I would ask why we're spending draft picks on who's going to back Rodgers up for a few games rather than players that are going to prevent Rodgers from getting killed to begin with. In prior years I would say "yes", but we're thin enough in other areas that say, a starting quality corner or safety would be a better use of a trade. I doubt we're going to find any better linemen mid-season.

I'd be okay with signing Josh Freeman under the hope that they trade him shortly before the deadline after he showed he's lights out filling in for Aaron Rodgers because the Packers are smoking teams so bad.

I went on Facebook this morning before any sports worthy news and saw PackersHome.com's page read, "Packers sign QB Freeman."
I was so excited until I clicked and realized it was just an "if" thread. Sad

He is an upgrade over Wallace, that is for sure. However, this guy isn't going to any team that is going to make him hold a clipboard. He was demoted from captain by the Bucs players and just seems like a big locker room headache. Sure, it would be great to bring him in, make him the player he should be and get some draft picks out of him but I just see another team snatching him up.

The only three teams I see in the running are Bills, Browns and Jaguars. Jaguars are too damn dumb to realize they need a QB though since they continue to make Gabbert the starter over Henne. Browns have Weeden, but what's behind him or would Freeman come in and start for them? The Bills are dependent on how bad Manuel's knee injury is.

....maybe there is a chance for the Packers to stash him as a back up. Smile

Off-topic, but some Flynn-related humor...

Freeman sounds perfect for Oakland.

Ted should just try and trade for someone that would impact our team immediately like a good O linemen. Someone at safety could help out too and would compliment Burnett once hes healthy. This would help out the team by dramatically improving our two biggest weakness right now which is pass protection and secondary.

Oakland is going with Pryor as long as he is not hurt (I've been very busy this past week so I don't know what his status is) and I think it's the way to go for them. Didn't they get him in the supplemental draft?

I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.
