This is in reply sort of to the hiring the safeties coach. I just didnt want to fill that whole post with TT comments.
Everyone may have their own and different opinion on the Favre situation. I personally understood both sides of that. I would have loved to have #4 but Rodgers probably would have walked this offseason if he didnt play. So I believe I am not a biased. Most of the people on here seem to believe Ted is a good GM but is he really? I am not going to try to praise or bash him here just want to state what I think and hear so reactions.
So here is my thought on TT. He sucks for FA. He is a great rebuilding GM. He knows how to get young talent in the draft. But are we really a rebuilding team? Yes our record would say yes but everyone knows our record did not show our talent and the games we should have won. So do we really need/ want the young talent in the draft that really wont help us win now? I know every team wants to try to get the best players in the draft as possible but usually other teams go with the best players that they need. Ted seems to not do this! He seems like the next Matt Millen that gets the best possible player not matter what. (Lions 1st round WRS who cares if they dont have a QB to throw it to them attitude)
With all the changes the Packers have made coachingwise and schemes, there has been a ton of talk here on possible FAs that we would all love to see in Green n Gold! But we have to realize none of them will probably ever happen due to TT and his draft schemes. The Peppers Haynesworth talk and now the Asomugha talk. We easily have the money for any of them as the salary cap has been not an issue now for sometime. Also the with hard economy baseball players are seeing football FAs will probably see the same. So the market for these guys maybe less then everyone thinks. These players are all great and would be an great addition to our team. But we know the odds of us getting them are slim with TT. We have a good team we just need to fill some gaps that probably wont happen in the draft. We need some veterans.
So what does everyone think about TT and the possible FAs we could get but probably wont? So let the comments fly!
