Thank goodness for C.D. Angeli over at Tundra Vision. Just an excellent piece today from an admitted Thompson critic who is not afraid to give Thompson his due when it is warranted. I appreciated this in particular:
Now, there are probably many things folks would like to see listed, but I am going to list only those that I feel are pure. I don’t want to commit the journalistic sin of offering positives with qualifiers. For example, while I could say Thompson made a great move in allowing Marco Rivera to move on, I would then counter it by saying “BUT I was disappointed he didn’t have a better plan in place to replace him.”
First of all, if it is indeed a sin, I am on my way to hell on the express train. As someone who attempts to write about the Packers every day, I can’t tell you how difficult the above is. I think it also points out how tough Thompson’s job is and C.D. does a great job pointing out some things that Thompson probably doesn’t get enough credit for.
