    I almost posted the same type of thing about the press gazette ted thompson article. That title threw me off but figured bah dont wanna be a double poster heh heh ... anyhooterz

    I dunno much about this Ted guy, I do know seattle team has no heart, can not catch and I'm not sure how they've been doing on drafts but how did Grant Winstrom turn out? :-(

    I think its best to look at him not being a fan of FA that he puts that much more effort into his draft picks. I personally would rather have a team of solid draft picks who are less expensive and have that burning desire to play than have another joe johnson, but yet again you never really know cuz look at JJ and then Grady. Over all i think someone who focus's more on drafting is better than someone who tries to take other peoples leftovers.


    Not TOO bad...

    cornerbacks Ken Lucas and Marcus Trufant and safeties Ken Hamlin and Michael Boulware.


    Lucas, Trufant, Hamlin and Boulware are all players who were instant contributors

    Thompson was scouting the East-West Shrine game in the San Francisco Bay area and was unavailable for comment. Sherman has been in staff meetings all week and unavailable. He is scheduled to hold his season-ending news conference Friday.

    This piece of the article says it all to me. This man is out scouting hands on and sherman is in green bay talking with his staff. Who is a better person for the G.M. job?
    I think getting another viewpoint in green bay drafts, could be the missing link to our poor picks as of late.

    Sounds good to me ,when do we sign him! I bet that sherman has some scouts out there watching too. But I agree with you, I think it would help alot. I still think that two jobs make it to hard to do both right,there is not enough time to do both. :agree:

    Good point!! I didn't even think about that hands on aspect. Yes, I like this guy a little bit more now. :) Although in Shermans defense since I try to see both sides of the fence, he probably has his hands around Harlans leg begging not to be stripped of his GM duties.

    The good part is that Ted was tutored under Ron Wolf during the Nineties campaign... Hopefully, we could also get Ron Wolf back under the Tent as a Consultant.... Personally, I don't see Sherman getting a contract extension.. I just don't see it.

    I don't think there is any question that Shermans GM duties are going to be stripped. If he stays on as the Coach, which I hope he does, will depend on if he respects and can get along with the new GM.

    i read a couple days ago that wolf will not return to the nfl. that gb would be the best spot and he still won't because he always considered himself on top of things and he feels the game has passed him by.

    I read the same exact quote, Wolf said the game has passed him by and that his biggest asset was knowing who was where and what not and now he knows next to nothing.

    Very good point, leopardmech. I guess a new GM would technically be Shermans boss. He needs to be held accountable. Hopefully his ego will allow this kind of arrangement, although he doesn't have much leverage right now.
