You can't win football if you don't have a 3rd round pick, you just cant, it's science. Season is over.

Oh, I have my friend. I just was amazed at the loss of confidence in Ted Thompson, even though he pretty much crushed it.

The odds of finding gold in the bottom of the draft, any draft, is pretty remote. Yes it does happen. But then tell me how many Donald Drivers have we landed in the past 20 years? How many in the last 8? GB has had 26 6-7 picks in Uncle Teddy's time. It normally doesn't happen. Other teams know this too. They are not going to beat the door down looking to give up a potentially quality pick for the bottom of the draft scraps even in a deep draft.

It don't mind acquiring a few lower level picks with draft trades. The first trade with SF was fine. The second time was questionable. the third trade with Miami just plain ridiculous. I would rather get one starter or rotational player in the 3rd round that 2 long shots in the 6-7.


The Miami trade was the one I liked best--Ted traded back 16 places, from 93 to 109, and picked up multiple picks. I didn't see anyone jumping out at 93 that we couldn't get a comparable player at 109.

Ted must not be in a trading up mood today.

Wow, I didn't know you were so easly to please. 2 undersized Olineman and a RB that won't have a hole to run through.

Would have been better off with 2 3rds.

Yeah. It's not me. It's that I don't have to buy wpr lunch...Big Grin

Actually, I recognize that we get the canned version of talent evaluation. I'm willing to defer to Ted's experience and his NFL scouting department. They spend an awful lot of money and time evaluating every player on their board. Those are huge resources at work for our team. Not a series of maybe 8-10 draft sites...

Are there players I wanted? Of course! I listed them all. They clearly felt differently. I'm sure Ted and his staff could give two shits about draftscout.com, FF Toolbox and Walter's. So why hold so tight to those?

Do I think they reached on Tretter? Yes. Do I know that? No.

Last I saw, we had a full complement of OL. Its not like we didn't have a player at a starting level position. We are adding for the future, and maybe one of these kids shows this year.

Did you think Aaron Rodgers was bullshitting when he gave EDS his full endorsement at C?
