    Is there a player or coach that Ted Thompson brought in that is better than the guy he replaced?

    Woodson
    Ryan
    Jennings
    Lee
    Jolly over Washington.
    Gado ?? maybe


    Five or Six on a roster of 53 in 2 years. Listing all the downgrades would be a list too long.

    Pckett is as good as Grady, but younger and healthier. Jon Ryan is a better punter than BJ Sander. Other than that, I'd say the answer is no.

    The question should be also:

    Is MM better than the optino that he had in Bates?

    No it isnt, but IMHO TT is so soberb he will keep this guy at least this whole season...

    From what I have seen he is not.
    He looks slow and passive.

    I say we all go to Green Bay and picket to get TT out of Green Bay!!!!!!!! Then replace our new headcoach with Bates...we need an agressive headcoach not someone picking their nose on the sideline..

    I agree! This is why I am so fired up about TT. The sooner the fans get angry instead of making excuses, the sooner TT goes and perhaps we can get a capable guy in here and start winning again.

    Here I go, opening a can of worms....One place we could immediately upgrade(on the cheap) is at KR,...or are you happy w/Herron/Gado? THat move would be to sign Koren Robinson right now. He's a pro-bowler as a KR. What more could you want? Oh I know many will say that he's a bad character, etc., but we have lots of good character guys on this team and they played like sissies yesterday. Are you satisfied with that? Is that all you want? Of course not. It is TT's job to strengthen this team whereever possible. Here's his chance to do it.

    Continue on your way, TT knows what he is doing!

    With the running through the middle of the defense, Picket is not better against the run than Jackson. He is replaced on passing downs.

    When Raynor makes his first extra point or first field goal maybe he can be considered.

    I should have added that LB Thomas was better than Ray Thompson.

    TT has a big ego, and wants to be successful with his own guys. Why else do you don't resign, release, or trade away Mike Wahle, Darren Sharper, Javon Walker, Grady Jackson, Ryan Longwell, Marco Rivera, Najeh Davenport, Mike Flanagan, etc. I know not all could be kept, but a majority should have been kept. Thanks TT, you suck

    I agree with everyone who wants to get rid of TT. I never did like him. He always looked shifty to me. AND NO, NO, DON'T SIGN KOREN. We don't need any bad apples on the team.

    You also forget TT smoked $6 mill on an extension for Sherman when all he had to do was wait.

    Then Bates is on staff, find an offensive coordinator(Bevell?) and away you go.

    He brings in a guy with the 32nd ranked offense.

    When Wolf hired Holmgren, Mike H. had a long history of success.

    We'll see.

    Longwell was wanting to leave to a climate that better suited his stats. He said that as well as saying he wasn't thrilled about GB because of the lack of 'good resturants' lol
