Green Bay Packers Quarterbacks -Training Camp-

Aaron Rodgers looks sharp, despite the lack of practice time this year.  He has to be considered among the leagues elite quarterbacks.  He is in the Drew Brees category, just above guys like Phillip Rivers and Matt Ryan, and just below guys like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.  The factor that really boosts him up is his age.  He is younger than Manning and Brady, thus if I was choosing a dream QB to lead my team I would choose Rodgers over anybody right now.

Matt Flynn is in the final year of his contract, and I suspect he will be somewhere else next year.  He has starting quarterback written all over him, someone will pay him starters money, and there is no way the Packers will be able to afford him as a back up.  Some have suggested trading him first, but after Rodgers suffered two concussions last season I would lean toward keeping him around as security against the possibility that Rodgers may miss some time again this season.

Graham Harrell is your typical third stringer.  He shows promise and is an excellent QB.  His physical limitations may preclude him from ever being an elite prospect, but he is a damn good football player with an excellent college resume.

I have only two concerns with this years crop of QB’s.  The first is Rodgers concussion history.  My concern there is more for him than the team.  The team can survive him missing a game or two, I just hope the problem does not linger and threaten the young man’s long term health.  The second is the lack of a developmental QB on the roster.  With Flynn set to leave this year, I would like see a QB on the practice squad.

2008 NACS / PEI Show in Chicago

Krueger Sentry Gauge is home and doing post trade show work.  The show was a resounding success.  We had a new booth this year, and we were showing off our new product.  The LED At A Glance.  I would like to thank all of the current and new customers for stopping by and saying hello, we appreciate all of your support.

I also attended the PEI Young Executive Round Table discussions.  I have been a member of the Young Executives for some years now.  (Five years, I think)  For those of you in the PEI Industry between the ages of 21-45, this group is an excellent way to meet others in the industry and share ideas and practices to the benefit of all.  I have developed friendships that go beyond business and I highly recommend this group to anyone in the industry that fall into the criteria.
