    I'm beginning to think Raptorman is psychic, 25 and 15 sound real close... though probably closer to 24 and 16

    I still maintain that the move to get up and take Matthews is Thompson's BEST (yes #1) move as GM.
    That was aggressive, out of character, and brilliant.
    Rodgers fell into his lap. Still that is his 2nd best move ever, IMO.

    I think Arod is still #1, even though he fell to the Packers, putting it into the time perspective, he still had a franchise QB in Brett and it was his first pick ever as GM. Brett still had a lot in his tank when TT made that pick and there were alot of other positions of need at the time. That was our first glimpse of his BAP philosophy. But still Moving up to grab Clay was a brilliant move considering how little playing time Clay had at USC. In TT I totally trust.
