If you had your starting QB retire and had to pick who to start what would you do?

how would rock paper scissors work with 4 options???

you could always use those "bubble gum bubble gum in a dish" songs.

Congratulations on a brilliant thread. One million points to you sir.

Sorgi is a natural leader of men. Also, he's going to retire with more rings than Favre.

this thread is a joke, at the very least say it from the Packers point of view because every situation will be different, from the QB in waiting, to the FA pool, to the teams draft position. At worst this should be in the packers team thread.

from a straight forward perspective, can u really do anything but put in the 1st round QB choice from a few seasons ago.......i mean come on.

If my backup is OK I would put him in and draft a young guy to be my QB of the future. Once he is ready I put him in there and the backup can come back to warming the bench :)

Edit: When I come to think about it, it depends on who the backup is. If it's Aaron Rodgers I don't use my 1st pick on a QB...

Why would the Packers trade for Quinn when they already have a former 1st round pick that has had 3 years to sit and learn the system?

Couldnt have said it better, and can you imagine if TT traded Rodgers for Quinn and Rodgers went on to have a great career and Quinn sucked. Can you imagine how bad that would be for TT and a huge risk that he would take doing that.

But what about the fact that Rodgers is terrible and Quinn is the second cousin of Jesus Christ?

LOL Phil said Brady is untouchable....but Anderson isnt so protected...

Anderson is a gun slinger just like Favre who doesnt seem to care about INT's.

I think the Colts would be pretty much screwed if Peyton retired. We all know Sorgi couldnt handle the QB duties, so we'd have to draft someone and then probably also get someone in FA.

Yeah, can we have examples. I won't use my backup if it's, say, Brock Huard if I can trade for a good one. And vice versa and all that stuff.

QBs from the Northwest have had a pretty bad track record the past few years. With the exception of Derek Anderson who came out of nowhere, name the last quality QB to start for an NFL team from Oregon, Oregon State, Washington or Washington State.

I'll give you a hint, Joey Harrington and Ryan Leaf are not answers.

If my team had drafted Aaron Rodgers in the 1st round 3 years ago, I'd give him a crack at the starting job.

Tell me after the next couple of years if you'd rather have Quinn or Rodgers and Harrell.

I think the better question would be Quinn and Braylon Edwards or Rodgers and Harrell. I would personally go with Edwards because he is a top-5 WR in this league.

Good luck getting Braylon Edwards at #24 in the 2005 draft.

I'm saying that the Browns had a choice with Edwards or Rodgers and they chose Edwards. I think they made the right choice.

Of course they made the right choice, but they were a struggling franchise in need of a talent infusion at just about every position, so picking the best player available made sense for them. The Browns' situation has absolutely nothing to do with what the Packers could've done back then or in 2007. If you want to give another option that the Packers could've picked at 24 that year that they reasonably would have with the 24th pick to go along with Quinn, be my guest, but to say Quinn and Edwards vs. Rodgers and Harrell is a totally unfair comparison, because the Packers never could've had Quinn and Edwards.

I'll give you that, but I just disagree with lumping Harrell into the situation. I feel that those two picks should be kept independent of each other because I'm sure if they didn't draft Rodgers in 05, they may have drafted Leinart in 06.

I understand where you're coming from there (though Thompson passing on A.J. Hawk?), but the person I was addressing said he'd rather have Quinn, which is why I went there. Like I said, I feel it would be perfectly reasonable to throw in another player that the Packers would've considered at 24 in 2005 into this mix, but that's why I was doing the Quinn comparison.

depends on, who the back up is, what the draft class looks like, where I was picking, and what the free agent/trade market looked like.

If I am the Packers I give Rogers a chance, but I might grab a QB on day two of the draft and/or sign Culpepper or another vet for insurance. I don't know what they have behind Rogers.

JT Jag
03-28-2008, 02:23 PM
If you trust your backup, go with him and bring in a good free agent to back him up.

If you DON'T trust your backup, go to the draft and still get a good free agent, and let them battle in camp.
