Like some have said, the Packers have the personnel to be firmly in charge of the division in a couple of years. We need to find ourselves that Franchise QB of the future pretty soon. Someone that instills more confidence in the direction our offense is going than Aaron Rodgers.
Quinn hasn't showed that he's any better than Rodgers. Sure, he can pick apart poor defenses. But he's played poorly against top competition, which is what he'll face every week in the NFL. No way do we trade up to get someone who is not going to help this year, and is just as much of a question mark. Too many other holes to fill.
About the linebackers...I like where we're at with Barnett playing a solid all around game now, and Hawk with his rookie mistakes behind him. We play so much nickel, I think Poppinga is serviceable, although I'd like to upgrade if possible.
