I happen to come across this tonight.. Sorry if someone has already suggested or brought it up in a different form.


Quote:
With Graham Harrell and B.J. Coleman backing up Aaron Rodgers, the Packers could be in the market to get a better prospect. Aaron's little brother, Jordan Rodgers, could be the pick in the seventh round to come in and compete for a backup or practice squad role.

Rodgers is slightly undersized, but has a quick, smooth throwing motion that isn't too far away from his brother's. Other than that, it's unfair to the younger sibling to compare him too much to his big brother. Rodgers showed some escapability in the pocket and ability to keep plays alive.

Rodgers needs to improve his footwork and balance when he gets into the league. The Packers coaching staff should be able to work with Rodgers and get that figured out to improve his overall accuracy and consistency.

I think it would be fun to have the Rodgers Bros. on the same team. I wonder how Jordan would feel about that.

It would have to be a cold, calculated business decision, not based on any sentimentality whatsoever.

Although if he went undrafted, Ted would be likely to make him an offer.

Ted drafted Jeremy Thompson, after his brother Orrin Thompson was on the team.

I wouldn't... (unless it's clearly a great value AND you know he's going to make the team)

Do you really want to make your star and mental leader on the field have to be worrying about if he's brother is going to have a job or not tomorrow? I mean if he's on another team, he should be able to block it out no problem... but if he's right there in front of him, it's harder to block out...?

Rodgers would have to get used to having his brother around, then if he's cut have to get reused to not having him around?

Also Mike McCarthy has talked about he only likes 3 QBs in camp because there isn't enough passes to go around. And only 2 are a lock to make the roster... and the 3rd one might make it or might be cut, and if they're cut another team might claim them.

I see it as kind of asking for trouble.... unless you feel like good things will happen, like his brother will make the final 53 and be his future back-up (or current) back-up if he can beat two guys that already know the system.

I also think B.J. Coleman has all the physical skills but needed a lot of refinement. As many QBs have shown having all the physical Qbs doesn't make you a good QB, but the physical potential is there.

Jeremy showed potential and moved GREAT for a guy of his size, talent wise he had it. But he wasn't mentally tough enough for the physicalness of the NFL and of course that's more of the most important things.

It would be kool...but it seems as though it would be a tough situation for the player, coaches and management to be put into.

I sure hope not. We only keep 2 QBs usually and his chances of making the roster would be slim. I want to see him go somewhere where he has a better chance of sticking around, even if it's as a 3rd/PS QB.

As the third QB he would be on the practice squad and that's what he'd most likey be anywhere as the third QB. I agree he would have a tough time beating out Coleman, who should be able to win the backup job this year. At least that is my hope.

Jeremy had a neck injury and developed stenosis iirc.

You are correct. It's too bad because he was looking good in camp, according to reports, with the switch to a 34. He was a tweener in the 43. Might have been what we needed across from Clay, but if he had turned out really good maybe we wouldn't have Clay. What if's can drive one crazy...LOL

Jeremy Thompson always looked great.... until the pads went on.

Thompson earned the starting 3-4 OLB in shorts.
Then quickly lost it once the pads went on and became last string and ST player.

Thompson had the physical talent, but lacked the mental toughness.

And I know he got the neck injury, but I'm basing his lack of mental toughness (compared to other NFL players) based on him getting a lot worse once the pads came on and they started hitting. That being said, if NFL players start hitting us, I'm sure a number of us wouldn't be charging at them... but that's what DL is asked to do, charge the OL and get to the ball. (or clog the OL and protect the LBers, when asked to play two gaps)
