Could you imagine if the Vikings had to pay Rodgers and all the other Viking players too? I hear with the guys they got they are about 5 mil over the cap.

Good thing they draftede Troy Scissorshands and Urasmus James instead of drafting Rodgers when they could have! Just think either of those fab picks in 2005 could have resulted in this horrible horrible problem the Packers have!:)
Too bad:(

No quarterback is worth a billion dollars.The bionic man.Youre right those drafts were awful.The Vikings are 6.913 under the salary cap.

we heard the Packers are on the decline last year before GB won the division and beat Minn 2 of 3 including playoffs.They arent in decline,in fact they are getting back a few younger guys from injuries.

Ya you won two of three with one game with Webb in who hadnt played.Now we have Jennings from you.Im not sold on James Jones and Jordy Nelson is getting pretty banged up.Plus you lost youre backup T.E. Tom Crabtree.The Packers have 4 picks through the first four rounds of the draft compared to the Vikings having 6.With Jennings and Simpson and Jarius Wright along with the probable two recievers we draft the Vikings are gonna start looking wicked on offense.Plus we may move Webb over to reciever and its possible Greg Childs could return.We could use Webb as reciever and then only carry two quarterbacks.The Packers almost for sure need to draft a running back and probably a center.That leaves two picks for probably a cornerback and linebacker.The Vikes will probably draft two cb and dt and ilb plus two recivers.The Packers have more needs than we do they are falling behind.

Besides Eric, Greg Jennings is gonna take our recievers under his wing and train them all.Jennings says that he thinks Ponder can make all the throws so we should be much improved.Im sure glad we have Jennings in purple and gold cause hes got lots of fuel left in the tank.

Ouch! Harrell was a pretty bad pick I agree (16th).
Brohm wasn't a first round pick (maybe 55 or something) so it is reaching to try and compare him to the 2 shleps the Vikes took instead of Rodgers.

Anyways I would rather have the problem of having to pay a player like Rodgers then trudge on with a QB like Ponder or Cuntler. Rodgers is worth money. I have not heard anyone (pundits) say his contract is going to destroy the Packers. I am sure Viking fans HOPE, WISH, and PRAY this big contract hurts the Packers, but right now it is only wishful thinking.

Jennings said he thinks Ponder can make all the throws! Wow. Well I guess that settles that then. Am sure Jennings would say he doesn't think Ponder can make all the throws if that was the case.:)

I agree Jennings should help the other WRs (nobody is afraid of Simpson btw)

Though I think Jennings will suffer much more without Rodgers throwing him the ball, then Rodgers suffering without Jennings at WR.

I agree with you that Jennings is a solid WR,no denying that for sure BUT,Jennings also put up those numbers with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers now he has Christian Ponder ( who ive gone on record several times stating he will be a solid qb) t thats quite a drop off i think you would agree.Jennings also hasnt played a complete season in a few seasons and in GB he had plenty of help with Nelson,Jones,Cobb ect,,Jennings is the main man now,SO, that will be determined.As for Tom Crabtree,I liked the guys and wished we kept him as hes a good blocker but hardly a difference maker,they just signed a TE from STL who is a bigger,stronger, and more athletic version of Tom,so again not a difference maker either way.You talk about GB beating you with Joe Webb,they also beat Ponder and Peterson in the playoffs and thats without Nick Perry,Desomond Bishop,DJ Smith,Terrell Manning and a banged up Charles Woodson ( who cant find a job,so that tells the story right there).We will see but GB also missed very key players who will be back,time will tell

Youre incorrect on one point Eric.You didnt beat the Vikes in the playoffs with Ponder in 2012.It was Webb.What positions do you see the Packers picking.I think the best is yet to come with Ponder.Especially with some better recievers.I wonder how well Rodgers would do with Michael Jenkins and Aromashodu and Simpson..Just wondering.There alright as 2nd or 3rd recievers but not first.Hey Eric how do you see Detroit and Chicago stacking up this year.You would think Detroit would improve with all the first round draft picks they have on the team.The way I see it the Vikes are gonna give the Pack a real run for the division simply because of an improved offense over last year.I see Chicago struggling because of to many weaknesses on the offensive and defensive lines.Detroit I just dont know.They could be a surprise if they ever get a dominant runner.They put up plenty of yards passing but still manage to lose.Their just cursed I guess.

predicted order of finish in the NFC North (1) Detroit, adding Reggie Bush is huge; (2) Minnesota, already upgraded over last year and the draft hasn't started; (3) Green Bay, no O-Line, no running game, no speed on defense, and Mason Crosby (thanks TT); (4) Chicago

I like Ponder, he will be a pretty good qb...Chicago with that offensive minded coach will improve some of the oline,throw in a better TE,WR and their offense is much better,question is will the defense fall back? no depth ( we saw what happened when Urlacher got injured)I think they will be over 500 but not as good as GB or Minn.( like last year,they will smoke much lesser teams,but, go 1-3 vs GB and Minn or maybe 0-4 vs both)Detroit? who knows? i cant fiqure them out.the best front 7 around ( now they lost Avril so that may change), a good qb, the best WR in the league right now, decent TE play and they go 4-12 ( they lost to Minn because of special teams and may close) so they just may play closer to 500 would be my guest.There are always a team or 2 that blow away expectations and a team or 2 that play much below and Det just maybe that team to exceed it.
Packer Draft? I really dont know.There are many that make sense ( like many teams) Erik Reid Safety LSU.Arthur Brown LB K.State, RB from Alabama. Id love to see them trade up for Kenny Vaccarro S Texas,,i can see TT trade down since the talent level is pretty even from mid 1st to mid to lower 2nd round and we have seen TT success in mid round picks.Ive read where Reid may fall to 2nd but GB has a lower 1st so they may take him 10-15 picks early ( a bit of a reach,but if projected around 40,GB takes him at 26th, ive got no problem with that)at this point,we have pointed out several players over the past few weeks TT may pick,He likes BPA but GB needs a DE ( pass rusher)a nd we can use a quicker safety ( although Sean Richardson is playing this year,so that will help.Morgan Burnett improved a bit,hopefully he makes bigger strides next year) They may take a TE so Finley can go next year and free up cash to help the cap ( although Clay and Rodgers will prob. be front loaded).
Do you have any idea,opinions or picks of where Minn goes at 23 and 25? 2 1st are a great place to be but losing Percy Harvin may hurt if Jennings has another year of missing some games injured ( although Harvin did as well)

The wise thing the Vikings did was re-sign their strength, which is up the middle on both sides of the ball, especially on offense. I'm not sure what the thinking is at WR right now. I think Simpson will come along, but I think one of the things holding Ponder back is the outside-the-numbers guys (and now no Percy Harvin). You've seen how good Cassell is with no playmakers. That said, I would feel good about the toughness and youth you guys have--definitely building the right way and may pass the Bears on your way up. You could get a good receiver at either pick, maybe trade out of 25 for someone wanting to jump ahead of the QB derby in early round 2.
I'm fairly convinced we're drafting a LB in round 1, because the way the mock boards are lining up we should be able to grab Ogletree, A. Brown or Minter there and they'll probably be the best players available. I'd love to see a couple QBs get taken because then some big men would slip down, but I doubt it. I think we'll look to get those guys rounds 2-4, maybe a WR you've never heard of later on. etc.
I don't know what eric wants Morgan Burnett to do, but I hope he gets better too. He's already a top ten (NFL) tackler. Give him another nut ha. Can't wait for next week.

Morgan Burnett still has some room.I believe he can be as good as Nick Collins and heirs to hoping he will be

Hi Eric.Unless Cordarell Patterson slips to 23 I dont see the Vikes picking a reciever in either first pick seeing we have a second and third and two forths.I would say ilb and corner.Maybe Manti Te'o or Kevin Minter.At corner probably DeMarcus Milliner,or Desmond Trufant.

Hey B.P...Ive go no proof but i have a feeling theres going to be more then usual teams moving down ( really trying to ) since mid 1st to mid 2nd round talent is pretty level and of course depending on who can pull off a trade depends ( obviously) on whos drafted or there when we get our shots.NOW, why with such a level board from mid to mid would there be teams trading out? Why not trade a late 1st for an early to mid 2nd ( get basically the same value)AND grab an extra pick. Ive Read Eddie Lacy ( did he benefit from teh best Oline in college football,or is he a solid NFL type back?).Would it shock you to see Minn trading down with 1 of their 1st round picks? OR would it shock you to see Minn combine both and trade up to a top level pick and grab that 1 player?
TT used to trade down quite a bit,but, last year they traded up a few times,they traded the Favre ( NYJ) pick and their own to NE for NE pick and drafted Clay Mathews,SO TT has traded up and back in recent years
