This is a serious question, Why would Peppers want to came to Green Bay? He will probably get offers from many teams, some who made the play-offs this year.
The other thing is what makes anyone think Ted Thompson is going to offer any FA with Peppers talent enough money to make him come here?

He hasn't done it in the past, why should he do it now?

Please prove me wrong Ted.

Well, he gave Charles Woodson (damaged goods who was a better fit at safety) a 50M dollar contract.

If he sees quality, he tries to catch it.

I know this goes against the off topic thing, but that comment was funny.

I'm wishing for a pony myself. Until Ted Thompson shows me that he's willing to spend some bucks on quality FA's, he's the Matt Millen of GB in my book.


He sure paid the farm for Charles Woodson. He payed Ryan Pickett a pretty good share of money too. I'd say those two players are quality FAs.

More trollery. When did Matt Millen ever have a 13-3 season? When did he draft a franchise-quality quarterback while his franchise quarterback was still playing? When did he draft quality receivers in the second and third rounds?

Thompson - drafts receivers with first round talent in rounds 2 and 3
Millen - drafted receivers in round 1 who wished they had round 2 or 3 talent

I thought of that, GPG, but what's the point of drafting first-round talent at wide receiver when you have no one to throw to him?

Notice that I said except. He's missed on all but 1, and that 1 is Calvin Johnson.

Charles Woodson admitted he was out of options, that is how he ended up in Green Bay.

I liked the R. Picket signing(being a Buckeye and all), again I was being serious, but good old Packnick has to do the only thing he knows how to do and that is "LABEL SOMEONE A HATER".

Going from 14-4 to 6-10 is not progress IMHO Fa's are not going to be real excited about a team that seems to be going backward not foward.


But what do i know, I'm just "A HATER" :icon_smile: :icon_smile:

Good to know that some things will never change on this forum.
Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :icon_smile: :icon_smile:

buckeyepackfan, you are monotonous. Give Packernation a chance to be optimistic about next season before being such a downer, will you?

Green Bay has brought in Dom Capers -- a man who was NOT out of options. You cannot deny that is a fantastic move.

So now I am Monotenous because I asked a question and got slammed and labeled for asking it.

Reality is Ted Thompson is going to have to offer any top tier FA a hell of a lot more money than most any other team out there to make them want to come to Green Bay.

Unless Ted Thompson changes his way, that is not going to happen.
