Wanna see how a franchise goes downhill? Look at the 2004 GB draft...

The Green Bay Packers on Tuesday released cornerback Ahmad Carroll. Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson made the announcement.

 

Carroll, the Packers' first-round selection in the 2004 NFL Draft, played 34 games in three seasons, starting 28 contests. He had 104 tackles (95 solo), three interceptions, three sacks, 26 passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

 

Let's see...the draft of only two years ago now looks like:

 

1 25 Ahmad Carroll CB CUT

3 70 Joey Thomas CB CUT

3 72 Donnell Washington DT CUT

3 87 B.J. Sander P CUT

6 179 Corey Williams DT In the DT rotation

7 251 Scott Wells G Starting and playing OK

 

Having your 2004 draft net one starter at center and a role player in the interior line is an easy way to kill the team...thanks Sherm!

Not a big surprise.The coverage I saw from the Green Bay secondary last night may be the worst of all time.

Want to see how a franchise makes there way back?

AJ Hawk, Greg Jennings, and the rookie lineman are playing great right now. How many sacks have they given up the past 3 weeks? Fear not, Ted Thompson is a draft guru.

As far as Carroll goes, I think it was his attitude and inabilty to take blame for his mistakes and not learning from them that got him canned. I think this also shows us that Will Blackmon is getting real close to being healthy.

:D The worst of all time? They played decent the first half, and then just blew it in the second half. Charles Woodson actually looked good until he got hurt... I do see us taking a corner in the first this year.

Not only that but Carroll constantly was penalized for interrference. He never learned to keep his hands off of WR's and still cover. He had speed but never used it well.

 

He didn't seem smart enough to figure out how to play as a pro. I'm glad he and Roman are gone. Time to work for the future. I really can't see anyone being much worse.

Hardly. Carroll was the problem and not the whole secondary.

Someone will pick him up, probably by the end of the week.

every game i have watched the packers play, that guy was penalized for illegal contact or pass interference. i dont follow the pack much at all and was surprised to see the guy was still starting last night. i thought for sure he was demoted. its funny that they dont even demote him, just cut him free instead.

Manuel and Collins are embarrasments in coverage as well.

Shoulda taken Chris Gamble! I've always said it and will stick by that. We had a bunch of 6'4"+ WRs in the NFC North then and took a 5'9" midget, low Wonderlic idiot.

 

I hope our first two picks are RB and CB. Michael Bush, Adrian Peterson, Marshawn Lynch would help the O and an Antoine Cason, Darrelle Revis, Leon Hall, or Daymeion Hughes would shore up CB.

 

The front 7 is ok, the S are young, OL should develop, decent WR's (need another vet and more talent though) and if Favre comes back, we're solid at QB.

Didn't the packers draft new CB's because of the spanking they took from the Culpepper to Moss days prior to 2004?

Absolutely and GM Sherman's answer to 6'4" Moss was 5'9" Carroll. :D
