    Q. Do you step on cracks on game day?
    A. No. I've never stepped on a crack

    I can't imagine more packaged answers to questions. After 8 years of interviews, does anyone put any stock in the responses from TT or for that matter any GM/HC/DC?

    I was a little surprised by the "jinx" comment, but I understand his point about not picking back-ups based on the fear you may lose your starter to injury. TT swings and misses on occasion. All GM's do, but the good ones trust their instincts and don't panic when a player doesn't work out.

    Q. When you're playing with that No. 2 QB spot on a playoff-caliber team, are you looking at it through the prism of 'can we win a Super Bowl with this guy' or 'can we win a game with this guy?'
    A. I think there are both kinds. There are a few of them that are backups that are available in the offseason that you look at and you think, 'This guy could lead us to the Super Bowl.' There's 32 starters (in the NFL). Say he's the 33rd guy – is he going to be able to win you the Super Bowl? I'm not so sure.

    I'm not looking at Seneca Wallace as a QB that can lead us to a Super Bowl. I don't know of too many back-up QB's that could lead their team to a SB. He just needs to utilize the talent around him and help the team win 2-3 games in Rodgers absence.
