07-19-2006, 01:28 PM
i think Favre will come back again next year
many people disagree and not many agree

did they take Rodgers a year or two early?

look at the 2005 draft who they miss

1 - Mike Patterson - DT

2 - Heath Miller - TE (Maybe stop the steelers Superbowl run lol)

3 - Marlin Jackson - CB (maybe a good safety with Collins)

4 - Logan Mankins - G - maybe help favre stay up right

5 - Move Up?

_______________________________
Maybe they could have wait a year

look at the 2006 draft who they miss

1 - Matt Leinart - QB

2 - Jay Cutler - QB

_______________________________
maybe they could have waiten 2yrs

2007 they have could have gotten

1 - Brady Quinn - QB

2 - Drew Stanton - QB

3 - Sam Keller - QB

Rodgers could have been the #1 pick why would they pass on him?

2-3 yr wait for a 1st rounder i thought a 1st round is someone who can come right away and help the team - well thats how i use my 1st rounders

Not to Early. Simple as that.

Everyone thought Farve was going to retire after this season, and no one saw him coming back for another go. The Pack saw Rodgers as a good predecessor to Farve, and expected him to sit a year and learn the ropes from Farve. 2 years wont kill him, it'll help

McCarthy was said to have liked him better thatn smith and ha easily could have been #1. I wouldnt want to wait until this year because I dont like leinart any better and it would be stupid to pass on Hawk.

Several scouts, including Scott, had Aaron Rodgers as the best QB in that class.

Getting him where GB did was an absolute steal.

I am not a Rodgers fan, but, to me, the pick made sense:

It was a forgone conclusion that the Packers would have to spend a high draft choice on a QB in either 2005 or 2006.
In the (weak) 2005 draft, there were no players that filled an immediate need at #24. The guy they picked probably woulda been a reach to fill a need.
Rodgers was, by all accounts, the best player available. That combined with the relative lack of talent at other positions of need made the pick a no brainer.

cutler is favre he 15yrs ago

07-19-2006, 02:24 PM
cutler is favre he 15yrs agoat the time of the draft, Jay Cutler wasn't a big name anyways. Not that it matters because you can't look into the future and pick your players on future drafts

The last time a QB dropped from a possible #1 to the 20's was marino. and also at that time Miami had a QB and didnt need one. But lets face it, if a QB drops that far you have to take him. And I am a packer fan too. I have no problem with Rodgers. TT is a value drafter. He will draft the best player with the most value at that spot, even if we already have one.

He never compared Rodgers to Marino/Favre as a player.

He was saying that if a QB falls that far than it is great value to draft him.

Thank you, I never said Rodgers was compared to either of these great QB's. and if i was GM of the packers and rodgers fell to me in the 20's when he could of gone #1, I would not think twice about drafting him. and the packers didnt either.

wasn't some guy named Teford(probably have the name completly wrong o well) Rogers Offensive coordinator, he did coach Boller and Akili Smith, both hasn't produced like a 1st rounder, and some people think that the offensive system doesn't get them ready for the NFL, if he follows the pattern it will be a bad pick.

I agree, but both Boller and Smith were thrown into the fire as a rookie. Rodgers sat and learned a year, so he should be ready to go any time that Favre gets injured or he gets put in. I will be watching him closely in preseason.

If that is the case, All Penn State RB should fail because all past Penn State RB failed, Until Larry Johnson came out of Penn State. Just because Prior People have failed does not mean all will fail in the future.

Rodgers was not a bad pick, however it appears that opening this thread was.

lol

If you want to look to a certain scenario this year, all you have to do is look towards pretty boy Matt Leinart.

Depending on Tedfords system he may just create a QB that does well in college but can't handle the NFL, I remember Toonster said Tedfords system affects the prospect.

Cutler would have been perfect to sit under Favre IMO.

The Rodgers pick was fine. Favre is screwing the Packers by staying.

Except QB is a different position. At RB the system isn't that huge as most top RBs can get by on vision and natural ability while at QB the mental prep needed is much greater.

Rodgers was one of the top players in the draft (scott had him #1 overall) and could have easily been the #1 pick. the packers had an ageing QB who would likely be gone after the season. how could you justfy not takeing him at #24? they didn't expect to be picking high the next year and didn't expect a good QB to be avalible. also takeing a QB then gave Rodgers time to learn. if they waited untill next year the QB wouldn't be ready to play and they would have to bring in another QB for a year to learn. Rodgers was the best pick they could have made and it was the right time.

well I'll put it this way, what would I rather have
rodgers with 2 years of training
AJ Hawk

Matt Leinart with 1 years of traing
mike patterson

My pediction, Matt turns out to be a wee bit better in the long run but AJ Hawk becomes the conerstone that farve was 10 years ago and mike patterson is just another good starter, I'd take the first one, plus Rodger will be way more ready by the time next year

The Rodgers pick was fine. Favre is screwing the Packers by staying.Favre returning does not hurt the Packers or Aaron Rodgers. him staying around helps the packers win this year, and they'll do better with Favre than with Rodgers. him staying around also helps Rodgers. the Packers will have to learn a new offence and another year will give rodgers more time to learn it.

post date this thread to 5 years time and we'll know the answer. Any QB this year - Vince, Matt or Cutler would be sitting behind Favre and if they grabbed Quinn next year he'd be atleast 1 year away from anything good. They made the right decision at the time.

yes, but I'm glad that we got JP Losman instead of anyone in that class. That doesnt say much good for that class

I think so too cutler and brett are somewhat similar, but rodgers was still a good pick i voted it was just a little bit too early 1 year early.
