Here's an article by Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel where he ranks all 53 players on the Packers' roster:

This reminds me of our "Who can we least afford to lose to injury?" thread from a few days ago, but it's just different enough to merit its own thread. McGinn put Chad Clifton at #2, which I totally understand. He is an underrated player. I forget about him myself sometimes. One surprise is that Al Harris is at #14. I would've ranked him a lot higher than that.

He could've done a lot better than throw out a bunch of preseason QB ratings. QB rating is the lazy man's statistic. My concern about Brohm is that I haven't seen him make any really good NFL plays yet. I hope he's making some in practice.

I'm talking say he got hurt on the opening KO.
Who would be the kicker for the rest of the game?

Im suprised Grant wasn't up toward the top more. Than number 8. I would think he would be in the top 5, maybe even the top three

Remember guys this isn't a ranking based on inate skill or talent, this is about value to the team. This is basically McGinn's rankings of this thread:

Agreed about the QB ratings, but Brohm looked like he didn't belong in there. Sure, it was his first preseason, but Flynn had much more poise (and it's Flynn's first preseason as well).

And Flynn's a tough kid. I saw him take a hit that would have made the average man practically hork on the spot, but Flynn took it in stride. I watched my younger brother once deliver a hit like that and the kid literally crawled over to the sideline and horked.

The coaches obviously agree since they put Flynn at #2. I just can't believe Flynn fell so far in the draft. What a nice find.

beast (2h) : Yeah it's weird, if anything goes wrong the defense and OL get blamed, even if passing game fault
hardrocker950 (4h) : But I put it mostlt on the offense and poor playcalling
hardrocker950 (4h) : I have seen the defense take a lot of flak over the loss..
Cheesey (5h) : Rodgers would have hit open guys. The game plan wouldn't have killed us. Less 3 and outs, and maybe some scores.
beast (6h) : Rodgers wouldn't of abandon attepting to get the ball to Nelson and Adams.
Zero2Cool (6h) : Rodgers with that game plan would have came up short too.
beast (7h) : Yeah the Packers defense got wore out... being on the field so long. Giving longer breathers than 3&out would of helped a lot IMO.
Cheesey (8h) : There wouldn't have been so many 3 and outs, thus keeping our D off the field.
Cheesey (8h) : True, but with the low score we would have had a chance with Rodgers behind center.
Zero2Cool (8h) : Brees is a damn good QB, not giving Capers a pass, not even close.
Zero2Cool (8h) : Saints kicked Packers ass with Rodgers too.
Cheesey (9h) : That's just it. Rodgers needs a DEFENSE as well. And without him, there is NO chance.
beast (10h) : Just fire everyone! Rodgers can do it without them! Hell trade for the healthy Browns players!
Cheesey (12h) : Capers needs to GO. So do players that can't cut it.
Zero2Cool (12h) : Capers presser summed up? INjuries are why we suck. (shut up, coach and adapt)
Zero2Cool (13h) : nearly crapped myself hearing dom capers talk, forgot to close the tab after mccarthy haha
Zero2Cool (13h) : McCarthy said the communication was not good enough on defense yesterday. Injuries in secondary have complicated substitution patterns.
Zero2Cool (13h) : McCarthy again says "I believe in him"... sorry, BS, we saw how you believe in him yesterday.
Zero2Cool (13h) : @The_Green_Gold Highest graded players Kenny Clark & Blake Martinez. It wouldn't be possible to grade an entire defense
Porforis (14h) : Well, it WAS clean until someone 'shouted' in it...
Zero2Cool (14h) : QB Brett Hundley when targeting a WR against Saints: 6-for-15, 54 yards.
Zero2Cool (14h) : clean?
