Former Packers general manager Ted Thompson, who is currently in a senior advisor role, will be in attendance inside the Packers draft room for the upcoming NFL Draft. My first reaction was, what?

The Packers have made a couple of free-agent splashes, now it's time to go bargain hunting -- for a wide receiver. 

The Packers have 10 free agents, but who are three Green Bay should try to keep? 

What should the Packers do about Morgan Burnett? 

Ted Thompson's method didn't fail he did. Now, the Packers need a GM that can win the draft again. 

What started out as a simple reorganization has turned into a power play within the halls of 1265 Lombardi Ave.  

Nathan Jahnke joins the show to discuss the players a new Packers general manager and defensive coordinator will have to work with.

If the Packers don't choose to make Eliot Wolf their next general manager, another team will.

This is about coach Mike McCarthy. With Ted Thompson being reassigned in the organization and with defensive coordinator Dom Capers already out, the onus falls on McCarthy.  

I’m going to start by saying I’m a big Davante Adams fan.

Before deciding what players to keep or get for 2018, the Packers have to decide what to do with general manager Ted Thompson. He is the Packers’ gatekeeper and has mainly used the draft as his talent stream.  

Clay Matthews has never been one to be a vocal leader about anything. He's the guy says that the Packers have to take things one game at a time — which drives me nuts.   

But the crux of the problem is Brett Hundley. Who exactly is he and why has he regressed so much from just a week ago?  

The Martellus Bennett saga is confusing and disturbing. It’s bad enough that he was going to pout his way to retirement, but then he threw respected Packers team physician Dr. Pat McKenzie under the bus.  

The Packers signed seven veteran free agents prior to the 2017 season, this is how they are doing. 

It looks like the Packers have found their coveted feature running back and the wide receiver position is just as crowded.

But in order for that to happen, the Packers should go after Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. The disenfranchised cornerback has been suspended by the Giants for throwing his coach Ben McAdoo under the bus and isn’t exactly a shining beacon of cohesiveness.

Aaron Rodgers has played a huge role in the Packers 4-1 start, but so have the 2016 and 2017 draft classes. 

Through four games, Bennett looks nothing his 2016 self. He has lacked explosion, has appeared sluggish and has displayed butterfingers with four drops.

This game isn’t about the offense. Nope, this game rests with the defense.  

Training camp started July 27 and since then Thompson has added long snapper Brett Goode, linebacker Ahmad Brooks, linebacker Chris Odom and defensive tackle Quinton Dial. The reason that these additions are interesting is because it has gone against his modus operandi by bringing in veterans to take jobs from draft picks.

The Packers are entering a new season with thin spots again. However, the spots have changed to defensive line and linebacker.

Could the Packers choose not to sign any undrafted free agents to the 53-man roster for the first time in Ted Thompson's tenure this season? 

I’m hearing it again. Training camp is still 16 days away and there is chatter about Dom Capers being on the hot seat. Is that even possible?

Mike McCarthy is a problem solve and this offseason, his mission has been to improve the pass defense. 

Rumors and innuendo haven’t stopped flying since Chiefs general manger John Dorsey was shockingly told to leave.

If the Packers were smart, they would bite the bullet and pay Aaron Rodgers right now. 

Ted Thompson's willingness to change hsi ways in free agency will be rewarded by the play of Davon House and Jahri Evans.
