Default Rodgers extended

Quote:
It took only seven starts for Aaron Rodgers to convince the Green Bay Packers he’s their quarterback of the present and the future.

Quantcast

The Packers announced this afternoon they have extended Rodgers’ contract through 2014.
5 years. Smart move I would have to say. Lock him up in case before he gets too expensive. One consideration of course is his durability.

I expect this to be one of a series of extension from Ted this season. Jennings for sure will get locked up too.

Smart move by the pack, for the same reasons you stated. I was one of his supporters, and am glad he got his chance now. He sruprised me a bit with how he started out to be honest, but I thought and think he will be a great QB.

I think it's a good move right now to go ahead and lock him up. The only reservation I have about the extension is Rodger's durability, but I guess you have to take risks as a GM.

Really nice move. Rogers should be one of the more productive quarterbacks in the next five years. They should keep Jennings away from free agency as well.

I wish the Packers would start to have a QB that sucks. After all those years i think they deserve mediocre QB Play like all the other NFC North teams

I was mostly joking.

However, Alex Smith was also simply a bad quarterback, and to whoever said Alex Smith's problem was never himself, well, it really was. I mean, he got beat out by JT O'Sullivan. Come on.

I dont know how I feel about this. Rodgers is playing very well, but it has only been 7 starts...Durablity seems that it may be an issue. He hasn't exactly completely lit it up either.

I think they could have waited until the end of the season or so. Of course, this could look to be a brilliant move.

He doesnt seem to be able to throw the deep ball like Farve but he's looked solid, why again did they draft Brian Brohm?

Word is 6 years 65 mil 20 guaranteed. Crapload of money for a guy with 7 starts but I'm not nervous.

If I am not mistaken he has had a very bad shoulder most of his career and has never had a true #1 receiver or a good line blocking for him, as well as a tight end that hasn't done anything...

Only positive on that offense when he was the starter was Frank Gore.

I'm not saying that Alex Smith would have been a good QB, but I think he could have been a game managing QB in the right situation, not worthy of the #1 pick though.

It's a great move, and I hate the durability crap. He'll be fine. He's not going to start 260 straight games, but it won't be a serious issue. And this year he has shown that he can play through injuries. The two previous there was no reason for him to try so we shut him down. The broken foot no one would have been able to play through anyway. Any QB can get hurt if hit in the wrong place. Tom Brady and Carson Palmer had season ending injuries this year, Tony Romo is missing significant time, and the chiefs lost like 5 QBs. If you play in the NFL you will likely miss some games. I think too big of a deal gets made out of his injuries.

As for you questioning his production, he has 12 TDs and a 98.8 QB rating which ranks him 7th in the NFL in each, he also only has 4 INTs and 1668 yards. Pretty damn good for anyone let a lone a first year starter.

By signing him now rather than at the end of the season we are able to use some of the unused cap space of 2008, which we have a lot of. Big advantage to do it now.

I agree - I think Smith could be a good QB in the right situation. He was showing real progress in his 2nd season. Poor coaching and a bad Oline, mediocre WR/TEs contibuted to his downfall.

Good move by the pack, though. Hopefully he stays healthy.

I'm not too keen on giving a guy who hasn't even played one full season an extension of 11M per for five years. (At least he's not a kid out of college.) Nevermind one who can't even stay healthy for one season.

However Rodgers is good as long as he can stay healthy. And given that the Packers have something around 20M or more in free cap space for this season plus how quarterback-vital the league can be these days, I can't fault the team for extending him now.

It was pretty much the case that he was the long-term guy for the Packers, unless Brohm somehow managed to outplay him which hasn't even come close to happening. This just makes it official.

I think that brings up a good point. His deal is still $12 million less than what Matt Ryan got.

I dont look down upon him as a player or anything. I think he is doing a great job (I thought he would), but I still have a problem paying that much for a guy with 7 starts and has had a couple injuries. Will these injuries continue to come back? What if theres one he can't play through? Just little things like that. 6 years and 65 million is a lot of money and I dont think it would have hurt the franchise to wait another 10 weeks.

Matt Ryan is a different case in my opinion. Falcons (among other teams that pick that high) have no choice but to pay a guy that much. Plus, he is going to be worth it :)

Spoken like someone who doesnt follow the team. Alex had to learn in a couple months what JTO had known for over a year. He also hurt his shoulder before the season. The consensus among the organization is that, early on, JTO would be better and then, once Alex learned the playbook, Alex would take over the starting job before season's end.
