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.
