  1. I saw Lock at camp his rookie year and it was embarrassing the way he played. Couldn’t make the correct reads and complete a ball in 7 on 7. Even with that, I do agree that he has tools, enough that if his mind caught up he could be a franchise caliber QB. Lock has not been good in Denver and I think he’s immature. With that, I’d have went with him in a tied competition with Teddy. If I’m Paton/Fangio I’m rolling with the upside for the initial 3-4 games and evaluating from there. So this isn’t like I didn’t want Lock to win the job. Everyone with any sense should’ve wanted Lock
  2. He’s played on 18 games. Completed less than 60% of his passes. Thrown for less than 4000 yards. 23 TDs to 18 INTs with a below 50 QBR. That’s a bad QB. What evidence do you have that he’s good other than you want him to bang your sister?
  3. So much progress that he couldn’t do enough to beat out Teddy Bridgewater? Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater were 2 of the worst starters in the NFL last year. Denver put them in a QB competition and looking at it, neither did enough to outright win. Denver went into default mode and picked the guy they think is the safer player even though it could be easily argued that Lock slightly won the competition. The only way this looks like a win for Denver is if one of them had taken the reigns and dominated camp…..neither did. If you are for Teddy it’s because he’s smarter with the foo
  4. Drew Lock sucks. The fact that Teddy Bridgewater couldn’t hands down win the job shouldn’t be seen as encouraging.
  5. I honestly don’t care either way. I don’t think either is the future. So I don’t think Teddy is the QB this team needs and I don’t think it’s Lock either. It just has the feel that this wasn’t truly a competition. When they added Teddy should’ve just stated he was the starter and it would take him completely imploding or Lock playing SIGNIFICANTLY better than him to get the job. As for the media, it’s all I really have to go on. From them it seemed no one separated themselves, but overall Lock was the slightly more productive player throughout camp. It’s more of a spirit o
  6. I don’t think either are the answer as well. What concerns me is from what I’ve gathered on social media it doesn’t seem like Teddy won. Many in the media thought Lock and performed Teddy. Allbright said from players he had spoken with that they thought Lock won the battle. As UK stated watching the last preseason game, it is as if the staff was going out of its way to make sure Teddy won the job. It didn’t even work and yet they still named him starter. That’s what’s concerning.
  7. You don’t even know who Rick Dennison is.
  8. He very well could be, but, in my opinion, it’s if GB makes moves/decisions that Rodgers is requesting.
  9. But he dictates where that value is. That’s what you aren’t grasping. They’ll get value no matter what. But the Packers won’t be trading him to the damn Bears for 25 straight 1st round picks because Rodgers would never go there. You’re a Packers fan. I get it. I honestly hope the Packers just don’t trade him and set a precedent, but your organization has no leverage. Again, the best they can do is our if spite not trade him, which hurts themselves.
  10. If he is it’s because the Packers accommodated him. Which is a win for Rodgers and the Packers. Trading him for multiple 1s and young players is a win for Rodgers and the Packers. The losing scenario for the Packers, and the one I’ve heard most from Packers fans is just don’t trade him….that’s the spite scenario where the Packers are the biggest losers, maybe the biggest in NFL history.
  11. Very different situations. Favre retired and came out of retirement because he wanted to play football. He was also traded for a conditional pick. Aaron Rodgers appears content not playing football. All he has to say is I’m not playing for x team and no one is going to give up multiple 1s and young players for Rodgers unless he is 100% fully committed to playing for that team. I’ve stated this before, but Rodgers has all the leverage. He doesn’t come across as someone who is bluffing. 1. He seems content not playing football, so if GB refuses to trade him out of spite Rodger
  12. All the more reason to get Rodgers. Denver has a good OL, terrific weapons at RB, WR, TE, and a defense that on paper could be top 5-8 in the league. Rodgers gives Denver a chance at winning the SB. Lock/Bridgewater under center guarantees Denver won’t be competing for a SB.
  13. This is why I don’t think Denver is done at QB. This is a talented roster capable of winning a SB at every position…….except QB. Rodgers or Watson (if we are putting the legal stuff aside) instantly makes Denver a SB contender for at minimum the next 3 years. Lock and Bridgewater make this team mediocre and probably missing the playoffs. I don’t know if the word “fun” is what I would consider a year like we are looking at if it’s Lock/Bridgewater under center, the word for me would be frustrating watching a talented team finish with a mediocre record.
  14. People with his amount of money have memberships at golf clubs in numerous cities across the country. Green Bay Country Club is also relatively cheap compared to others and I read annual dues are $7k and initiation fee is $4,500. For a comparison The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs has an initiation fee over $50k. Basically, I don’t view this as a sign he might return. He’s probably been a member there for many years and will continue to be.
  15. From what I’ve gathered it sounds like Teddy was easily the front runner in mini camp. This isn’t surprising for me. Lock’s a gunslinger who doesn’t process the game very well. Bridgewater lacks talent, but takes care of the football. I like Teddy, but if he’s your starting QB it means you need a QB. I know it’s getting closer and closer to the start of the season, but I can’t help but think Denver is still in the market for a QB. If they aren’t then Paton and the franchise had no real vision in being competitive in 2021.
  16. I’ll end up getting used to it, but not a fan of the number changes in the NFL. Saw Surtain will wear #2. Hamler moving to #1.
  17. I don’t particularly care for Rodgers the person. There’s always 2 sides to every story, but there’s enough out there to know he’s a donkey. As a football player he’s a HOFer who seems capable of playing at that level for the next 3-5 years. He will likely go down statistically in the top 3-5 of every QB category. Even if Denver gave up 4 1st round picks, Jeudy, Chubb, and Surtain (it won’t cost that much) Denver would still be a top 5 favorite to win the SB with Rodgers at QB. My biggest concern is it’s not a long term solution. I doubt Lock would stick around as he’s going
  18. Definitely possible. You follow him closer than I do, but from my perspective he seems like the type that if he’s done, he’s done. This is the same guy who has cut off family members, friends, and teammates. He’s supposedly hyper sensitive to criticism and slights. I think drafting Love round 1 started it and then not putting the ball in his hands with the game on the line ended it. From my perspective Rodgers seems like the exact type capable of giving GB 2 middle fingers and never playing another down of football again unless he gets what he wants either in GB or in a trade. Again,
  19. Yeah, I just don’t see that. At the end of the day if Rodgers is back playing for GB it’s because the organization has more than likely caved in someway. They made concessions to get Rodgers back, which again is where he holds all the cards. Don’t get me wrong. I hope GB has the cajones to hold their ground and say you either come play for us or you retire. I don’t think QBs deciding they want to leave and then holding organizations hostage is good for the game. However, the above stance of you’re with us or you’re out is one more out of spite (which by loads of reports is
  20. I’ll also add. As a Bronco fan I want Rodgers. He instantly makes Denver a top 5 team in the NFL......but I can’t stand Aaron Rodgers the person. He’s an absolute clown and has been and is one of the most selfish athletes in sports and that’s saying something. My wife’s side of the family are mostly Packer fans and I’ve told them this for years and get hammered for it. All of a sudden they all agree. Good thing for Denver or any team trading for him he’s so near the end of his career entering a new organization that he can’t ruin the system the way he has in GB.
  21. No one knows what this deal could look like. Broncos fans want it to lean in their favor and Packers fans want it in theirs, as @CWood21 has shown. At the end of the day it really comes down to if Rodgers is willing to go to multiple teams that can start a bit of a bidding war. As much as Packers fans don’t want to admit it. Aaron Rodgers holds all the cards. They’ll get what Rodgers allows and by that, if he hasn’t zeroed in on 1 team. The entire, “the starting point is X” from the Packers is laughable. The Packers aren’t calling the shots. Rodgers is and I don’t even ag
  22. The Packers have had 29 straight years of Hall of Fame QB play and only appeared in 3 SBs. The only way I can explain it is that has to be the worst well managed organization in sports, maybe even in sports history.
