He should be fired. He is not doing the proper blend of repairing holes with veteran talent coupled with wise draft choices.


His drafting is fine. It is his apparent stubborness to stick to that as basically his only choice that makes me want him gone.

He is LATE in his choices if that is his philosophy. If he is all about the draft, he is LATE MOST OF THE TIME.

Capers can hit the fucking trail also.

We have been squandering Rodgers talent and low cap number/salary and it has been pissing me off. Younger viewers are used to awesome QB talent. Me, I will always remain concerned, and imo, rightfully so. It is a PARTY to build a team around a QB vs. building a QB around a team. Ted is FAILING US, imo

...and I like Ted. [palm]


He signs FAs, it's that that they are his own FAs.

As for squandering Aaron's talent, Aaron, like his predecessor, can take responsibility for much of that.

Ted has definitely screwed the pooch because there should be more hardware in the trophy case. But Ted isn't making this team soft, that blame lies on our Pillsbury doughboy coach. I don't care what kind of offensive genius he is, this team gets beat at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball and that shit can't happen. There has been more than enough talent to get it done, it just hasn't happened.

Nonsense- Give Aaron Rodgers a superior line and N O ONE could defend it. IT ISN'T THAT HARD if you dip into free agency wisely.



Aaron Rodgers has been playing behind SHIT. We can't even run the friggin' ball with an MVP QB.

Any IDIOT can see that Rodgers is going to cost us a FORTUNE, the most ever, right? Yes? which means MANY players will be lost on both offense and defense...

I don't like getting beat on the line of scrimmage. It defines my team. I will not even admit we ARE getting beat on the line of scrimmage, but IF WE ARE, I want HEADS. I want the plumber/toilet guy, I want Murphy, Thompson, the toll-taker, EVERYONE. W H Y would the Green Bay Packers allow themselves to get beat at the line of scrimmage when they have had a cheap QB that is awesome, for example?


Why?


Ted Thompson runs this thing, last time I checked.

If we lose players, we need players to replace them.

Drafting guys who can play is much cheaper than bidding for them.

That said, maybe if Aaron didn't have 8 seconds to hold onto the ball waiting for someone to come open deep, he'd run a more efficient offense. Not that the line is great, but it's not the reason we were eliminated from the playoffs.

This argument is about Ted. What if we had a great running threat? What if we had a book-end to Clay? I don't think at least trying to achieve those objectives was out of line for last year.

Now we are going to lose more players, going to wait more for Ted to replace them, plus we gotta do the Aaron deal this year, which I HOPE TO CHRIST Ted was thinking about last year, though we have no indications he was- and wonder why we cannot relive the 2010 glory, and frankly, the recipe to do so doesn't even look hard.

He is not forward thinking, by my evaluation of his strategies. I don't care what all the evaluators say. I know this team, as well as a fan can. He's fucking up, imo

Ted's the strength of the team, imo.

We've just had injuries at these positions. Sherrod, Nick Perry, Jerel Worthy. Dez Bishop, DJ Smith, Woody. Nick Collins.

Look at all the gems Ted has uncovered. Sam Shields. Dez Moses. DuJuan Harris. I'd take those guys over high priced free agents any day.

Signing the high priced free agents is something that loser teams do all the time. Look at the successful teams like the Giants, Ravens, Patriots, Steelers. Those teams rarely ever sign high $$ FA contracts.

As unhappy as I've been with our line play, both on offense and defense, I do think injury has been a major problem.

However, Ted Thompson has an obligation to give his coaches the players necessary to succeed. Losing Nick Perry, and a real pass rush opposite Matthews hurt us badly last season, maybe more than any other injury.

That aside, our DL lacked depth in quality talent. Mike Neal? Yeah, he made some plays, but not enough. CJ Wilson? Same. Jerel Worthy? A rookie who it was hoped wouldn't be a project, but he was. Mike Daniels? Another rookie, on the small side. Again, made some plays but not enough.

I thought our biggest problems were on defense, in our front 7 and S opposite Burnett.

Our problems on the OL appear to be more in coaching and play calling.

If I were Ted, I would look to - upgrade - every front 7 position outside of Matthews, and I would upgrade S. Keep Raji and Pickett, but add more talent at their positions to create a legit rotation.

The Finley experiment clearly is not working at that price. We could use a C and a LT, but we might be OK with what we have. To me, our needs on D are really calling out for help, way more than on O, where there seems to me to be more of a need for a change in coaching philosophy.

Players who cost us a ton and are either past their prime, or not living up to expectations:
Finley. Hawk. Woodson. Tramon Williams. Ted should look very closely at upgrading those as well. He's got his work cut out for him.

I just hope to see top talent added to the team, almost regardless of position. The Packers have a lot of talent, but they need more. This a great draft to go almost strictly best pick available, within certain pre-defined criteria, of course. There is literally not a single position other than QB in which the Packers couldn't use a top talent at. Let the draft fall as it may, and draft accordingly. Hopefully this will work in Teds Favor.


I would add that I'm with you in this line of thinking, to a point. There are positions where we look to be solid outside of QB. LG, RG, WR, CB. Clay Matthews' position.

Would I like to see us add a punishing RB? Absolutely. A TE or two who can fit well in our system? Absolutely. A mauler of a LT and/or C? You bet. Another NT? Bring it!

We have a ton of positions that require upgrades on both sides of the ball. All I know, is Ted can't rely simply on the draft alone to address all of our needs. He must add quality FAs as well.
