    Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I would have guessed "bad", but after reading this quote it's not entirely clear:

    "What, exactly, is the Packers top talent evaluator evaluating [when on the sidelines]?

    Mostly, it's how certain players react to different situations.

    'You can see the glassiness of the eyes, or the non-glassiness of the eyes," Thompson said. "I enjoy watching, especially the fellas that I've not been around, I enjoy watching them play the game.'

    Is he perhaps talking about the eye of the tiger? :D

    Remember Singletary's eyes? I'd say they were glassy, big glassy.

    This guy would be the opposite:

    I read it to mean the deer in the headlight type of glassy eyes.

    I took it to mean he wanted to see if anyone had a fake eye as in a 'glass eye'. Can't ask - that would be an ADA violation.

    I dunno. Wesley Walker was a heck of a WR and he was legally blind in one eye, which is hard to fathom when you think about depth perception and catching a football. Oh, wait..."glass eye"...that's different.

    If Ted were the GM in Pittsburgh and noted one of his running backs had 'glassy eyes', would his response be the same?
