    It was a group asking those questions at his locker room, not just Bedard. Bedard comes off as a real nice guy. He even kept quiet about Nick Collins dad when he was dying when he knew that what was keeping him out of camp. Meanwhile other reporters said Nick was solely gone because of contract issues. Bedard is the best reporter that follows the Packers, followed by Tom P from GBPG.
    Then I retract my statement, but goddamn that was a terrible article, and I hate people.

        That's pretty much it, right there. Bedard is your typical pot stirring writer who is always just out to try and make up some sort of story. Now, just to say this now, I'm not a twitter guy, but I did sign up for it and followed Packer news, etc just so I can get some more information a bit quicker. Anyway, Bedard tweeted on Barnett's first day of practice saying some BS crap like "Nick is looking a bit top heavy out there. Doesn't look like he can get much torque"

        just a totally ridiculous comment

        • The Green Bay Packers are concerned enough about their backup quarterback spot that they could get involved in trade talks with Tampa Bay, which is shopping quarterbacks Byron Leftwich, Luke McCown and Josh Johnson. A league source said the Packers are exploring backup quarterbacks around the league and another source said Green Bay has McCown as a possibility.

          The Packers have been concerned about their backup quarterback situation for awhile and seriously considered acquiring Michael Vick, who signed with the Eagles, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Second-year players Matt Flynn and Brian Brohm are the Packers’ current backups, with Flynn serving as the No. 2 to starter Aaron Rodgers. Flynn is currently nursing a shoulder injury, and Brohm has done little to take advantage in Flynn’s absence.

          The Buccaneers will deal Leftwich, McCown or Johnson — all their quarterbacks except first-rounder Josh Freeman — for the proper compensation, several sources said. A late-round draft pick and/or a player might be all they’re offered. Tampa Bay does not want to carry four quarterbacks on its final 53-man roster so teams could wait until final cuts to see if the Bucs release one of the three. However several teams — Chicago, Buffalo, New Orleans, New England and Jacksonville — could be in the market for backup quarterback help. Green bay already is.

          • I think it all depends on how Flynn progresses. He won't play this week but if he can go next week I think we'll just have the phone nearby. McCown is owed something like $2.5 million this year which is just a huge amount for a backup QB, and for a backup QB will little game experience. Leftwich doesn't really fit our system and Josh Johnson is more of a project. If anything we're going to wait and see who gets cut.

              I think it's more about Flynn's health than his progession. I think Flynn would have to be out for a couple weeks for us to do anything.

                Thats what I meant, how Flynn's injury progresses.

                • i dunno. McCown is just a guy. He's not gonna win games for us if Rodgers goes down. And neither is Matt Flynn.

                  I still believe they need to have patience with Brian Brohm. he is the only one that has the potential to come in and do something more than dink and dunk his way to a losing record.

                  If Rodgers goes down in 2009, so does the season. doesn't matter if it's Flynn, McCown or Leftwich taking the snaps. but, i still believe that at some point, it'll click for Brian Brohm and we'll have a legit backup.

                  That, said, if he still plays like he's playing in 2010, ride him out of town on a rail.

                  • Sooo... The defense has more takeaways than Rodgers has incompletions...

                    they get smoked.

                    • Yeah, I really REALLY wanna believe Rodgers is gonna be a BEAST this year and I wanna believe the Defense will put together a Top 5 effort. It goes without saying that the lot of us hope and wish for it.

                      But frankly, I'll settle for Rodgers standing pat and the D at least making it to the middle of the pack.

                      As far as a Veteran QB presence goes, the question is thus; we're pretty dang sure Brian Brohm cannot win games on his own, like every other available QB in the market, but can he avoid losing them in bunches?


                      And as an insane addition, I really want to see the uniforms Green Bay wore during the 1950's- the sucky-sucky years.

                          You won't have to, he's going to go off this season.

                          and the D at least making it to the middle of the pack.
                          I think the defense has a fair chance of being a top 10 unit.

                          • Who has been wearing the helmet with the radio in it on defense with Barnett out? Will he wear it when he comes back?

                            Comment


                            • I'm almost positive Nick Collins has been wearing it with the first team. Not completely sure for second team, but I think that's Desmond Bishop.

                                Hawk has been wearing it but its going to be Barnett when the season starts. Hawk has been coming out in the nickel package. Wouldn't suprise me to see Collins wear it either because he's in on every defensive down and Barnett's coming back from injury.
