Was giving him the big contract a gamble? Yes. But he still is one of the best QBs in the NFL. I for one am not in a hurry to return to the 1970s and 1980s, where we considered beating the Bears one game made it a good season.
The younger people on this site have no idea what it’s like to be long time losers. They are used to the Packers being competitive.
The chances of getting another great QB to follow Favre and Rodgers is slim at best.
Look at all the teams in the NFL that have drafted QB after QB, HOPING to get one that would be their franchise QB, only to have another bust.
We have been so fortunate.
We just had 2 bad seasons. Imagine having that for the next 20 or so years.
If he plays like he did last year, it will be closer to 1985 than 2010.
Fortunately Murphy hired a guy who made a Pro Bowler out of Rookie RBGIII, and also exhibited his skillset elsewhere, to salvage the rest of Aaron's career.

Well done KRK. I am going to up my game and call Rourke, Dr NSD. My brother, by the way, hates it when I call him, "😉r Scott" in non formal occasions. Sometimes I do it just to piss him off a little. Mainly because I can. Other times I am trying to give him credit for his efforts.

You can have an opinion as to whether it was a mistake or not (I don't have an opinion one way or the other at this point) but no one can say for sure. We probably won't know for another 2 years at the very least and probably more. In fact we may not be able to say one way or the other until Aaron is done. If we win another SB with Aaron Rodgers then the answer will probably be no it wasn't a mistake. If we come close but can't pull it off then the answer is probably maybe and if we fail to make the playoffs or be a serious contender because AR's cap numbers prevent us from putting talent around him then the answer will most likely be yes it was a mistake. As it stands though no one can answer that question.

True, Sschind. The only way we will know if it was good or bad will be how the Packers do from here on out.
It’s easy for us to throw out opinions, but we aren’t the ones that will take the heat or the accolades depending on how it turns out.
I’m glad they signed him long term.
If it blows up, so be it.
I’d rather have it this way then having to worry each year whether or not Aaron Rodgers will be our QB.
If they pick up on defense (not allowing score after score) and our 2nd year WRs grow as they should, we should have a strong team and shot at a championship.
JMO of course.
