Quote:
Schneider found thumping safety Kam Chancellor in the fifth round in 2010 and used his first-round pick that year on Earl Thomas, who has become the best ball-hawking safety in the game. Thomas' past as a receiver (and ability to catch the ball) was part of what made Schneider so high on him, as well as his versatility.

Those are just a few of the sage moves spun over the past four years. There was the drafting of left tackle Russell Okung, the patience to wait out the market and scoop up pass rushers Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett in free agency last offseason, and the steal of edge rusher Chris Clemons from Philadelphia in a trade. Not everything has been perfect (signing Sidney Rice and trading for Percy Harvin, both injury-prone receivers, has not paid dividends), but nothing is in a league this competitive. The evaluating acumen and depth the Seahawks have amassed might be best summed up by the fact that 14 players who couldn't crack Seattle's roster this past offseason wound up playing elsewhere in 2013.

"But he'll listen, too. It's not like, 'I want to do this!' He's not like that. He's inclusive, and he'll listen to others. And I always loved [that] about him. He's a great communicator. His people skills were always really good and that's going to always help him along the way, whether it's getting along with coaches or getting along with players or fellow scouts. That's going to carry him a long way."


Huh. A GM with people skills. Imagine that.

Clearly unaware that White got the largest contract for a defensive player in NFL history.

TT has no people skills. No wonder we suck. Code = cracked.

Why does this need a topic on the Packers board?

So we can take a step back and realize our GM has no people skills. Then we can discuss Ted's lack of personality. Which equates to him being a below poor general manager. I'm not gonna lie, pretty excited for this thread.

This really isn't relevant, or anything pertaining to the Packers. It can go in the TAPT thread if need be.
