Green Bay Packers: Is Ted Thompson's Philosophy Ruining the Offensive Line?

There are 7 comments on the BleacherReport story from Apr 2, 2010, titled Green Bay Packers: Is Ted Thompson's Philosophy Ruining the Offensive Line?. In it, BleacherReport reports that:

Back in the days of Vince Lombardi, the offensive line had an almost communist quality; the offensive line was an integral part of the team, but you never knew anyone's name, there were no stats to keep track of and the only time you ever noticed a lineman was when they screwed up.

Good analysis and argument, but for one thing: Lombardi's offensive line hardly consisted of anonymous automatons. It's the only Packer offensive line I can still name in its entirely: Skoronski/Masters, Thurston, Ringo/Bowman. Kramer, Gregg.

I agree, but another thing: moving guys around when there's an injury is not unique to the Packers. The sad fact is that the backups just aren't very good.

When TT got to GB we were in need of a makeover; Favre's luster was winding down and it all came apart in 2005 when we went 4-12. The good thing about 2005 was we got two future pro bowlers in the draft. To answer this thread TT did draft Sitton, Spitz, and College so we have decent guards. Lang will probably work out at RT and Wells still has a few more years of quality football. TT needs to focus on the tackle position this draft and next.

Is Ted Thompson's Philosophy Ruining the Offensive Line? It would be more accurate to say that Ted Thompson's philosophy is ruining the Packers. It can reasonably be argued that the poor philosophy is disproportionately affecting the O-line.

Big surprise! The big words are confusing Da Bears. I'll try to keep the discussion (that means what we say) to one syllable (that means small) words so you can keep up, okay? I doubt it will be enough for you to understand me. Oops. Sorry. I do not think you will know what I say even with tiny words.

LMFAO @ Duh Bears. It's true what they say about Bear fans. Wow! Illinois (that means the place where most Bear fans are from) needs to spend more money on education (that means books and such) so that Packer fans don't need to school you. LOL
