    Packers' Thompson calls draft best way to build

    [size=13pt]Packers' Thompson calls draft best way to build[/size]

    GREEN BAY, Wis. - Packers general manager Ted Thompson plans to stick with the draft strategy he's spent five years creating — trading down when the time is right to garner more picks and players.
    Any man who afflicts the human race with ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood. - H.L. Mencken

    And to much of the dismay of many Packer fans, that is how he continues to address the building of this team.

    Patience is a virtue that many in sports be it General Managers, Owners or fan cannot grasp; want long term success, one must carefully build thy roster.

    But even I think he is maybe taking that to an extreme with the shifting of the defensive scheme, but time will tell.

    What?
    You don't believe your HC makes all the calls when it comes to "Roster Development".
    Amazing.
    ;D
