Ted Thompson Is Clearly Losing It And It’s Hard To Watch
Rob first pointed this out after Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson gave his NFL combine press conference — the guy is seriously losing it.
It’s as if he’s no longer able to string together a coherent sentence.
That was evident at the combine and it was evident when Thompson came to the podium following round one of the draft.
Frankly, I can’t even believe the Packers released this video. Just have a listen to the rambling, nonsensical drivel.

Look, regardless of what I think about Thompson, the guy looks and sounds like his mental faculties are in decline. If you go watch the whole performance, Thompson gets confused about the trade he just made — unsure of whether he has the first picks in the second and fourth rounds (he does).
Part of this makes me sad, mostly for the Packers, but also for Thompson. He’s having trouble getting words out, completing sentences… it’s excruciating to watch.
The guy is 64. He’s getting up there and based on what we’ve seen lately, I’d say there’s clearly something wrong.
