so currently Green Bay has 4 QBs on their roster. Aside from the Mississippi Diva, there is Aaron Rodgers (Cal), Brian Brohm (Louisville), And Matt Flynn (LSU).

One of these guys has to get cut, right? How do the rules work for claiming someone who they are trying to send to the practice squad?

Our roster has Huard taking up space. So, why not grab whoever is the odd man out?

Well the only one that will likely get cut is Flynn. No chance on Brohm or Rodgers. None whatsoever.

yep, they wont be able to get Flynn or Brohm through waivers. Why keep 4 QB
s? Probably get one for a 6th or 7th rounder. Those are always gambles anyway.

The player is placed on waivers and teams have 24hrs to put a claim in for that player. If more than one team puts in a claim the team with the worst won-loss record from the previous season gets the player. The player's previous contract transfers to the new team.

Although I don't think Flynn has much to offer in the NFL, I'd take him over Huard.

Yep, especially hearing that he has fallen off considerably. We don't need an aged vet to lead our rooks. We need a young QB to learn along with our rooks.

Farve is not going to play for the Pack this year. He will be traded, probably to the Vikings.

Farve wants to be named the starter and refuses to practice until that time. This is a game of chicken, and Farve is forcing Ted Thompson to let him walk or trade him to the Vikings. This is also why they hired Ari Fliecher, they are going to have to call Farve out on his antics. Its going to get a lot worse folks. Green Bay simply things a 26 year old Aaron Rogers is better than a 39 year old Bret Farve.

There is no way they're trading him to a team in the division no way...

The Pack is in a pickle. Unless Farve re-retires they have to play him, trade him or release him. If I want Farve I wait another week to see if he comes cheeper because there's no way the Pack can keep him now.

I enjoy how Favre is being a douchebag about all of this....either way the last thing they should do is give him what he wants.

They don't have to play him. If they chose to, they could tell him to ride pine.

Rogers is only 24 with 3 years in the system. As I have said before, I think he has a bright future. He is going to impress some people.
