In your view is Aaron Rodgers the hope for the Packers faithful during the post-Favre era? If so, please explain why. - Jared, Atlanta, Ga.

Jared: Any time you're the team's No. 1 pick in the draft, you better be the guy of the future. Rodgers will have every opportunity to take over when Favre retires. I like his confidence and leadership skills. You can tell that he will be a guy that his teammates will respond to in a positive manner. I wish him luck.

Do you think KGB could be a greater asset to the team if he were used as a linebacker rather than a defensive end? It appears his speed is pretty well negated by even average offensive tackles. - Jack, Avon, Ind.

Jack: KGB is a great speed rusher. He sometimes has difficulties with big offensive tackles versus the run. The Packers will continue to game plan and use schemes that best suit his talents. I don't think he will ever be used as a linebacker.

With Javon Walker, Ahman Green, Najeh Davenport, and Samkon Gado back in 2006, will the Packers be more of a contender to go to the playoffs? - Toua, Wausau, Wis.

Toua: Unfortunately all these players are going to be recovering from serious injuries that they suffered this year. If they are all healthy for next year, it would give the Packers a great deal of depth at the running back position. This would certainly increase their chances for a playoff run.
