Ted Is Sorry About Micah Hyde

The Green Bay Packers never bothered to offer defensive back Micah Hyde a contract when he hit free agency. We thought there was good reason for that — Hyde got $6 million annually from the Bills and that’s a tough price tag to swallow for a guy who, despite being valuable, would be a backup in Green Bay.

On the flip side, losing Hyde certainly doesn’t help the biggest problem area on the team.

Well, Packers general manager Ted Thompson is sorry.

In Buffalo, Hyde is getting something he wouldn’t be getting in Green Bay. Other than the fat paycheck, Hyde is getting a chance to start at safety.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Morgan Burnett are entrenched in the safety spots for the Packers for at least another season. Burnett’s contract will expire after the upcoming campaign. The Packers have — and will likely exercise — the fifth-year option on Clinton-Dix’s rookie deal, which also technically expires after the 2017 season.

So Hyde will finally get his shot elsewhere and we wouldn’t be surprised in the least if he performed better than what the Packers have.

    Sorry?? You’re sorry you didn’t even make an offer to one of the more talented guys on your shitty secondary?? Arguably the shittiest secondary in the league! “Nah, he’s one of my all time favorites but I’ll just let him walk without even making an offer. I’m glad he’s seems to be happy.” I am really starting to fucking hate this guy..

      Some fans starting disliking him years ago, but what do they know. Maybe they saw this trainwreck coming, and called it years ago.

      Maybe they just got lucky…idk.

        I never said I liked him then either, and I’m not looking for some “I told you so” nonsense. There’s a difference between disliking and “really fucking hating.” The things he does are so predictable and underwhelming it’s starting to become unbearable.

          I agree, i think there is a difference between disliking someone and hating someone.

          I just don’t use the word hate and i choose not to hate anyone. To me it’s self destructive.

          CHEESE, PF4L is the Lord and Master of “I told you so”. In this case he actually has been critical of TT for quite some time but PF4L is also not adverse to claiming “I told you so” when he has not. Of course, hard to eep track when he writes as Mordecai and Monty and maybe Bonham and writes opposing viewpoints on the same matters. I guess he can say “I told you so” pretty much all the time about everything. All while never admitting when things he said were way wrong.

          Here is the composition of what Monty/PF4L/Mordecai writes:

          0% Taking responsibility for errors made
          5% Useful or at least interesting information/views
          10% “I told you so”
          40% Blather
          45% Abusiveness
