Ted thinks the Packers are fine just how they are...
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had an interesting article wherein Thompson says the Packers roster isn't really in need at any position, and he doesn't feel much pressure to sign anyone in free agency. He also says they don't need any of this years draft class to step up and become starters. He's quoted as saying that they have, "a fair group of players."
Um....hello? This is the same team that went 6-10 last year right? Fair players don't win championships!!!
The article mentions a really interesting piece of trivia, only 4 teams have not signed an unrestricted free agent from another team, the Packers and 3 other 12 win teams. They won literally twice as many games!!
I think that TT is a little delusional about the state of his team right now. Not that it's time to panic after one bad season, but it seems that TT and the Packers management really believes that they can take a bunch of low round draft picks and 2nd stringers from other teams, "put them through the offseason program", and them make them into a winning team. I'm trying to stay optimistic, but I'm starting to feel that "staying the course" may not be the best option.
