I keep reading how fans think Ted Thompson would be crazy to pick a QB in the first round. Why? Why is that such a far fetched idea? Aaron Rodgers is the starting quarterback. Period. Why is it such a crazy idea to bring in a talented player to be the back-up, especially with Rodgers' injury history?
Thompson alluded to this yesterday in what was possibly the longest press conference ever assembled so that a great many people could learn as little as possible. When asked about drafting a quarterback in round one, Thompson made, what is to me, the key point:
You can never have too many people, especially at the most important position in the National Football League.
Bingo. Fans need to stop thinking of the Packers' as a one-QB team. Welcome to how the other half lives. The Packers are in for a wild ride of 'Who's Your Starting Quarterback This Week?" and if you don't believe me, ask any of the teams in the NFC North how many quarterbacks they've been through since Favre started his incredible streak. The Packers will be no different now that the iron man is gone. So they had better prepare, and what better way than to stockpile talent at the most important position in football? I'm not saying it's a foregone conclusion, just that it's not as wild as some fans would have you believe.
