vince Young is a run first pass second type player.. just like Wallace. How does that improve our chances? Young was the guy that didn't fit the offense in the preseason?

Will Wallace? Don't know.. but I certainly know this, the Packers will tailor the game plan this week for Wallace behind center.. bootleg and getting him to the edge of the defense more often. The one large limitation with Wallace.. I don't think he will scare the defense over the top.. so they are going to have to call a game much the same as last week with intermediate throws and probably a number of dig or drag routes trying to get the receivers some angles to get some YAC.

Personally.. I wish Coleman with that big arm developed and had enough time in the system to have more of the playbook available. But Young got here late this camp.. and quite honestly wouldn't be much more comfortable than Wallace at this point. Not sure about Flynn.. but if I had to guess, his is confidence has to broken to a point where he is not viable. Either that or he seriously burnt some bridges in Green Bay on the way out.


I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

If I had known me linking that thread would throw you into making unnecessary rude comments, I'd have kept it to myself. My apologies.

I worry more about him seeing the passing lanes through with taller defensive players in his face. The protection on the edges just got that much more important. The defense needs to do a much better job at making the plays that are there as well. Packers.com showed some great cases where they were inches close to making a big play but just didn't get it done.

I think they're gonna roll him out and move the pocket for him a little bit. Mike will have some wrinkles.

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.


I hear you and for the most part I agree but the thing is you (maybe not you specifically but so many people TBP for instance) are saying that Wallace was a bad gamble after one poor showing in a game for which he had very little to no preparation. We have no way of knowing right now if this team is screwed or not. We may be and after this Sunday we will have a better idea but for now, no matter what some people would have you believe, we simply don't have enough information to reliably say one way or the other. We all have our opinions but you know what they say about opinions.




I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.

I am not basing my opinion on 1 game.
Actually we do have enough data on Seneca to make an informed decision. he has been on 5 other teams. There are some poor GMs and HCs out there but what are the odds that all of them are wrong? Its slim.
I can wait around for 3-4 weeks and say Wallace stinks or I can say what I think right now before all the "proof" is in. I would like to be wrong. I will be at the game Sunday with my son. I am not saying Gb won't win any games while Aaron is out. I am saying Wallace is not a quality starting QB at this stage of his career and if GB wins it will be because other players win it or because Philly loses it.
