Uh oh, guys. I think I'm going to have to criticize a local traditional media mainstay. Does this mean I'm a real sports blogger now? Sorry Bob McGinn, you're still one of the best ever in this business, but you printed some junk. Here's your daily Green Bay Packers news and links.
A look at previous compensatory picks made by the Packers. Ron Wolf and Ted Thompson have made some excellent ones. Mike Sherman...not so much!

Okay, I really don't want to pick on Bob McGinn. He's one of the best beat writers in the country. However, this is the second time in a week he's written an article with out there quotes from an unnamed person that he doesn't contextualize at all. Dude needs a little picking on.
First, he stirred up some crap earlier in the week by printing comments about RGIII's "character issues". While this particular article doesn't attack anyone's character, it's almost as ridiculous because a lot of the comments reflect an antiquated view of the game and/or a lack of knowledge about the team.
I feel like it's okay for a writer to print quotes without comment from someone whose name is given, or print quotes from an unnamed source, then contextualize them and comment on them yourself. This, though? I have a problem with this.
The stadium bill got through committee, but who knows whether or not it's going anywhere.
Excellent post, though I disagree with the ultimate conclusion.
If it's just going to take a late pick to get him? Yes.
