    Even though he made all those mistakes?

    Didn't sign any FAs (thus only did 1/2 his job)
    Didn't resign Jenkins
    Didn't draft probowl OLB opposite CM3
    Was only 2 deep on Probowl OTs
    Didn't anticipate losing probowl safety to injury

    In reading the award it appears to be based on 2010 and prior and the fact they won the Super Bowl in 2011. I don't think it was based on the 2011 draft class or what he did or didn't do in free agency this year.

    The poster who actually believes this was the only one to get the sarcasm. That's funny.

    Sorry.

    Check out TT's 2010 draft now:

    Here's what Fox Sports had:
    Green Bay: The Packers got great value with their first pick, Iowa OT Bryan Bulaga, who has a chance to start as a rookie at right tackle. Georgia Tech safety Morgan Burnett gives the Packers some depth at safety where Atari Bigby has had injury concerns. Mike Neal is really strong and spent five years at Purdue, starting as a defensive end and then switching to defensive tackle. His first love was basketball, but he will play end in the 3-4 defense. He had 26 tackles for a loss and 13 sacks at Purdue. The best news about the team's top three picks is that all are solid citizens with no injury history. TE Andrew Quarless spent a lot of time in Joe Paterno's doghouse at Penn State, but he did have 41 catches last season and could be a deep threat for Aaron Rodgers. RB James Stark missed his entire senior season at Buffalo, but if he plays to his old level could prove to be a valuable addition. Grade: C


    Here is how it looks now:
    • Bulaga - Starter
    • Mike Neal - Started but got injured
    • Burnett - Starter
    • Quarless - Lots of playing time till injured - funny they talk about Paterno and character concerns.
    • Marshall Newhouse - Started most of season
    • james Starks - Starter
    • CJ Wilson - small contributer (but hell, he was only a 7th round pick. Its an accomplishment to just make the team.)
    That makes 5 starters and 2 contributers. What did Wolf say? You wanted 2 starters and 2 contributors from every draft to be a success. May be up there with his best drafts when all is said and done.
