I held out some remote hope that some of the talk that he was burned out and potentially ready to step aside was true, but knew this was the likely outcome.

Of course, I'm disappointed. While others are celebrating the fact we might now win more division titles, I cringe knowing we'll likely never sniff another SB under Aaron. A shame. Just a shame. 3 straight years of playoff failure, two ending in embarrassing fashion. The D is terrible and has been for several years while Ted Thompson pumps high pick after high pick into it. Not sure what he did to earn an extension...the SB honeymoon is long since over but I may be downplaying the idea that many fans were still reveling in the Bart Starr days during the entire 70's and 80's so the one in '10 will likely keep fans placated for a few more decades. Truly bummed.




Poor us making it to the playoffs every year. I fail to see what fucking team wins it every year and who that GM is who we can replace Ted with him.

That's the issue... you think Ted Thompson is responsible for why we're in the playoffs every year. It's because we have the best QB in football... the team with the best QB in the NFL SHOULD be in the playoffs EVERY year.

You could say Ted Thompson gets credit because he drafted Aaron, however, he's coasted on that and has completely FAILED to add around him properly especially on D.

It truly amazes me the kudos Ted Thompson gets on the back of Aaron Rodgers. If you're the star employee at your place of business your boss also gets the credit, but you and the others who work with you and anyone who is actually paying attention knows it ain't your boss carrying the place...it's YOU. Aaron is the star employee and Ted Thompson is the boss. Just sad how little some get it.

Aaron goes down and this team can barely hang with the dregs of the NFL. And I do mean barely. Yes, most teams who lose their starting QB aren't anywhere near as good, but we were horrible when he went out... that should clue you in to what a wonderful job Ted Thompson has done building this team. Aaron Rodgers covers a multitude of sins.

And Aaron was one hell of a draft pick when you are sitting on a first ballot hall of famer with several good years still in him. But yeah, I'm sure to you, Rodgers just fell in his lap. But he still took him with many defensive needs.

To say he didn't fall in his lap would be a total mischaracterization of the situation. Go back and look at the ESPN broadcast of that moment. It was not a surprise whatsoever we took him. None. A potential 1st overall falls to 24 and your current QB has been carrying on about retiring. Yeah, that was a real tough call on TT's part. He did make it but let's not get crazy about what happened there.

How this team is going one and done in the playoffs and getting slapped around with the best QB in football 3 years in a row is the question you should be asking instead of lauding a GM for making a no brainer pick and riding him to the playoffs every year. Wow.

This team should be in the NFC Championship EVERY year, at least, not just the playoffs. Just not enough TEAM in Green bay. Just Aaron and a brutal defense that Ted Thompson has spent pick after pick after pick on to improve and it is STILL .... TERRIBLE. Yet, somehow, that is not TT's fault and he bears no responsibility for the playoff exits or the brutal defense. Cherry picking at it's finest. I honestly don't understand this joy over his extension...it's embarrassing, really.

Not too many MASH units make the NFCCG, Uffda. The Niners are chock full of Top 15 picks. I would rather be a playoff team every year than have a decade of fielding dog shit. The Packers can make a run at Super Bowl every couple of years if things fall right for them. Ted Thompson has a lot to do with that, whether or not you think it is true or not.

It is true but ONLY because of Aaron Rodgers. No other reason. None.

Why so many can't get their heads around that baffles me. I think they really do but just like celebrating things for the sake of celebrating because they know Ted Thompson was GM when we won one so this must be a good thing.

Enjoy the division titles and playoff failures...I'm almost certain that's what you're going to see over the next several seasons minus the fact we might be caught and passed by other teams in the division who are actually teams and not just fronts for their greatest of all time candidate QB.


EDIT: Thank you, Tom Silverstein! At least someone is noticing...

Green Bay — Only four teams in the National Football League have used a first-round pick in each of the last three seasons on a defensive player.

Only one of those teams has gotten almost nothing out of it.


---You can guess which one... Hint: He recently signed an unspecified multi year deal because he drafted Aaron Rodgers almost a decade ago.

Before you said the Packers would not sniff another SB as long as Ted Thompson was around now you are only "almost certain" I knew you would come around eventually.

No one knows the future... I would love to flash forward to the end of Aaron's career, and assuming we have no more SB appearances, what the take would be here? I think this has been touched on in the 17 page Ted Thompson thread but I really do. What excuses would be made, then, or would any be made? I have a feeling that the general consensus would be that "at least we got one" and "it's hard winning a championship, so we should be thankful"...yes, true, but a waste of what could've been. Why wait until then when you can see what's likely coming.

Why celebrate being "good"... greatness is just something that is not gunned for but is unexpected and a bonus? We have a "chance"... Man, Dumb and Dumber right through my mind.

The sad thing is we'll likely never get to see what another GM would've built around the greatest of all time. We'll just have to wonder what could've been.

I am confused. Do you mean those 3 other teams in the NFC North that were handed the division on a silver platter last year, but were still unable to win the division at a measly 9-7? Those "actual" teams?
