Morning roundup: Ted Thompson's one draft weakness is halfback

Nov. 30, 2012
 

In his column this week, Pete Dougherty writes about Ted Thompson's inability to supply the Packers' with a quality halfback during his nearly eight years as Packers general manager. (http://pck.rs/VdrfmV)

Writes Dougherty: The fact is, the Packers haven’t had a good rushing game since before Thompson, when Ahman Green was one of the league’s best backs in the early 2000s.
