People assume that because they went 13-3 with Brett Favre that they can't possibly do that well without him.
Let me remind people a couple things about the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers.
1. Once upon a time Rodgers was passed up by 23 different teams, for no Reason?
2. Key word there... Limited. As in one half.
3. Cb a weakness? 4 teams better? Hmmm....

People assume that for good reason, it's Brett Favre.

Now, I for one feel that if Rodgers stays healthy he'll be fine. However, putting the Packers as the forth best team with first year starter is optimistic. Don't get me wrong, I expect good things from Rodgers and I feel with MM they can achieve it, but to think he'll replicate what Favre did last year( which was statistically one of his best) is expecting a lot.

As for the Vikings winning the division, the QB is still Jackson... You'd don't win divisions by having a QB that " just dosen't **** up". He better improve drastically and they better find a pass rush for them to win it, no matter who they have running the rock.

Maybe a Mario Manningham in the 2nd round, or say Keenan Burton in the 4th, I think he will make for a very good mid-round draft pick.
Bennett definitely didn't do anything to endear himself to Rams fans last year. I am willing to give him a chance to redeem himself though, not that I have a choice since he is signed for a long deal. I wouldn't worry too much about Holt's knees, he has barely missed any time his whole career. He just gets occassioanl nagging issues. With that being said, I definitely see the Rams taking a WR somewhere in 2nd-4th rounds.

Shockingly, I prefer the Yahoo one, which, regardless of which one you prefer, was the real first to my knowledge. Anyone know of pre-March 24th rankings?

If you're talking about 06 Grossman did **** up a lot actually...
Quote:
In a season dubbed as a "roller coaster ride" by Grossman himself, the fourth-year quarterback had several productive performances, which were seemingly diluted by a handful of turnover-ridden games. While earning a passer rating of at least 100 in seven games, he earned a sub 50 rating in five games during the latter portion of the season.
At that point their defense was flat out dominant and their running game was very good.

Now their offense is horrible, lacks upside, and they are depending on their defense to make a comeback.

I think Packer fans are getting a little too comfortable on the throne.

Minny and Chicago are both a good draft away from taking the division if Rodgers goes through growing pains.

I noticed that as well actually too. But to be fair it's split some are suprised by their success, but alot of posts by packer fans on various sites, which I read, back up what you're saying.

Even I got to admit that probably is a little high for the packers. I would actually say #8 or #9. But I suppose it all depends on how you think Rodgers will do. I think he'll be good. My question is can he stay healthy. That is what I am worried about the most. And considering we don't have a legit backup thats a little scary.
