    Very good thoughts. This thought is part of what I referred to in some of my posts in other threads. Fans are hoping the Packers sign some big free agent to help the defense. But they simply can't afford to. A lot of folks look only at the cap this year. But you can bet management is planning ahead. Looking into next year, Rodgers isn't the only one who will be under consideration. I believe there are a bunch of contracts due then. So we realize, the big FA isn't going to happen. Draft and develop is the Packer way this year.

    Not worried, next year Driver's contract will run out & eventually Woodson's will 2 and will pay him big $$$ with no worries.

    Yes, we need to keep Mr. Rodgers a happy camper. I would leave nothing to chance. He is worth the money for sure.

    I'll check my wallet and send them what cash is in there if that will help.

    man, I hate JSonline stupid limiting article reads, pisses me off.


    Rodgers will probably get an extension either next offseason or the one after. Got some other guys that deserve contracts between now and then

    A-Rod will be a Packer for life. He will get his big payday maybe later in 2012 season after we take care of what needs to be done now. He's a team guy, I'm sure he want's to get the pieces to get his rings and MVP's now and knows he can lockup the big contract later. Cap will rise and he will get his deserved bucks. A-Rod will be a Packer for life or until we draft the next A-Rod in 10-12 years (if we are really..Really..REALLY..LUCKY).

    I feel like we had this other QB I thought would be a Packer for life. In fact I thought we signed him to a contract to do just that.

    I really hope A-rod will retire a Packer, but at one point I thought He whose name cannot be spoken would retire a packer, and Montana would retire a 9'er and Manning would retire a Colt, well the jury is still out on that one.

    Cash, checks or money orders will do. Just make sure you make those out to me.

    Croak, I'm still waiting for that deed to the Brooklyn Bridge.
    Rocky, how's it going for that ocean front property in Arizona I sent you the money for?
    Any progress on my house being built?

    Just another reason why you cannot make knee-jerk reactions and chase every high priced, big name free agent in this business. Draft the best player available, regardless of position and develop them into a starter is what gets you long term, sustained success.
