Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson told USA Today’s Tom Pelissero that he is responsible for bringing in backup Seneca Wallace even though the former Cleveland Browns quarterback was not familiar with the offense. Before the start of the season, the Packers released quarterbacks Graham Harrell, who spent the 2010 and 2011 seasons on the team’s practice squad before winning the backup job last season, Vince Young and B.J. Coleman. Just six days before the Packers first game, Seneca Wallace was brought in to backup Aaron Rodgers. “If something went wrong at the backup quarterback position, it’s my fault,” said Thompson. “It’s not somebody else’s fault. It’s not even one of those quarterbacks’ fault. I just didn’t get it worked out right.” Wallace was forced into action after starter Aaron Rodgers broke his left collarbone in 

4 Comments:
  • Well at least he admits it, that's something. What the heck was TT thinking anyway?
  • Good old Ted blows it again. Think team, not money.
  • it's about time he owns this mess. So the team is suppose to put themselves on the line when you don't even think of a backup plan for your $120M investment? Why should anyone else put themselves on the line week to week!
  • Think the defense needs some help. I believe Rodgers could have scored more points than the eagles. But over all Tolzien did a respectable job. How many points is Rodgers worth a week at least 14 my guess.
