Packers Periscope: Week 11 vs Philadelphia Eagles

The Past: The last meeting between the Packers and Eagles did not end well for the Packers; with Aaron Rodgers officially out for the first of 8 weeks with a broken collarbone, the Packers then proceeded to lose backup Seneca Wallace and were forced to throw in Scott Tolzein, their 3rd string developmental quarterback.  While Tolzein did some good things including a touchdown and...

49ers Pre-Training Projected 53 Man Roster and Depth Chart

Quarterback #462448349 / Colin Kaepernick Seneca Wallace Blaine Gabbert Seneca Wallace should be added to the roster as a dependable back-up, who can run and throw the football.

3 Free Agent Quarterbacks the 49ers Could Still Target as a Back-Up

#459736011 / The 49ers are coming into OTA’s with Josh Johnson and Blaine Gabbert backing up Colin Kaepernick.  While I do think Gabbert has reason to be on the roster, I do not think he is any more than a developmental guy, much like any rookie a team would bring in would be. Most developmental guys that teams bring in, usually sit behind the starter and the...

Why Haven’t The Packers Resigned Matt Flynn?

In case anyone forgot, the 2013 Packers will always be remembered as the “oh ****, Aaron Rodgers got hurt” season.  After Rodgers broke his clavicle against the Bears, it became quite apparent that the Packers front office had been unusually caught with its collective pants off by having no viable backup to keep the team afloat.  This all started in training camp and the preseason...

Packers: In Like Flynn

Last offseason the Packers went into training camp with Aaron Rodgers, Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman as the quarterbacks. Halfway through training camp they cut B.J. Coleman and brought in the former Texas University star, Vince Young. Many thought that Vince Young would head into the season as the backup quarterback. Thompson decided to cut both Young and Harrell in bring in veteran...

49ers might want to consider these FAs to back up Kap

In less than two full seasons as a starter, Colin Kaepernick has established himself as a franchise quarterback. The 49ers will no doubt treat him like one in the coming months by offering a lucrative contract extension. And just like that, the team will be set at quarterback for years to come. But what about Kap’s backups? The 49ers Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien before the...

Moves Green Bay should make at QB via free agency

When Aaron Rodgers went down the Packers were faced with a situation they simply weren’t prepared for. When their back up, Seneca Wallace went down, it got worse. Scott Tolzien came in and did an admirable job, but simply wasn’t prepared to be a starter in the NFL. Ted Thompson, Mark Murphy, and Mike McCarthy will surely have insurance policies in place in way of a legitimate...

Comparing the 2013 Broncos to the 2014 Packers

Wesley Hitt/Getty Images John Miceli Founder I believe that the 2014 Packers could replicate the 2013 Broncos.  The Broncos had an outstanding season this season, while the Packers slid into a playoff spot in the NFC North, and got eliminated by the San Francisco 49ers in the first round. Keep in mind though, the Packers did not have Aaron Rodgers in 8 games this season, and he...

Should the Packers draft a QB?

This season we saw how unprepared the Packers really were for an Aaron Rodgers injury. It was a back up quarterback carousel that saw Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzien come in and fail before finally landing on Matt Flynn. It showed us just how important it is to have that contingency plan in place. So, with a hot crop of quarterbacks coming into the league this year, are any of them...

Packer Nation should be hopeful for 2014

The 2013 season for the Green Bay Packers wasn’t a model many teams would want to follow. Although they won their division, earned a home playoff game and likely have the rookie of the year on their team, the Packers greatly underachieved expectations. Blame it on injuries if you must, most notably to the man at the helm, Aaron Rodgers, or blame it on poor coaching, poor officiating...

He knows all too well about the struggles I’ve gone through being a Bills fan as I inundate...
