    And do you know who else was wrong about Sherman? Every team in the league. Sherman was selected with the 154th pick in that draft. If any team had any idea he would turn out to be the best, or one of the best CBs in the league where would he have been drafted? So even Seattle didn’t fully recognize his talent. In fact they had four picks before taking Sherman. With their pick #107 they took WR Durham who they IR’d that season and waived before the 2012 season. He was claimed by the Lions and has caught 46 passes and scored 3 TDs for them. How could the Seahawks have missed so badly on Durham when Sherman was available? 47 picks would occur before they had a chance to get Sherman! Because every team in the league failed to recognize Sherman’s talent.

    Cardinals, Giants, Ravens, Patriots, Bills (2), Chargers (2), Texans (2), 49ers, Raiders (2), Saints, Eagles, Steelers (2), Panthers, Chiefs, Packers, Browns, Vikings, Cowboys, Jaguars. That’s a list of the teams who picked 24 players listed as CBs before Sherman was picked. Some teams with very well regarded front offices regarding personnel acquisition picked CBs ahead of Sherman, including the Ravens, 49ers and the Steelers who, like four other teams, picked two CBs before pick #154. BTW, the Cardinals picked pro bowl CB Patrick Peterson with pick #5 in the draft. If you were a Cardinals fan, would you criticize their front office for not trading down out of the #5 pick because Sherman would be available much, much later in the draft? That's the equivalent of the criticism you're aiming at Thompson. Your remark doesn’t even attempt to tell the whole story, obviously because the whole story is not nearly the indictment of Thompson you intended.

    I don't root for every team in the NFL tho so i could care less how many times and why they passed on Sherman. It's no indictment of TT to say he missed on Sherman more or less the other 31 GMS because they did...just like it's no indictment to call an overweight person overweight right?

    The Packer Fans are one of the main reasons I bleed Green and Gold today. I was a die hard Rams Fan since I was a boy. My early teen hero was the Deacon Jones and in all my travels in the Air Force I never missed a game when the Rams were on TV. Then the wicked witch of the west drowned her husband and ruined my team and moved them out of town.

    I was not going to root for a team in Saint Louie so I set out to find another team. Green is my favorite color and I could see myself in a freezing parking lot drinking beer and eating Brat's so I latched on to the Packers. Happened just about the time Favre came to town so I have been fortunate to experience passion for two long term winning franchises. I will never forget going to Lambeau for the opener in 2011 and the tailgate and game in San Diego. I have meet a lot of great people wearing green Jerseys.

    yep....like I said...that's what the ted haters do...they point to all these things after the fact. it really is no use in trying to explain anything to them.

    And they don't have emoticons and a ratings for each post as far as I can tell.
    From what little I saw, it seems like no one really cares about anyone else's thoughts.
    I see folks quoting other folks on here more often to echo or piggyback on one another's thoughts.
