    If we get Gray, then we can delay drafting a QB for one maybe 2 years for depth or to replace A-rod if he doesn't pan out.

    hmm i'd still take a QB in the 6th or maybe as an Undrafted rookie. TT is pretty on the ball with his scouting so i reckon he'll find some good project QB's.

    The prospect of signing a QB to compete with Arod rather than mentor him is interesting though. Its a choice MM and TT have to take. I dont really like the idea of ARod's being "given" the starting QB role just yet, perhaps after a decent TC battle with Gray or someone of his calibur would be beneficial.

    id say ARod would win the battle easy enough but it would be different to bringing in a guy like Ferotte or Brunell who would pose no threat at all to him and wouldnt push him. Do you know what i mean?

    I am not sure how a Quinn Gray would help other than to have someone compete with Aaron, but even at that it isn't much of a competion... plus he doesn't seem to fit the style of play that GB is looking for.. but hey it is some activity to keep us busy in what is a non existent portion of the season for the Packers.. early days of FA I mean.

    I thought I read somewhere that the Packers were very interested in Quinn Gray last off-season.

    In the same snippet, it was also implied that Gray was the leading candidate to be signed by the Pack as a back-up QB for A-Rod. I think it was profootball weekly where I read it, I'll see if I can find it.

    You mean this one.. yep, it possible.. but I am curious to why. Maybe I need to brush up on Quinn Gray's style of play..

    http://www.profootballweekly.com/PFW/The+Way+We+Hear+It/Whispers/2008/whispers030808.htm

    Our Packers sources tell us that, even before Brett Favre announced his retirement, the team had its eye on UFA QB Quinn Gray of the Jaguars, who is now being seriously considered for the backup job behind Aaron Rodgers, among numerous other possibilities via free agency or trade.

    For the record (no, I'm not an insider), I seriously doubt that anyone will be competing for Aaron's job. His job is pretty much set in stone unless Favre decides to quit retirement.

    If we bring in anyone, it's for the #2 spot vs Craig Nall.

    I have seen Nall's name thrown around all offseason, but he has yet to be resigned.. unless I missed something..

    I like Quinn Gray. I think he has the talent and with good coaching could be a good backup to Rodgers. I wouldn't mine this signing at all but I still rather see the Pack bring in a veteran too.

    Could be TT is waiting until after FA and the draft for Nall, so he knows how much money is left to put in Nall's contract as bogus incentives.

    Quinn Gray is awesome. I've always liked that guy. He's got some starting experience, and could be a valuable backup.

    I think we need to draft a QB no matter who is signed as the #2 and if I had my druthers I would look for a #2 with a little more seasoning than Gray and several young prospects to battle for the final spot.

    I'd rather have Daunte Culpepper or Byron Leftwich.

    Come on. Quinn Gray backed up Leftwich.

    I dont think TT will ever throw the big pitch at FA's. I bet he just says if you wanna win football games join us but if you want to feck around and just add to your jewellery and car collections then you can get lost. Simple As.
