But to answer the thread i wouldn't care what Ted Thompson did because Rodgers really don't have alot to stand on. Atleast Cutler was a Pro Bowl qb already but what i hate is this seems like its going to be the norm every year from now on in the NFL. It didn't start last year here in Green Bay i think it started a few years ago with TO in SF and then again in Philly. You whine enough and you will get your way.


Brett whined last year and did not get his way.

Brett was also a Pro Bowl QB last year, and no one wanted him this year.

NO?

Aaron DID go through what Jay Cutler went through.

In his 3rd summer he was rumored to be going to the Oakland
Raiders for Randy Moss.

Ted Thompson completely denied it and WHO KNOWS what really
happened, but Aaron and his agent got assurances that he was safe
and moved on.

The BIG difference is that Aaron was not a starting QB at the time
and didn't have the leverage that Jay Culter has.

Either way..I think Thompson and McCarthy are much more straightforward(or it appears) than Josh McDaniels.

Josh was just trying to do the Patriots mantra of that no one player
was bigger than the team. He failed to realize he as a coach HAS NOT WON ANYTHING, and he's doing the cart before the horse. BELICHECK can do that because he's proven himself as a coach. McDaniels thought his reputation would precede him.

I predict disaster for Josh McDaniels.

Unfortunately, this really does shift the balance of power for the Chicago Bears. Now we have another dynamic young QB (who also happens to be good friends w/Aaron) to face twice a year.

GREEEEAT JOB JOSH MCDANIELS. It's one thing to mess up your own team, but thanks for making it harder on the Packers in the Norse division.

NO?


Goes to show about age.

In my not so humble opinion, BF was the 2nd best QB in the NFL in '07 (after of course Tom Brady). He was electric. Led a team with NO running game to a 7-1 record, then went on to finish 14-4 with the youngest team in the NFL.

But age is cruel to an athlete. Heck, ask Jeff Garcia. I happen to really like Garcia and wonder why nobody's gobbled him up yet. Actually, I shouldn't wonder because the guy's older than I am. Even Kurt Warner, teams look at him like he's got a two year life expectancy, if that, and the guy led a team that had no business even having a winning record to the SB.

But Cutler has something Brett Favre and Jeff Garcia don't have - his 20s.

Also ask Jeff George. If you ask Jeff George, he'll tell you he's a top 16 QB in the NFL if someone took a chance on him. Is he or is he full of himself? I don't know, I don't know him personally, but he has Michael Silver convinced he should be worth someone taking a chance and Silver actually knows half the NFL personally.

Best post I have read in a while on any forum.

You make total sense, and it is educational. Well, to me it is.... Gave me a different perspective on the subject.

Well done

Can we please lay off the yammering about how Cutler has a Pro Bowl berth and Rodgers doesn't? For one thing, Cutler has played for 3 seasons; Rodgers, for 1. For another, Favre was nominated to the Pro Bowl last year in a season in which he lead the NFL in interceptions, so that shows how worthwhile Pro Bowl honors are. Furthermore, Rodgers didn't get Pro Bowl consideration because a) his team was 6-10 and b) he was third in the NFC in total yards, touchdown passes, and quarterback rating, in a season in which Drew Brees threw for a mind-boggling 5,069 yards and 34 TDs (96.2 RTG) and Kurt Warner threw for an outstanding 4,583 yards and 30 TDs (96.9 RTG). If you count Rodgers' 4 TD runs, he was second in the NFC in total TDs. In any ordinary season, Rodgers' numbers are Pro Bowl calibre -- possibly even MVP-worthy. But 2008 was no ordinary season for the NFC.
