The Packers will start the regular season with a pair of largely untested offensive tackles, which has generated some concern about how well quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be protected this season. General Manager Ted Thompson is not among those concerned about how things are going to play out. During an interview with Mike Vandermause of...


“It would probably depend on who the people were,” Thompson said. “Go on with their life, everything else will be fine.”

I'll be disappointed if Sherrod's not activated this season.

I like Thompson. He reminds me of David Byrne.

When you put the best QB in the league behind a consistent medicore line where he is running for his life and taking boatloads of sacks eventually the inability to deal with the O-line is gonna bite us in the ass. Either that will be a Rodgers season-ending injury, or eventually when his legs are not as lively a guy that just can't get to the safe spot in time to make the throw to the open guy. Worst would be a pissed off QB who wants out. Don't think it will ever get there, but who knows.

I'll be dissapointed if nerdman isn't diasapointed!!!

I think Ted is saying, "talk is cheap', you all STFU and just watch and our tackles will shut you up for good!!!

Ted has invested TWO 1st round picks in the Oline. I think he takes a C high next year.

I'll take the over, largely because he holds the ball too long.

Then again, maybe the situation will inspire Aaron to get the ball out.

Didn't hear anything about them using a 2.5 second clock in training camp this year. Not sure if I'm happy or disappointed by that.

Well I read somewhere profootballfocus wrote Rodgers was releasing the ball faster than anybody in preseason so far.

Is that his throwing motion? As in "he has a quick release?"

Or does that refer to how long he holds onto the ball before he throws it?

That was my take too. From some of the posts here and the comments I read on PFT it seems we might be in the minority...

Q: What would you say to those who are worried that Aaron Rodgers is being protected by a pair of young tackles?

Thompson: It would probably depend on who the people were. Go on with their life, everything else will be fine.






Sounds more like he's saying relax, we got this covered so you can continue with your lives as you were.

everyone knows he can't stat whore if he don't keep it for a t least 3.0-3.5 seconds. How is he going to break Brett's records if he doesn't?

I am certain Ted loses sleep over that the media and fans think. He should be. We are all so wise in the ways of the NFL and the Packer's organization. We are all so discerning when it comes to evaluating talent. [laughing]
