    I doubt it alters the first pick...but beyond that...will the pack be more inclined to go after a wr or guard (although they'd need guards regardless)...will they focus more on offense?!? Any thoughts?

    No it doesn't alter the draft.

    Brett is not the 'future' of the Packers. I am saying that in the truest form, not a slap in his face.

    He's playing this season (and next season too).

    Rodgers is our future and if the Packers can get their hands a QB they feel is superior to him, they will take him and I hold nothing over them if they do so.

    It might. I think TT will make a big push for Woodson. I think TT will draft AJ Hawk or Williams if he's available. After that, they will go offense and get guards and receivers.

    Hawk hawk hawk...but other than that, I think you may be right packedhouse...maybe a pick or two of best available...but I don't see too many glaring holes with this team other than guard and wr depth, so it makes some sense to hit those spots hard and hope to find a few that will work out.

    Not at all. TT will go BPA.. In my opinion it'll be either Hawk or Vernon Davis. Young would be a darkhorse but a big one.. They'd have to dislike Rodgers like I do to take him... I'd say Super Mario is out of the question now. He won't be on the board when we pick.

    It shouldn't effect the draft at all. We have no fewer holes than we had yesterday.

    Exactly. We still need a QB for the future. (I'm not saying Aaron can't be that person, just saying if you have superior talent available at QB you HAVE to take it)

    If anything...Favre retiring would alter the draft...we might feel obligated to get Vernon Davis, as a target for Aaron Rodgers to get acquainted with...

    Guard and receiver was a hole an hour ago before Brett made the announcement, and still is now--hopefully they're addressed accordingly

    a bigger question is...does this alter/solidify Charles Woodson's decision...

    that's true that the holes are still there, but are you more inclined to go best available throughout the draft...or best available at the position you need since this is Brett's last year?

    As for Woodson...man, it sure can't hurt...and I find it amusing that he says he's making a decision w/in 48 hours, and then the brett news pops a few hours later.

    TT keeps talking about taking the best player in round 1 and is said to not be ruling out QBs. It could be a ploy but could Vince Young end up a Packer? I hope not he doesn't appeal to me especially that early.

    I'll lose a lot of respect for Ted Thompson if he does...he'll go back completely on what he set out to accomplish with his first draft...

    Aaron Rodgers had mop up duty in his first season--therefore the only game footage you have of him as a starter is what he had with the Cal Bears...and that information was readily available before we took him at #24...so someone effed up...scouting staff, ted thompson, someone--IF they're willing to go back on their first pick this quickly without even seeing him play

    the #24 pick could have (and if I had things my way would have) been Odell Thurman who didn't do too shabby as a rookie with cincy...I'm not saying that pick sent us into tailspin and a 4-12 season, but I don't think it was a great move especially now that rodgers is good enough (sarcastic) that we're doubting his potential before he's even had serious, meaningful experience with the team

    We will NOT draft a QB in round one. Just running a little interference.

    A-Rod will be the QB when Favre leaves.

    Yeah. Almost everyone I've talked to says they'd rather have Rodgers than Leinart anyways.. including me (yes, I talk to myself).

    I believe Pyledriver is exactly right. IMO, the talk that TT isn't ruling it out is an effort ot get somebody to trade up. There's alot of smoke being blown around this time of year and this is probably just another example of it.
