Season is redemption for Packers GM Ted Thompson


IRVING, Texas (AP) -- The website devoted to Ted Thompson's ouster from Green Bay doesn't get many hits anymore. Not too much going on there these days, other than the message: "I'm not afraid to admit it. I was wrong. Congrats Ted."

"I get that a lot," Thompson said of the apologies that now flow freely in his direction.

But the Packers general manager is not very into "I told you so."

The man who put the Packers on the path that led to an ignominious exit for Brett Favre, his replacement by Aaron Rodgers and, now, a return to the Super Bowl, insists he's been around football way too long for smugness.

He says he'll cheer for the Packers on Super Bowl Sunday, then head back out on the road to do the job he knows best -- scouting for players to keep the Green Bay roster stacked for the future.
