    Those first two posts are spot on accurate, regardless of the poster’s favorite team.

    The truth is the truth.

  2. Congrats to Richey and Brett on the promotions. Gute continues a long standing tradition of GM’s in Green Bay that always have had a very strong player personnel department under them. Look around the league in other front offices, a number of teams top guys started in Green Bay.

    It was good to see Ted Thompson out on the practice field at mini-camp yesterday. Some outsiders that are clearly ignorant may not know that Ted still is in the Packers front office and is Senior Advisor To Football Operations.

    We know TT still has a title.

    Hopefully, for the Packers sake, no one listens to him anymore.

    He doesn’t make any decisions, just has an office to sit in and try and remember the good old days….
