GreenBay Packer Nation

No News is…No News

Ok packer nation… the draft is just a few weeks away and what have we heard from Ted Thompson? Practically nothing. It’s frustrating, I know. We hear nothing about who the Packers are interested in, who has been interviewed or worked out by the Packers and it’s frustrating because we want to know. Especially as the actual draft day steadily approaches. And what makes it worse is that, while we all know who we think the Packers could and should draft…we all know the draft comes down to the final board of TT and his minions.

Ted Thompson has a strategy here, no matter how frustrating his particular strategy may be. However close to the vest TT is with the fans…it translates to keeping other teams in the dark as well. And when it comes to the draft, that can be important. The last thing we want is for other teams to have any solid information on who Green Bay covets, especially as the NFC North champs (Go Pack!) and picking at number 21.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

So while it’s hard to be patient and I know many Packers fans are frustrated by Ted Thompson’s seeming gag order on any and all information about the draft, Thompson has drafted a very solid team for us picked up an Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews. Give the guy 9 picks in this year’s draft and we stand to make solid improvements, especially to the defense.

Go Pack!
