What will Ted Thompson do?

According to reports, Green Bay Packers GM Ted Thompson, the coaches and scouting staff began their roster pow-wow at about 3 p.m. Central time today. By the time they are done, whether late tonight or continuing until the 3 p.m. deadline Saturday, the Packers will have their 53-man regular season roster set.

But between now and then, everyone speculates. If you want to read one person's notion of what Thompson will do, check out Green Bay Press-Gazette sports reporter Rob Demovsky's article here. It's an interesting take on things. Where do agree? Disagree? You can gather for yourself where I might agree and disagree with him by checking out my post from earlier today.

In the meantime, you have to feel a bit like you do as a fan going into the NFL Draft weekend. Lots of anticipation, which will soon be coupled with moments of surprise and disappointment as the final roster is announced, which may include trades, as well.

Exciting times. Especially for a team with the potential to go all the way this season. The roster that Thompson et al put together in the next 21 hours will go a long way to determining just how likely that is over the course of the upcoming 16 games.

Go Pack Go!!!
