How the Packers’ 2015 Offseason Moves Worked Out


Ted Thompson

The Green Bay Packers’ 2015 offseason was typical in some ways and atypical in others.

They signed many of their own free agents (typical) and watched a number of them leave (atypical). They signed no one else’s free agents (typical), but released a number of players still under contract and non-tendered others (atypical).

How did those moves work out?

Let’s review now that we have a season in the books.

Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.

    Hawk and Jones were a dumpster fire. They needed to be shit canned a lot sooner

    Packers should have re-signed TE Colt Lyerla. 4.3 speed. Another mistake…

      We didn’t even give the kid a chance! What a shame.

      I heard Colt once ran a marathon because it was “on the way”…..

      … and he once won the Tour-de-France, but was disqualified for riding a unicycle

      Colt Lyerla doesn’t always take painkillers, but when he does he like to drive.

    The video tape never lies. I’m not sure why Ted falls in love with the players he picks, except for the fact that it has something to do with satisfying his own stubborn ego.

    If you or I made an error by picking an underachieving player (employee), we’d likely own up to it admit we misjudged the player (employee) and move on by picking up a quality free agent from another team to replace him. Pretty simple, huh? Not so in Ted’s world.

    Sheesh this guy

    Did not know that “Beluga” was ranked that lowly on run blocking.
    Cobb is a bit overpaid, but that was dictated by the market, not by the fact that he could be a WR1 all by himself (i. e., commanding the most attention of a defense and still being able to make impact plays).
    Regarding the CBs, either Ted has a hawk eye for them, or Joe Whitt is a heck of a coach in bringing them up to NFL speed… maybe both are true.
    All in all, 2014-2015 has been good offseason, save perhaps some needed middle of the road signings at TE and maybe at ILB.

    Yes! A linebackers coach stated once that “Brad Jones was his starter”. Where would that instruction have come from…
    But the 2014-2015 offseason it looks like Big Ted swallowed part of his ego.
    He let the Fantastic Two ILBs walk, and we did not have to see K. Thornton or C. Bradford struggle.
    Having Goodson on the team is something I still do not understand. I mean, what did they see in those practices that made they keep him?. But finally Gunther was let in, so all is well that ends well.

    I’m my opinion Cobb wasn’t paid like a number one. Bryant and dymarius Thomas got 5 years and I believe 70 which is cheaper than his deal. They are number ones. How the only number two that Cobb played close too is the floaties in the toilet. And still didn’t earn number two money or his contract. Seen Davon house play a few times luckily we did right. I would rather see Jeff Janis at left take than barclay

    Ted Thompson should sign Ladarius Green. If he does not do that, somebody needs to file a petition to get him fired and lets get that petition popular if he does not sign Green.

    I love me some Byran Beluga!

    Bulaga got our RB coach fired. Maybe the new RB can step over to Oline and teach Bulaga how to run block. Wait that requires some athleticism. Oh well. Linsley is a mauler. I like to see them try him at right tackle.
