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.


Linky

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.

Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
