I know people are hot and cold on him. Some wish he went after more FAs...or ANY free agents (haha) but look at this year. Missing 15 players on IR. Al Harris gone. Jolly in jail. This team is missing like half of its starters from last year and they haven't missed a BEAT! Obviously coaching gets some of the credit here but they don't have a chance if Thompson doesn't get the right guys in there. The impact guys on defense are astounding. Peprah? Burnett? Shields? Walden? Green? Starks? Quarless? This team is anchored by second day draft picks and free agents, yet where are they?
I'll start the campaign today...Ted Thompson for Executive of the Year (for the second time)
Interesting...listening to Paul Allen here in Minnesota and he just mentioned it on their "Border Battle" talk with the stations resident Packer fan. If he can see it, its GOT to happen. PA actually said it would be a TERRIBLE INJUSTICE if Thompson doesn't win it.
