Ya, that loyalty to Aaron lasted about 30 minutes... Justin Harrell gets a lot of ribbing, especially from me. It is just that... ribbing. I'll bet you dollars to donuts when Bustin gets his ass on the field and stays healthy for more than a few weeks we will all be collectively impressed with that young man. He could easily become a mainstay in the D-line, and dhazer, I know you read what Bruce threw up stats-wise on Bustin for last year when he was in there (over in PC world). Guess what I REALLY think about Bustin Harrell? I think Ted Thompson made a hell of a good pick, and if I am right, I'll cut a deal with all the Ted Thompson bashers, if I'm right, you will at least recognize that Ted Thompson knows what he's doing, and if you are right, I'll STFU about how great Ted Thompson is. That's right, I'm putting my "put up or shut up" dead-square on the shoulders of Justin the bustin Harrell, or more accurately put, our next force to be reckoned with on the D-line. Aaron Rodgers has exceeded my very lofty expectations of him and just about everyone, especially in light of the crap he had to endure. That young man has got the future of the Green Bay Packers written all over him, and if that can't be seen by some, I have no friggin' clue what they are looking at.

...And since I mentioned 20/20 hindsight, anyone that wants a really good laugh should take a moment to revisit the websites as pertains to the 2005 draft... you know, the one where Alex Smith was taken first and Aaron sat on his keester until the 24th pick. Now tell all of us about how dumb Ted Thompson is. I guess I can also give a nice shoutout to Brett Favre for vacillating enough that year to make the pick viable in BrettFavre is God world... just barely. Kindly make sure to put that pick in your calculations when you start bashing on Ted.

I came straight to page 6 hoping to miss any negative crap but....
All I know is I'm happy for Aaron and the route this organization is going.
We're better signing him now then having to pay way more once he wins his first MVP in a year or 2.

I looked at that draft and thought we should have taken jason campbell but oh well. All praise Ted Thompson and Rodgers they are the best that have ever been in football. Hey that crystal ball you guys use really works Rodgers wins 5 superbowl mvps and Ted Thompson becomes president of the usa lol. btw i would have taken frank gore brandon jackson marion barber and even kyle orton instead of nick collins and terrance murphy. oh well we are planning for the future like we have been since Ted Thompson took over. Just hope i'm still alive when the future turns into the present.

Dh you have a point about waiting to give him the money but it can also backfire on you. Remember Jerry Jones was reluctant to give Romo a new contract and with each game of throwing another 3 td's Romo was just counting up the $$$$$

I think this is a good move, waiting for him to play out his contract and go into FA.... If he continues to play at the level he is playing, you're talking CRAZY money just to keep him around. That would be a very bad move. Nothing is for sure in this league, aside from favre starting, and throwing ints. =) So arguing that he hasn't proved himself enough isnt entirely relevant, many players prove themselfs, sign huge contracts and drop off the face of the earth, or get hurt and are never the same player and need to be cut. You dont hold back from making a deal because of the worst case sceniero.

I'm very glad they signed him. One of the biggest reasons that I was against the whole trading Brett thing was because I was scared that it would be a big waste if Rodgers left in FA. But that shores up that, so that is really good news.

Obviously its a risk but given the cap space situation, I don't think it is that much of a hit overall even if he does go down to injury or starts fading (which he has not shown any sign of).

I'm just glad my nightmare scenerio will not happen.

It's good to know that there are some "pro-Brett" fans out there who are not "anti-Rodgers." At times it has seemed like everyone was either on one side or the other.


That has probably been my #1 fear with all the Favre/Rodgers saga. If he bolted and we would basically have told a HOF to beat it for nothing. But now that this is addressed, I think its huge.

It's a risk but there is obviously a high reward as well.

Aaron really showed me something during that Indy game, I could see him maturing into what Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy have seen in him. My whole issue with the Favre/Rodgers saga was the thing with if Rodgers bolted and the way Favre was treated. Other than that, if you go back to my posts, I guess they would be on the "other site". I always said its Ted Thompson and MM's decision, I hope I'm wrong and they are right.

Makes sense that this would happen. I don't get the this will be the undoing of Ted Thompson.

Thompson is tied to Rodgers know matter what. Regardless of a new contract, Thompson was going to be tied to Rodgers. If Rodgers is the next great QB in Packer history, Thompson will go down as the next great Packer GM. It's common sense. I've been saying it for years now. They've seen enough of Rodgers to know whether or not he's worth it. I think based on his play so far,. he is, but to think that this deal is his undoing makes little sense.

If Rodgers struggles, Thompson's undoing would be the selection of Aaron Rodgers in the first place. Not the contract. This was Thompson resigning the guy his career and legacy is tied too. This makes sense from his point of view.

Personally, I think this was the right move to make for the team too.

Jennings should be next.

Andrew Brandts thoughts on the contract

those that dont know..andrew was the cap guru in Gb for YEARS..

He KNOWS more then we EVER will....

But it "appears" lot of people here are dead wrong about Aaron Rodgers

http://www.nationalfootb.../monday-money-matters-9/

Quote:
As stated in this space often, the Packers have been bullish on Aaron Rodgers for a quite a while. This weekends dramatic extension of his contract, an extension worth close to 64M over the next six and one-half seasons with an even 20M guaranteed, is proof positive of that built-up confidence.



This extension was not about the only seven games that he started prior to signing it, games in which Aaron proved his readiness to be a top caliber quarterback and play through pain and injury to his shoulder. The Packers have been convinced about Aaron for the past three years.

During those years in Green Bay, perhaps the most asked question I received was Is Aaron Rodgers really going to be a solid heir to Brett Favre? The answer from all of us was always a resounding, Yes, he is.

As I have stated before, he has a big arm, uncanny intelligence, natural leadership skills and an ability to not take things too seriously, which has served him well this year.

He reminds me a lot of a former client and another former Favre backup, Matt Hasselbeck (a player that should be considered for MVP this year in light of how the Seahawks are doing without him).

Aaron prepared himself to be the starter for the Packers since 2006. Aaron endeared himself to his teammates and the front office with his meticulous preparation during the long winters of Green Bay.

Now he has been paid, and paid well. The Tony Romo and David Garrard deals were obvious guides to his compensation. A more important reference may have been future deals for players such as Eli Manning and Philip Rivers, deals that will be much bigger than this.

The Packers knew that whatever they paid now, unless there was a dramatic injury to come, they would be paying a lot more later. With the scarcity of quality quarterbacks to even come close to hitting the market, even waiting until the end of this season and Aaron having a full year left on his contract would have cost the Packers millions in total and guarantees.

Should Aaron have received this deal this early into his playing career? The same question could have been asked about the following quarterbacks before him: Rob Johnson with the Bills, Matt Schaub with the Texans, Tony Romo and David Garrard. The feeling from the teams was the same throughout this is our guy and the market will only go up.

The trend of deals being done earlier and earlier into a players career is a trend in all sports now. In baseball, the Rays extended Evan Longoria a week into his major league career! Though not as early, similar proactivity was exercised by the Rockies and Brewers, respectively, for Troy Tulewitski and Ryan Braun. And news this week that the Lakers have extended Andrew Bynum, their young center that hardly played last year, for the tune of 58M over four years! Again, the theme for all these teams was and is the same: it will only cost us more to wait.

Congrats to Aaron, a good friend over the last three years. My sense is he will be worth this deal and more.

I am very happy we signed Aaron to an extension. I can't see why some people still doubt his abilities. I tried reading every page but I saw someone continually say he is a 4-3 quarterback.

You have no idea about the sport of football my friend. Pop open a book on the sport of football and read it sometime. There is and never will be such a thing as a 4-3 quarterback, wide receiver, running back, tight end, etc etc....Football is a team sport. Aaron Rodgers plays for the 4-3 Green Bay Packers. The Packers have 3 losses because the team lost them...not Rodgers.

I am all ready and pumped for the Rodgers era...may it be a long and glorious era.
