    I would like to add that it goes both ways as well. If the Pack had finished 12-4 in '05 TT would not have gotten a lot of credit for it in my eyes.

    It just seems a little to convenient that the '05 record often gets shoved entirely on TT's plate and he's forced to eat a meal that was cooked by MS in the first place.

    That's absolutely correct. Had the Packers had a banner year in 05 then it shouldn't have been all on TT just as 05 as it turned out shouldnt all be on TT.

    You're kidding right? These conspiracies to undermine the organizations success would have resulted in swift repurcussions from Harlan and the board.

    Thompson didn't need any reason to get rid of Sherman other than the two didn't see eye to eye. Sabatoging team results for personal goals is ludicrous.

    So far, while every move hasn't been perfect, his changes with the personell of the line have been to the betterment of the team as witnessed by the improvement of the line throughout this last season

    APOLOGIES TO ALL!!! Especially PAck66!!!



    I had responded to pack66 post regarding Ted. As a moderator, I also have an edit button that is right next to the quote button.I accidently hit the edit button instead of the quote button. It is a very similar process from there. What you all read in Yellow was my response. I publicly apologize to Pack66!


    So please don't give him the hard time. Twas I!!!



    Sorry Pack66!

    I did that a time or two as well, lol. I got bagged hard for it so I jus took the lumps instead of admitting that someone as experienced with forums as I am could make that mistake. BUT now that someone else did I don't feel so bad :p

    Reign of Thompson Terror? Aren't you being just a bit overdramatic?

    In the middle of the 2004 season, when the Packers were floundering, you proposed that it was time to tear the team down because the run was over. Then the Packers righted themselves and won the division, but lost in the first round of the playoffs. Was their late-season run that year really so impressive that you decided the team didn't need to be torn down after all, not even after two years?

    Well, it was well documented that and confirmed by Andrew Brandt that Wahle could have been retained and the fooling around nonsense that went on with Coston, Klemm, Whittiker, and White(not sure who he even was?)...on the rotating O-line that year could have been avoided....

    Hell..Rugemeyer could have played center and Wells could have been slid out to Guard and the O-line would have been much better.

    TT also could have probably picked up a cagey veteran at WR that year instead of messing with off-the-rack, NFLE type guys in Thurman, Gardner, and Taco Wallace as well....

    (Disclaimer: This is just my opinion everyone, on a Packer forum that contains many such opinions....

    (Warning: You do not have to freak out necessarily if you don't agree with me....!)

    2005 was a year that TT used to free up cap space because before that we where never in good shape. We finally have lots of cap room and it is nice that we do.

    Not sure about well documented, but that is true. Wahle could have been kept. Andrew Brandt said it himself on Chris Havel's radio show. When I got back home, I posted it and took the heat for stating the opposite. :(

    But was he WORTH keeping at the money he was seeking and got?

    The answer is no.

    I really don't care if Wahle could have been signed or not. He was not the answer for the '05 season all by himself.

    I'm sure it probably could have happened somehow. Cut some salaries and sign some others for the minimum to replace them to come up with extra cash. Like we had the luxury of so much depth we could afford to do that.

    I will go back to my original point. Whatever TT was looking at was what MS left for him. I would really like to hear from MS how he planned on dealing with these issues if hadn't of gotten fired since he was the one that saw it coming for YEARS in advance vs TT who got hit with it between the eyes.
