I'm thinking personnel moves here...but you can speak of other things, too. The only requirement is admitting where you have been wrong about the Packers in some way. Here are mine (not ranked):

1. Re-signing Cletidus Hunt was a good idea.
2. Drafting Nick Collins was dumb.
3. Trading for a third string Atlanta quarterback was a dumb move.
4. The Packers had no chance of signing Reggie White.
5. Thinking LeShon Johnson should have been drafted by the Pack in the first round.

1. Taking that steroids OT over Barry Sanders, Deion Sanders, or Derek Thomas (THREE Hall of Famers taken immediately after M*nd*****).

1. Thinking that taking "Boydarich" was a fantastic idea.
2. Giving up a first round pick for a QB who was taken in the 2nd round and sat on his rear his whole first year was a horrible move.
3. Thinking GB had no shot at getting White.
4. Thinking they spent way too much money on a DE who was past his prime.
5. Believing Rich Campbell would be a stud QB for GB for a decade.

Those coaches ruined Rich Campbell.

1: Hiring Forrest Gregg
2: Drafting Mandarich
3: Drafting Brent Fullwood
4: Anthony Dilweg, 4B: Robbie Boscoe
5: Hiring Ray Rhodes without interviewing him.

Don Horn would effectively replace Bart Starr
Rich Campbell would be good
Giving a #1 for Brett Favre was bad
Forrest Greg would win championships
Tony Bennett was a bad #1 pick

1. Excited that Forrest Gregg was named the football coach.
2. Being skeptical about a cat that came into Green Bay overweight and followed it up with two seasons of injuries. Went on to help form maybe the best front four in Packers history.
3. Pissed about a draft pick from South Carolina in 1988.. Braatz was an idiot again. DOH.
4. A first round pick for a party boy from South Mississippi. Didn't mind the trade, just thought we overpaid.
5. The Package of picks to acquire Clay Matthews was too much.. yeah.. that was a brilliant call upon my part.

(1.) I concluded that Hazer was a jack ass and would never support Aaron Rodgers. I was wrong I consider Hazer a friend and he has several Rodgers jerseys.

(2.) I concluded that Justin Harrell was a future H.O.F. pick. Even named our new puppy "Justin" after the 2007 draft. (Our new puppy injured himself two days after we got him, and we had to put him down.)

(3.) I concluded that it was a huge mistake to let Holmgren go and thought the Packers should give him total control as G.M and anything else he wanted. (See Cleveland Browns)

(4.) I concluded that Ted Thompson was God. (Oh shit.. cancel that I was right.)

(4. a) I concluded it was time to move on from Coach Mike early in their Super Bowl year. I thought the team had tuned him out.

(5.) I concluded that Favre would eventually screw the Packers. (Oops, I was right again.. never mind.)

(5. a) When I first joined the old newspaper Packer forum that eventually led me here to Packershome.. I was convinced my AFC Raiders would win two more Super Bowls before my NFC Packers won one more.

Hey I just thought of another mistake or two on my part. I thought Mike M was a little too young and inexperienced to be truly effective as a HC. While I didn't scream and lament Ted's choice I was more than a little skeptical of the selection. He track record as an OC wasn't stellar. I thought a franchise with the tradition of GB would be able to acquire someone with more experience and name recognition.

Likewise I had my concerns when Ted was selected as the GM. I thought he could do the job. I just wondered how long it would take him to get up to speed and how good of a GM he would turn out to be.

Jury's still out on Mike McCarthy far as I'm concerned.

Not so with Ted.

well he will not be considered a complete failure since he has a SB to his credit. He also is no longer a young and inexperienced HC. you may not like him but all my concerns proved unfunded.

uffda udfa (1h) : Nope. I like Gus.
beast (2h) : Did you want Anthony Lynn as HC? Cushion Bradley was going to follow Lynn where ever.
uffda udfa (3h) : Gus Bradley is new DC in SD/LA. I would've loved to had him here in Green Bay.
uffda udfa (7h) : It's just fine.
musccy (7h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (7h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (8h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (8h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (8h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (9h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (9h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (9h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (13h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (13h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (14h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (14h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (14h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (16h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (16h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (16h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (16h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (16h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (17h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (18h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (18h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (18h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (18h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (18h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (18h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (19h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (19h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (21h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
