I don't disagree with you about Coleman, just not yet. As for Harrell, much worse QBs than him have started in the NFL, and I don't mean just a game or two. A guy named Dilfer comes to mind. MAYBE he is a career backup, but you say it like it's gospel.

You guys don't get it.

Harrell is the long-term backup. Coleman is the one we develop and trade for a 2 or 3.


That would be interesting... but do you really see Mike McCarthy keeping 3 QBs on the main roster?

I think it's possible but very doubtful about it happening.

I may be wrong, but I don't think Harrell is able to be put on the PS this year.


That alone will keep him #2, Coleman will be put back on the PS.

Now if another team shows interest in Coleman and it gets to the point where they make him an offer, Ted might be forced to make a decision whether to keep Harrell, or Coleman.

I agree, don't see 3qb's on final 53 man roster.

There'll be an open competition for the #2 quarterback, and I think Coleman has a shot because of the strength of his arm. Noodle armed quarterbacks can only lead stacked teams to wins, not the other way around. So maybe it will come down to Harrell having a cerebral thing for Mike McCarthy choice in backup. The best thing to do is showcase one of them in preseason and hope to sucker some team into giving up a pick in next year's draft.

Emergency quarterbacks can be brought out of retirement, but if Rodgers goes down, our season is FUBAR anyway so why the concern about backups?

I agree that Coleman probably needs one more year under Mike before we can trade him and get some good value.

However, this IS a stacked team. With these new RBs, we don't NEED a guy who can throw deep all the time. I've actually made the case that a shorter, higher percentage offense might even (believe it or now) be better.

Not saying Harrell is better than Rodgers. It's just that it would force Mike to adhere to fundamentals.

But yes, Harrell's less likely to be picked up than Coleman if released. It seemed to me last preseason that they kind of hid Coleman from public view so other teams wouldn't have film on him.

I'm guessing Coleman will be the Packers #2 QB or be on another team ether via claiming him on waivers or that other team contacting the Packers to trade a later round pick for him like the Jets did with OG Caleb Schlauderaff

He could beat out Arodge.

Heck you might even be able to beat out, Arodge (who ever that is)....

Anyways it will be interesting to see who wins the back-up QB behind RODGERS... as well as all of the other battles including RT, RB, S, CB, ILB, DL and maybe lots more...

To be somewhat fair...whenever Harrell has played in the preseason, the OLine in front of him has been awful. He has literally had no time to throw. And the talent around him hasn't been the best either. But hey, that's the life of a backup QB in preseason I guess. I'm not saying he would be any good, but I wouldn't mind seeing him play with the first stringers in a game this preseason.

He'll have some depth with which to work this year.

In fact, this could very well be the best TC ever! I'm excited about it.

uffda udfa (4h) : Just rewatched Cobbs hail mary catch in slo mo...he should've been flagged for OPI. Got away with one.
uffda udfa (6h) : Nope. I like Gus.
beast (6h) : Did you want Anthony Lynn as HC? Cushion Bradley was going to follow Lynn where ever.
uffda udfa (7h) : Gus Bradley is new DC in SD/LA. I would've loved to had him here in Green Bay.
uffda udfa (11h) : It's just fine.
musccy (12h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (12h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (13h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (13h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (13h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (14h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (14h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (14h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (18h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (18h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (18h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (18h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (19h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (20h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (20h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (20h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (21h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (21h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (22h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (22h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (23h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (23h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (23h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (23h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (23h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (23h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (23h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
