We took issue on Tuesday with the failure of the Packers to offer more than the Seahawks offered for former Bills running back Marshawn Lynch.
Apparently, we’re not the only ones who thought it was stupid.
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that players, coaches, and scouts were upset with the failure of G.M. Ted Thompson to get the deal done.
Mort says that the Packers coveted Lynch in the 2007 draft, when he was the 12th overall pick, four spots before the Packers selected defensive tackle Justin Harrell.
And so the Packers will continue with Brandon Jackson and John Kuhn churning out less than 50 yards each per game, putting more pressure on a passing attack that won’t be nearly as potent once the weather turns ugly in Wisconsin.
