We know you “In Ted We Trust” clowns are out there.
God forbid we criticize the Green Bay Packers or Ted Thompson! They are above reproach and always get everything right!
Except when they don’t.
And in not signing free agent tight end Jermaine Gresham, the Packers missed an opportunity.
The Packers were a team with a need. They had a guy who filled that need and presented virtually no risk and all kinds of potential reward.
Maybe it wouldn’t have worked out, but why not even give it a shot when you have nothing to lose?
Sometimes I agree with you, and sometimes I don’t. This time I do. He would have been a very low-risk pickup with lots of upside. Oh well!
I do not understand why TT is considered as a good GM. His first second and even third round draft picks are as often as not bust. People talk about his later round picks and free agents making the team, but if your early round picks are busts then someone has to make the team. His picks are more often then not reaches and generally would of been available in later rounds, Case in point he chose a safety not even ranked in the top 150 while passing on a NT (Eddie Goldman) or a line backer.
Damn, I was really hoping this was gonna work out… I agree that this was only minimum risk….
Arizona made the right move – it would be that much more painful if he turns out helping the Cards beat GB in Phoenix this season….
Deliberate Ted. I like the fact Ted is deliberate. Being deliberate as a GM works well for long term strategy. Being deliberate in the short term can result in not pulling the trigger when quick fixes, or short term replacements are needed. I do admit it can be frustrating as a fan when Ted does not appear to be active, or react quickly in free agency.
In regards to pulling the trigger. It may be optimistic to believe Goodell will initially serve Quarless 2 to 4 games. It was rumored Goodell was going to issue Plaxico an 8 game suspension for accidentally shooting himself, prior to receiving his prison sentence. That dip shit Quarless purposely fired 2 shots into the air in a populated area, allegedly. That to me seems considerably more reckless to the public than Plaxico’s actions. I wonder how many people including young kids were in the vicinity of those stray rounds?
Richard rodgers better produce
We will never know how the interview went. Perhaps he just isn’t a Packer Guy. Potential locker room cancer. PASS.
Then you CUT HIM if he is a cancer! There was NO RISK here!
What a bunch of fucking dodes. Last thing this team needs is 256 pounds of Cincinnati cancer. I mean if fucking Lewis doesnt want this guy, why the fuck would the Packers? Lewis, you know the coach that would give Aaron Hernandez another shot if he got out on parole….you know cuss black guys need the breaks, no matter how much a piece of shit they are.
Good riddance to saying NO to Bengal trash.
I agree with you, Monty.
Should have given this guy a 2-year deal… tisk, tisk
And when the Packers don’t get it right you bet Total Packers is gonna let you know they know how to get right! That’s why they’re write a blog about coaching/scouting instead of actually doing it.
The problem is that
1) gms have to do what’s best for the team and
2) gms have to do what’s best for the team.
We don’t know anything about why TT didn’t sign him, so how can we legitimately say we should have?
Get rid of Quarless no matter what. Or brainless, whatever. Go Pack Go!!!
