Well fine. We’re one step closer to Anthony Smith taking over as the starting free safety of the Packers and relegating the most overrated player on the Packers’ roster to the bench. I mean, seriously – you only need to hear Collins open his mouth and speak to know that he’ll need every moment he can get with Capers and Perry to grasp the defensive installation. If he wants to throw away that time, it’s more than fine by me.
(As an aside: If Thompson is indeed going to build through the draft, perhaps he should stagger the lengths of his contracts and/or not cave in to mediocre running backs’ contract demands after half of a very good season. Just a thought…)
