  • Is thompson the best GM

    Not on drafts. Reese blew up the draft and Giants won title. More of a comeback award.

    Packers' Thompson named top NFL GM
    3/25/2008 9:53 am

    Ted Thompson of the Green Bay Packers was selected the general manager of the year in a poll of fellow GMs and other NFL executives conducted by The Sporting News.

    Thompson received 19 votes, beating out Giants' general manager Jerry Reese, who received nine. Ten other NFL executives received at least one vote.

    In his third season at the helm, Thompson oversaw a team that went 13-3, winning the NFC North Division and advancing to the league championship game.

    "Ted understands every aspect of how an organization works. That's why he was able to put together a winning team so quickly," Packers former general manager Ron Wolf said.

      If he's not the best in drafting, then why did he win? He doesn't spend on free agents. Ted has drafted successfully in every year he has been here, finding gems. Yes, I know that the Giants rookies played a part in their SB win, but I think Eli, Strahan, Osi, Plax, etc. were the main reason they won. Those were all players Reese had nothing to do with. Ted built his team from scratch and led them to the NFC championship in three years. He is definitely the best GM.

        yeah, TT had a couple good FA siginings (Woodson, Pickett)
        Thats about it. Drafting has been almost picture perfect
        Draftees who have started:
        Hawk
        Jennings
        Jones
        Colledge
        Spitz
        Collins
        Moll
        Hodge
        Jackson
        Wynn
        Jolly
        Cole

        And he traded for Grant
        Picked up Bigby and Donald Lee i believe
        Found Ruvell Martin and got Koren Robinson back in the league and out of jail

            well, this was Reese's first year being fully in charge. The Packers probably had the bigger turn-around season as well.

            But Reese and the Giants easily had the best draft considering the output last year from rookies

                I see no problmes with Thompson winning this year. If Reese has another good draft, then he should be the top pic. I think Polian has won at least three times himself.

                  Is he the best GM? No. That's Bill Polian. Ted Thompson didn't draft Favre, and unless Rodgers turns into Favre, he can never put that notch on his belt.

                  But did he deserve the award this year? Yeah I think that's fair. This year's Giants team had Acorsi's fingerprints all over it.

                    Bill Polian. Simply amazing at retaining his top players, making no names look good, and drafting for success.

                    But he has won before, so that is the reason he did not win I guess.

                          Ted Thompson is getting there. He's probably been the 2nd best drafter since he started, after Bill Polian.

                            That's far too small of a sample size. Not to mention that Thompson was more often than not picking in the top half of the draft. It's easier to have good drafts when you have bad teams, and Favre.
