Default Is thompson the best GM

Not on drafts. Reese blew up the draft and Giants won title. More of a comeback award.

Packers' Thompson named top NFL GM
3/25/2008 9:53 am

Ted Thompson of the Green Bay Packers was selected the general manager of the year in a poll of fellow GMs and other NFL executives conducted by The Sporting News.

Thompson received 19 votes, beating out Giants' general manager Jerry Reese, who received nine. Ten other NFL executives received at least one vote.

In his third season at the helm, Thompson oversaw a team that went 13-3, winning the NFC North Division and advancing to the league championship game.

"Ted understands every aspect of how an organization works. That's why he was able to put together a winning team so quickly," Packers former general manager Ron Wolf said.

If he's not the best in drafting, then why did he win? He doesn't spend on free agents. Ted has drafted successfully in every year he has been here, finding gems. Yes, I know that the Giants rookies played a part in their SB win, but I think Eli, Strahan, Osi, Plax, etc. were the main reason they won. Those were all players Reese had nothing to do with. Ted built his team from scratch and led them to the NFC championship in three years. He is definitely the best GM.

yeah, TT had a couple good FA siginings (Woodson, Pickett)
Thats about it. Drafting has been almost picture perfect
Draftees who have started:
Hawk
Jennings
Jones
Colledge
Spitz
Collins
Moll
Hodge
Jackson
Wynn
Jolly
Cole

And he traded for Grant
Picked up Bigby and Donald Lee i believe
Found Ruvell Martin and got Koren Robinson back in the league and out of jail

well, this was Reese's first year being fully in charge. The Packers probably had the bigger turn-around season as well.

But Reese and the Giants easily had the best draft considering the output last year from rookies

I see no problmes with Thompson winning this year. If Reese has another good draft, then he should be the top pic. I think Polian has won at least three times himself.

Is he the best GM? No. That's Bill Polian. Ted Thompson didn't draft Favre, and unless Rodgers turns into Favre, he can never put that notch on his belt.

But did he deserve the award this year? Yeah I think that's fair. This year's Giants team had Acorsi's fingerprints all over it.

Bill Polian. Simply amazing at retaining his top players, making no names look good, and drafting for success.

But he has won before, so that is the reason he did not win I guess.

Ted Thompson is getting there. He's probably been the 2nd best drafter since he started, after Bill Polian.

That's far too small of a sample size. Not to mention that Thompson was more often than not picking in the top half of the draft. It's easier to have good drafts when you have bad teams, and Favre.

Oh I've already said that I sold Favre far too short. He actually was washed up at the end of Mike Sherman's reign. Mike McCarthy, as terrible as his plan against the Giants was, doesn't get nearly enough credit for getting Favre to play within his limits again. It really reinvigorated his career.

I still think Rodgers has a better chance of beating the Bears next year than Favre would have, however.

He's had 3 drafts. I said he was the 2nd best drafter over the last 3 years. Yes it's too small to determine if he's the overall best GM in the NFL. But like I stated 3 years is 3 years. I didn't imply that because he's been the 2nd best drafter over the last 3 years that he is the best or 2nd best GM overall. But if he continues on this pace he will be there soon.

Reese did do a good job though brining in guys through FA for little price and making big impacts. Also our draft was phenomenal. Reese shouldve gotten a little more than 9 votes at least

if we were having this discussion a few years ago, the ozzie newsome would most surely be in this discussion...that is before kyle boller truly busted and michal clayton tooka big step backward...although i still say that when push comes to shoove, he hits on his picks more then 90% of teh GMs in the league.

But did he deserve the award this year? Yeah I think that's fair. This year's Giants team had Acorsi's fingerprints all over it.
Both Accorsi's and Reese's. The problem with Accorsi was he was too active in FA, and often kept around talent or drafted talent that was injury prone. Reese got rid of all our cancers, and injury prone guys and drafted guys that fit our system.

Thats another thing Accorsi never did, Accorsi didn't draft guys into a system, he just drafted whoever he thought was good. Reese specifically targets talent that is maximized under the systems theyre being drafted into: examples being Ross, Alford, Smith, and Bradshaw.

I don't disagree with Thompson getting the nod, theres a lot of good GMs in this league. Reese could very well be a one year wonder for all we know.
