I would be over the moon with a wild card spot! I really think we're good enough for a deep playoff run, just not setting myself up for any kind of disappointment.

My theory on Culpepper: playmakers and good offensive lines make him a top 10 QB in the league. I know, I sound like an idiot -- but before I beat myself up too much, look at the production. He had one of the best seasons ever by a quarterback in 2004. Before you point out he had Randy Moss, I'm aware. But Moss only played in 13 of the games that year, and only accounted for 767 of Pep's 4700+ yards. That year, Daunte completed 69% of his passes, through for 4,700 yards, threw 39 TDs to only 11 interceptions. If not for Peyton Manning throwing 49 that year, Daunte was the league MVP.

The problems since then are obvious: bad teams and a horrific injury. So, I'm not the best judge on Daunte RIGHT NOW. But I know that he was a heckuva quarterback -- he just NEEDS the supporting cast to do it. I'd feel comfortable with him as our backup. Certainly more comfortable than Brohm and Flynn -- both of whom I like. It's just -- can we really win if A-Rod goes down and a rookie comes in to do the job?

Not to mention all the I told you so's due to having rookie back ups. I still don't buy that Culpepper isn't a throw it up and hope your WR makes a play type of quarterback (Moss being the best), but with our WR's we can do at least that and win. I've really got to get my precognition working again.

My biggest problem with Cpep isn't what he does on the field.. it is the attitude he may bring in the locker room and on the sidelines.. I think he would push for playing time at every turn to the point of distraction.. again, that is my distant opinion of him.

Me first type player.

Exactly. When he was with the Vikings Tice constantly fed his ego. Culpepper was a big part in the decision to trade Moss too (that worked out well). If he was in the GB locker room, he would be looking for every opportunity to unseat Rodgers. Every tie Rodgers struggles (which he naturally will early on in the season) Culpepper will be there chomping at the bit.

God I hope he goes to Green Bay. ;)

zombieslayer you're saying with a first year starter it's superbowl or bust?
i have all the confidence in the world but come on you can't say bust, its way to easy to lose a playoff game just look at last year!


We should play with that attitude.

Now, as a fan, I'd be happy to win the division, skip the first round of the playoffs, win the divisional round, and lose the championship game. But I bet that Mike McCarthy has his players aiming for the SB.

I would welcome the guy with open arms. I'm as pro Pack as it gets, but we need a veteran backup, period.

I think we have enough veteran leadership to keep Culpepper in check. The team is around Rodgers and I think onald Driver and others would make sure Culpepper doesn't cross the line and try to steal Rodgers' job

I liked the Culpepper idea better in April than I do now. I bet right now he is wishing he had accepted Thompson's offer back then, but at this point, I just don't think the Packers would gain enough by signing a veteran backup. The rookies have been through all of the off-season stuff, and they will be improving each week.

One of our backup quarterbacks will be hurt this week and will have to be placed on IR. (wink) The Pack has tons of cap money and that means they'll sign a veteran QB. They're not going to give up on either Brohm or Flynn. It's not going to happen, but I think they clearly know that they need to sign a back up. I'll be surprised if one of our QB's doesn't get put on IR.
