Here come those pesky Packers. The problem with Green Bay is that sometimes you just don't know what you're going to get. This Sunday will most definitely be one of those days. They will be playing without Aaron Rodgers at starting QB. This greatly improves our chances of victory, of course. But then their backup QB, Seneca Wallace--who started last Sunday for the first time since 2011--went down with a groin injury. The Packers were left with a 3rd stringer; Scott Tolzien. Ever hear of him? Neither has most of Green Bay, apparently. Rodgers is gone for at least a month, with a fractured collar bone. If Wallace can't make it back in time for Sunday's matchup, you can expect the Packers to sign someone at QB to at least backup Tolzien in the unlikely event that he too goes down. So basically, expect the Packers to rely on their run game. Heavily. With a healthy James Stark and rookie sensation Eddie Lacy, Green Bay has got the personnel to make things work without a strong arm at QB. The only thing stopping them is the resurgence of the Giants defensive line. Bottom line is that we have the players in that front 7 to cause a lot of commotion for the Green Bay offense. Cullen Jenkins is fresh off the heels of perhaps his greatest performance as a Giant. and JPP and Justin Tuck look like they're ready to start playing football again. Green Bay is going to have to try and establish their ground game early, and with authority. The Giants will respond in kind, stuffing the RBs and forcing the hand of the untested Scott Tolzien. If Tolzien is forced to pass the ball more than 30 times on Sunday, it bodes extremely well for the Giants. It's all about setting the tone early. When the Packers have to go up in the air, the likely outcome will be anything but.

Green Bay’s Quarterback Woes Prompt Tweet of the Year From James Van Der Beek

Who Should be the QB Sunday for Your Green Bay Packers?

If you're like me, Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien were both pretty unfamiliar names until the last few weeks. Wallace was simply an unimpressive backup to the man himself, Aaron Rodgers (We miss you, Aaron...please get well soon!!). But then, last week Seneca Wallace started strong, but went out very early in the game with a groin injury. Just as quickly as his season...
