Anti....if you agree that no one had heard of Rodgers, you should stop posting as well.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

Cadillac over Aaron Rodgers. The supporting cast in 05, 07 and 08 was more than good enough to win a Super Bowl.

i completely disagree on this one. nobody had ever heard of aaron rodgers when he came out.

Duuuuude..... stop posting!!!

The safer bet would be to roll the dice on the QB.  A RB better be AP, Jim Brown, and Gayle Sayres all rolled into one, before drafting him top 10.

i completely disagree on this one. nobody had ever heard of aaron rodgers when he came out. cadillac was a star at auburn and rodgers was some guy at Cal. im a college football nut and i never heard of rodgers til he took over for favre. theres no way anyone could have known how good he would be. he rode the pine for 3 years before doing anything

hindsight is 20/20 but give me a break

THANK YOU, you just proved my point with Mark Barron. Even if the guy is Ed Reed or Ronnie Lott or even Kenny Easley a Safety is never a top 10 pick. Especially when second and third round picks can put up his numbers.

Anybody who thinks Rodgers would have been what he is now had we drafted him is wishful thinking. No way would Rodgers be what he is. Green Bay gave him he chance to learn from one of the best, have better coaching and play in a system more suited for him with better weapons. Cadillac did not live up to the draft status but this franchise has so many of them how is anybody gonna single out a guy who gave everything for this franchise. Hate the guy all you want but gimme his heart all day long.


Agree, but I would add, a RB is not good value that high in the first.  No matter who he is.

Considering we spent a  high 1st rounder on 1 safety , and then big money in free agency on another safety , safety seems to be much more important to OUR style of defense than your broad generalization seems to give it credit for.....

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

How is this not a hands down answer of Bo Jackson?  Sure we have had other miscues in the draft (that might be an understatement).  But to use the #1 overall draft pick on a player who said he wouldnt sign...and then didnt.  Complete waste of that pick.  At least with all the busts we have had, they showed up and we got something out of them.  Not to watch them be a superstar for another team a year later.

Every time I see last post JC5100, I have to click on it.... Pure comedy.

It's tied for me:
Passing over Aaron Rodgers for Cadillac
Passing over Adrian Peterson for Gaines Adams

RIP Gaines, but of the two he was the bigger bust

Cadillac over Aaron Rodgers.

a mediocre RB over a future HOFer

Yea I'd have to agree, Rodgers is the guy that started the "embarassing slide" on draft day, atleast the first that I can remember. He was considered a top 5 pick  and  they cut to him after every pick he wasn't selected. It was awkward to watch.

Mostly every pick during the Gruden era. Williams over Rodgers, Adams over Peterson are the biggest 2.

I will throw in Michael Clayton over Steven Jackson, maybe not the biggest but it was a head scratcher considering we needed a RB.

Keith McCants over Junior Seau or Emmitt Smith in the first round of the 1990 Draft.

Eric Curry over  Willie Roaf or  Lincoln  Kennedy in the 1993 draft

There have been so many its is numbing to think of the possibilities, that could have been.

This award goes to the Bo Debacle period.  THere isn't anything in NFL history that matches it, let alone franchise history.  Although the Eli/Rivers draft was close for drama, it never met the Bo fail.


As for the "nobody heard of Rodgers" crap, welll,.... crap.  One of the main reasons I felt Favre was scum was how he **CENSORED**ed them around after he decided not to retire after they just drafted his replacement.  Rodgers wan't some mid-round maybe like Myron Lewis, he was a guy who was ready to go.
