    Today on SportsCenter they had this ultimate depth chart for the QB position in the NFL. They considered both stater and backups to some extent. The Packers were ranked 15th. I think that is pretty fair, maybe a tad low. Thought?

    Well, of course the Patriots have to be number one because they have Tom 'Greatness in Cleats' Brady.

    I would say its fair.

    I'd say Favre is still a top 10 quarterback, anywhere from 7 to 10 but when factoring in backups, it is probably a fair assessment.

    I think my Bears were ranked 536th on there. See, I'm not a total homer. :wink:

    True, although its very hard to pretend the elephant in your living room is there. Sometimes things are just TOO obvious to overlook ;)

    Favre, Rodgers, Wrobel, Martin, Arth.....15'th might be generous.
    Pre Favre recommitment reports on how well Aaron was looking (good, more confident) have since started sounding different (not so good, still having trouble with deep throws), but as JSonline columnist Cliff Christl likes to point out, no telling how it'll go for him in the long run, or for any of the other guys (is Christl ever positive? Can imagine his response, "Given adequate reason.").
    More concerned at the moment with the incubating Harris and Woodson problems.

    I'm hoping they are using Brett, Aaron and Ingle and not degrading us with the others in the mix.

    It's true. If Green and Davenport are healthy then I'm sure the team goes right up into the top half of the list. As it stands right now though, we're relying on youngsters like Gado to carry the load.

    They were rating QB's. Left unsaid in the conversation is the distinct possibility of starting two rookies at guard and Wells at center.

    This MUST factor into the equation. It all starts with the offensive line. New system, rookies, might be tough.

    ESPN gave the PAckers 26 or 28th for WR and 25 for pass defense. They are really not being generous at all.

    it's because they are just thinking about last year and refuse to look at what kind of implications off-season moves can have on the next season. i am again reminded of last year when everyone said the bears were going to be one of the worst teams in the league, but they just kept winning and winning, but the writers would not change their tune until about week 14. you can't put ANY stock into ANY of this, even if they had been 'generous' with how they rated the Pack. they're no better at playing the guessing game than any of us are.

    I dont like where they have our defense. All the so called "experts" think both Al Harris and Charles Woodson are overrated though so I can understand that. Rush defense we were bad but overall defensive wise, I think we're top 15.

    Offense is about right except I'd move our pass catchers up maybe a couple of spots. Driver is more than capable of being a solid #1. Geesh he's been the Pack's go to guy for years now and he's gone to the Pro Bowl as the #1 guy. He's coming off his best year as well. Enough said with that..

    I understand their reasoning, but if I have one game to win, here is my list of who I want to QB my team.
    (1) Tom Brady (3 rings, duh!)
    (2) Peyton Manning (great passer, will always be in the game)
    (3) Brett Favre (great passer, warrior, will fight for everything)
    (4) Donavan McNabb (competitor, fighter)
    (5) Jake Delhomme (tough, good arm strength)
    ** Bryon Leftwich, Carson Palmer, Michael Vick also good options

    I would put Favre in front of everybody, if they all had the same receivers.

    Nice point De,

    It's funny how good Peyton is with his all star cast, but all it takes is some heat from the D and he is very ordinary. Tom Brady is a good pressure quarterback, but he does not and will never have the physical skills of our boy Brett. Carson Palmer is one to watch, unless he keeps getting taken out by DL that can't stop rolling!

    I think the Packers will be much better this year, Favre will cut his interceptions in half and throw 30 touchdowns with Franks taking a much bigger role.

    That's what I like to hear. I'd love to see Favre break Marino's record Dec. 21 against the queens. I will be seeing my second game at Lambeau. The first one pitted Favre vs. Marino. 2 of the top 5 QB's of all-time.

    The sports writer here in ny gave Greenbay qb rating of 22 but he's a homer for Buffalo.
