Packers GM Ted Thompson "to transition into new role"

  • Reports: Packers part ways with Dom Capers, defensive coaches

It's possible the Packers could extend McCarthy again or start over with a new deal once a general manager is hired.

Along with displaying strong velocity on his throws, Rodgers has scrambled three times for 16 yards, twice sliding to avoid.

But it appears that head coach Mike McCarthy's job is safe.

However, Thompson's last few years drafting have not been great and he has not given Rodgers the help on either side of the ball that he needs to win more championships. That season was preceded by Brett Favre retiring, trying to return and eventually being traded in the preseason.

Overall, the 54-year-old head coach has scrounged up a 121-70-1 clip during his 12 regular seasons to complement his 10-8 mark in the postseason.

Thompson played linebacker int he National Football League during the 80's before getting into the player personel side of the game. He replaced Mike Sherman as GM for the Packers in 2005.

Wilde reminds fans that the Packers gave former coach Mike Sherman an extension before he was sacked in 2005 by then newly hired GM Ted Thompson.

Ted Thompson worked as the former Vice President of Football Operations for the Seattle Seahawks from 1999 until 2005 when he left to be General Manager for the Green Bay Packers.
