Ted Thompson should be held accountable for this move. There is no way he is interested in doing what is best for the Packers. Spencer Havner was a beast and this could cost us a championship.
Let’s get real for a second. Spencer Havner was perhaps the 3rd or 4th tightend, and the 7th or 8th linebacker on this team. He was not a beast, he was a hard worker that had maximized his potential a long time ago. In fact, outside of special teams, there really wasn’t a spot for average guy like Havner anymore.
There are probably ten or more guys on this team that if given the chance could be the 4th string player at a position on the opposite side of the ball. What Spencer Havner did was unique, but certainly not special.
I wish Spencer the best of luck, but the Packers merely cut a 4th string tight end. Yes, he is a football player, no doubt. But a pedestrian one at best.
As far as costing us the Super Bowl, don’t be stupid.
