If a player, per this organization is expected to have a big 2nd year jump, one must conclude they aren't in much of a position to be impactful in year 1.

The sad defense of Ted Thompson by the brainwashed fans is beyond compare. Greg Jennings was right about brainwashing in Green Bay but it's the fans, not the players in the org. Ted Thompson could cut the entire roster after this season and add 7 draft picks and 46 UDFA's and you would be on here talking about how that was really a win now strategy because Shields, Bakhtiari and Lacy worked out.

I'll take your wonderful examples and turn them on you...How has drafting the SAFETY position under the WIN NOW philosophy worked for us? How about a backup QB? How about the spot opposite Clay? How about the entire defense as a whole...how many former 1's are on this D, not including Peppers who wasn't a Packers pick under TT? Jones, Perry, Hawk, Dix, Raji, Matthews... SIX #1's and 7 if you count Peppeers.

We were beyond fortunate that Sam Shields was what he turned out to be...that is a rare thing that is not to be counted on. Bakhtiari was overrated and didn't grade out as well as you might think... he was okay. For every Lacy you can speak of a Brandon Jackson and Alex Green. Two guys who never developed that have us in a position to use yet another high pick. I would hope after drafting the same position with total failure after total failure you could hit on one eventually. The odds don't favor it. Packer draft history doesn't favor it.

I should NOT be surprised that a post like this would be made. It just illustrates how little understanding some have of the actual nature of a topic. Go look at the subject and the little liner underneath. Who didn't think this was coming? No one. The whole point of the topic was...Do YOU WANT IT TO HAPPEN. I didn't...most did.

The word is they're printing the divisional championship hats and t-shirts for 2014, already, now. Puke

For comparison sake, Packers have just 5.

Yep we have been down that road a thousand times.


31 is too many and should be considered a failure. 5 is too few especially when the next lowest is 15. Uncle Teddy is smarter than most GMs but he can't be right all the time. Having 10-12 in key places would make the team a whole lot more competitive than just 5.

That's actually up from a few years back. I think I recall one year it was only three (maybe even just 2) not sure which year it was but within the last 3 or 4 I think.

I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.
