It looks like they won't re sign Ahman next year and it would be a good idea for them to start getting building blocks. Aaron Rodgers and Reggie Bush would be a great basis for the future.
I agree that their only glaring holes are at the G spots - but that sentiment really doesnt tell the whole story. The only true talent they have is at LT in Clifton. The rest of the guys are average linemen at best - none of them are that good. Even Flanangan is clearly on the downslope of his career and will need to be replaced soon.
Unless GB gets the #1 pick (which they wont - GB still has 2-3 wins in them this yr), they wont be able to land Bush - and with that said - why not try and land Ferguson to play RT? Some of the best top 10 draft picks over the last decade have been Olinemen: Robert Gallery, Mike Williams, Kyle Turley, John Tait, Orlando Pace, Walter Jones.
Besides, Ts become Gs and learn new positions pretty regularly (Klemm) - Wouldnt it be wise to get as much talent on your Oline as possible considering thats the weakest/least talented part of your team? I can also see GB going after a Dlinemen - either DT or DE with their early pick. Point is - I would be amazed if GB ended up w Reggie Bush in 2006.
Also - Kensat - you are wrong about Favre - he'll return next yr - watch.
