TED THOMPSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Surviving Sunday: Packers News, Notes and Links for the Football Deprived

Remember the old Loony Tunes cartoons when a giant safe (or sometimes an anvil, piano or another large object) would drop out of the sky and onto a character’s head? Nobody ever died, but they got knocked silly, usually symbolized by stars swirling around the character’s head. What if Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson was walking down the sidewalk one day and somebody...

Ted Thompson Green Bay Packers 2014 Evaluation and Report Card

Packers GM Ted Thompson1) Introduction:  Like the team he put together, Ted Thompson didn’t get off to that great of a start this season. Top draft pick Ha Ha Clinton-Dix couldn’t even crack the starting lineup out of training camp. Mid-round picks Corey Bradford and Khyri Thornton looked like busts from the get-go. Late-round pick Jared Abbrederis blew out his knee. Corey Linsley...

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Expect Thompson to Draft BPA, Really.

As I’ve mentioned before, more than anything I blame the 2011 and 2012 drafts for the shortcomings of what truly looked like a budding Packers dynasty after the 2011 NFL regular season.  Why did these drafts fall short of the standard of excellence that Ted Thompson true believers have become accustomed to? It comes down to two things, really.  One is obvious, and carries less...

NFL Combine notebook: Thompson playing waiting game again

INDIANAPOLIS -- Selecting no higher than No. 21 in the past five NFL drafts means the Green Bay Packers have had a lot of consistent success in recent years. It also means Ted Thompson is often left with choosing a player after the top group of prospects are already off the board. With the Packers picking at No. 30 this year, Thompson will once again have to play the waiting game...

Packers Coach Mike McCarthy: I’m Giving up Play Calling

In an afternoon press conference today, Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy admitted to a not-so-well kept secret; he will no longer call plays for the Packers. It was not an easy decision for McCarthy, and according to him, came as a surprise to his bosses, Ted Thompson and Mark Murphy. During the press conference there were several recurring themes: McCarthy feels he has...

Green Bay Packers: Grading all 9 draft picks

The 2014 NFL draft has come to a close and the Green Bay Packers did something they have never done in the Ted Thompson era.  Thompson did not trade any of the Packers’ nine draft picks.  The Packers filled their biggest need in round one, and helped made some nice offensive additions in the later rounds.  Here are my pick by pick grades for the Packers 2014 draft class. Round...

Green Bay Packers Hit Home Run with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Ted Thompson is often criticized for not being more aggressive but sometimes it pays off more to be patient and no one played it cooler in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft than Thompson and the Packers, who came away from the draft with top-rated safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix with the 21st overall selection. Ever since former pro bowl safety Nick Collins was lost to a career-ending...

Packers: Why Jared Abbrederis is the Perfect WR for Green Bay in 2014 Draft

If there is one position that Packers General Manager Ted Thompson knows how to draft, its wide receiver. Like any GM in the NFL, Thompson's draft record if far from perfect but its hard to argue with his results at receiver. Back in 2006, Thompson found his first gem when he drafted Greg Jennings out of Western Michigan. Then he followed up that by selecting James Jones in...
