Packers "very average" with back-up QB

November 12, 2013 - Burt Angeli
NFl Network analyst and Iron Mountain native Steve Mariucci says the Packers became “very average” with Seneca Wallace at quarterback.

"It's been tough for the Packers losing all those offensive weapons, now you lose the great quarterback," said Mariucci. "It hurts you exponentially, it really does. So they have become an average team all of a sudden. Very average.”

No word from “Mooch” on the Packers going with Scott Tolzien, according to Bob Wolfley of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

However, Wisconsin tight end Jacob Pedersen has confidence in Tolzien.

“He’ll definitely be great for the Packers,” said Pedersen, a former Menominee High School star and UW teammate of Tolzien. “He won’t sleep until he knows the playbook.”

Pedersen is profiled at Wisconsin assistant Jeff Genyk, impressed with Pedersen’s hand strikes, regards the senior (6-3, 240) as the “best blocker I’ve ever coached.”

“It’s almost like he’s a professional boxer or a jiu-jitsu master,” Genyk said. “His hands are so fast and powerful when he hits a defender. He really knocks them off balance.”
