But ted thompson has no guts. The Packers have no chance to win the super bowl next year. I believe this is a bridge year for the Pack. I also believe The packers are content with being who they are. they're content with 1 super bowl and don't feel like they need another. They're content with being a 6 seed and going on a magic carpet ride to the super bowl. Which won't happen again

The packers to me are a lot like the boston Bruins in the NHL they win once and don't feel content to go out and make the team better. the Bruins are content to roll 4 lines and not go out there and make the ballsy move

Every year in the NFL you have these teams who "fire a shot heard round the nfl". Why can't the Packers do it? Give the Jets a 1st give them what they want. Are they afraid the jets will draft well with those picks and make the tradelook bad.? No worries because the Jets are the Jets and will always be the Jets

Get out of your comfort zone packers because the window is shutting. Just my 2 cents. Most won't agree with me and thats fine

Actually Packers, The Packs Secondary was good, You just couldnt see it because they had no pass rush.

I feel your pain!! As a die hard Nola Saints fan, I had the same feeling that you have about the Packers. After we won the Super Bowl a few years back, its like well we won one finally, thats all we need. Just started letting guys go and made no huge moves to upgrade in free agency.  And that is why we looked like trash this past year, not because Sean Payton wasnt on the sidelines(although that put quite a damper on things) but because we are just content with being the same team every year.  It was nice fooling everyone with the deep ball and high octane passing game on that miraculous super bowl run, but nobody is falling for it anymore.

Philly thought NMandi Asoghua (I don't care the spelling Lol) was the answer too...

Safeties are never the answer to fix a D....it's a glorofied position because the media just love guys like Ed Reed and the memory of Deon Sanders.....Revis will never be an island maker again unless he plays on a team with 4 all star pass rushers.

As a packer fan, I think they are fine....maybe a key offensive acquisition away from another superbowl, dare I say wes welker?

They have to save some bank to re-sign Rodgers and the Claymaker.

parcells went over list of corners who got paid big $$ in free agency and stunk.

off the top of my head over the years

asomougha, rodgers-cromartie, deangelo hall, asante samuel, dre bly, brandon carr

add in revis is injured currently, you have to pay him mass amounts of $$ so thus cutting other areas of team, and you have to trade probably at least a 2nd round pick, its probably not a plunge teams will make unless desperate.

none of these corners are getting big $$ for free agency this year and a team like the pack has shields who they tendered and t. williams.

corner is not a big need for them.  pass rush and linebackers much bigger need.

i am a raider fan, my team is desperate so save me the pity party lol

well jennings goes 2 minnesota fine by me GL Jennings what a pill he was toward the end of the year complaining about his contract. GL In Minnesota Jennings thanks for the 2 td's in the super bowl

Jackson goes 2 atlanta. Not sad or happy about it. If the Packers had gotten him fine if not fine

Thank god we didn't sign Welker. Welker reminds me of a guy like Michael Bourn in that guys who hit  asingle and steal a base don't do anything for me. Guys like Welker who catch 120 balls and have 4td's do nothing for me. I'd rather have a 70 catch guy who scores 10 td's

Look if Ted Thompson and i talked he'd say packers if we trade for revis there's no guarantee we'd win the super bowl. And he's right. The packers may not win with Revis BUT They're not winning without him

Now you have Aaron and his contract and he's gonna take the Packers to the cleaners. Those people who say he'll take less to have great talent around him... not happening Aaron will sign for something like 7 years 140 million  84 million guaranteed

If joe Flacco can throw the ball only to the right and get 120 million what's Rodgers gonna get Boys? Keep living in your box Green Bay and we'll go 11-5 and hope 2 go on a magic carpet ride again. If thats the standard...yikes
