Rodgers couldn't beat us so do we think Peyton would have won in SEA when he couldn't win in Met Life? Heck no! The future is here and it is Russ Kap Cam Luck and RG3?? Just don't pay em $20million annually and expect them to carry a team
As much as I respect Peyton, I'm glad we didn't surrender a good chunk of our cap to an un clutch 37 y.o QB who is one of the last of a dying breed of QBs (pure pocket passer, non existent mobility). Our defense would be significantly weaker, we'd probably be a soft, finesse team like the Broncos and those teams don't match up well with our NFC West opponents. Kap, Wilson, Cam, RG3, and Luck are here and here to stay. The dual threat QB is the future.
