I'm going to look back at the trades TT has made over the years and break them down.


(Saints) Mike McKenzie + Conditional Pick (Josh "Bernard Lay) for J.T. O'Sullivan and a 2005 2nd Round Pick (Nick Collins)
Now this trade wasn't made during the TT Era in Green Bay but the picks were made during that time.
Mike McKenzie CB: Last 10 games of 2004-2009 season. Never played a full season with the Saints and had his best year in either 2004 (6 defl, 5 int) or 2007 (17 defl, 3 int, 2 td.)
Josh "Bernard" Lay CB: Ty Law's cousin only made it through the preseason before getting cut by the Saints and moving to St. Louis. He "played" with the Rams for two seasons before going to the UFL and finally landing in the AFL with the Pittsburgh Power who he plays for currently. In mid 2011 he was charged with drug possession with intent to deliver and possession of a controlled substance.
J.T. O'Sullivan QB: He took two knees with the Packers before bouncing around to the Bears, Vikings, Patriots, and Panthers practice squads. (This guy started for the 49ers in 2008...I'm not totally sure how he beat out Shaun Hill and Alex Smith to be honest..)
Nick Collins S: A converted small school CB took over the Packers starting job in 2005 and only missed 3 games between the start of his career and 2010. Neck injury forced him to call it quits after the 2011 season but not after stealing 3 Pro Bowls and leading the league in interceptions (2008). Also won the Block Courage Away in 2009.
I think I'm going to say that the Packers won this trade just because of Collins. Made more of an impact than McKenzie from that point on and the other two players were a wash.

(Panthers) Third Round Pick (Atiyyah Ellison) for two Fort Round Picks (Marviel Underwood and Todd Herremans)
Atiyyah Ellison DT: He was waived and moved between practice squad and 53 man roster his rookie year after being a third round pick. He lasted a year in Green Bay before bouncing to six teams in five years. He's been out of the league since 2010.
Marviel Underwood S: Played in every game on special teams as a rookie. Tore up ligaments in his sophomore year so he was forced to IR. Next year he was cut, but the Packers resigned in mid season. He ended up getting cut to open a spot for Craig Nall, that's never a good thing.
The second part of this trade involves the Eagles. This pick moved four times before landing with Green Bay who traded it to Philly.
(Eagles) Forth Round Pick (Todd Herremans) for a Fifth (Mike Hawkins), Sixth (Anttaj Hawthorne), and Seventh Round Pick (Kurt Campbell).
Todd Herremans OG: Was named to the All-Joe team in 2008 and has started 88 games on the OL for the Eagles. More importantly he could have broken the double R curse for the Packers...
Mike Hawkins CB: The former AFL star started a game for the Packers his rookie year but was cut the next offseason.
Kurt Campbell LB: Was part of Green Bay's roster (53 or PS) through part of two seasons but never saw the field.
The last part of the trade was the sixth round pick that was traded to the Patriots.
(Patriots) Sixth Round Pick for Sixth Round Pick (Craig Bragg) and Seventh Round Pick (William Whitticker)
So this pick was traded from the Pats to the Raiders for what would be Anntaj Hawthorne. In return the Patriots got Matt Cassel and Ryan O'Callaghan...
Matt Cassel QB: Saved a season and parlayed Chief ineptitude into a high pick.
Ryan O'Callaghan OT: Stated seven games with the Patriots, filling in for injuries on the OL.
Craig Bragg WR: Got cut off the practice squab the November of his rookie year.
Will Witticker G: Played for two years in Green Bay and never returned to the league.
You absolutely have too look at this trade in parts. Green Bay won the first part of the trade with the Panthers. Their guy didn't even make it into the second year, the Packers at least did that and had more than one body. The Packers lost the other two phases of the trade. The Eagles got a lifetime starter on the OL while the Packers picked up two scrubs that would be out of the league in a year. The Patriots dominated that next trade because of the value they got back for Cassel. Even O'Callaghan alone would have dominated the Craig Bragg selection.

(Raiders) Marques Anderson for a Fifth (Junius Coston) and Sixth Round Pick (Mike Montgomery).
Marques Anderson S: Lasted a year with the Riaders and is now the HC of a Norwegian football team.
Junius Coston G: Seemed to have lasted four seasons with Green Bay, but I can't remember him making any impact at all.
Mike Montgomery DE: Started a couple games with the Packers during his off an on six seasons with the team.
I think Green Bay wins this one. At least they got more than a year out of their guys. Montgomery wasn't a bum really.

(Chiefs) Fifth Round Pick (Anthony Alabi) and Sixth Round Pick (Khari Long) for R-Kal Truluck
(Chiefs) Conditional Draft Pick (Jeremy Parquet) for Derek Combs
These pick for player trades were made before Thompson even though the picks did happen during his tenure. Not going to count them against him.

(Rams) Chris Johnson for Robert Thomas
Chris Johnson CB: Only started one game with the Rams during the year he was with the team but he also returned kicks.
Robert Thomas LB: A former first round pick out of Green Bay but was only 6'0". Played one year in Green Bay but started six games at Will.
Six starts>one start. I'll go with Thomas on this one.

(Jets) Conditional Pick (Chansi Stuckey) for Steve Morley
Chansi Stuckey WR: The Packers traded the Jets a draft pick for two years ahead. Caught a TD pass for Mark Sanchez's first TD.
Steve Morley OL: The former 1st overall pick in the CFL Draft was a member of the 2004 Packers team before signing with the Jets. He was traded to Green Bay but there is no actual record of him being on the team in 2005.
Anything is better than nothing so I guess Tempson looses this one.

TT's record: 4-3 in trades

Add in the draft day trades and we win so much. We have gotten Clay Matthews, Greg Jennings and Casey Hayward from the Patriots picks and they have ended up with Chad Jackson, Jake Bequette, Brandon Tate and Darius Butler. Complete domination.

(Broncos) Javon Walker for a Second Round Pick (Jimmy Williams)
Javon Walker WR: The Pro Bowl caliber WR was traded to the Broncos after the Packers couldn't agree on a contract terms with him. He ended up signing a 5 year deal worth at least 40 million dollars. He played two years with Denver. His first year he was 69-1,084-8 which wasn't bad at all but he only started 5 games the next year as he paved his way to Oakland. (Side note: I totally forgot about the Darrent Williams shooting. RIP.)
(Falcons) Second Round Pick (Jimmy Williams) and Fifth Round Pick (Quinn Ojinnaka) for a Second Round Pick (Daryn Colledge), Third Round Pick (Dominique Byrd) and Fifth Round Pick (Ingle Martin)
Jimmy Williams CB: The 37th overall pick in the draft was Jimmy Williams who hailed from the same school that the Falcon's leader went to, Virginia Tech. He started five games his rookie year. That offseason he was caught with possession of marijuana but didn't serve his five game suspension until 2008. He was cut by the Falcons before he could even serve the suspension with the team.
Quinn Ojinnaka G: He started seven games with the Falcons before being sent to the Patriots after he was charged with battery of his wife.
Daryn Colledge G: Started 80 games with Green Bay before moving on to Arizona for more money.
Ingle Martin QB: Was the third string QB for a year before getting cut.
(Rams) Third Round Pick (Dominique Bryd) for a Forth Round Pick (Jason Avant) and a Sixth Round Pick (Johnny Jolly)
Dominique Bryd : The tight end only played two years in St. Louis. His rookie year he only caught 3 passes.
Johnny Jolly DT: By his sophomore year he was starting in a deep DT rotation but his drug issues kept him off the football field.
(Eagles) Fourth Round Pick (Jason Avant) for a Fourth Round Pick (Will Blackmon) and Sixth Round Pick (Tyrone Culver)
Jason Avant WR: The Eagles target is still with the team and has caught over 206 passes from four different quarterbacks. He was part of the 2009 All-Joe Team.
Will Blackmon CB: He lasted five season on the Green Bay Packers roster as a CB/RET player. Twice won special teams player of the week in the NFL.
Tyrone Culver S: The Fresno State S only stuck around for two years with Green Bay but is still playing for the Dolphins today.
This is a looooooong one. Too much flash waves through all of this. I think Green Bay could have won the first two trades just because of the Colledge pick up. I think Blackmon and Jolly are better than Byrd too. Avant outshines the final trade though. 3-1 in the long trade.

(Patriots) Second Round Pick (Frank Jackson) for a Second Round Pick (Greg Jennings) and a Third Round Pick (Jason Spitz)
Chad Jackson WR: The former three sport athlete totaled 13 receptions his rookie year and was only active in two games as a sophomore. He got one more catch while bouncing to three more teams before landing in the UFL.
Greg Jennings WR: A two time Pro Bowl player, All-Rookie 1st team WR, and was named the #56 player in the league last year by NFL Network.
Jason Spitz C/G: He started 45 games for the Packers in his 5 season with the team. He now plays in Jacksonville.
Really, really lopsided. I recommend you guys read the book about the Patriots to see the whole story about this. BB actually wanted Jennings but there was a certain person in the Pats organization that was pounding his fist for Jackson.

(Texans) Samkon Gado for Vernand Morency
Samkon Gado RB: Played in 11 games with the Texans during his two years in Houston. Got one start his first year there and averaged 2.6 YPC his second.
Vernand Morency RB: Besides having the greatest autograph ever he stuck around Green Bay for two year. He only started twice for the Packers in those two years but he was 120-539-2 in the running game and 46-311-0 in the catching game.
Morency edges out Gado although he wasn't really that much of an impact either.

TT's record: 9-4 in trades

If nothing else, you got me to look up Morency's autograph. We totally dominated the Jackson/Jennings/Spitz trade. And to think I too liked Chad Jackson...

In all fairness it is kind of rude to just lay injured at their feet while the Lions defensive players are trying to hold a completely unrelated dance party.
