    I agree. Their tackling has been abysmal over the last few years. But this secondary is built to create takeaways, and the biggest strength of most of our DBs is their ball skills. Hopefully the pass rush is improved this year and we see more interceptions on the back end as a result.

    I love TT. I think he is the best thing that has happen to the Packers. People seem to think he is hurting the Packers, ok who would you replace him with??? I think very silly to hit on TT!!!

    I agree with you about how effective Ted Thompson is, but I see a real small percentage of Packer fans who are placing undue criticism on Thompson.

    Undue is right. Our front office, and Ted in particular, are well respected across the NFL. I think a lot of Packer fans, especially younger fans like myself, are spoiled. We're so used to being contenders year in year out. Fans of a lot of teams just want to be consistent playoff contenders. We're not happy if we're not winning the Super Bowl every year.

    It's great that we can and do have high hopes. But we have to be realistic. The closest thing to a dynasty since the NFL instituted the salary cap was New England last decade, and they were the exception, not the rule.
