Seneca Wallace doesn’t last long with 49ers

Jim Harbaugh, Seneca Wallace AP

When you look back on the Seneca Wallace era with the 49ers, you better not blink.

According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, the 49ers intend to cut the just-acquired quarterback, and won’t play him in tonight’s preseason finale.

Wallace was brought in, ostensibly to compete for the backup job. But then, in a startling coincidence, Colt McCoy agreed to take a pay cut, and suddenly made the backup job his own.

Without Wallace, that leaves rookie B.J. Daniels as their third at the moment, and likely he’ll get plenty of snaps tonight.

    He’ll be okay now that he’s out of the NFL, after all – he’s got that Iowa State education to fall back on and…. HAHAHAHAHAHA oh I’m sorry I just couldn’t keep a straight face…

    So basically, they just used him as leverage to get Colt McCoy to take a pay cut. Pretty classy jerking someone around like that.

    Haha the Whiners just cut the best QB they had on the roster.

    Seneca Wallace gets beat out by Colt McCoy again!! This time on an NFC squad. That’s gotta suck.

    Get the story correct at least.

    He didnt show up this morning for the QB meeting, and didnt show up for (missed) the plane to SD for the game. So YES, I would cut him too.

    I never thought that Seneca Wallace got a fair shot at QB in the NFL. I have seen him perform admirably. He throws on a rope and can be very accurate. He has never been given a chance with a real OL or real receivers. Too bad! A very talented young man.
