If you were the Packer GM would you try to make it through the season with the QBs we have or pick up a vet and lose one of our young QBs?
I think Flynn has opened some eyes and Brohm was fairly highly respected, if we try to sneak one of them on the P squad more than likely we lose them. Can't call Brett up anymore. PackerForum

Personally, I'd roll the dice and keep them both if we can't get a decent pick for one of them. Plus I believe one of them would be about as good as a vet if the vet comes in during the season. This is a little dig, after all they said they built everyting around Rodgers in the off season and it was too late to change so how could you bring in someone that is not even familiar with the offense? What do we do?

I would think about picking up a vet, but if that don't happen keep what we got! :downtown:

Personally.. that train has left the station.. unless someone of decent caliber and willing to be "the backup" in Green Bay becomes available, then you really have committed to having a roster with two rookies as your backups.

They sniffed around CPep earlier this offseason.. and he wanted to compete for the starting spot.. and Leftwich had questions around him as well. It would have to be a quick study to get the offense down now.

Like it or not.. it is what it is... we have pretty much committed as loudly as a team can commit.. the ball is Rodgers and then the Rookies if he goes down.

Not the optimal situation.. but I can hear the uproar if the Packers went out and signed a Vet in the past couple of weeks..
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Oh and if I was GM of the Packers.. I probably would have done what I needed to do about two weeks ago or maybe even 2 months ago.

No way in hell I would go into a season with two rookies backing up a first time starter.. too many unknowns for me on a team that else wise has the pieces in place to play deep into the playoffs.

But that is just me.

I agree. Should have snagged some kind of vet at least 2 weeks ago if not sooner. At this point, I say we ride the wave. Sounds like Flynn is doing okay-ish. I haven't given up on Brohm. He's probably just got some jitters to work out. Over the next few years, we could potentially have incredible QB depth and at the very least, one of the rookies should garner some good trade value a few years down the line.

Get a vet if there is someone available that could help. Where is Vinny Testeverde? LOL But at any rate..If Rodgers goes down for a long time, our season is thrown away with two rookies backing him up. And if that happens you probably have a quarterback contraversy with your two backups. Because if they were In that position right now who knows who they would go with.

Bringing a veteran NOW would be stupid. But I hate to think about what will happen if A-Rod goes down.

Stay with the ones we have.
GB will be a stronger team in the long run if they do.
If A Rod goes down they won't make the play offs any way so no sense risking losing one of the pups at this stage of the game.

I completely disagree with you.

Rodgers goes down, the season's lost. Put Brohm in there. Have him learn. See what he's made of.

I keep Rodgers, Brohm, Flynn. Don't want a Vet. Only Vet I'd want is Jeff Garcia and he's staying put.

I have complete and total trust in what the Packers are doing and the path that they have chosen to take.

There is a reason I was not interviewed for the Head coach or G.M. job in Green Bay.

Although, they should have hired me to handle the media/PR instead of that White House Hack.

Did it involve Canadian Club?


I would advise you not to answer that question, rather direct it to the Chinese Media Commission for a statement.

Or Tim Rattay. Think of guys who have run the Packers (mcCarthy System) they very likely could get a call during the season.

You disagree with me.. how dare you.. :lol: (*edit.. to make sure it is clear.. disagree with me often.. I make plenty of misreads)

What I am saying is just this.. we have the pieces in place to make a deep run into the playoffs.. but it all hinges on Arod...

My opinion.. is you minimize the risk of ruining your season on the loss of one single player.. regardless of position. By relying on completely unproven players behind your starter is a huge risk.. by signing a veteran a couple weeks/months ago that could have minimized your dependency on rookies would be a fair move to the rest of your ball club.

To hammer home the point, that move a couple weeks ago may not have been a former QB.. if I was pretty confident that relationship was beyond repair I would have moved on acquiring another option for the club.

In my business I design everything with a failsafe redundancy option.. two rookies behind a first time starter doesn't equal that in my book. Again.. just my opinion.. but the dragging out the summer drama has put us in a bit of a bind here.. but again.. what is in the best interest of the club needs to prevail.

And RP.. I have faith in the leadership of this club.. however this is a risk that doesn't have much room for error. Name another club out there with only 3 QB's on the roster going through camp?

As a fan of this club, I see nothing wrong with questioning the soundness of this QB strategy we are deploying.
