Doug Ritchay column: Top 10 questions facing the Packers

There are 1 comment on the WisInfo story from Aug 3, 2009, titled Doug Ritchay column: Top 10 questions facing the Packers. In it, WisInfo reports that:

A year ago as the Green Bay Packers entered training camp, the biggest question was: Can Aaron Rodgers replace Brett Favre, the 2007 NFL MVP runner-up, at quarterback? Many doubted Rodgers would succeed, but in the end he was terrific, throwing 28 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions.

This is interesting. Ryan Grant is not a question mark. The Packers should already know what they got with him when he signed on the dotted line. Sooner, or later Thompson will realize he was backed into a corner last offseason with the Ryan Grant situation. With the entire Favre drama going on, Thompson wanted nothing to do with this Grant distraction. Thats why he steered away from his usual "dont pay too soon" attitude.

Cant blame Grant though, its smart business. He's not dumb, he knew there was an advantage to be had here and he took it.

And the rest is history. He grossly underachieved compared to his stat line in 2007.
