I agree that Indy does have more holes than Green Bay did, but Rodgers, while clearly not as hyped as Luk currently is, was thought to be good enough to go top-3, possibly even first overall, before the combine. Then he slid to 24, it was a freefall of Brady Quinn proportions. Rodgers was definitely hyped...
That being said, NOBODY is as hyped as Luck currently is. I was just drawing parallels of having a generational talent playing backup QB to a future Hall of Famer, and how it's not necessarily a bad thing.
