    I think Tolzien showed some potential.

    Tolzien showed me more being thrown into a bad situation than Wallace. He has a strong arm. I think he has upside whereas Wallace has none.

    I'm not opposed to Tebow at this point. Nobody in/out of the league is Rodgers. At least he's led a team to the playoffs. Wallace is bad. Tolzien isn't going to go 2-1 against the Giants, Vikings and Lions.

    Tolzien. No question. He played like a man. He wasn't scared.

    On that note, MM just named Tolzien the starter for the Giants next week.

    As to the QB questions, Tolzien. No doubt.

    Lets hope Tolzien doesnt get hurt on the damn opening drive next week. A gust of Wind could render his services inoperable.

    Tolzien settled the backup QB question. He belongs. He ran the offense pretty effectively with almost zero preparation. He should play very well next week with full prep.

    Wallace was 5 for 5 when he got hurt.

    We`ve just got to hope the defense decide to try and prepare too ! Those that are fit of course.

    Tolzien reminded me of a younger Aaron Rodgers (even tho Rodgers is only 30;)) but with more work he'd be just fine, he'll learn not to force the ball, the second int was all on him the first not so much. Accuracy something to work one, three passes were a bit off. But we need the D to actually take a stand and do something.

    He had 3 passes batted which indicates that he's doing what young QBs do .... eyeballing their target. Common mistake of a young QB with little to no playing time

    Last time Packers had three starting quarter backs in one season, 1991.

    How can this be a discussion based solely on 3 passes by Wallace?

    We have no clue how he wold have done, but he did appear to throw good balls..

    I am pretty confident in saying he wouldnt have been so careless with the ball as Scott was

    He tossed 3 balls or more..I think he was 100% on his passes

    those were better than any ball he tossed Monday night..

    So explain why you dont want him?

    Tolzien is getting a pass because he's a Wisconsin guy. Not being a Badger fan, I don't have any bias toward Wisconsin players, so I don't see what's so great about him. The fact of the matter is, he led the team to only 13 points (though you could argue about missed FGs). He threw 2 picks and nearly threw a few more. And most of his completions were just great catches by the receivers.

    That being said, Wallace didn't inspire any confidence in me either. His reaction to a blitz is always run backwards 10 yards, then hope to scramble away. That only works in the Madden games, not in the actual NFL. His 5-for-5 was misleading because every pass was extremely short. He refuses to throw the ball more than 10 yards downfield.

    I would prefer the Packers try to sign some sort of free agent with some real experience. I guess Wallace counts, but he's done nothing but lose his whole career. The Packers won't do it, either because they're too stubborn or they have a good hunch that Rodgers' injury is going to be season-ending (in which case they figure the season is over anyway).
