  1. I would love Jordan Tripp or Carl Bradford today. I would like Urban as well, but the defensive line is getting pretty crowded.

  2. Well we know after round 3 that Teddy dropped the BPA philosophy. I hope he takes your advice Al…

  3. Heart, talent, and speed. ILB, OLB, CB/S type, and C. Hope for some luck coming the Green Bay way.

  4. We obviously need LBs. However, We missed an Ohio St C in Brewster now lets not miss on Linsley.What about De’anthony Thomas as a returner also has great hands.

  5. Sure the 49rs turned in their own card? C insurance Martin, ILB Borland to replace Jones/Hawk and Niklas for an impact TE. Wasn’t old Ted supposed to be making those moves instead of those reaches? This draft deepest in years. Packers didn’t need 9 projects, just 4-5 productive picks to address specific needs. Plenty of receivers AR could make look good. ILB and TE crucial and he whiffed as the limited amount of quality players were picked while TT napped. Ins. policy for Tetter would be nice too. Now it’s on to draft and pray. Trader Ted? Hilarious! Ten years, two great picks years ago, no free agents worth a shit (5 in 10 yrs) a few good picks out of some 80 over the years, and here we go again. Check the Pro Bowl rosters lately. How’s the albino owl doing? By the time this loser walks away, AR will have passed his prime and the mess he leaves will remind those around from 67-92 of the bad old days.

    1. Perhaps the most important trait for a talent evaluator to have is the ability to make calm level-headed assessments based purely on observable evidence and reasonable predictions, without allowing your judgment to be clouded by wild emotion or personal bias.

      When certain posters continually plaster the board with ranting, spitting, name-calling, angry diatribes against TT (as if they themselves had somehow been horribly wronged by this evil, evil man), it becomes super-abundantly clear that they don’t have that quality.

    2. BAG: you are such a freaking bore – same stuff, over and over and over. Do you have these saved so you can just cut and paste?

      1. Al- BAG’s comments and constant repetition, of the same stuff over and over, says a lot more about him then any point he can possibly be trying to make about TT. BTW AL, thanks again for another great post and analysis. Go Pack Go! Thanks, Since ’61
