During this wild mad dash for the ball, one thought crossed Scott Tolzien's mind.

"It was a bad feeling when your arm goes forward and it gets really light," Tolzien said. "But at that point, you literally see the ball laying on the ground and your life flashes before your eyes to get that thing back.”

Even during his one gaffe in this monsoon at LP Field, Tolzien recovered.

In Green Bay's 20-16 loss to the Tennessee Titans, the ball slipped out of Tolzien's hand one throw, yet he somehow held back 260-pound Brandon Copeland to recover the ball. Saturday was Tolzien's first game in Green Bay since getting a full off-season within the offense, and he was sharp. Taking over for Matt Flynn the final drive of the first half, Tolzien completed 8 of 12 passes for 124 yards and a 100.7 passer rating.

He didn't get a ton of help, either, with Andrew Quarless dropping one deep ball downfield and Chris Harper dropping one fourth-and-2 and another two-point conversion.

Through the rain, Tolzien remained effective.

“There’s a balance between being extra-conscious and also not being timid,” Tolzien said. “You really have to focus on it but you can’t over-focus on it. Then, you’re going to be worried on the little things, rather than your game plan.”

Arguably no position is tougher to play in these conditions, yet Tolzien was able to drive the ball downfield. As receiver Myles White noted, the quarterback didn't retreat to checkdowns.
