Groin injuries are nagging the longer you can rest Cutler the better off he ( Cutler) would be and if McGown is playing well why not go with the hot hand? Point is and fact is Cutler's record vs teams with a winning record flat out sucks plain and simple,sure Chicago scored alot of points,they score on kick returns,punt returns,INT and Fumble returns,well,anyway, we wont agree about Cutler thats obvious and thats fine,adults can disagree, just making an observation.Yes, i do like the way your backup plays,he came in and played very well vs Washington a nd clearly outplayed Cutler there ( as Cutler had 48 yards in the 1st half and McGown blew that number away in teh 3rd quarter) and McGown played very well vs Green Bay and beat the Packers,the kid has done very well as of now.
So if Wallace plays good, you think greenbay will not start Rodgers if he comes back this year? I've seen a few games this year where Rodgers wasn't productive for a quarter, a half or a game. Bears are in a good spot having to hot QBs .

Viking fans, wouldn't it suck if they beat the Skins tonight, and that one win kept them from the overall 1st pick in the draft!!!

Deja Vu all over again. 2 years ago we could have had RG3 except they went and beat the Redskins in the game where Pederson tore up his knee......

I don't think the viking fans have to worry about the vikings wining tonight and jeopardize their shot at the top pick.

If they did have the #1 pick could they trade it like they did with their #3 pick. And then just keep trading back like 5 times and get a bunch of picks and almost a whole new team? Or is there a limit that you can trade back with picks you have traded back from? There are a lot of QBs in this draft and many teams need them. LOL!

Ill say this,,I heard Rodgers is now 4-6 weeks.SO,i 4 weeks is Rodgers is told he could play ( 4 weeks after a broke or fractured bone is a lot to ask)but Wallace is playing very well and the Packers went ( lets say 3-1) would i sit Rodgers? Absoultely i would.If Wallace is playing well and the Packers are winning,why risk Rodgers coming back at the Minimum of 4 weeks and take the chance of him rebreaking it.It could happen obviously after 6 weeks,but, again,why chance it,if they are winning give him the extra week or so.BUT, we are in 2 different situations.McGown is playing well,beating GB which Culter has done 1 time in the 4 or 5 years hes been here,Wallace is a good backup and Rodgers is a top qb. Now thats just me,Would MM do that? who knows but he knows more about Rodgers then i do and has more info then i do.

I wouldn't mind trading back if we had a gm that could do it effectively.

Spielman has a history of moving up a few spots and giving WAY to much, and trading back for literally nothing usually.

He did alright a couple years ago with Cleveland and getting Kalil, but other then that his track record isnt so good. IMO.......

They did some dealing this year and Paterson looks like he has a real nice upside in a few years.Im not sure about Floyd and their other 1st rounder but the WR from Tenn. will be interesting to watch and didnt Minn trade picks for him?

They gave up there 2nd rounder, 59'th overall who NE drafted Aaron Dobson with. He's turning out to be a good player, but the queens would have never saw the value there. really it would have been a wasted pick (IMO) just a crap shoot.

They also gave up a third, fourth and a seventh. You could say it was a good trade, because of Speilmans history of drafting. He cant get 2nd rounders right so Patterson is a good pick considering his drafting history.

I think Floyd was a good pick. I'm in the minority, but I think he's played well so far. I think Rohdes will be good to but he cant stay on the field so far. Alot of injury's with him.

And of course we will eventually have to get a QB who can get Cordarelle the ball. But really IMO we need a better offensive line. To call this bunch good is just wrong. They way overvalue them because of Pedersons 2000 yard season. Pederson did most of that on his own. He had an incredibly high number of yards after contact.

The most painful thing is watching them squander his prime years with a bad line and no QB..... He's been a trooper so far but I could easily see him wanting to go to a better team in the near future if something isn't done.

GBPFan is entitled to a mulligan. Maybe Mulligan is his last name and he feels entitled to take one after each signature?

I was wrong too..........

I dont think they are going to get rid of Speilman, and I have no doubt he'll pick the wrong QB no matter where they draft..........

Well, you packer fans excited with you second QB going down? I imagine the call Ted Thompson is thinking of making will be awkward. "Brent?- I mean Brett? Hello? Hello?"

NFL Radio did. I hope Aaron comes back. Too soon, to be specific, and runs some more. I doubt it, though, since the packers will be out of it in another 3 weeks. Gosh, makes one wonder how anyone could be foolish enough to pick the packers to win the division, when they can't protect their qb, have no viable option (mcCarthy's hand-picked seneca Wallace? Bwaaa-Haaahaahahaha!)

That was just a disappointing game to watch. Wallace goes out after the first drive. 3rd sting QB played OK but TO hurt, more injuries, defense not getting it done with more missed tackles (except the fumble TD returned blow dead and Packers still don’r score), Foles throwing two horid looking bombs for lucky TDs, the refs rely bothered me today (normally I understand some bad calls as part of the game but today was just…shit).
Btw - Tramon Williams can take a pay cut next year or go play for the vikes, he is not earning his money.

It is tough losing 2 straight both @GB. Both games need to be won but without a QB who has taken the reps each week it is tough. Not looking good for the Packers.

So who should start next week? I say let Tolzien start. I don’t like Wallace much and Tolzien at least made plays and has a strong arm. Either way things are looking bleak.

Funny to see you “troll” in to celebrate another Packer injury, agian. The funny thing is you didn’t even show up when the vikes won (or lost)!!! LMFAO. You are more excited about the Packers QB injuries then your own pathetic team winning! The vikes have 2 wins. That says more than enough about you and what type of have you are… or should say are NOT. Loser!
You want to go “Bwaaa-Haaahaahahaha” at the Packers? Go ahead, your team is pathetic any BS you spouted in the offseason make you look like more of an ass. The vikings are in a first place tie for the most pathetic disappointing team in the NFL! Tied with the Falcons. Maybe that is why you show up now, to make yourself feel better about your entire organization being a joke.

WHy does Tramon WIlliams have a fricking job! Never mind take a pay cut,CUT HIS ASS!
2 bomb TD as T.W miss played both of them and the 3 TD ( bomb)was a horribly throw ball that Cooper made a nice adjustment on,a nd MD Jennings didnt.
Yes,Scott Tolzien made 2 very bad INT ,costing GB a shot at a short FG and setting Philly up for another ( which they missed anyway).I feel more confident with Tolzien then Wallace.
Sad to lose both EDS and Barclay as Lang at Center ( prob shouldnt have played today) the rookie Lane Taylor at RG ( P.S. player for the most part but will gain experience) and Marshall Newhouse at RT isnt real impressive so far,but, losing EDS and Barclay didnt help, giving up 3 long TD ( thanks to TW on 2 of them).Well, then Green Bay will HAVE to beat NY next week and then beat Minn and a 7-4 going into Det on Thanksgiving and thanks to Jay Cutler and his stellar record vs teams with a winning record,at least GB caught a break on that one,stay with Det,beat them on Thanksgiving ( if Rodgers is back),but, thats a lot to ask right now as the defense has played shitty 2 weeks straight now.
A Viking fan bragging on Green Bay after disappearing for weeks as the big mouth shot his shit about Minn.winning teh division and is pulling off a stellar 2-7 record is a joke and its not over by a long shot,but, GB has to beat NYG on the road ( when NY has played very well vs GB the last few years) and a win over Minn gets them that 2-1 record w/o Rodgers going into Thanksgiving. Tolzien came in cold vs Philly ( who is 5-1 on the road!! Great for them,imagine if they could win at Home?) and I think ( besides 2 bad INT's which im sure he will learn from)he did a pretty good job for the most part and Now HE has a week to plan for NY who is 2-5 but has won a few straight now and is starting to play better football ( now that it is the 2nd half of the season once again) but NY is a must win if they want a shot at the division title and or a playoff spot.
