Most disappointing Cleveland Browns quarterbacks: 12. Seneca Wallace (2010-2011)
Mike Holmgren once found success by adding one of his former backup quarterbacks when he was the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks. Matt Hasselbeck was behind Brett Favre with the Green Bay Packers when Holmgren was their coach and then, he brought Hasselbeck to Seattle with him.
The two ended up making a Super Bowl run and while they never won it all, there was a lot of success in Seattle with the two working together. Perhaps that’s why some Browns fans got a little excited when Holmgren was the president in Cleveland and added a former backup from his time in Seattle.
In 2010, Holmgren gave up a seventh-round pick for Seneca Wallace — a former fourth-round pick in 2003 under Holmgren. Wallace stepped in during the 2010 season when Jake Delhomme was injured. He started four games that year but wasn’t able to lead the team to much success.
Despite his numbers being decent, Wallace was 1-3 as the starter. He got another shot in 2011 after signing a three-year deal but saw a huge decline in his performance. His completion percentage went from 63.4 in 2010 to 51.4 in 2011 and the team was 0-3 with him starting.
Wallace was released after that campaign, finishing as another failed experiment under center for the Browns.
