Seneca Wallace wants to start

Seneca Wallace has been in the NFL for eight years now. Most of those eight years have been spent in a backup role (first with the Seahawks, and more recently with the Browns).

Wallace is now a free agent. "If I do go back (to Cleveland),” he says, “hopefully it's a chance to compete for the starting position.” Yes, hopefully. But not likely.

Wallace recently spoke with Mike Wilkening of Pro Football Weekly and pointed out that he’s familiar with the West Coast system that new head coach Pat Shurmur runs.

Familiarity with the system does not equate to starting talent, though. Wallace’s athleticism and experience make him one of the most attractive backups in the game, but a backup nevertheless. The greatest hindrance to his starting potential is the fact that he has never exhibited great rhythm or consistent decision-making as a pocket passer.

This was noticeable when Wallace filled in for the injured Jake Delhomme early last season, though Wallace told Wilkening that the Browns “lacked a clear identity of what we did” and “had no foundation in the offense."

Wallace is certainly worth re-signing, as long as he understands that Colt McCoy comes ahead of him in the pecking order.

I want to be a starting QB too, but I can't.  Why?  I'm not good enough, and neither is Seneca.  I'm a Browns fan, and saw enough of him last year to know why he's a career backup.  Nice player, good teammate, NOT a starting QB.

Wallace is better than %60 of the starting NFL qbs.  Case in point.  Tebow, mccoy, hasselbeck, orton, rivers, smith and that Bears bum (don't want to even mention is name) Give Wallace a real shot and not a temporary, "if you make a mistake I am pulling you out shot"  But a real shot where the coaches stick with him through ups and downs.

I don't think he is starting material! In my opinion he is a backup quarterback!

I had to comment when I saw the header on the side. While Seneca is quite the serviceable backup QB, he is not what you want starting on your team. But then again, Arizona and a few other teams were having nightmare seasons at the position. They, however, are starting mostly young talent to see what they have. We know what Wallace can do after 8 years. Find some consistency and obviously a better starter than Derek Anderson!
