Default The grooming in Green Bay begins

Aaron Rodgers signs and reports. I would love to learn from Favre, but from a fans view it will be sad to see Brett's career come to an end.

But from a rival's standpoint it will be great! :nod2:

I'm glad it was Aaron Rodgers who fell to Green Bay because I think Alex Smith is going to be a bust a la David Klinger, Andre Ware, etc. Until New England took Logan Mankins with the 32nd pick, Smith was the weakest 1st rounder.

I think Alex Smith will have a rough go also, don't see San Fran getting any upper level WR's

I think Rodgers is going to be solid and learining from Favre won't hurt. it sure didn't hurt Mark Brunell or Aaron Brooks

Or Matt Hasselback and briefly Kurt Warner.

That's because they didn't have the talent. If he has the talent he will flourish.

Would tend to agree with you regarding Smith - the 49ers should have traded down and waited for Matt Leinart, who figures to be the next Peyton Manning, and without the apple in the throat.

Rodgers won't be thrown into the fire too soon, a la Eli Manning, IMO. Favre will be around at least two more years unless the Packers fail to make the playoffs.

I don't think Favre does much active teaching to his backups. He has an admirable approach to the game, and that might rub off to some extent. I love watching Favre play, but his mechanics and decisionmaking would be horribly suited for most QBs...
