A steadier RB situation would help with short passing and maybe if the conga line of TEs we have gets put to use. I feel like Rodgers would audible from passing to running plays (well, at least when we have a RB in) and go to check downs if there was any consistency at RB. Once Harris showed he could catch the ball Rodgers was more than willing to go to him. Whipping Green into a 3rd down back over the offseason should be a priority.

I'm just thinking of what it would be like running out of 2 TE sets, ones where both TEs are good blockers! Thank God Quarless is coming back.

I don't think, the premise is that Rodgers doesn't have time. It is more, will the team be able to afford to put a winning team around him once he and others get paid. If rumors are true and Rodgers gets extended soon, and sets the new bar. His salary impact to the cap will likely double or more. That could be 10, 12 or 15 million less to pay players around him. Add Matthews and Raji and that jumps even more.

I hope Rodgers is really as smart as he seems to sound, and realizes he is better off, if he takes less, so the team can pay to keep better players around him. I would rather have a line that is worth 20million a year blocking than one worth 10.

The Green Bay Packers will be in the running for the Superbowl for the next 10 years as long as Rodgers is the QB. That's all I have to say.

*As long as Rodgers is the quarterback and has more than 2.5 seconds on average to get the ball out before needing to scramble

Yes.

And we should take a long hard look at Bulaga, as well, because I'm pretty sure that he only has a year or ten left.

I do believe Rodgers is on record (might have been during the Wilde show) of saying that when it comes time to extension he was not going to be asking for a ridiculous amount because he wanted the team around him to be good as well. It was something along those lines and if I wasn't busy at work, I'd take time to find it.

It was a good thing to hear....it will be an even better thing if it came true. Flacco's new contract does not help at all though.

If he insists on passing up open guys to hold the ball 8+ seconds, he should be sat down until such time as he is willing to adhere to fundamentals.

Sometimes I wonder if Aaron Rodgers ran over your dog or something. You do seem to exaggerate things quite a bit - Here's a nice read that's got a pretty good breakdown:

I would like to see either some clarification on your comments or some sort of evidence backing up your claim that Rodgers semi-regularly has the ball for around or more than 8 seconds with people open that he's choosing not to throw to. You repeat that stat often enough that I'm not sure whether you're exaggerating simply for dramatic effect or not.
