In Ted we trust

In this time when news of our favorite team is sparse, I wanted to start a thread about peoples' opinion of our GM Ted Thompson. I tend to be biased toward Thompson and the manner in which he runs the team because of several reasons. First, Thompson manages the salary cap as well as any other winning team in the league. Second, our drafts have been phenomenal since Thompson has been our GM. Third, the Packers have become a team that is known for taking care of their own. Fourth, the application of free agency has been used more to provide depth and put the team in a position to draft without the need to reach for a position. I am interested to hear others' opinions on how you think Ted is doing at this point as our GM. I would love to hear how others think of letting Jennings go, the insanely overpriced contract that the Colts paid for Erik Walden, the miss on Stephen Jackson, the loss of Crabtree, and the release of the revered Charles Woodson. All moves of which I believe are well calculated risks. I look forward to hearing your opinions.
