The Packers are in a sticky situation, not because of the what if with Favre, but because of the player Favre was. You want that type of player on your team, but he leaves a pretty big void once he is gone. I've never been a huge GB fan, but I have always admired Brett Favre. I will be watching with a great deal of intrest to see how they cope post Favre.
The question is, do you think they will look for another QB in FA or the draft in case Rodgers fails?
I've touched upon this with my contention that Favre's keeping the Packers in limbo. 2 things are going on with the Packers.
1. They draft regardless of what Brett Favre does in 2008.
2. They draft knowing that Brett Favre is an emergency unretiree.
For the Packers sake, I hope they are 100% onboard with drafting regardless of Brett Favre. I can't see the Packers drafting a QB, regardless of what happens with Favre. I can't remember off the top of my head if David Carr is available, but it wouldn't surprise me if he is available if he ends up a Packer. In 2008, the Packers will quickly learn if Aaron Rodgers is their next franchise QB or not, but I don't think they draft a QB to light a fire under him. They'll get a QB, and that player will come via FA.
