    Really? Has the front office not learned from last year’s fiasco with Aaron Rodgers being hurt and out for so long that we need a second to the back-up QB position? They just keep throwing roadblocks for everyone to overcome and one year it won’t happen, then the fans won’t be the only ones singing the blues!

      Umm—-Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien? That makes three quarter backs…so there is a “second to the back-up QB position”….Don’t think we are shallow at that position.
