OK, so here is the situation that Mike Holmgren finds himself in this week:
With only four days between now and the game against the Oakland Raiders, and his top three quarterbacks suffering some sort of injury, what does he do against the Raiders?
He certainly is not going to throw Matt Hasselbeck out there and risk having him injured just before the season opener in Buffalo. He does not yet know the severity of Charlie Frye’s knee injury, though Frye said his knee was sore. And while Seneca Wallace played tonight, Holmgren said he did not even plan on allowing Wallace to throw a pass until they found themselves down by a point with 2 1/2 minutes left.
A lot of course will depend on what they say on Tuesday about Frye’s injury and if that will restrict him. But it is an interesting question nonetheless: Who does Holmgren go with?
And before you say Dalton Bell, this was Holmgren’s response when he was asked about playing Seneca late: “We didn’t have any choice really. I wasn’t going to put Dalton Bell in against them.”
