    Re: Ted Thompson

    Plus he brings in a new HC who has never won anything.... Great OC from 49ers who were last in almost every offense stat last year. Other teams have hired coach from winning teams or programs. I really hope we are not going back to the 80's where no one wanted to play in Green bay.

    Re: Ted Thompson

    Not making Bates HC was the biggest mistake TT has made of his hopefully short tenure in Geen Bay.

    Re: Ted Thompson

    Ferguson was Wolf's pick, not Sherman.

    This is one freaking game people. The Bears are probably one of the best teams in the NFC. The Packers aren't.

    Geez, overreact much?

    If they come back next week and beat the Saints everyone will be exalting the job TT has done putting this team together.

    Re: Ted Thompson

    You don't give him six years. We gave Sherman too long, but he gets one more draft and one more often season to start to turn it around. After that I'll be the first on to ask for his removal. We gave Sherman five years to put us in this position we have to give Ted some time to see if he can bail us out. If he can't get rid of him and start over.

    Re: Ted Thompson

    I think you mean it was just the fist time Green Bay has been shut-out since October 1991.

    No I won't. But I bet you I can probably list the names of the posters on this forum that most likely will be.

    Re: Ted Thompson

    Yeah I wouldn't expect Green Bay to beat the Saints though.

    Ferguson was picked by Wolf but Sherman pushed for him. Pretty much Wolf made the pick for Sherman or so they say.

    Week 1 and I guess we should just give up. The Packers lost the game. I'm not shocked. I'm shocked by the way Grossman played but overall they lost. Anyone who though they were going to win was optimistic. That's fine but now they lose and it's time to clean house already on the coaching and front office.

    Like you said if they win their next game, things will in complete vice versa.

    Re: Ted Thompson

    Nobody said we should give up porky88,

    Last year everyone said "this is TT's first year, give him a chance". During pre-season the excuse was "our starters our on the bench, it's only pre-season". Now it's "This is only the first game".

    Tired of excuses for TT my friend, sorry but TT's time to prove things is "NOW" End of Story !!

    Re: Ted Thompson

    There is nothing he can do now. The season has started. Let's bitch about the off season when it gets here.

    It's going to be a while until this team is any good.

    Re: Ted Thompson

    from the looks of it we will suck for a long time.

    lets show some mercy and see how the team does next week...then we can come to conclusions.

    give the team a second chance to prove something.

    Re: Ted Thompson

    I did not expect that you funny guy, but I did not expect us to start with a 26-0 blowout either ( This team is looking worse than last year ) but I could handle that because we were decimated with injuries. This year is a different story and 26-0 is messed up and you know it my friend !!!

    Re: Ted Thompson

    And the first shut out since 1991 (at home, nonetheless) is OK with you?? Good thing you set your expectations so low. It explains a lot about why you are such a big fan of Uncle Ted. :roll:

    Re: Ted Thompson

    TT has said from day 1 that he wanted to build his team via the draft. He only will bring in FA's when he has a solid talent base.

    That being said, what is a reasonable time to give TT if he plans to rebuild via the draft?

    Re: Ted Thompson

    I'd give him 2 more years top. I wouldn't give him 3. McCarthy I believe signed a 3 year deal. If things aren't good by then get rid of both at the sametime.

    Re: Ted Thompson

    Teddy has had 2 drafts and two freeagency periods and what we have is a very bad team with very little talent and no depth except marginally on the d-line.
    He also hired a head coach that no other team would have hired as HC.

    Re: Ted Thompson

    We should be seeing improvements now, I am not talking a SB, but 26-0 at home is going backwards, not forwards !!!

    Re: Ted Thompson

    I am not trying to disagree with you but building via the draft is a longer process than bring in FA's. We all knew TT wanted to do it his way so we shouldn't expect improvement so early in time.

    In his defense, he also fired a HC that no other team wanted to hire as HC as well. :lol:

    Re: Ted Thompson

    Regardless of the outcome this season, TT will get at least one more year here. My guess is that after having a dismal season this year and another losing season next year Jones will then be forced into making a move.

    Does that mean that Teddy is batting 1.000?

    Teddy should be no more than a scout scouring Division 2 schools for 7th round "diamonds in the rough".
