    Really?? Is it such an easy decision that you even have to put a lol at the end? I mean I see one for sure and that's Cutler but the rest kind of leave a lot to be desired.

    I'd probably take Vince Young and Jay Cutler but the rest are either hurt, unknown or an Alex Smith's case, a big bust.

    just quit arguing with this guy.

    Once Favre retires he will be gone for good. and on to the next frontrunner.

    He has been wrong about everything he has posted to date. Hes pretty useless. so lets just quit arguing with him

    You really do suck Fuzznuts. It's so sad. And try not to overuse the word "pathetic". Sounds like the only big word you know.

    You can't defend your weak *** draft argument so you run to the weaker "Tedford Protege" argument.

    "The draft is crap". Then WHY did your smart *** bring it up in the first place?? HYPOCRITE/Contradiction as well as idiot.

    TRY AND KEEP YOUR THOUGHTS STRAIGHT BEFORE TALKING TO THE BIG BOYZ OKAY?

    Hukt AWN Fonex Wurt Fur FUZZ.


    Annd Packnic is right. You've been WRONG on everything.
    You can't get your thoughts straight and I do remember arguing before over your nonsense.

    You just try to counter argue for your attention. I remember your
    needy game Fuzz....

    Hey can you list some more stuff you don't know about??

    We need a laugh.

    I saw that game...and a bunch of pre-season games too. I saw a pretty darn good QB out there and it wasn't #4. Why on earth would/should they want trade him away?

    Maybe we want to turn into Miami or Atlanta or SF or even Chicago? Put all your eggs in one basket until the bottom falls out of it and then what?

    Rodgers can and probably will be the future of the Packers. One day, sooner than we all wish, that will happen. It's rare when you draft a QB (a la Roethlisberger) and then successfully throw him into the fire before he is (supposedly) ready. No reason to force that situation on yourself...

    I think we all did, and yes, Rodgers did ok. But that doesn't mean he will ever turn out to be a top notch QB, just because he did ok for part of one game.
    Of course that doesn't mean he WON'T be good either. I just think our best chance for the immediate future is with Favre, IF he comes back.
    I'm hoping Rodgers DOES want to stay here and take over once Favre leaves for good. I just don't know how much longer he is willing to hold the clipboard. Of course, one bad hit, and he could become #1 earlier. Favre's been the "Iron Man" till now, but you never know in the NFL when that streak might end.

    I'm amazed how sure some of you are about how bad of a QB Rodgers will be. Please explain to me where to get your strong sense of certainty. I'm as strong of a Packers fan as there is and watch them anytime that they are on and whenever I've seen Rodgers I never thought that he sucked. I don't know if he will turn into a Hall of Famer but at this point I see no reason to think that Quinn, Leinart, or Russell would be any better. With as many QB busts as there are in the NFL I don't see any reason to get excited and trade him for another unknown rookie.

    Great post Cheesy!! On NFL network they were talking about Rodgers and they to said that Rodgers wont even come close to Favre as a QB. But maybe no new QB will. We have been so spoiled over the years with Favre that its so hard to let him go. But when Favre retires and Rodgers is our QB of the future I will still support him.

    Rodgers is signed through next season and the season after.

    Besides that, your points don't make very much sense. If Favre comes back, there isn't going to be a competition for the job. Its his. Favre obviously isn't going to be traded and he's obviously not going to be forced to retire.

    Also, trading Rodgers would be completely moronic for a number of reasons.

    I also don't know how people can not be impressed by how Rodgers has played in the last two preseasons and in the Dallas game. He's mobile, smart, accurate, and has a good arm. He has obvious upside.

    Rodgers didn't play like a "game manager" against Dallas. Game managers hand the ball off and try to pick up first downs if the team needs to pass. Rodgers ran an offense geared towards passing, using multiple receiver sets and quick reads. Game managers don't do that. They generally don't complete 11 straight passes like he did against Dallas, though that is nothing new for Rodgers, who holds the NCAA record of consecutive completions in a game at 23.

    I don't understand why people think TT would trade Rodgers or why people doubt that he has a chance to be a damn good NFL QB.

    If Brett commits to 2-3 more years, TT can easily trade Rodgers for some value and groom Favre's replacement easily!

    You don't know that Rodgers is the answer. You're just guessing

    It's not like Rodgers is irreplaceable...although some here act as though he is..

    And how likely is it that Favre does that? Seriously.

    Of course I don't. How could I? I'm not even sure I exist.

    But he has shown enough to warrant people feeling comfortable with him as the guy that gets the chance to start once Favre is gone. I don't see how any reasonable person could put a guy we just drafted or a potential FA pickup ahead of Rodgers when thinking about who the best replacement for Favre would be.

    Only an idiot would think Rodgers is irreplaceable. However, we aren't talking in absolutes, black and white. There is a clear value to the team in having Rodgers on the roster that outweighs any value he may bring back in the form of draft picks obtained in a semi-realistic hypothetical trade.

    This is the part of your post I don't agree with....

    If a deal could be swung with a team for a first or second rounder (and some later round guys), or a trade, I think TT could get some real value if Favre committed to 2-3 years..enough value to put us in the SB next year.

    These are the kind of bold moves that Wolf made while he was GM here, and if TT never reaches the SB with the Pack, this is something that could be pointed to...

    I think Brady Quinn is going to be an exceptional QB in the NFL...it's too bad the Browns have him because they already have a QB and wouldn't be willing to deal....

    Maybe TT could swing something with Atlanta or Miami...

    You know he covets draft picks, and if he could get some from these teams, it might be sweet....

    I am not convinced by the categorical statement that "TT covets draft picks". He has made sure to make the most out of them in the past, to fill the holes left by the previous regime, but that doesn't mean he'll continue to do so. He traded a pick for Grant. a 6th rounder, sure, but a pick nonetheless.

    wow the only thing I got from this topic is Fuzznuts isn't the most popular guy on the forum :D

    My opinion is keep Rodgers for when Favre retires.

    People have been saying that Favre is going to retire, "Next Year" for years now...

    What happens if Brett stays for 2-3 years...??

    Rodgers can be replaced....and we can load up for the SB in those years!

    Brett Favre---67% accuracy 4,155 yds.

    Now you're just talking silly. lol



    One of your favorite arguments against Rodgers is that he's unproven. Yet you'd take a guy who hasn't taken a regular season snap over him? That's just plain contradictory. :D

    What happens if Favre retires next year and the Packers are sitting with Craig Nall and some veteran?

    I thought is was apparent that I was throwing all the Madden speak to the screen.. thanks for picking it up.. There is only one real choice.. continue to groom Rodgers to take over.

    But anything could happen, they are options..one big spit ball is correct.
