Seneca Wallace Green Bay Packers 2013 Evaluation and Report Card

1) Introduction: Brought in to be the necessary Band-Aid if Aaron Rodgers were to go down, Seneca Wallace proved that his skills are vastly diminished without the benefit of quick, scampering legs. His decision was marginal, arm strength OK. During his first start for the Packers in Week 10, Wallace suffered a season-ending groin injury.

Career stats and more

3) Expectations coming into the season:  Moderate. Since he knew that he would only be seeing the field if Aaron Rodgers got hurt, his role wasn’t expected to be that important — especially because Rodgers had only missed two games as a starter coming into this season.

4) Player’s highlights/low-lights: Not too much to go on because he got hurt on his first in his first start of the season. Looked overmatched when he was brought in against the Bears after Aaron Rodgers went down with his season-ending collarbone injury.

5) Player’s contribution to the overall team success: Marginal. He basically thew away an excellent 150-yard rushing performance by Eddie Lacy in a 27-20 loss to the Bears at Green Bay because he was sacked four times and threw an interception.

6) Player’s contributions in the playoffs: Injured.
