Quinn Gray Good Fit For the Packers?

Quinn Gray Good Fit For the Packers?

The Packers are visiting with Quinn Gray, formerly of the Jacksonville Jaguars, today at Packer Headquarters.

I'll admit to being rather underwhelmed with what little I saw of Gray last season, which included his stint against the Pack in pre-season and a few snaps here and there when he filled in for David Garrard when the Jacksonville starter was injured. However, he did win two of his three starts, all on the road, and put up some pretty impressive numbers. Plus, if anyone can coach this kid up, it's Mike McCarthy.

On a side note, it's interesting that the Packers are exploring the Gray possibility, if only that it shows that they might not be afraid to go into the season with very little experience at the quarterback position. (Hell, Gray would have more NFL starts on his resume than Rodgers). But I think it's keeping in-line with the way Thompson has built the rest of the team - create as much competition as possible by filling positions with young, emerging talent and let the competition push the best out of every player.

Now, even if Gray signs, I wouldn't rule out the club looking at a veteran with more experience somewhere down the line, and I wouldn't be surprised if they still drafted a quarterback on the second day of the draft.

I think he is unproven bu rodgers is some what proven. now a nother issue is how come lazy ted tompson has not gone after freeagents from another team for addition like lineback and cornerback? theres a good cornerback from newengland thats a five year pro. then they can draft a defensive takle in 1 round, 2nd round titend , late2nd backup qarterback hay theres another qarterback from usc like rodgers, its time for action by lazy ted tompson don,t you think?

Wow, Stephen, that's a whole lot of run-on sentences. And in answer to your query, I understand Ted reads CheeseheadTV every Tuesday, so he should see this today.
