FoxSports: Pack Not Going to Grab a Veteran QB

The following comes from Adam Schein at Fox Sports:

Packers coach Mike McCarthy told us on Friday that the team is not in the market for a veteran quarterback.

This is Aaron Rodgers’ team and he will be backed up by two neophytes in Brian Brohm and Matt Flynn. Brohm is a perfect fit in McCarthy’s system.

Even sans Brett Favre, the Packers remain the most complete team in the NFC North.

And you just get the feeling from talking to people around the team the 2008 Packers aren’t exactly thrilled that they have to deal with a Brett Favre retirement ceremony on the night they usher in the Rodgers era.

  1. Yeah, I thought it was strange to retire Brett’s jersey on the first game, too, but whatever works for everyone involved, I guess. I thought it might be a distraction for the players and I didn’t think Favre would want to do it then, either. I figure he would want to stay away for awhile and then do it later in the season or something. That being said, I’m ok with it if everyone involved is. It’s going to be a nationally televised game, as it should be, so it will get a lot of exposure for all of the Favre fans, everywhere.
