Let us use this thread to praise TT in all his glory.

From high up on his perch TT patiently waits like a hawk to pounce upon his prey.

I really like TT's approach to free agency. He tends to stay out of the crazy bidding wars at the beginning and then he swoops in and gets some solid players at reasonable deals.

Why Ted Thompson is so good:

Cullen Jenkins, 26, entering 4th season
2004: 4.5 sacks, 18 tackles
2005: 3.0 sacks, 37 tackles
2006: 6.5 sacks, 32 tackles
RESULT: 4 year, 16 million dollar contract (4 per year)

DeWayne White, 27, entering 5th season
2004: 6.0 sacks, 30 tackles
2005: 3.0 sacks, 35 tackles
2006: 5.0 sacks, 43 tackles
RESULT: 5 year, 29 million dollar contract (5.8 per year)

* Jenkins' stats in '04 and '05 came at the DT position.

Does any one really think White is worth nearly 2 million more per year? I really like this Jenkins signing.

They couldn't find game film on him? Despite having played 41 games prior to the switch? I don't buy that. Also, DTs shouldn't be outproducing DEs, as he did this year and last year. He's also younger. As for the Lions needing a DE, I don't see how that's relevant.

Yeah, this isn't high school ball. If he played in at least one game there is film of him.

Time will tell gentlemen. I'm a huge packer fan and I know that I'm going to get a lot of flack for this post. But it seems like everyone just jumped on board once the pack started winning. The 8-8 record is inflated. I think it's a little false hope. I don't think the packers r that close to a title. Their defense was one of only a few that went the entire year with having only one starter miss a game. They lack depth and one or two injuries and they are right back to where they started. Their safeties are a mess. Their tackling isn't solid. I'm still nto sold on their d-ends either. And Manuel was a bust to say the least.
Their offense lacks weapons. I love McCarthy's creativity. But at times he tries to get too cute. Their o-line, as someone mentioned above is average. The only thing that saves them is the fact that they ARE young. It's sad when you constantly have to put your TE in the backfield to provide EXTRA protection.
I hope that another off-season has helped. And the weak NFC will always provide hope, but it's foolish to say TT is great. Let's not forget a guy by the name of Mike Holmgren in Seattle. Don't give full credit to TT there. Holmgren brought Hasslebeck. Without him, they had....Trent Dilfer.
I am frustrated by TT's patience. I agree to not overspend, but there's so much money out there. Why not add a few veterans? Especially at areas of need. I don't even see any RUMORS as to packer visits. Where's Daniel Graham? Oh wait just signed with Denver. Where's a running back other than overrated McGahee??

I hope for a dynasty. And I think we're headed int he right direction. But let's not crown TT jsut yet.

Just my .02 cents.

Just my .02 cents.

First of all I've always been a TT supporter, I was one of the only ones on this site who stood up for him when he first came to GB, even most of the GB fans here wanted his head without giving him a chance. It was clear to me that his plan was to cut lose all of the overpaid underperforming veterans that the Packers roster had become bloated with under the Sherman regime and begin a much needed infusion of youth and talent. Don't get me wrong, Sherman was a great coach, but in his final years he did a real number on the roster and left us hurting. Everybodies first knock on TT is that he dismantled a playoff team. The reality is that we could have probably made the playoffs several more times with that roster but we were never real contenders. Sure we had a couple of down years but TT has gotten us to a position where the team is filled with youth, speed, and talent and with another good draft or two and some key free agents we can have a team that can seriously contend and do so for a long time. I have more realistic expectations than some here, I think GB is still a few years away from contending and probably at least another year away from even making the playoffs. Like you said we need quality depth at several positions as well as quality starters at SS, RB, OLB, TE, and FB. I'm not so sure we can get all the pieces this year. It is frustrating at times but I'm really glad that TT isn't spending outrageous amounts of money on guys that just aren't worth it.

I never said there's only one way to build a team. The Patriots are as successful as they are because they have one of the greatest coaches ever and a great QB. Take away Belichicks great football mind and that roster isn't all that impressive. He runs complex schemes so he needs veterans who are smart and can understand and execute them rather than young athletic playmakers who may not play within the scheme as well. Most coaches aren't on Belichicks level though and wouldn't be nearly as successful in NE as he is.

I am loving what TT is doing with building the team for year Number two heading into year #3.

His first year, I thought he sabotaged Sherman by his botching of the OG situation and not re-signing Javon Walker long-term. Terrible handling of the line turned into a terrible season. Javon is more a Jajerque, but he still would have been a great addition to the passing game last year, along with Jennings had we gotten him to go with DD.

Last year, I was happy with his FA pickups, Pickett and Woodson had solid years. I was for Manuel then, now I still think we have a hole he created when he let Sharper go. Toss in the special teamers at LB and it was a decent FA season last year. His real home-runs were in the draft. The three OL, Jennings, Hodge and of course Hawk.

Year three I'd like to see him pick up a veteran player like Woodson and front-load the contract and include serious incentive pay, maybe a guy like Grant Wistrom to complete the DE corp, or even add pressure on KGB to get it done or get out. I was really hoping TT would have picked up Randy McMichael, but it wasn't meant to be.The Packers need some talent at the skill positions, so maybe he'll hget the offense working again this year. Depending on Underwood's knee, I'm still looking at upgrading the SS.

I have a lot of faith that TT will be getting it done, in his way, which I love as a fan. It means no stupid contracts for mediocre players (Bobby Wade to Minnesota), arranging the draft to have more players and relying on your scouts to be able to get NFL players from smaller colleges and having success later in the draft, and resigning guys that you really like that are still huge producers (Kampman and Jenkins) versus giving good money to players who had great careers in the past but don't have much potential to improve (Green).

Thompson addresses 'owners' at Fan Fest by Korth scout.com

Packers general manager stresses importance of developing from within.

Ted Thompson addressed fans at the Green Bay Packers’ annual Fan Fest this afternoon in the Lambeau Field atrium. While Thompson was not available to reporters, he did answer questions from former Packers center Larry McCarran while taping a television show that will air statewide tonight. Thompson has come under heavy criticism thus far in free agency because he has yet to sign any players to fill vacancies left by running back Ahman Green, who signed with Houston, fullback William Henderson (released), or tight end David Martin, who signed with the Miami Dolphins. Thompson said that the Packers are “working on some things” regarding free agency, but did not elaborate. Coach Mike McCarthy, who also was a guest on the TV show, said that it is important for the team’s younger players to “step up.” McCarthy also said that 75 players have committed to participate in the team’s off-season workout program, which begins on March 19. McCarthy said that is the most of any team in the league.

Here are Thompson’s responses to questions from McCarren:

On if he is surprised by any of the signings in free agency:

“We’ve expected to have some fairly dramatic deals because of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement and the salary cap. If a team felt like they had to address a particular need, then we felt like there would be some good deals. “We haven’t done anything. We tried to sign Ahman Green and David Martin both, but we didn’t come to an agreement there. We’re still working on some things. Even though we haven’t done anything, or haven’t signed anybody, it doesn’t mean that we’re sitting on our hands. We’re working on it, trying to find the right fit.”

On how he plans to replace Ahman Green:

“First and foremost, we have four young backs on our team that we’re going to try to develop from within. We’ve said it over and over, and Mike and I have talked about this a lot, the best way to become a good, sustaining team, is to develop from within. We’re going to give these guys a shot, and we’re going to bring in some competition for them. You never know what happens in free agency or the draft, but we’re going to count on the guys we have on our team.”

On if Aaron Rodgers is the team’s quarterback of the future?

“Yes, absolutely. Aaron’s working very hard. He’s a fine player. He wants to play, and he understands the position that he’s in. He got injured last year in the only opportunity he had to play, but he’s continued to develop. Mike and I are both very high on him, and he’s going to be a good player.”

On what he can say about trading for Randy Moss:

“You don’t say anything, that’s the best way to do it.”

On how he would characterize the NFL draft:

“We feel very confident that we’ll be able to take a really good player. The key is, ‘Do we know what we’re doing?’ But we know what we’re doing and we’ll get some good players for this team.”

On his thoughts on California RB Marshawn Lynch, whom many speculate the Packers will select with the 16th overall pick:

“He looks like a good player. We just got back from the (NFL) Combine, and a lot of players came through. We’re impressed with this group (of running backs). We feel that the first round is deep enough to take a good player at 16.”

On how far away the Packers are from contending for a Super Bowl title:

“The NFL is a funny business. You can be on the bottom and rise pretty fast. We feel like we’re getting better. We have improved the core of our team. We have some good guys who have brought us some leadership and know their responsibilities. We did pretty good through the course of the season, and it was a tough season because we had some bad games here at Lambeau Field, certainly. We’re going to try to avoid that. We have a chance, as far as predicting, but, again, the best way for us to be successful is for quality improvement from within.”

It's not that Thompson won't spend money in the open market, as evidenced by the signings last year of Charles Woodson and Ryan Pickett. But the 2007 free-agent field had the look of a rundown used-car lot, and it's obvious Thompson won't overpay for a beater.

TT is really pissing me off on how he seems to evaluate prospects on 75% character, 22% college production and 3% measurables. His picks could work out - everyone he drafted seems to be a potential starter for us, but I am getting really sick of us trading back to let other teams get the big names and passing up other players so we can pick the guy who did the most charity work.

God, I hate those that are being all pissy about this. It's Ted Thompson, give them a chance! Some of them are head scratchers, but come on look at his past drafts, how did they turn out. The man knows what he is doing.
To all those bitching about the Packers draft *coughprincefieldercough* please shut it. Thompson got the guys he wanted, have you not seen what the guys he wanted in past years have done. Now I can't say I was expecting those picks, hell I didn't even know who James Jones was, but that's Thompson's style. All of them probably won't turn out, but I have a hard time believing that after those very successful drafts he all of a sudden loses his abilities. Harrell was the right pick at 16 given the situation. Olsen didn't warrent to go that high and WR would have been plain stupid. I was thinking Branch at the time, but I actually like Harrell better.

Stop the hating.

The players he drafted were good last year, they were proven against elite competition and they did it for their college careers.

from all accounts GB did offer a 4th rounder, the problem was that Moss wasn't willing to redo his contract for anybody but NE. As far as spending money on FA's, he proved last year that he's more than willing to if he believes the players are worth it. The FA crop this year was extremely poor and the contracts they were getting were outrageous, not good value at all except for a couple players. He also has dished out some big contracts resigning our own players which is where he prefers to spend the money. You don't spend money just because you have it, there's gotta be value you're getting in return. Also, GB being the small market team that they are, does not have unlimited funds like a Dallas or Washington. We can't afford to just simply outbid everybody for players.

I certainly don't know all the details of the CBA, you'd have to be a lawyer too, but I do know that small market teams were not happy with it because there is still a huge discrepency between the income large market teams are making and what small market teams are making, even with the revenue sharing system currently in place.

Yeah, but I'm almost positive we have the funds to go up to the cap and beyond. So they have the smae amount to spend. Without the cap we'd be at a huge disadvantage, but with it we are on an equal playing field.

Yeah, all of TT's moves are good moves, like Corey Rodgers in the 4th last year... If you take TT's schlong outcher mouth, and look objectively at the picks, there are certain truisms from this draft that were not there last draft. TT is not infallible. Maybe you are a short memory guy that was still blowing him when he failed miserably to adress the OG situation two years ago. Remember two years ago? Here's a refresher:
Aaron Rodgers-has played under 60 minutes of ball. Still a solid value pick, though. Back-up

Nick Collins-starter, very solid pick

Terrence Murphy-out of game. Not TT's fault, but players now checked for stenosis

Marviel Underwood-promising, but no production yet, back-up

Brady Poppinga-starter, I don't think he's the long-term answer at SLB

Junius Coston-on roster. I think he gets cut this year. Back-up

Michael Hawkins-Cut
Mike Montgomery-On roster. Could be cut this year given Jenkins' progress, back-up

Craig Bragg-cut
Kurt Campbell-cut
William Whitticker-was starter, got cut
11 players, 2 starters, 4 backups. Yep, he "did his job" in 2005. Then he analyzed where he went wrong and put together a great draft in 2006.

Last year, TT took guys that had 30-40 starts and huge production year after year in college. Look at how many games started by Hawk, Colledge, Hodge, Jennings and Spitz. Look at how many tackles by Hawk and Hodge. Look at how many catches by Jennings. Five starters developed, four backups, one IR, one practice squad, and only one guy cut.

Then look at this year, R1 brings a guy who is a good player at DT, but brings him into a DT situation in which he won't be on the field much as a rookie unless Corey Williams gets hurt. With Jolly and Cole back there, why exactly did the Packers need this kid more than Nelson or Meachem? Going BPA is a good strategy, but someone's getting cut this year that will be on another club next year. Maybe he'll cut Jolly and only lose a 6th rounder from last year, or maybe he's gonna get rid of Cole since he didn't bring him in, which is just stupid.

Next is Brandon Jackson, early entrant. In three years of playing, he was healthy one year. Wow. One year of production. He doesn't have amazing speed, strength or size, but he is coming from the Nebraska ZBS like Ahman Green did, so he at least has the chance to contribute more, if he stays healthy.

No one picked Marques Colston until NO did in R7, so maybe James Jones is like that. Over the course of his collegiate career, started half the games he played in and 70 of his 126 catches over his career coming last year. He is versatile, with some passing and running ability, along with some PR skills. He was not a good value. He would have been available in R5. Clowney would have been better here, and was MUCH better in R5. Who gets cut from the WRs now? DD, Jennings, Fergie, Martin, Holiday, Bodiford, Brewster, Francies, Russell, and now Jones and Clowney, not to mention Koren Robinson in September are all on the roster. If the Packers keep 5, DD, Jennings, Martin, Jones and Clowney are going to be the five if TT sets the roster, with maybe Martin getting cut when KR comes back. James Jones wasn't a good value pick, and if MM sets the roster, might not even make the team or might lose his job when KR gets back.

Rouse was a great pick. I love Clowney in the 5th. Getting a perfect ZBS OT like Barbre solid, but BOTH Clowney and Barbre could have been Ben Patrick, and Barbre could have been Kevin Boss. TE no where near as many bodies as WR has. Unless you think Franks, Lee and Humphrey will take the Packers to the playoffs? Maybe you don't care about the post-season and are "building for the future", whatever that means.

For every draft pick that gets cut from a previous draft, it is an admission that guy wasn't the answer for the team. Draft a Barbre and cut a Coston just means you're trying to solve a problem you didn't solve previously.

So, look at picks objectively, give credit where due, but also give criticism where due. TT's first three picks were not value picks, the next three picks were value picks, but a trouble area still not addressed.

Where are these two ILBs going to play? Is TT going to knock off Tracy White and Brady Poppinga? Korey Hall is solid in coverage, though he's not too fast. He wasn't even listed by NFLDC, nfl.com and Packers.com took 20 minutes to find out information on him. He was a second team all-american, so why wasn't he listed? Looks like he's coming from a solid program and has had a great career, but who goes? And where are the CBs and the TEs?

TT just picked two ILBs in the sixth round, who have good pedigrees, but are the Packers going to a 3-4?

2005 was a mediocre to poor draft. 2006 was a great draft. this year is on the mediocre side with a chance to be poor if all his medical risk cases don't pan out. He has roster pressure at WR, DT and LB, but has done nothing to get the UDFA's he has packed in at CB or TE off the team. What's the point of signing guys (and giving them a signing bonus) and also drafting guys (and giving them a signing bonus) when there are only a certain number of roster spots at each position on the team?

Hillenmeyer was another Mike Sherman F-up. They haven't had a guy since as good as him at SLB. He'd have fit the current scheme perfectly.

BF51-yeah, it can be good if guys not good enough to be on your team are picked up on other teams. What I'm talking about is that the DT situation was solid, so why displace either solid starters, or get rid of a good prospect? If Chicago drafted a straight up great LB in round one, what would you think of that? The guy won't play in front of BU, so now you're looking at how to fit him in, or looking at moving BU to fit him in. Plus, whoever you have behind BU is going to get cut, even if he's a great prospect because you're not gonna carry three MLBs, so you lose out on a guy due to over-saturation at a non-need position rather than taking a guy like Nelson or Olsen that was more of a need and likely to start.

I'm not saying I love the Harrell pick. I don't. Mostly based on value. He's not a mid-1st rounder in my eyes.

That being said, I said all along the Packers would be well served to pick up a 1st round DT. This was back a few months ago when Okoye was a mid-1st projection. I'm just not sold that Harrell was the best value available there.

the thing that annoys me about this draft is there is very little doubt it didn't go the way TT and co. wanted it to. I don't think there's any doubt Marshawn Lynch was gonna be the pick at 16. And I don't think there is any doubt the Packers fully expected to have Randy Moss on the team. If they woulda known he was gonna go elsewhere, I'd bet a WR gets picked at 16. Also, it really seemed like the Packers traded down in the second because Jarrett and Rice went right before their pick. woulda LOVED to see either of those guys.


it's also a bummer when ya look at the rest of our division.

I can't wait to see you fairweather fans jump on TT's nuts when we go 6-10 this year.

Well, TT is not out there playing. Unlike year 1 when he didn't bring in any guards and let Sharper go, there's competition at almost every position and the young guys need to step up after working their butts off in the off-season. The only way I'd get rid of TT is if they were losing game sin a manner in which he failed to address, such as if we're starting Manuel Marquand still and he's losing games, or if there are still zero catches by a TE or if The D-line is fine but there's injuries at CB. I like MM so far, but if he were to lose the team, that could sink TT also. Other than that, I think he's renovated the team with youth and should be brought back 10-6 or 6-10.

TT doesn't play on Sundays, he just brings the guys in, and so far he's brought in a lot of promising rookies and a couple decent FAs. He needs to keep on bringing in more good guys than he's losing, but not too many guys he's lost have done much after the Packers.

A Ted Thompson sighting today at the Dick's Sporting Goods in Green Bay. He was in the golf department and asked me if we had any pass catching tight ends. :)

I can't wait to see you fairweather fans jump on TT's nuts when we go 6-10 this year.

I can't wait to see you inpatient naysayers massage TT's nuts when the Pack is the class of the NFC in a couple of years.

We gave up our 2nd, and two 3rds to move back into the 1st and get Mathews. Trade chart value wise we gave up a little in the trade, but the team moving up always does. We got a great player and a starter for many years, rather than possibly several lesser quality players. We need quality over quantity at this point so I'm happy with the trade.

Let us use this thread to praise TT in all his glory.

From high up on his perch TT patiently waits like a hawk to pounce upon his prey.

Seems like an extremley fair deal to me. The Pats may end up edging it out a little but we got our guys.

QFT

Pats did ok, mainly because Darius Butler fell to them, not sure who they traded Derek Cox for with J-Ville and Brandon Tate doesn't do much for me. The Packers picked up a day 1 starter for the new defense and a kid that I think will be the #2 LT and then take over when Cliffy is done.

Matthews + Meredith > Butler + Tate.

Great usage of photos.

The duo of Raji & Matthews is the best 1-2 Draft combo I can remember since the Ravens or Bucs back last century. Let's just pray that our guys stay fricking healthy for a long time.
