He may have coached those 3 quarterbacks at one time or another but to say he developed them is BS.



Gannon was a career journeyman until Mike got ahold of him.

Your first sentence makes my point and Flynn drives my point home.
He wasn't developed well enough to find a starting job even with a team that is desperate to find a starting QB.



You mean a below average QB was made to look solid on the Packers playing under coach Mike McCarthy but doesn't look very good on an otherwise piss-poor team? Either that speaks to McCarthy's quarterback development skills or his coaching ability. Either way, it reflects well on McCarthy for being able to get the most out of the player. I don't see much negative for Mike McCarthy in the Flynn situation, at all. Quite the opposite, actually. You're reaching hard.

If I wanted to go the coached at one point route I would have added Brett Favre and Joe Montana.

Both Gannon and Hasselback have gone on record stating McCarthy was a very influential catalyst to their successful careers. I'd imagine Brooks would say the same as McCarthy was Brooks' coach his first 6 years (rookie year in Green Bay and 5 years in New Orleans).

Developing QBs isn't about taking guys who have no talent and magically making them talented. It's about getting a QB to reach their potential. Did Brohm, Harrell, Flynn, or even Rodgers have more potential than they've showed with MM? I doesn't seem like it. Now if a bunch of QBs had sucked with Mike McCarthy and went to another coach/system and reached a higher potential I'd agree with you but I don't really see any example of that happening.

You hit it right on the head. For a QB to make it in the NFL he has to have NFL caliber talent to begin with. He doesn't necessarily have to show it right away (that what development is for) but if he doesn't have it he probably isn't going to learn it. Whether you are talking about a high draft pick chosen as a franchise QB or a 7th round pick you hope to develop into a serviceable backup or perhaps even a starter and trade bait, no amount of development will bring out talent he doesn't have.

Take guys like Ryan Leaf or Jamarcus Russell. Were they just victims of a bad situation who would have developed nicely under the right mentor. I don't think so. Most of these guys try a few different systems and they still fail and that tells me that while they were great in college their talent, for whatever reason, didn't translate into the pro game.

While that MAY be true, why is it that Mike McCarthy could mold Aaron Rodgers into a Hall Of Fame QB, he couldn't mold one of the other guys into a serviceable backup?

Remember who were Favre's backups?

Brunell
Hasselback
Rodgers



add ty detmer to the mix !!

and kurt warner was a cut in camp one year !!

My wife and I met during the Seneca days at Iowa State. I am just glad we got the better of the two career backup Cyclones in the NFL. No Rosencopter please!!

uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : Tolzien being evaluated for concussion. What?
hardrocker950 (23-Aug) : wow... what a joke
dhazer (23-Aug) : Cheese heads are everywhere donot be sureprised ifor we are louder
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : And you're wearing a Ben jersey... sad!
dhazer (23-Aug) : Hello from Heinz field
dhazer (23-Aug) : Anyone else going to be at the big ketchup bottle of Heinz Field
Mucky Tundra (23-Aug) : TEBOW!
