If Rodgers were in uniform, one executive in personnel said he’d call it, 42-35, for the Packers. Without Rodgers, he’s calling it, 35-17, for the Eagles.
“Seneca Wallace is horrible and the Green Bay defense has zero pass rush,” the scout said Wednesday. “This is a complete disaster for the Green Bay defense to have to face without a quarterback.
“The Eagles probably will put up 400 yards passing. This guy (coach Chip Kelly) is an aggressive play-caller. They are fabulous on the road and they have no injuries, to speak of.
“This will be a major victory for the Eagles to get right back in the NFC East race.”
The Eagles, 4-1 on the road in their 4-5 start, blitz heavily and could attack Wallace, who will be making his first start since January 2012.
Yes, that should make you feel good. Everyone is afraid of Lambeau. But you know who else is afraid of Lambeau? Seneca Wallace. It’s without a doubt more intimidating for the backup quarterback trying to fill a star’s shoes in front of the home crowd than it is for the opposing team that has actually been pretty good on the road.
But did anyone else notice this? They are fabulous on the road and they have no injuries, to speak of. Somewhere, Michael, and perhaps Marcus, Vick are making sads.
*Why does his name sound like a medical procedure that would involve putting something up your butt to relieve constipation? “I’m sorry, sir, but we’re gonna have to do a Seneca Wallace. It shouldn’t hurt, much.”
