    I just read today that Chad Henne will not be resigned by the Dolphins. Henne would be a great fill-in for Rodgers for a game if needed. He'd more than likely come cheap and is a veteran.

    What do you guys believe?

    Chandler Harnish is the answer. ....and then next year Jordan will be drafted and there will be a glorious triangle of greatness at the QB position.

    I believe that Brent Fail will come out of retirement.
    Try to get back his old starting job as the Packers QB.
    Then get back at the Packers by going to other teams.

    Chad Henne is horrible. (I was going to say something else but thought I might get spanked by the mods...)

    After seeing Harrell in college and in preseason games, IMO, he has more potential than Henne.

    Luck will fall to the Packers in the first round. Our problem for the back-up QB is solved. No worries.

    I'm with most others. TT will keep Harrell and draft another mid-to-low round QB. If there are no good options available in the draft at the right times, then I could see TT making a post-draft or training camp move to pick up a veteran. However, I think that Harrell will be the #2 QB no matter what so it would be hard for TT to pay even the veteran minimum for a #3 QB.

    If they draft a QB is the 6th or 7th round I wouldn't mind seeing them get Chandler Harnish out of N. Illinois if he's still there. Small college QB but could be somebody that has the tools to be a decent player down the road.

    Not only is Henne an average quarterback at best, he came from (dare I even write it) michigan! Sorry Tom Brady. I can't help it, Buckeyes rule.

    With the coaching staff's ability to develop qb's I think he could be very solid. He has the arm, he can really run as well and he has the mentality and is a gamer. He needs to work on decision making and accuracy/mechanics.

    Yep, I didn't see your post about him already, must have been not paying attention. I really like his athleticism.

    Would rather see us draft and develop than pick up someone who we already know isn't a starting quality QB.

    That's thinking outside the box.
    I like that.

    Is Tim Couch still crying on his couch? What about him as back up?

    I have a bad feeling that AJ Hawks brother in law might get a look for the league minimum.

    Henne isn't horrible but we know what we will get out of him. It's so hard to find a solid backup in this league, look at the Delhomme signing in Houston this season and the Collins signing in Indianapolis.

    We HAVE a back-up QB. I have watched Graham Harrell play since he was 16. Under the guidance of our coaches he will be a great back-up for Rogers. He has the mindset, the skills, the talent and the arm.

    I'm sure he'll be a good solid QB, but expect the Packers to draft a QB in the later rounds, Harrell will still be the 2nd Stringer though
