What personnel move would you like a "Do-Over" on since Ted Thompson took over the Green Bay Packers?

Richard Sherman instead of Davon House

Or D. J. Williams? ;-)


I don't think Richard Sherman would be successful in this defense the Packers have.

I'm just being fair with respect to where they actually got drafted and House was our last pack before Sherman came off the board.

I don't see why he wouldn't be successful. Tramon Williams is successful in this defense and there's not 1 thing he does better than Sherman.

Thought DJ Williams was a 4th rounder then we took House with our comp pick. Swapping with Williams makes more sense then because I still like House anyways. =d>

The whole 2007 draft ... James Jones and Crosby have been nice for the most part... but the rest of that draft not so much. Then again that might now of been the best draft so I might do worse... but I would of done better in the first as I wanted them to trade up for Darrelle Revis, stay put for Dwayne Bowe (if Revis was off the board) or trade back and try to get two of the following S Eric Weddle, TE Greg Olsen, WR Anthony Gonzalez...


If I can't do a whole draft then... Haloti Ngata in the 2006 draft instead of Hawk, as the Packers have had problems with DL, and Ngate might of helped solve that and given more chances at another Super Bowl or trading the 3rd round pick used on RB Alex Green and trade it for RB Marshawn Lynch

Let's check into that!

Buffalo got
2011 fourth-round pick
2012 sixth-round pick


The Bills wouldn't accept the same round pick from the Packers as the Seahawks because it was clear we would finish better, so it had to be a round gooder. As you suggested, 3rd Round ... which means no Alex Green. Boo hoo.


as for the extra pick... no clue who we would have lost since it would have been a 4th rounder and i have no clue what we started with.


Short of it.... I agree. :)

Glad you agree, as you found out there wasn't a need to check into that... but as for the extra pick (if they demanded some) that was the same year they got

4th) CB House
5th) TE D.J. Williams
6th) OG Caleb Schlauderaff, ILB D.J. Smith and OLB Ricky Elmore
7th) TE Ryan Taylor and DL Lawrence Guy

So even if they gave extra pick, I don't think it would of hurt too bad and I would of gladly given up, OG Schlauderaff... after they draft I look up the picks, and I still don't have a clue why they drafted Schlauderaff... I didn't think he was that good and I didn't even see potential like some other prospect...

Yeah, I wanted Ngata with that pick too.

I'd also have wanted him to pull the trigger on the Marshawn Lynch trade, which I was for at the time, but if the other team was gonna jerk Ted around at the last second, then I don't blame him for walking away. It takes two to tango.

Besides, I like our RB situation right now.

Not reeling in Randy Moss and letting him put up historic numbers with Brady in New England.

I don't count someone who suffers an injury to be a bust so I am not sure if it counts (Harrel) as do-over. I also wouldn't count Moss because his terrible character was well known at the time and it's why most teams passed on him (the same was true of Warren Sapp),

I also find it hard to call a do-over for something unexpected liker a Sherman turning out to be so good...after all most of the draft went by without anyone drafting him.

I would say letting Rivera and Wahle both walk would be mine.

I don't think you should include things NOT done. In fact, I probably wouldn't include draft choices at all.

So eliminating all that stuff, the Brad Jones signing stands out to me as a colossal blunder. It seemed that way at the time, and he has done little or nothing to change that perception.

If this is how we're doing it...then taking AJ Hawk 5th overall and then giving him a huge contract extension a few years ago that we can't move on from until next season cap wise would be mine.

I'd take Kellen Moore over BJ Coleman.

The reason I stick with the Brad Jones deal is Thompson shoulda known better - the great majority of fans certainly did. As for Hawk, he was the choice at the time of maybe 60% of the fans; I was part of the 40% who preferred Vernon Davis.

Hawk was about the 5th best player taken in the first round of the '06 draft.

I find it funny to second guess a GM that has 60 out of 90 training camp players end up on on someones active roster last year.

It is kind of like vivisecting a gift horse.

Brad Jones is fine. Not only is he versatile, but he can COVER.
