A hard question...When do we give Rodgers time to play?

    I still think it's a mistake not to see what Rodgers can do. Brett is human and even a Legend will someday no longer be here. Just throwing the kid into the fray is going to be a disaster. I know Brett did it, but how many QB's are capable of that? As unpopular as the opinion seems to be, I don't think you can build a team (and, yes, we have to rebuild) and not include the next QB in the rebuilding. He doesn't need a lot of playing time while Favre is around. He does need a chance to throw with the big boys in front of him. If he can't cut it, we need to know THAT too. I don't believe Favre will be around for three or four more years. He doesn't look very happy this year, and I can't blame him, but he's so used to winning...we do need to plan for the future. Just my opinioni.

    remember, i'm new here & i'm jumping into this conversation so take it easy on me, ok??...

    imo rodgers played in pre-season & that's about all i'd like to see of him ever again. there certainly is something to be said about the future of the packers but do we REALLY think it's rodgers??? i'm not convinced!

    i went to 2 pre-season games this year for one reason - to see Brett Favre play in what could be his final season. i got to see him throw some bullets & having fun with the rest of the team - it was great! i also got to see rodgers which was fine too. i honestly cannot see them putting him in unless we ARE 1-12!!! :wink: :pals: ok, let's have a beer!!!

    I'm not sure Rodgers is our future either. I hope the franchise isn't close-minded as in "We drafted him and we're going with him." I haven't been impressed so far, but he hasn't had a chance to show us anything either. I still can't imagine building for the future and ignoring that, shortly, we'll be needing a QB. In a way, loyalty to Favre can slow down the rebuilding process. We'll see what happens. If he gets injured or, God forbid, soemthing else bad happens in his personal life, we may find out very quickly just what an untested rookie QB can or can't do. CN will leave at the end of the year. I trustsed him as the backup.

    The Packers obviously are not close minded as the actions of scouting Matt Leinart, sp?

    Posters on this topic-Very good posts to PPierce question "When do we give Aaron Rodgers a chance?". It is not necessary to put him out there with no Running game to speak of and with only Donold Driver as a good Wide Receiver plus two new offensive guards. This is recipe for disaster for a rookie Quarterback. This season is still up in the air because we are in a poor NFC-North. All good Packer fans should never give up until the Packers are mathematically eliminated. Anything can happen in the remaining games. Hopefully The Packers starts winning starting tomorrow against Pittsburgh. This Packer team has not given up on this season nor should its fans!!

    I say never, he's hasn't got the weapons, his arm isn't particularly strong, his accuracy isn't particularly good and his size is not particularly positive.
