Former GM Casserly: Packers have daunting task, but right GM in Thompson

In an NFL where the system is set up for parity, the Packers have a daunting task to stay on top, CBS analyst and former general manager Charley Casserly said. The Packers will host a Rams franchise trying to remove themselves from the doldrums this weekend in a matchup of teams on opposite ends of the spectrum. "Itís very difficult because the system works against you," Casserly said about the Packers. "Youíre picking late in the draft. A lot of times, as you have success you keep your good players, that squeezes your salary cap. Maintaining success is very difficult. "What the Packers, under (Ted) Thompson has done is tremendous. Ted is as good as anybody, if not the best in football, in drafting players. Look at how many young players they get that come through for them. Clearly the move on drafting Aaron Rodgers was brilliant. Obviouisly, heís one of the premier quarterbacks in the league right now. Every time you line up youíve got a chance to win the game."
