    Hello to my fellow coconspirator. Yes we will be bashed by our Ted (*) Thompson supporters, but I love my Pack. Let me first say I have bled Green and Gold for almost 30 years. I really hate to be negative about anything; because I enjoy all the great gifts that are given to me in life and relish all of the wonderful items we have and understand just how short items might be. And I will never ever stop expressing my feelings for a person that so far under his watch has turned our team into a laughing stock of the NFL. Fired a coach who understood our tradition, and never had a losing season under his control! He then choose to get rid of and break up one of the best offensive lines in the NFL by letting Marco and arguably one of the best guards in the NFL in Wahle go by offering him a ridiculous low amount to stay. Then after his shake up of our staff he chooses to sign Mike McCarthy who under his tutelage was the Offensive Coordinator of 2 of the worst teams in the NFL (Saints & 49ers). I will give him credit for having one good year in 2002 when the Saints had an outbreak of Offensive by leading the league with 432 points & 49 TD’s. See I did give him some credit, but then back to his origin under his lead they again became laughing stocks of the NFL.

    Under Macaroni he decides to bring in a man name Kurt Schottenheimer remember him? No let me refresh your memory he was on our staff in 2004 as our DB coach. Still not jogging your memory ok he was our DB coach on the WORST defensive team I think I can ever remember in my Packers memory. You know the DB’s that was a Fantasy Footballers dream come true for your wide receiver that week. Ready watch here he goes for 70 yard bomb oh not yet do I hear and 80 yard bomb you bet. Then just to make you pull the last follicle of hair out, lets just throw the ball as far as we can cuz there is going to be a Pass Interference penalty called on us to come. He then left or can we say (FIRED) in 2005 to go and coach the Rams secondary. Guess what folks the same thing happened the rams were a joke on defense or to be nice a Fantasy Footballers wide receiver weeks dream come true!

    Ted (*) Thompson chooses to hire Macaroni while only a few doors down there is an individual coach who should have been chosen. Who some of us NFL insiders call a magician because if you don’t remember only one year earlier our Packer defense was an absolute nightmare. That mans name would be Mr. Jim Bates who under his watch had us ranked first against the pass, 23rd against the run, tied for 26th in takeaways and tied for 19th in points allowed. With pretty much the same players from the year before minus Darren(I missed so many tackles that year)Sharper and a couple other departed players, but not many. Incorrect hire? Many of us would most likely say YES.

    Ted (*) Thompson then chose to pretty much come out and say to Brett and many of us fans that I do not care about winning with you or our hero by signing no key impact free agents and letting one of our best kickers in our franchise go, too my god the Vikings of all teams. That is the NFL lose some which means you have to gain some correct? On the market is the BEST KICKER in the league possible ever in Mr. Adam Vinatari. We fans think ok good move because we are going to get the best. :lol: Most all of us intelligent fans would say we are not going to let him walk out without a deal signed. Unfortunately Mr. Ted (*) Thompson decided that it was not even important enough to even BE THERE to tour him through our storied franchise. So I guess his plan is to grab the best kicker in the draft in Memphis K Stephen Gostowski so let’s just hope that is his plan. NOPE :lol:

    Let me get this correct our NFC counterparts who already have contending teams and they go shopping the Vikings-Tank Williams, Steve Hutchinson, Tony Richardson, DeQuincy Scott, Mike McMahon, Adimchinobe Echemandu, Cowboys- Terrell Owens, Mike Vanderjagt, Falcons- Lawyer Milloy, John Abraham, Giants- Arrington, Panthers- Keyshawn Johnson, Seahawks-Nate Burleson, Julian Peterson, Russell Davis, Tom Ashworth, and our best free agent is who Marc Boerigter, Ryan Pickett, and now Woodson. TT supporters I really do not mean to be rude but why should we be happy with this? I really do not care one bit that if his plan is to be competitive in the future by having 2-3 years of 4-12 seasons. No way is that worth it, us loyal Packer fans have grown very accustomed to winning and his record so far is VERY unimpressive. Javon's contract situation could have and should have been handled during and or at the end year that way we would not have this negative look on our club. So I understand 2 a point, (don't agree) why you wanted a new place and a new start.

    Then it comes time for our draft, many of us happy and excited Packer fans sat in front of mans best friend (TV) watching us get Hawk. Our 4-12 embarrassing season behind us and now over and time to forget. So we are about to experience the rewards of being Laughing Stocks of the NFL. Exuberance was flowing through many of use going into the 2’nd round with the thought of adding some key impact players on offense for Brett to use with players like C.Jackson and L.White and possibly some key impact defensive players because we know that Ted enjoys getting extra picks which is ok, if you get picks that are high enough to play now and not 3-4 years down the road. Remember that guy that is under center um I believe his name is BRETT FAVRE shouldn't we be giving him some talent to work with now that he chose to come back? So here comes the 36’th and my draft buddies and myself are sitting there ready to jump up and down and hug each other, (Which is not a MANLY thing to do :lol: ) because here comes C. Jackson, sweet this kid is 6-1 212 pounds and runs a 4.43 and is going to be a great big receiver for Brett. Well isn’t that what Macaroni said he wanted was bigger faster receivers? Then we hear the news that GB has traded their 36’th to NE for a 52 & 75 and boom their goes Jackson. Our jaws hit the floor and our veins in the middle of our forehead’s start to pulse big enough to see from the moon. We look at each other and are very angry but like intelligent and rational adults we decide to chill because we see that Denver is going to get Walker which means great we are going to get that 2’nd round pick. So we gather our thoughts and emotions and are ready to jump up and down cuz we will get L. White. Then it is brought to our attention that we got rid of Walker and we become speechless when we see that he then trades it to ATL with No. 139 for Nos. 47, 93, & 148. We look at each other and it comes to our attention that we have just wasted 3-4 hours of our life (watching this as loyal Packer fans) that has now become usless and feel really stupid because we will never get that time back. So us being men we decide and say lets just put on the punching gloves and beat the crap our of each other to let out our extreme frustration. We could not find and gloves so we decide to just pick up the couch, loveseat, footstool, desk, computer, TV, or pretty much anything that was not bolted down to the ground and toss it out through every window in the house. So you can just imagine the looks we get from the wives when they get home!

    So we got rid of our most potent WR and in return we get a 5â€

    No Offense Fantasy~Freak*4*Life but you have no idea what your talking about. And to say TT is destroying our team proves that, TT did a great job with our draft and got us a lot of good players. And you cant sit here and grade a draft and what players we got and didnt get until about 1-3 years down the road.


    P.S Stop Saying "Hey All," it is Annoying the crap out of me and I'm sure everyone else as well.

    P.S Again "that was very long." Posted By Tromadz

    And a waste of your time I didnt get past the first word

    You're question is not relevant to the topic.

    To refresh your memory, Please TED why are you destroying our team <-- topic.

    The Atrium and Smack Area would be suffice for your question.

    Depends if it was on topic and what the PM was about. I would rather have mods take it to PM if it's something the needs to be one on one, rather than take the thread completly off topic as we have so far (my self included with this post)...

    Back on topic...

    The Wr the Pack passed on to take Jennings..

    Not even a week wide receiver class could elevate Florida's Chad Jackson into the first round. Many mock drafts had him as the first receiver taken after he ran a 4.32 in the 40 at the combine. But scouts obviously felt he was a workout wonder and not that great of a football player...

    Now some info on Jennings

    Jennings had better times in the 3 cone and 60 yard shuttle then Jackson did..

    Jennings has been one of the more productive college wideouts over the past three seasons, but nobody has taken notice. As a sophomore in 2003, Jennings hauled in 56 passes for 1,050 yards and 14 touchdowns. As a junior, he caught 74 balls for 1,092 yards and 11 TD's. Jennings went out with a bang in 2005, finishing with career highs across the board. He caught 98 passes for 1,259 yards, and 14 touchdowns.

    Greg Jennings is a true playmaker at WR. With the recent change in contact rules between corners and wideouts, Jennings is the type of receiver teams are looking for. He has the quickness in and out of cuts to gain separation, and when he has the ball in his hands he can make people miss, and has the speed to outrun defenders for big plays.

    Jennings has a lot of experience and has produced at a high level for three consecutive seasons. With his development and talent, Jennings could be a factor as a rookie out of the slot.


    While he is not afraid of contact, Jennings needs to get stronger to be a consistent threat over the middle of the field. He has had some problems when facing more physical corners. Even though the talent in the MAC is improving, he still has not faced a lot of quality corners on a consistent basis.

    Greg Jennings has been a steady riser since the end of the season. Scouts knew his name because of his production, but wanted to see his true physical ability. He tested out well in agility drills and clocked a 4.46 40 at the combine, showing he has the talent to play at the next level.

    There are a lot of questions in the second tier of wide receivers in this draft, and Jennings could take advantage and move up into the middle of the second round.

    This might give you an explanation why we passed on Chad Jackson:

    Well written post.

    and this is exactly what we find in Greg Jennings:

    Sharp routes
    Good blocking

    That is all well and good but you at least need the threat of a deep WR to help open up the middle. Other they can play one on one and load the box with defenders and make it more difficult to run those routes. Sharpe had good speed along with his size as did Brooks. Send someone deep that requires double coverage and everything opens up.
