    I understand the Mike Sherman nomination, but really that was a product of the Packers not having a good succession plan for Ron Wolf. He did suck as a GM. Pretty good as a coach.

    As far as drafts, here are the worst picks from each GM era:

    Bart Starr era: QB Rich Campbell (runner-up = Bruce Clark)
    Forrest Gregg era: QB Robbie Bosco (runner-up = Mossy Cade)
    Tom Braatz era: OL Tony Mandarich (runner-up = Anthony Dilweg)
    Ron Wolf era: DE Jamal Reynolds (runners-up = Antoine Edwards / Mark D'Onofrio)
    Mike Sherman era: Every dang pick
    Ted Thompson era: QB Brian Brohm (runner-up = Justin Harrell)

    Free agents are a little tougher. Joe Johnson for sure and maybe safety Mark Roman.

    These weren't terrible moves in terms of contracts or expectations, but it's worth reminding everyone (for good humor) that Mike Sherman's 2003 free agency moves included signing both Eric Crouch and Akili Smith to backup Favre at quarterback!

    ^ I would reverse TT 's era to Harrell and Brohm being runner up. Harrell had a known history of injuries and Brohm was thought of as the next consensus pick of the QB's available. The Packers also held on to Justin for three years while they cut ties with Brohm by the end of camp that year and made Flynn no. two. Drafting is an inexact science but drafting Harrell when something about it was that risky was a mental malfunction.
