    i like the pick of rodgers, but i like it for a lot of different reasons than most packer fans

    i like it for what we didnt have to do to get a very good talent at qb

    to get the second qb in almost any year, one would need to be in the top 5 picks, that would have cost a couple number ones and maybe a two

    by getting him at 24, we save a bundle of cash and cap space as well. in most years the number 2 qb taken has gotten over 20 million, and even as high as 32 million for ryan leaf. theres a good chance of a 5 year deal with our pick at 10-12 million

    in summary we saved a ton of cash, we saved giving a ton of picks to move up, and we get a prospect thats as talented as almost anyone drafted in the nfl in recent years

    teddy did a very nice job on that pick, but he did get very lucky as well

    TT didn't "do" anything. Rodgers fell into our lap.


    i think this draft guru is blowing it so far.

    Arrow,

    It's amazing. It was like Moses parting the Red Sea, the way he fell to the Packers. I keep wondering what the catch is.

    I just hope he doesn't have "a hitch in his throwing motion." That was an obsure reference to Rich Campbell, QB, Cal who was the sixth pick in the 1981 draft by the Packers.

    The kink is Rodgers' armor is his positioning of the ball right before he launches it... how high up is he holding it to his shoulder(?)

    AG - I see where you're coming from on the TT comment - but go back to my Draft thread and read that comment for a different opinion and a small explanation.... (I'd have joined in yesterday - but ended up going over to one of our Sponsors houses and drank up all "his" beer... didn't get home until real late, either... Hey, it was free!)

    Whether Rodgers fell or not - I think the choice is a good one - and he has the moxie I was looking for!
