Scott Tolzien Wants a Starting Job

Scott Tolzien

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?

    Scooter Tolzien, leader of the Los Angeles revival.

    I wonder if he learned that spin move from Eddie Lacy or Johnny Jolly?

    Man that spin was the highlight of his career.
    Hope he does get a starting job, it’ll make other teams clamor for our backups.

    Houston I legitimately think there at 23 so I don’t think a quarterback falls to them. Philly LA are 50 percent. Cleveland is a long shot. I see veterans minimum back with Green Bay if I had to put money on it.

    Without seeing Hundley in any real game action, i’m not sure he’s proven himself to be a capable NFL QB.

    Looking good in preseason games against mostly scrubs is hardly the body of work you’d like to see. Show me something against the ones, then you have something. But unless Rodgers, gets hurt, we won’t find out anytime soon.

    As far as Tolzien, i’d like to see him get a shot and see what he can do with that big arm, just not with the Packers because that means Rodgers got hurt.

    How did Nick Files get so bad (after that one great year)?

    Gonna miss seeing The Skooter holding the clip board….
    Niners may resign him – as insurance against the Chippy-Klapperdink Circus…
