It's been a week since this broadcast last Monday after the draft. But you know what? You gotta save the good stuff for weeks like this. I just started diving into the WDUZ Sportsline broadcast from the day after the draft when Ted Thompson doubter extraordinaire Harry Sydney said this about his initial Packers draft grade:
I look at initial grade in the sense of Ted Thompson resisted a lot of different things, he resisted going to get - You know he could have gotten Michael Crabtree, Aaron Maybin all those different things. There's a lot of ways he could have gone - and everything fell perfectly for him to get that one guy in my opinion ... that one guy that can change the face of the team and that's that defensive nose-guard..B.J. and he went and got him. And I was impressed with that move. That kind of fell in his lap, but I was really impressed with Ted when he went up and got Clay Matthews the 3rd.. because we had talked about the USC linebackers and having to get a linebacker ... in my opinion what he did not only did he make the Packers, put them in position if these guys play through. But guess what? Their history is of making plays. He got the guys - not the guys that - oh the safe pick - he got the guys that can make this team better Right Now. I applaud him. You wanna give him a grade? He's got an A+ in my book.
