Green Bay Packers: Seneca Wallace?

Sure, Aaron Rodgers will be the starter for the Green Bay Packers Sunday. What happens if the reigning MVP goes down on Sunday? Who’s going to take his place and run Mike McCarthy’s complex offense?

Graham Harrell? He was booted by the Packers for his poor performance in the preseason and is now playing for the New York Jets.

Vince Young? He was recently cut by the Packers. Ted Thompson shouldered the blame, saying:

“We threw a lot at Vince. A lot on his plate. He was a good teammate. The fault is probably mine. Should have brought him in sooner. The fault is mine.”

How about B.J. Coleman? Does he meet the prerequisites to back up Rodgers? Wrong again. Green Bay released him yesturday.

So let me get this straight. If Aaron Rodgers goes down on Sunday, the Packers will have to start sending Mason Crosby in for 70-yard field goals?

Don’t be crazy.

Their new savior is Seneca Wallace. Wait, the Seneca Wallace who backed up Matt Hasselbeck at Seattle?

Yup.

What could he possibly bring to the table?

Knowing Ted Thompson’s past genius, I have learned to never doubt him. Wallace was just released by the San Francisco 49ers prior to signing with Green Bay. Though he was only with the San Francisco 49ers for a short time, he may possibly be the FBI agent for the Packers in their game plan come Sunday.

    This was a horrible job done by TT and MM. Love them leading our team, but I think they would be the first to admit they have failed in getting a decent backup QB ready to go this year. Bottom line is if AR goes down, we will not be able to move the ball at all. That is no reflection on Wallace, just a fact.

    Many,as myself have often argued who should/would be the backup QB in Green Bay as it’s part of being a fan.However,there comes a time when the attempt to justify arguments for that ‘esteemed’ position needs to fade away as like ‘Tebow-mania’.

    The drop off from the majority of starting QBs to the backup is for most a tad past minimal and for the few teams that are lucky enough to have what are deemed ‘Elite’ QBs the drop off is so severe,the worry and depressed feeling some fans put themselves in is simply wasted energy.
