As polarizing as Ted Thompson is for many Packer fans, it's hard to argue that he has built a young and talented team.

I agree with most of your choices about TT's best moves except for two. Mike McCarthy hired Dom Capers because he had no choice or he would lose his job. I doubt that Thompson had much to do with recommending him to Mike. If he did, he should have fired McCarthy and hired Capers.
Trading Brett Favre after a 13 - 3 season and a OT away from the Super Bowl is idiotic and it was proved to be idiotic because they went 6 - 10 the next year and lost their first playoff game as a wildcard the following year. Favre improved the Jets from 4 wins to 9 wins and then got the Vikings to the NFC Championship game and beat Thompson twice the following year. Please take off your rose colored glasses.
If the Packers don't win this year, they have to re-tool at CB and OT because Woodson, Harris, Clifton and Tauscher are OLD.

That is why Lang and Bulaga are there, young guys to fill in when MT and CC are no longer productive. Tramon Williams will replace Harris, and Woodson has 2-3 years of playing left. Its gonna be hard to replace Woodson, no doubt.

Ted can add another "best move" by submitting his resignation. Then the Packers can start heading in the right direction. Perhaps a few division titles to start with. Eventually, there may be a chance of winning the Conference and Super Bowl.
