    I betcha McCarthey is banging on TT's door daily trying to ensure he gets his RB back for the upcoming season.

    Rather than settle for the minimum $370,000 salary he's entitled as an exclusive-rights free agent, Grant desires a more lucrative, long-term deal before training camp commences in late July. In lieu of that, a camp holdout would be a possibility.
    lol...... got to love a guy that develops an ego.
    Yes, he played well, no one will take that away from him.
    Asking for a bigger contract? Understandable.
    Holding out? That would be complete bullshit imo.

    You're a young back that showed flashes of talent, but had huge holes opened up for you by a good O-Line and a scary starting QB, making the opposing D's worry more about the passing attack.


    Deserves to be paid... but probably not even close to as much as he's asking for

    I would love for the Packers to give Grant a big deal, because he aint that good.. Watch him trying to run the ball this year with his pro bowl QB.

    I hear all of you, however, I don't think Rodgers is gonna do/be all that bad.

    He has an arm, can read a defense, is very mobile etc etc.

    Sure there will be a drop off from Favreeees leaving but comeon guys, they will still be a decent team.
    Don't right them off as pushovers.

    One thing Rodgers has going for him is that no one has any film on him.
    He looked good versus Dallas for that reason.
    Once he has a few games under his belt, everything will change.
    Teams will know what his strengths and weaknsesses are, and will react accordingly.

    I think the Packers are in the drivers seat in the Division, but don't see them as a deep play-off contender due to the questions in Rodgers and Grant.
    Grant came in last season with teams not knowing what to expect...and suprised people.
    I don't think he'll do so this season.

    Will the Packers pay Grant?
    Depends on what he asks for.
    Will he be worth it?
    That's the big question.
    The Packtard hype says yes...I say, "Wait until teams look at film on him".
    Look what happened to Peterson - who has far more talent than Grant.
    Trams studied film on him and found ways to stop him (while Tarvaris Jackson and the Receiver corps stood helplessly by).

    I think that Grant and Rodgers will both be "fine"...but I don't see then turning the league on it's ear.

    i'm of the same opinion on this marrdro. it is beneficial to have a talented qb sit on your bench and learn your system with no pressure. he could come out and play very well. i hope not, but it is a good possibility. we were able to do the same with tommy, wade and brad, and they all played well when finally given their opportunity.
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    I like to have them sit, watch and learn but sometimes doing is the best teacher as well.

    What you have to watch when you do that is to make sure he doesn't get all messed up mentally from the rocky starts he will have.

    Ohhh, and you have to watch out for the fans that won't be happy that you are starting a kid cause of the rocky spots that WILL come with that growing process.
    ;D
