    Mmm hmm. So far he looks to be middle of the road in terms of grading, maybe higher. You can't argue that he's one of the worst GMs in the history of the team, let alone the league, but you cant say he's one of the best either.

    He plays a very conservative style in regards to Free Agents and spent almost all of his drafts trying to store up depth in a franchise he must've felt was hollowed out due to the previous regime in place. He also was about as cold-hearted as one can get in regards to Favre.

    His approach is top-notch. His effeciency is still up for debate.

      I think he's doing a good job in adding depth to the team but we need more players stepping up and becoming solid starters. So far out of Thompson's draft I'd say we have above average players in Aaron Rodgers, Nick Collins, Greg Jennings, and Jason Spitz.

      I also don't really mind his approach to free agency either. It would be nice to add some more players that we do but how often does a high priced free agent acquisition pan out? Pickett worked out for us and I think we got lucky with Woodson simply because we needed to spend the money to get up to the minimum cap usage that year. Woodson even said he signed here because the Packers offered the most money.

      One thing I like about Thompson though is that he isn't affraid to cut ties with a player that doesn't pan out. He was quick to cut Ahmad Carroll, Mark Roman, Arturo Freeman, and Marquand Manuel among others. No more of this Cletidus Hunt/Joe Johnson treatment that went on for years under Sherman.

      Overall though our offense has potential to become a top notch unit under Thompson. We'll have to wait and see how our defense shapes up in the new 3-4 but we'll need guys like Hawk, Harrell, Lee, Raji, and Matthews to develop.

        He's drafted some superstars all ready. He's also had some that have faded away which is what to be expected with some. Overall I think he has done great.

        On a side note, I used to like Abdul Hodge...I wish we still had him with Bishop for depth.


        Go Packers, Chiefs, Mizzou Tigers, Kansas City Royals, Chicago Bulls, No. 31 Jeff Burton!

          We're already a pretty deep team on offense. We're have tons of guys along the offensive line which we need to sort out. We're loaded at WR. We have a potential Pro Bowl calibur QB and our run game has been solid, but hopefully better this year.

          Defensively we really haven't hit on anyone yet as to call them an above average starter. Hawk is solid, Jolly has been good, Rouse can make plays but gives them up just as easily, Pat Lee has been pretty disapointing so far, and Jeremy Thompson should fit well into the new defense.

          As for Hodge, I liked him coming out of college but his skill set just doesn't match up for the NFL and especially in the 3-4. Remember when he got the start against Seattle and they ran all over him?

            Since '05 he's drafted more for depth and to help build a core for the team. This year was the first year he traded up into the first to get some superstars.

              Thompson gets an A if Harrell does good like I said he is.

                In your opinion, who is the best GM in the game? I want to stack Ted up against them and see how he grades out. Of course certain circumstances interfere with it being an even grading system but I'm curious.

                  Thompson has been our GM for 4 going on 5 years now, I believe. Most people agree that it takes 3 years at least to grade a draft. Thus it is really only fair to grade him on the 2005-2006 drafts. So it's still early to sing his praise or condemn him in my opinion, but I really like what he's done and where the team is headed.

                  Thanks to BK for the sig

                      They say that the 5 year mark is the year to grade a GM though. The draft is only half the equasion and you have to factor in free agency too. So you have to factor in him signing Woodson, Pickett, Bigby, Trammon Williams, and trading for Ryan Grant.

                        What would you guys Rate Thompson right now?

                          I'd give Thompson a B right now for the following reasons:

                          1) He has re-established the overall depth of the team
                          2) He has created the cap surplus that we've had annually now which gives us the flexibility to sign free agents and sign our key players long term
                          3) The offense is a top 10
                          4) Key signings of Charles Woodson, Ryan Pickett, and a great value trade for Ryan Grant.
                          5) He isn't affraid to get rid of mistakes i.e. Ahmad Carroll and Marquand Manuel


                          Mostly though he's failed to hit on his top picks other than Aaron Rodgers. Hawk's been solid but unspecatular and Harrell has rarely seen the field. I don't think that Matthews will become a great pass rusher but if he hits on Raji then I'd give TT a B+ or A-

                            I hope you're kidding. Outside of Rodgers falling into our laps, we have one starter and a couple of backups.

                              He's a probowler, so I am not complaining.
