Quote:
If (Green Bays quarterback situation) does not work out, (Ted Thompson and Aaron Rodgers) will both be gone. Thats how much resentment there is (on the Packers board of directors). With every win (Brett) Favre has and every loss that Rodgers has, there is pressure to get (Thompson) out. Its a shame, because Ted is pretty damn good at what he does. He may not be the best, but he is one of the best in the business. He takes a very systematic approach and built a nice, young team.

Um, wow. If true, then that's just wrong.

Rodgers alone has by far NOT been the problem. He's looked the part so far, and quite frankly that bodes real well for the long-term success of the Packers.

If, and I stress "if", this tidbit is accurate, I have to question the Board of Directors being short-sited and quite frankly putting emotions smack dab in the middle of business, obscuring them to the fact that Ted has done a pretty fine job. He definitely doesn't deserve to be fired.

If we fire Thompson we are going to be hitting ourselves over our heads in a few years.

But this if profootball weekly. They don't really pull stuff out of thin air.

It looks like they got the quote from someone inside on the Packers.

Probably the janitor, who occasionally wipes the conference tables after 7 PM.

He didn't say it was pulled out of the air, he said its garbage reporting. Which, I agree.

The board of directors needs to do what Harlan asked them to do when he was brought in, stay OUT of the football side of things.

This is audibles which comes from scouts, coaches, and other front offices personnel around the league.

In other words this is the belief around the NFL. It's not necessary the beliefs of the board. The only thing that matters is what the board believes and not what another GM or front office guy believes. I don't think Ted's future is in jeopardy right now.

I would say that the quarterback situation has already "worked out". Despite no offensive line help - he's performed like a champ. He's young, he's mobile and he's got a great arm. He's also played when he's injured.

No one can replace Favre - but so far, Rodgers has done a helluva job following him up.

Thanks for the information. That is good to know.


I don't know how a GM could go from GM of the year to on the hot seat in just one off season.

To see it from the Favre fan point of view - if you trade away a player of that caliber (leaving all the off season drama out of it and looking at it from a purely talent point of view), you had better be damn sure about the guy you are sticking in his place.

I don't understand this at all. Ridiculous if you ask me. Our team would soon regret it if this ever happens.

How the hell would Rodgers be out if we don't have a successful season? The problems are anything BUT him. Why throw away a potential franchise QB? Just stupid.

Played well enough to allow his team a shot to win, at that.

I agree. I don't think we can blame Rodgers play as a reason for any one of our three losses thus far this season.

Rodgers is a good quarterback. All he has to do now is get the ball out after taking a MAX of 5 steps.

Once he does that efficiently, there will be nobody worried.

He's playing with a separated shoulder for damn's sake.
