Any fucking idiot would have worked very hard to get us a supreme line on both sides of the ball the past few years. He did not work that hard at it. As a result, we left SB trophies for others to get, imo. He's too stupid to even know what he did to us, and the fanbase is too stupid to call him on it. I'm not bitter, though. I was born and raised in Wisconsin and realize what a stupid motherfucker I am as a result. [-(



The Packers have drafted 17 offensive linemen and 15 defensive lineman since 2005. Yeah, Ted Thompson wasn't trying at all there!

Just like the idiots who blame the President for everything, you blame Ted Thompson for every shortcoming of the Packers as if it is easy to win Super Bowl after Super Bowl. You need to widen your understanding young man of this game called, football. We're here to help you along the way.

Hey, I've complained about Ted's lacking presence in getting FA players to help the team, and do think one or two might have offset some losses we suffered to injury, but I cannot fault his drafting.

Imagine our team last year had we not lost three players on D to injury: Desmond Bishop, Nick Perry and Jerel Worthy.

Bish would have shut a lot of those middle gains down, and so too Perry. Worthy looked to be just getting it at the NFL level when he was lost. I think the playoffs may have been far different with those 3 healthy.

Two years ago we nearly went undefeated coming off a SB win. All done with Ted's system of player procurement and development. Hindsight is bliss.

Thompson holds to his drafts, and this last one may have been his very best. Give it a couple years. Maybe another Lombardi Trophy or two finds a home in our trophy cases.

A grade. C grade. B grade. It all seems a bit foolish this early to make a call. All GMs make mistakes. Ted drafts better than most. I have no problem supporting him and his efforts to make us better.

No doubt this idiot gave the Eagles an A grade when they assembled the "Dream Team".

Getting Aaron and Clay under long term contracts at least gives you a B in my opinion.

I think he was thinking in terms of relativity where it appears like each of the other team "improved" more. That being said, I think he should have concentrated on grading each team on an individual basis.

Fixed?



That was not nice. Kindly never do that again. This is not PFT or somesuch. I've always respected your opinion, I'd think you'd respect mine regardless of the distance between them. I like you just fine, lad... I think you already know that. Don't change my words. Assault them if you wanna, but don't change 'em.

doddpower applauding that is shitty and devoid of class, also.

Im a bit 'worried' about the lions and especially the niners upgrades this offseason ...

49ers were tough last season and they got some nice additions - even thou they lost a few peeps IMO their upgrades outweigh their losses ...

lions improved also - their frontline is going to be brutal ...

we need to run to the outside ;)

MN and bears not really worried about ...

and as far as this dudes C grade ... bleh - B+ at the worst (we got 2 of the best RBs in the draft) - and drafted some needs at every pick ... decent picks too.

Neither of those teams scare me.

The only way this team loses is self destruction.

I give the packers a B+. They had great value picks in Lacy and Franklin and both should make an impact right away and improve our overall running attack. Datone Jones is a solid 1st round pick and should give us a decent upgrade over what we had last year. If he plays as well as he did in college for us and does not get injured, I definitely see him improving our line and allowing our other players to make more plays.

The problem with draft/FA grades is figuring out what the grader uses for criteria. Prisco of CBS gave the Packers a C for the same reason others gave them an A or B...namely picking 2 RB's. The fact is, he has a passing game bias and sees this as a waste. The reason Thompson has been so successful in building a deep and talented team is that he gets good value for his picks (getting guys rated above where they were selected) and finding a lot of guys under the radar. He's also been smart enough not to waste salary cap money on players he can project will not be any better than their replacements. Bishop was a cheaper and better alternative to Barnett. Jones is a better alternative to Jennings. More importantly is the age old mantra of "better to lose a guy a year too soon than a year too late" which was CERTAINLY the case with Ahman Green and Brett Favre.

While the other teams in the fivision made some good FA moves and I think the Vikes had an outstanding draft, those teams are all still trying to fill holes while the Packers are adding depth. With few exceptions, the Packers can play at a high level with injury issues while no one in the division has anything close to their depth. Not only did the Packers fix a bad running game and add depth all over, but they have something like the 4th or 5th most cap space left in the league. That's what happens when you don't overpay for a Bushrod, Bush or Jennings.
