Ok. So as long as we get a monster at DE or LB or S, we will make the playoffs with Harrell at QB for 16 games?

Every team needs new players and depth. The Super Bowl champs in Baltimore currently have major issues at LT, MLB (2), WR and Safety. Everyone has needs. Packers are no different in that regard.

The point is that I personally have no faith in this team making the playoffs if Aaron Rodgers goes down for any serious time. Any other player can go down and I think we can survive. It was proven this year. But Harrell has no experience and, so, we have no evidence to suggest that we have an adequate backup.

We are not like everyone else. Things worked out ok for 49ers with their 'backup'. Seattle has experience. Washington looks like it did well last year with both rookie QB's. Atlanta has experience. Many teams have a veteran (castoff) at backup QB. We have novices.

Favre and Rodgers have spoiled us. I don't think we place enough value on a backup QB in today's NFL, because, frankly, the backup in Green Bay has not been relied on in 20 years. Our time is coming.


I like your passion QC. Keep it up. ThumpUp that said you are nuts. [grin1]

I think it is safe to say if Aaron Rodgers goes down for the full year GB will struggle. It doesn't matter what you do they will struggle. A couple of years ago, 2010, we had a thread where we listed the top 10 players on GB that the Packers would miss if they were injured. I put Aaron down 10 times. To paraphrase Denzel Washington as Coach Herman Boone, "You can't replace an Aaron Rodgers".

You put "backup in quotes for SF. You know that Kaepernick is the real starting qb not Smith. He is most gone. Going to KC. 1. Do you think Smith would have gotten them to the SB? I don't. Their defense may have with Smith riding along as the QB but he would not have don it. (Think 85 Bears. Mc Muffin was fortunate to be in the right place to get to the big game. They were going to be a dynasty but it didn't happen because the defense couldn't carry the whole load every single year.)

If Kaepernick goes down will Tolzien get SF back to the big game? No.

Did Atlanta, DC or Seattle make it? No.

You keep saying they need someone but I don't see you telling us WHO.

Do you want to draft Geno Smith, Mike Glennon, Matt Barkley, Tyler Wilson, E.J. Manuel or Tyler Bray? This year's draft is pretty weak at QB. None of them will stand up for a full 16 game schedule.

FA's- Matt Moore, Jason Campbell, David Garrard, Chase Daniel, Drew Stanton are Rotoworld's top 5 QBs. Most are trying to land a starting job. They won't want to come and sit on the bench behind Rodgers. Even if they were other teams are considering offering them starting qb money. That leaves GB out.

What about a trade? Who do you want? How much do you think GB would have to give up to give them? I don;t see anyone I really really want to have at this time.

Quite frankly I would love to have a Pro Bowler backed up by 2 more PB at every single position. It ain't going to happen. So there has to be some weaker spots. Behind Rodgers is going to be one of them. Because with Rodgers they don't need a #2.

If Rodgers went down FOR THE YEAR during the preseason, I highly suspect Ted would bite the bullet and make some sort of a trade for Flynn.

Either way, the organization would not be folding up their tent and giving up on the season. If they went with Harrell, I think people might be surprised. Teams have been known to win Superbowls with non-HoF calibur QBs.

uffda udfa (19h) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (20h) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (20h) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (20h) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (20h) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (20h) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : Tolzien being evaluated for concussion. What?
hardrocker950 (23-Aug) : wow... what a joke
dhazer (23-Aug) : Cheese heads are everywhere donot be sureprised ifor we are louder
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : And you're wearing a Ben jersey... sad!
dhazer (23-Aug) : Hello from Heinz field
dhazer (23-Aug) : Anyone else going to be at the big ketchup bottle of Heinz Field
Mucky Tundra (23-Aug) : TEBOW!
