  1. Mediocrity comes (or runs) in cycles. It happens. To some, more than others. Not a big deal to me. Enjoy your days in the sun.....but it'll always just be Utah πŸ™‚
  2. And my point is I'm kidding. Take a joke. Laugh a bit.
  3. Yeah.......I got it......but it's UTAH πŸ™‚
  4. Hmmmm.....didnt know that. GM's in title only.
  5. Yeah....but....I mean.....at the end of the day.....it's still Utah πŸ™‚
  6. Ian Rapoport - The Washington Football Team officially announces Martin Mayhew as its GM to report to Ron Rivera and work alongside Marty Hurney in the front office. //// The GM reports to the HC?
  7. Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy on Ted Thompson: "You will hear from a lot of people who will tell you great things about Ted Thompson and what he meant to them and every word will be true. But when I think about Ted, who he was as a man, will always carry more weight than what ...he did professionally. There has never been a finer human being to walk the playing fields or have a presence in the scouting rooms."
  8. PackersWire - The name of the man who helped bring a fourth Super Bowl title to Green Bay will be immortalized inside Lambeau Field. The Packers announced the team will honor former general manager Ted Thompson by installing his name on the Lambeau Field facade before next season.
  9. David Bakhtiari - My sincere condolences to the Thompson family. Ted was a great man and great GM for the Packers. I’ll always remember my draft day phone call. He asked me if β€œI’d have his back?” And I responded with saying β€œNot only his back, but Aaron Rodgers back too.”
  10. Dont know / cant say. Havent read up a whole lot on the guy, but what I have (or what stood out to me) was that he's not an innovator or X's & O's guy. He's more a leader / motivator. Okay - nothing wrong with that - so long as your GM/Scouts are delivering talent and you surround yourself with a good OC/DC. He was in Miami before? Dont see that organization meeting those standards. How DET's set up to support him (?) - I cant say. Dont wish him ill - but wont be rooting for him a whole bunch either πŸ™‚
  11. Gil Brandt - I'm saddened by the news of Ted Thompson's death. No one worked harder at scouting. He was a scout's scout. Admired how he made the call to draft Aaron Rodgers. Don't know of another GM who would have had the guts to do that. Andrew Brandt - He looked at me and said his mantra: β€œTrust the Board.”
  12. Matt Schneidman - Notable Ted Thompson draft picks: Aaron Rodgers (his first ever) Nick Collins Greg Jennings James Jones Mason Crosby Jordy Nelson Josh Sitton Clay Matthews T.J. Lang Bryan Bulaga Randall Cobb David Bakhtiari Davante Adams Corey Linsley Kenny Clark Aaron Jones
