    There will always be injuries.
    Even golfers suffer injuries and I don't think injuries are an issue easily sorted out.
    What you can do is stock better players to step in as needed.
    Going into the season without a legitimate back up QB was inexcusable.

    I hear what you are saying, but it is a thin line between unlucky and just almost cursed. The amount of injuries THIS organisation is beyond unlucky, and something needs to looked at urgently before we can ONLY field third string players in every game left. Purely my opinion of course, but this getting beyond a joke now.

    Three knee injuries yesterday, two groin injuries, and two re-injuries (foot and hamstring for Perry and Heyward). I still don't know how all the screeching monkeys think that the training staff can prevent an in-game knee injury. Groins are preventable to a degree as much as any injury - part precaution and part luck. The two re-injuries are probably on the fans and coaches, putting pressure on the players and training staff to get these guys back in the lineup. Now they are likely out for even longer stretches.

    I think that firing everyone involved is a great move. That's usually what makes things work better....

    We need a backup QB for sure. Let's see what this kid has. Maybe he will show us he's the guy.

    I agree, he showed confidence and skill, along with rookie mental mistakes. Having said that, how did a perrenial playoff contender, get put into a position where we have to say "lets see what this kid has" about our QB or any skill position?

    I think he already did. Now let see what he can do when he actually practices with the team.

    I was impressed with the kid. He missed a wide open Jordy and then the God awful int. But he looked like a QB. Seems to have a strong arm unlike Wallace. Arguably, he did better with no reps than Seneca did.

    IMO if the Packers decide to sign Flynn they'll release Wallace

    Well there's the injury thing with Wallace but I won't be disappointed.

    They could agree to pay for his rehabilitation for his pulled groin

    Well they have names with the first initial of the first and last name. BOTH contributed to this disaster. In 2010 we had SO many injuries that every original defensive starter missed a game, 10 out of eleven due to injuries. (Hawk basically was benched I believe it was for the Philly game). This year we don't have as many injuries, we also don't have the experience or depth which I put on both Coach and GM for these issues.

    It's not all lollipops gumdrops and rainbows with Ted and Mike, and I'm starting to notice that a few Packer fans (of the smarter variety) are realizing this as well.

    What's to argue here? HE DID better with no prep work!

    NYGs will be a bit tougher but w/a weeks worth of practice will help for sure

    Yeah, but he still lost us the game.

    You all can be impressed with him all you want to by looking at his stats, his form, whatever.
    But if those things don't win games, then why bother?
    Nothing else matters but the win.

    Wallace lost to the Bears by 7.
    Tolzien lost to the Eagles by 14.

    Going by those numbers one could say that Wallace did better.
    However I don't think one did better than the other since both lost.
    This is like arguing over who has the better Ford Pinto.

    So why bother then? This was the guys pro debut. He did better than Wallace who's been in the league for 10 years

    Different teams, Crosby missed two and defense played worse.

    Wallace vs Bears 11-19 114 yards no TD's and 1 int.
    Tolizen vs Eagles 24-39 for 280 yards a TD and 1 Int.

    I've seen teams win with far worse #'s than Tolizen had. But a better defense would have benefited both.

    He didn't lose anything. Defense that didn't make stops sure didn't help anybody, including a guy who probably still needed directions to Lambeau. And Crosby missing those kicks put us in a bad spot too.
