Last week the deficiencies of Seneca Wallace displayed themselves. An average arm which makes him vulnerable to most throws. The Eagles come to Lambeau flying high after erupting for 49 points last week. Even with the return of Clay Matthews, the Packers will not have an answer for LeSean McCoy, will get behind early and with a backup quarterback starting, that’s not a good equation.

The Packers come into this game having lost their best player, something that would be difficult for any team to overcome. Seneca Wallace will be better this week with a week of preparation under his belt, and they will be able to run the ball against a leaky Eagles defense. Unfortunately, at some point the game comes down to the quarterback being able to make plays within the pocket, and at this point I have more faith in Nick Foles to do that than I do Wallace. Eagles win a tight battle, that would drop the Packers to 5-4.

It’s a shame that Aaron Rodgers will not be able to play against the Eagles-it would have been fun to see him face off against an Eagles defense which ranks dead last in the NFL in pass defense (308 passing YPG). While he sits and recovers from his broken collarbone, Seneca Wallace will barely challenge the Eagles porous pass defense, choosing to had the ball off to Eddie Lacy-a lot. There will be a few short passes for good measure, hoping the receivers can run after the catch to gain YAC. On defense, the Packers MUST stop LeSean McCoy. Failure to do this, and they will struggle. One thing that will happen this week-Nick Foles will not throw for 7 touchdowns again. It will be close, and both teams will put up points. The Packers will put up just a few more.

I want to pick the Packers, I do. I want to believe that Coach Mac and Coach Capers are going to get this team ready to play without their leader, but I just can’t. James Jones isn’t 100%. Randall Cobb isn’t playing. Jermichael Finley isn’t playing. Clay Matthews is wearing a club. The line between winning and losing is very close in the NFL and the Packers are stepping all over it. Aaron Rodgers was the great eraser of problems, injuries, and coverages and while I’m not panicking, I don’t think that this team is quite ready to get a win without him

Packers backup quarterback Seneca Wallace had a rough night against the Bears on Monday night, and to add insult to injury, he’s now being compared to Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite. We aint mad, hey.

Aaron Rodgers understudy, Seneca Wallace had anything but his job cut out for him when he had to take over for the injured elite quarterback. He struggled a majority of the game, while Green Bay’s running game kept them in it, but the Pack fell short by a touchdown possibly due to Seneca’s throwing form mimicing that of another quarterback who also fell short in his high school...
Green Bay quarterback Seneca Wallace exited in the first quarter after suffering a groin injury Sunday against the Eagles.Fantasy Spin:His return is questionable. Scott Tolzien is now in at quarterback for the injury-plagued Packers.
Seneca Wallace has left Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles with a groin injury.
The Packers are already without Aaron Rodgers who suffered a fractured collarbone in Monday’s loss to the Chicago Bears.
UPDATE: Seneca Wallace has a groin injury and his return is questionable. Scott Tolzien is in at QB.

Scott Tolzien threw for 280 yards in relief of Seneca Wallace in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Eagles. Tolzien will be the team's third starter in three weeks after using three in 22-plus years.
Packers quarterback Seneca Wallace left Sunday's game with the Philadelphia Eagles with a groin injury, and his return was questionable.
That left Green Bay with Scott Tolzien at quarterback with Aaron Rodgers already out with a left collarbone injury.
Wallace, like Rodgers in last week's loss to the Bears, left after the first series. He appeared to get hurt after being...
Things are dire for the Packers now.
Seneca Wallace has a groin injury and is questionable to return. Scott Tolzien in at QB for the Packers.

Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Matt Flynn will work out for the team Monday, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Flynn, who was released by the Buffalo Bills last week, will have a chance to show the Packers that his injured elbow is not an issue and that he can lead the team while starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers recovers from a broken collarbone. Mike McCarthy did announce...
The Green Bay Packers have had a little trouble keeping quarterbacks healthy lately with Seneca Wallace going down Sunday against the Eagles. Scott Tolzien finished the game, and while he didn't exactly suck the Packers didn't look too hot against a mediocre Philadelphia team.
Matt Flynn is expected to be resigned, but who knows what limits the team was willing to go...

Everything about this game screams trap game for the Eagles. Seneca Wallace starting. Playing in Green Bay. Clay Matthews returning.
Yet, I can’t look away from the Eagles. I think the Birds win a close game behind the arm of Nick Foles.
Eagles win, 28-24
I was pumped when it turned out the Eagles wouldn’t have to face Aaron Rodgers. For some reason...
Philadelphia Eagles (4-5) at Green Bay Packers (5-3)
Trends wise, the Eagles have the advantage here. The Packers will probably be non-divisional road favorites in New York last week and face the Giants and they are non-divisional home favorites this week. Teams are 61-85 ATS in that spot since 2002. Meanwhile, the Eagles are non-divisional road dogs before being divisional home...

The Green Bay Packers are going through quarterbacks like toilet paper right now, starting three QBs in three weeks. Aaron Rodgers, Seneca Wallace, Scott Tolzien … the week after that they’re starting Favre, and then Tebow wearing a Favre jersey, and maybe in the last game of the season they’ll cart out a football-playing donkey. It’s bad.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy already has made the decision on who will start next Sunday, and his name is Scott Tolzien. You'll recall, of course, that Tolzien was still on the team's practice squad last week.
He replaces Seneca Wallace, who replaced the injured Aaron Rodgers on Sunday but who injured his groin in the first half of Green Bay's loss to the Eagles.
Today’s Eagles-Packers game features an Aaron Rodgers-less Green Bay squad facing off against a Birds team coming off a soaring win in Oakland and a historic performance by Nick Foles. Will the Eagles offense be able to replicate their most exciting performance since the season opener today at Lambeau Field? How will the presence of at quarterback Seneca Wallace impact Philadelphia’s...
