Rick Spielman has drafted more Pro Bowlers for Vikings than Ted Thompson has for Packers.

What the hell ...

Rick Spielman's Vikings have lost a lot more games than Ted Thompson's Packers.

Fired Ted! He trades down in the draft and doesn't get the quality players.

The Queens are always picking MUCH higher in the draft, no?

Harder to miss on those top 10-15 picks. When's the last time he got them a good QB?

That was my initial thought as well but I'd have to see a list of the pro bowlers and where they were drafted. Were they all first rounders or later round picks or what.

I suppose you could argue that they pick earlier in every round so they get the better late rounders as well but once every team has a chance at picking a player that argument kind of goes out the window.

The bottom line is does this new information make you want to become a viking fan and the answer to that is HELL NO. I'd rather have Matt Millen as a GM than be a viking fan.

As far as I can tell Spielman has drafted 3 pro bowlers for the Vikings. I'm pretty sure Thompson has drafted more than 3 pro bowlers for the Packers.

Edit: It looks like he's drafted 4 pro bowlers since he's been their GM 2 from special teams (Walsh, Patterson) and 2 that got in as alternates (Kalil and Rudolph) yipee. Maybe after a few more they won't have to draft inside the top 10.

Yeah, I'm fairly certain that the quality of a team isn't determined by their number of pro bowlers.

Zero2Cool (11h) : Jordy has "legitimate hope" to play, per @RobDemovsky.
Zero2Cool (11h) : Packers had one call on defense if called, no issue, wans't called. I didn't watch OL so dunno. I watched WR's
Zero2Cool (11h) : Dallas OL had some holds weren't called and 2 defensive holds, not called.
uffda udfa (11h) : I think the Pi vs just a holding call is a legit complaint. Terrible call.
