Please concentrate on your 1st paragraph when i make my statement..The trend is 'move west young man'
The whole genius of TT has been wrapped up in WR's and Aaron. If not for Aaron, TT would be labeled a bust and probably all ready relieved of duty. He has not built a defense, or an offensive line, or a running game.
With the steady stream of players moving to God's Country, Pro Bowlers and others having their most productive seasons in their careers, TT is at the teetering point. A 15-1 season, followed by high expectations and another division title has been truncated by dismal showings in the playoffs. GB has been outmaneuvered by more balanced teams, and shown to be pretenders when it counts. Desmond Bishop may never be the same player, but he also may be. Woodson wanted to stay, Driver wanted to stay, Longwell wanted to stay, Sharper wanted to stay, Jennings wanted to stay, Bishop wanted to stay.......and of course Favre wanted to stay.
Yet, TT found it wise to jettison all those players and now it's coming back to bite him where it hurts. GB loses a lot of leadership this year, whether or not it will be replaced is the big question. Living off of Aaron has been entertaining, but heaping more responsibility upon him with personnel moves could backfire big time. I think the last couple years have proven that Rodgers can't do it all, whether or not the packer O'Line and defense can do their part is the real question. Rodgers isn't going to get any better, AD isn't going to get any better, it's the rest of the team that will bring a 'team' to the promise land.
Three first round draft choices just may be that ace in the hole.
TT Signed or drafted Aaron Rodgers after how many teams passed on him..TT Traded Favre and drafted Clay Mathews with the Favre pick...in 2010 the DEFENSE that TT and Co. built had a huge hand in winning the SB. He let Sharper go and replaced him with Nick Collins a def. step forward.IF Jennings wanted to stay,he would have taken the 10M GB offered him,but, he chose the moneya nd when he didnt get it,he moved to Minn ( as they were desperate enough to sign him to the big money,,just not as big as he wanted)..TT has proven and is still considered one of the best GMs in the game and he has something Minn. GM may never get in MN..A Super Bowl ring
