Coaches Shouldn\'t Forget About Thompson

Coaches Shouldn\'t Forget About Thompson

Mike Montgomery and Jason Hunter are set to return to action this week after sitting out the last few games due to injuries. Now that they are back, Packer coaches appear set to relegate rookie Jeremy Thompson back to the bench.

That would be a big mistake.

Not only did Thompson more than hold his own against the likes of Walter Jones and Tony Ugoh the past two games, he was getting better with each snap. The jump he took from the Seattle game to the Indy game alone was notable. It would be a mistake to keep him on the bench, as he was playing better than Montgomery or Hunter. Here's hoping McCarthy and Sanders keep Thompson in the rotation a good deal, if not the starter outright on Sunday. He at least should be playing in front of Hunter, who's contribution outside of doing his best KGB-fly-safely-by-the-offensive-tackle imitation has been minimal, to say the least.

What's your support for this statement? Also there's no way Hunter plays ahead of Thompson, except on third downs when they were subbing KGB in for him anyway.

From Bedard's article - "His playing time figures to be cut with Montgomery and Hunter due back" - I hear what you're saying - just hope he plays more than either of them. Think the kid has a chance to be a real player.
