    Actually more teams probably had Bak at OC than OG, Sherrod and Bulaga were both the #3 rated Tackles in their drafts.

    Rodgers needs to work on his dump off passes.

    I'm one of the bigger TT guys, and even I scratch my head at some of his picks. I think 2011 was the last draft I felt good about. He's still top 5 and more likely a top 3 GM.

    Ties into prev posts how you try to dismiss not being mad Rodgers was drafted..Sort of all makes since now...you are accused of not liking the Rodgers draft pick and you say it was made up..

    I dont think I seen a Brett sig on any forum other than his own site since he was with the Viks..Which btw isnt running anymore

    Bus is Bretts man.. Maybe you should have used Dwayne???? Then only a select few would have known

    I think he's a top level GM - not much more you can ask for, he'll manage the cap well - he'll at the least get several solid contributors from each draft class.

    To throw him under the bus for the one year he mismanages the backup QB spot when our super durable ALL Pro QB's stupid collarbone decides to hand the lions the division.... idk. Seems spoiled on our part as fans, we've got it great compared to a ton of teams out there, we'll be right back in it, hopefully with better luck on the injury department.

    Nope sorry.

    He got lucky on Flacco, Rice and Haloti Ngata. Without those guys, Ozzie is running a sub 500 team.

    Thompson is one of the very best GM's in the league. He did a fabulous job quickly resurrecting the team after the awful Sherman experiment and the disgusting mess Favre created with his childish antics. I don't have any stats to back this up but I'd bet a higher percentage of his draft picks and UDFA's are still playing than just about any other GM in the league. He's handled the salary cap expertly. Take a look at how many of our core guys are locked into contracts and only Rodgers and Matthews have big guaranteed numbers. I think the future looks fabulous for this franchise.

    That is correct. In fact, many fans will follow their favorite quarterback when he moves on to another team.

    No, of course I didn't know. But I did know Rodgers was in the discussion for the number one pick overall and the draft "experts" weren't agreed on San Fran's pick. Because of that I thought Rodgers was certainly a value pick at #24. I also knew that Harlan had corrected his mistake of promoting Sherman to GM and went back to the franchise structure that had one man in charge of football operations full time. And I knew while Sherman (through no fault of his own) had absolutely zero experience and training for the GM job, Thompson had been mentored by Wolf and had been training for the GM job for more than a decade.

    But value picks don’t always work out, even great value picks. So I didn’t know how good Rodgers would be.

    And you know all this how? That right, you don't. I had no idea that you couldn't like BF and AR. Are you allowed to hug both TTs and Ron Wolf's ...

    I mean you are clearly sounding like a lunatic. Can you not grasp that I was a big fan of BF and now I am a huge fan of AR. One does not preclude the other. I don't want to push you over the edge here, but I also liked Majic.

    I like whoever the current QB is. Loved Brett when he played and AR now. Also all the QB's in between starting with Bart Starr up to AR. Well I didn't like TJ Rubley so much. :mad:

    Zeke was the only backup Packer QB worth a crap.

    I know 3 NFL team scouts (They can't give out their team's info, but they will give their personal thoughts), one (who claims to be)from BLESTO, and a HS scout for Rutgers. Whether or not the organizations had him as a Center I don't know, but 4 of the 5 said they saw him as a Center, but said he could play Tackle in the right system. Bak also said in an interview (JS I believe) that some teams worked him out at Center.

    Got it. I still think the Packers saw him as a tackle/guard and Tretter as a C. That's the only way it makes sense for them drafting those two in that situation. I can't imagine in any scenario where they draft to C's since EDS is adequate but not special.
