We figured something like this was coming. We didn’t figure on Seneca Wallace, though.
The Green Bay Packers signed Wallace today to back up Aaron Rodgers. They also cut the cord on B.J. Coleman at the same time. Wallace spent time with the San Francisco 49ers this preseason and word out of San Fran was that he was going to retire.
Of course, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh is a gigantic dick, so you should never believe anything he has to say. That guy will try to stick it to your sister when you’re not looking.
So, Wallace. He’s a career backup and he’s been in the league since 2005.
He played five seasons in Seattle and two in Cleveland, but he hasn’t played since 2011, so he’s kind of a reclamation project like the last guy Big Ted brought in, Vince Young.
Unlike Young, Wallace does not win games. His career record is 6-15. He has had some success throwing the football, though. In his career, Wallace has passed for 4,808 yards, 31 TDs and 18 interceptions.
His best season came in 2008, when he threw for 1,532 yards, 11 TDs and three interceptions in eight starts.
As you’ve probably deduced, the best thing Wallace does it not turn the football over. That’s something that can’t be said for Coleman, who likes to chuck it into double coverage from time to time.
Now, Wallace just has to learn the offense in a little less than a week. Seems totally doable.
