Examining the Green Bay Packers' roster:

Quarterbacks (3)

Aaron Rodgers
Matt Flynn
Scott Tolzien

If the Packers are leaning toward keeping only two quarterbacks, then Tolzien might be their guy behind Rodgers. He outplayed Flynn in Saturday's preseason opener at Tennessee. He has the better arm of the two backups, and that was apparent in the torrential rain that fell throughout the game. However, if they dumped Flynn, they would be getting rid of a quarterback that has proven he can win games as a backup in Green Bay.


Disagree with Janis for #5 WR. Guy has done absolutely done nothing in TC due to being out. Meanwhile, Dorsey has gotten reps on ST and we've seen him and Gillett play last Saturday.

Agree with 6 dlineman. Neal looks way too small to log any extensive work on the dline. I hate falling into the "he needs to be X weight" stuff but he doesn't look like he'd last long.

And while we're at it, can we give Bradford reps at ILB?

I wonder if Rob is going to flip flop every week after a preseason game has been played. I doubt 1 bad preseason game carries any more weight than a bad preseason practice.

Like it or not they will start the season with 3 QBs after getting burnt so badly last year with parade of QB they had. The only way they will drop to 2 is if and when they feel that they would be able to pull someone up from the PS and still be competitive.

I do get a kick out Rob having 4 DL last time explaining that both Neal and Peppers count as both OLB and DE. This week he bumps the DL up to 6.

He promoted Janis based on practice performances.

He had 5 DL last time, just added Pennel this time.

You are right. I was sure he only had 4 DL. It is no big deal if Janis or Banjo or Barrington get moved on to the list or off of it next week. None of this counts and only serves to kill time while we wait for the real list to come out on Aug 30th and even then it will be subject to change over the next few days.

Exactly - the guys he's shifting from week to week are guys that probably won't be on the active 46 much of the season anyway...well, at least not until the inevitable 12 hamstring/ACL IRs pop up.

True about injuries having an effect. The fact is, the Packers have a lot of talent - too much to fit into 53 spots. The WR package is still up for grabs after the top 3, maybe top 2. I think we keep six. Same thing with TE - I think we find a way to keep at least five. I second the motion to give Bradford a try at ILB - I'm not satisfied with anybody currently playing the position. I also recognize the dilemma with Neal (the one on D). I really doubt he has a future at OLB, and he's either too small or too slow - depending on whether he is down or up in weight/playing D Line or OLB. I think it's gonna take an injury along the way to somebody else to keep him. I'd really like to see Tolzien kept and Flynn cut, but I concur, it ain't likely after the mess last year. Keeping an extra RB - the other Neal or Perkins - probably can't happen if we keep 3 QBs.

I third the motion on Bradford. There was a lot of chatter about that on draft day, but they seem to want him outside.

As for Neal, he seems like Kampman in this defense, sort of a square peg in a round hole.

I don't know about keeping 5 TE this year. Unless they start making plays, I wouldnt waste the roster spots.

They have 3 QBs every year. Rodgers, a backup and one on the PS. Probably be the same this year.

If Rodgers gets hurt, they put in Flynn and move the PS player to the game day roster and start looking for a scrap heap QB. If Flynn goes down, you put in the PS player until you get the scrap heap player up to speed.

Last year wasn't a disaster. It was the way they planned to deal with injuries. No team is going to win a lot of games if they are down to their 3rd QB. It would be an over reaction to change what they do. You can't keep 3 starting quality QBs on a team.

I'm almost certain flynn isn't eligible for the p.s.
And I think tolzien's eligibility is close to maxed as well. Also, dangling relatively established qbs on a practice squad is risky. I don't know that tolzien would last a season there w/o being picked up.
