Glad we drafted AJ, V. Davis didn't want to be a Packer.

    Packers | Thompson brushes off V. Davis' comments
    Mon, 8 May 2006 21:28:48 -0700

    Bob McGinn, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson brushed off San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis' comments about the team. During his press conference after being selected by the 49ers with the No. 6 overall pick, Davis said, "It's a pleasure to be here. I've always wanted to come here. I was sitting at the table yesterday and Green Bay was up and I was telling my agent, 'I hope Green Bay doesn't take me. I definitely don't want to go there. But the 49ers came around and it was just amazing knowing I was going to be a 49er." Thompson said, "We don't take any particular offense to that. People say things. If we had taken him he would have been happy coming here. But I can't speak for him."

    people say things in the heat of the moment. I guess this was just an attempt to write off a team that rejected him !

    Maybe he's a little light in his loafers, not that there's anything wrong with that!

    for sure. and personally, i can't conceive of a player who'd want to go to SF at this time. they're a mess. It was an absolute fluke that we had such a poor record last year but it brought us AJ Hawk and i am definitely happy about that.

    I'm sure he didn't mean anything by it. Nonetheless, I'd still have AJ bumping him EVERY PLAY on Dec 10th when we go to SF.

    Let's give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he was trying to convey how happy he was to be in SF and not dissing GB, but is not quite articulate enough do do so without sounding like a jerk.
