Happy New Year from Krueger Gauge

We hope everyone had a great holiday, and I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

A few quick facts from Wisconsin:

  1. We did not have a price change this year, but we did vastly improve our price book.  If you want one and don’t get one soon, let us know.
  2. The Green Bay Packers are 15-1 and heading to the Playoffs.  I would like to gloat that the Lions could not even beat us with our back up QB in the game, but that kind of bragging would be premature.  Much like Suh’s silly celebration during the game when he got a sack.  I will not stoop to such lows.  Our goal is the Super Bowl.
  3. The Wisconsin Badgers are in the Rose Bowl for the second straight year.  Win or Lose, it has been a great year for them.  I will be leaving work early today so as not to miss the game.
  4. The fax machine had over a hundred orders on it this morning after our week off.  After a strong 2011 it looks like 2012 is starting off pretty good.
  5. It was below zero this morning when I came into work.  Looks like winter is finally here.  For those of you in Florida and other warm locales, when you call and tell me about your 80 degree weather it just makes me mad…  So let’s just keep that to yourself…

Happy New Year to all from all of us at Krueger Sentry Gauge.

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.
