Ranking Ted Thompson’s top 10 picks in his 13 drafts as general manager. A number of great players didn’t make the cut. Do you agree with the rankings? Are there any players that didn’t make it that you think should have?

Brett Favre: The best and worst quarterback [Lombardi Ave]

In victory and defeat, when he was throwing touchdown passes or interceptions, Brett Favre was an entertaining quarterback. A great read by Lombardi Ave’s Clay Shannon.

Should Green Bay target Jimmy Graham in free agency? [Lombardi Ave]

Should Green Bay consider making a move for Jimmy Graham if he hits free agency? Tight end remains one of the team’s biggest needs this offseason.

Green Bay unlikely to use franchise tag [Lombardi Ave]

Looking ahead to free agency, it’s unlikely any of Green Bay’s free agents are franchise tagged. Morgan Burnett is the only real candidate, but that’s still highly unlikely.
