    I saw this on CNNSI, is this correct?

    At this point, any reasonable coach or GM would conclude that the smart move is to take a look at second-year quarterback Aaron Rodgers, whom Thompson's predecessor, Mike Sherman, picked in the first round of the '05 draft. Rodgers looked somewhat shaky during his rookie training camp, but he seemed to make huge strides this summer and had a promising preseason debut before leveling off.

    24% of this first round pick's contract is gone with zero contribution.
    40% of his stay in Green Bay will be gone at the end of 2006.
    Selecting an OG or other contributing player would have been a better fit.

    What if Brett would have retired.


    Then what do you say?


    Truth be told, the Packers did not know if Brett would hang out for another year or two. Aaron was predicted to be going 1 overall. When he landed at pick 24 the Packers couldn't pass him up. Although, ironic as it is, our HC Mike McCarthy DID pass on him and took Alex Smith.

    Taking Rodgers was the right thing to do.

    If this team is going to win this year it must have Brett playing quarterback. Any reasonable, knowledgeable fan will realize that you have one of the finest quarterbacks to ever play the game and can still play. Rogers may or may not be the star of the future, but this team belongs to Brett. That doesn't mean that I wouldn't try and find some significant playing time for Rogers, but Brett is the starter and should remain so.

    I agree for the most part, Brett is our best chance of winning, but at the end of this year and Brett says he will not becoming back next year, we will have to let Rogers get some snaps in some games.
