    Did he make all the right decisions? no. Can you blame him for everything wrong with the Packers? no, the coaches have to take a lot of the blame. TT brought in the talent but, for some reason the coaches couldn't make them fit in the system.
    That isnt true at all... He had the luxury of picking and starting more guys which meant he would hit on more guys... How many teams picked as much as us and started as many rookies as us yearly? You will hit on 3 guys a year when you draft 11 and 9 make it into your starting unit... That isnt being a good draft guy... that is throwing a ton of crap at the wall with a few sticking... No other GM could get away with doing this and stay as long as he did without a guy like Rodgers constantly carrying the load and covering up for the lack of talent.

    See my recent post... Any GM that had a top QB and only ever built through the draft.

    The best teams always end up having a lot of picks from year in and out. That's actually what some people think is a strategy, because you increase the odds of hitting on a successful player with more picks.

    lucking into HOF QBs doesn't make for a great GM.....and certainly totally ignoring the FA market doesn't

    As a Bears fan, I'm obviously not an expert on phenomenal GM's (lol), but I've never feared TT as a GM. Outside of Rodgers, I'm just not impressed.

    Good move for GB. Seeing how the entire team went to **** when Rodgers went down should be proof enough that he's done a bad job getting talent. Rodgers just made up for his incompetence.

    Maybe now they wont surround Rodgers with a bunch of scrubs and hike the ball every play with 1 sec on the playclock.

A trained monkey could have GM the packers.
    They weren't all misses. Harrell, Sherrod, and Jones were awful first round picks but other than that I'm not real disappointed with his early picks. Clay Matthews, Bulaga, Nick Perry, HaHa, and Kenny Clark are all good players picked at the end of the 1st round. BJ Raji wasn't a great player but he had a few good years and had a big impact on our Super Bowl winning squad. I know King isn't technically a 1st rounder but I see a ton of potential in the kid.

    Don't get me wrong, he definitely had his flaws and bad picks..but it wasn't all bad.

    I'm sure many GM's could do better.

    This is pretty much exactly where I am with TT. I think he did an alright job during his time in GB. With that said I'm not overly upset to see him go, its time to have some new blood brought in.

    They should just let me GM... Id have done this 2 years after our superbowl win.... Its always fun to see the arguments for how loaded the packers weapons were until Rodgers goes down or said weapons go to other teams and **** the bed


    What a great ****ing day

    TT did a great job turning around the mess that Sherman left us financially. He did a very good job holding the fort together in a transition from the Brett Favre era and the Aaron Rodgers pick will go down as all time. But at this point he needed to move on. The team has been plummeting in talent and Aaron needs some help. Been a lot of misses between the draft and FA.

    Hopefully the new GM pulls out the check book that has been hiding for several seasons.

    Hopefully in his new role he'll still help with scouting. He's excellent with scouting WRs and is good with under the radar schools/players.

    This move was long coming, but I don't think the plan was for it to be this season. Losing Rodgers and falling apart like we did though was a perfect impetus to just go through with it now.
