    Ted has got a big surprise in store for us Packer fans. I don't believe he is just being tight with the money, IMHO he is saving to buy us something really good.
    It could be Turner, it could be Moss. But I believe he is positioning the Packers to pull off a deal that will provide us with the offensive punch that he believes will improve the Green Bay Packers.
    It might even be someone who is not even on the radar, but I can feel it, he is going to pull off something big.
    I know waiting for the big surprise is nerve wracking, just be patient, it will be good.
    Ted seems to be talking more and even if it is "Ted speak" that is a good sign. I think even he is excited about what he is trying to give us.

    I know that this is out of character for me as I have never been a big fan of Ted, but I have this gut feeling that just won't go away.

    I hope you are right . . . and believe you might be. I wouldn't be surprised if there is some truth to each of the trade rumors out there. But TT is not going to be "held up" by the likes of Al Davis or anyone else. Hopefully, something exceptionally good works out.

    Because at this point nobody knows what to expect.
    So when something big happens (which I believe is going to be the case), it is going to be a surprise.

    My thoughts exactly. Moss or Turner. I actually think GB has a legit shot at landing one or the other. I guess my surprise would be both. Unless it's an off the name radar I seriously doubt there would be a surprise.

    Though landing either Moss or Turner would probably shock some.

    I'd rather have a cake maker than a naysayer and Pack what the hell is a doppleganger?

    You use words like that down here in Alabama and the good ole' boys will be pulling their shotguns out of the back window of their pickups for sure.

    "The cake's done when the cake's done." Ted Thompson

    Sounds like John Madden.

    Maybe but I doubt it....I am a big supporter of the moss deal, but even if we landed moss it still wouldnt explain why we are holding on to so much....It would have to be a two player signing like moss and turner to be a surprise.


    I say lets go after Priest Holmes!!!!

    I have been trying to console myself with the belief that TT is going to pull off an "October surprise" in April. He MUST be planning something with $21mil in his pocket. Of course, it always takes two (or more) to tango in any NFL scenerio. Personally, I'm hoping for adding Turner, the Burner to the team. I'm againest the Moss scenerio. I've never liked high risk deals for my team. I also want a good S added, although I have high hopes(and not much else) for Underwood. Blackmon has been my favorite future hope for no real reason.

    I love how in early offseason I was being jumped on for bashing TT and his history with lack of spending......I know there are still many TT supporters, but there is definately is a shift begginning to occur and more and more people are questioning his judgement.

    At the end of this offseason when we still havent picked up anyone because the turner and moss deals have fell through I cant wait to see how many more come over to the dark side..

    Like it or not a shift is begginning and I am proud to have been one of the first to jump off TT's sinking ship.

    There is plenty of time for Ted to do something. Yes, if he hasn't done anything by camp then there can be some questioning, but by the way he's been talking I think he does have something underway. He didn't get where he is for being a moron, he knows what he's doing, he's not Matt Millen.

    Well, refpack, I hate to say it but rather it be you than Brett who obviously does not share you point of view. I mean jumping off the ship.

    Maybe he stayed because he see's......

    1) Replacing Carroll with Woodson an improvement.

    2) Finding a group of able bodied LB's vs having ONE a good thing.

    3) Shoring up a weak "D" line who couldn't stop nothin' rather comforting.

    4) Swapping out a tired and old "0" line with some young bucks with a future as being pretty positive.

    5) Seeing DD and Jennings as talented as any #1 and #2 he could hope for kind of inviting.

    You call it "sinking" and Brett calls it "more talent than I have ever seen".

    I think I'll go with Brett.

    Yes, by god, there's still a ways to go. Kind of shows how far away from a legitimate NFL team we were by the time he got here don't it?

    You might very well be the first one off the ship. And you could very well end up on the island alone before it's over. Oh, I forgot, you always have Pyle. Damn.

    I guess I can live with that.

    All the sweet, green icing flowing down
    Someone left the cake out in the rain
    I don't think that I can take it
    'Cause it took so long to bake it
    And I'll never have that recipe again
    Oh, no!
