    I can't believe I never thought of this, there have been a lot of Great QBs with the #12, particularly in Super Bowls.

    Sorry man, didn't mean to come off as blasting you or anything. I agree with that assessment, it's a good idea to have someone behind Rodgers who can provide a backup in case he goes down. I think now that Favre has retired, that there is a good chance that TT will draft a QB and I think it'll be on the first day. Who? I'm not really too sure, but looking in FA I don't think those are players that TT will sign.

    I have to say that trom's photo of Rodgers with the moustache does not inspire confidence. But I like Rodgers, and I think he'll be okay. I hope the fans are good to him.

    I'm not in agreement with these people who try to project how many fewer games the Packers will win because of the QB change. It's not that easy to quantify. It's a chemistry thing. Conceivably, they could be just as good with Rodgers as they were with Favre, or they could be awful. All we can do is give the guy a chance. Look what Eli Manning did after a few tough seasons.

    I'm sure 49er fans felt that way when Montana was shipped off, but like Steve Young, Rodgers has had some time to sit and learn, and learn from one of the best ever.. Not saying he'll be that successful however he very well could be and there is no reason on earth to start dumping on the guy until he has a chance.. I'm sure there will be some obvious growing pains but this is still a pretty damn good team.

    All they need now is a veteran backup.. all should be okay

    Serious though, we will be fine with Aaron at QB... might be a slightly different offense but effective it should be none the less.

    Steve YOung played as a starter in Tampa Bay for several years before he even went to SF. He was already used to the starting QB role when he took over for Montana...

    Biggest difference was that he was on a perrenial winner in SF. And it still took him several more years before he led his team to the Superbowl victory.

    Yes he was.. actually though he was used to getting crushed in TB. :) My only point is you never know.. we will soon find out if sitting back and learning from a legend is truly beneficial or not.. if he can be near as good as Young was for SF (because he was garbage in TB as was everyone) then I'd say we could call it a success.. Time will tell

    I'm worried about the line protect Rodgers.

    Favre knew how to get rid of the ball and avoid sacks.

    Hopefully, Rodgers has that ability to.

    Rogers will do fine. I am looking forward to seeing him shut down Dallass at Lambeau this year.

    just heard an interview with Desmond Howard on Espn. Said he talked to chuckwood last week and chuck thought Brett would retire.

    when asked about Arod.... Chuck said. hes actually really good.


    GM confidence : check
    Teammate confidence : check
    Fan confidence : at least from me a big ol hairy check!

    Well said Pack93z.

    I thought this day would never come.
    Glad to see that Brett can retire on his terms, and also
    that Aaron gets to play before he's 30.

    You guys saw glimpses. Aaron's got a quick release,
    excellent arm strength, can make every throw, has plenty mobility,
    and has 3 plus years in this offense. He's sat behind a legend
    and has sponged up as much as he could.

    We should be happy that things are happening now. A young offense w/a young QB to grow with. The receivers are all comfortable w/Aaron
    and

    Ted Thompson will have another one of his draft picks to qualify his already lofty status as a good GM.

    I dunno how good Aaron's gonna be..
    I just know he's got the tools and what I DO KNOW
    is that he is NOT going to be Alex Smith.

    I just hope he can manage to not have teammates jumping
    on his hamstring!
    hehe

    You know I think Arod will be a quarterback like David Garrard of Jacksonville 18 TD's and 3 interceptions...I'd take that. Also take a look at Phillip Rivers of San Diego after the Chargers let Drew Brees go he only sat on the bench for I think one year. They had a 14-2 record. The did have LT though, but there is hope.
