Gene Wojciechowski of ESPN.com has written a no-holds barred, scathing column about Packers GM Ted Thompson saying he and the Packer organization are guilty of what they’re accusing Brett Favre of doing: waffling.
Wojciechowski’s flaming keyboard provides these gems:
“Thompson knows what would have happened if Favre had been issued a helmet and a jersey today. Everybody knows. Favre would have been the best quarterback on the field.”
“Thompson isn't interested in putting the best product on the field. If he were, he'd let Aaron Rodgers, his handpicked successor to Favre, compete for the starting position.”
“If Rodgers can't handle the pressure of Favre's presence and open competition for the job in July, what makes you think he can handle the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field in December? But Thompson doesn't want the best man to win. He wants his man to win. So no quarterback bake-off.”
“But nobody has bungled this situation more than Thompson. From the disingenuous ‘We Care About Favre's Legacy’ stance, to the convenient and false statement that Favre could return to the team, Thompson has written the textbook on mismanagement.”
It’s beautiful and dead on. Thompson is the #1 villain in this entire fiasco.
