Green Bay General Manager Ted Thompson must be a heck of a gambler. Packers fans, you better hope he's Chris Moneymaker + Phil Ivey + the guy from Rounders. So far, he's let WR Greg Jennings, DB Charles Woodson and WR Donald Driver go. Yes, only 85 REALLY hurts. He allowed the Falcons to steal RB Steven Jackson for a few extra pennies (a position of NEED) And what has he done? Signed LBs Brad Jones & Robert Francois and brought in a backup K who couldn't make the 49ers last year.
The Packers are really banking on young players (again) to step up like they did in 2010...2011...2012.... I have no idea what's going to happen in the draft (nobody does with TT) but Teddy T's most recent draft picks MUST STAY HEALTHY this year if they hope to get back to the NFC title game and beyond. Right now you can't depend Nick Perry & Jerel Worthy to give you 16 games next year and even if they do, how good are they? I don't even know what their time schedule is at this point.
Everybody in the NFC North is making moves..well, everybody but Green Bay. We'll have to see how that turns out...We should all still subscribe to "in ted we trust" ...but for how long?
