Scott Tolzien has had enough of this being a backup B.S.
Scooter wants a starting job.
“I know there’s been a lot of backups in Green Bay that have gone on and been given the chance to start in other places,” Tolzien said. “We’ll see what happens, but that would be great if it happened.”
Tolzien will have a shot at making that happen, as he’ll be a free agent this offseason. With 2015 fifth-round pick Brett Hundley waiting in the wings (and looking more than capable), the Green Bay Packers may not even consider re-signing Tolzien.
The real question is whether another team is willing to give Scoots McGoots a shot at being a No. 1.
While he looked great during the 2015 preseason, Tolzien didn’t get any meaningful game action during the regular season. When he did — back in 2013 — he was pretty erratic, throwing for 717 yards, one touchdown and five interceptions in three games.
That doesn’t automatically disqualify him from getting a shot at a top spot, though.
Tolzien has shown considerable improvement since he’s been in the Packers’ system. There are also some really bad starting quarterbacks out there, right now.
Houston and Los Angeles come immediately to mind.
We’d lay down a wager on Scotts in a three-way between him, dopey-ass Nick Foles and Case Keenum.
I mean, can any of those clowns do this?
