10:04 AM ET 02.09 | Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson is under contract for two more years. If Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy has his way, Thompson, 61, eventually will agree to a contract extension and work beyond the 2015 season. At or near the top of Murphy's short list of potential future Packers general managers no doubt would be John Schneider, who has served as the Seattle Seahawks GM for the past four years and helped construct a Super Bowl championship team this season. Schneider is a Green Bay area native who worked for the Packers under Wolf and Thompson. He would seem like an ideal fit as Thompson's successor. "Green Bay will always be home to him and his family," said former Packers president Bob Harlan, who saw Schneider's talents firsthand. "This is home to him. Some day that might be an extremely appealing job for him."

What a pointless article, unless it's purpose is to get Schneider a massive new contract in Seattle!

I don't see Thompson retiring for at least the next 7 years. Pointless article.

So - how long does Schneider have left on his current deal?

Well then - seems appropriate to extend Thompson through 2016.

Hey Otis if this GM is looking for a job ... oh nevermind.

Not sure why Schneider, who has now pretty solid job security for the foreseeable future and a great non-meddling, fairly generous owner in Allen, would want to leave for anyplace else at the moment. I suppose the words of Harlan, "Some day that might be an extremely appealing job for him," should simply be taken as wistful and the article as "wish we could get a piece of that pie." Meh.

And let me tell you, it IS frozen. And I'm not talking about Madonna's Southern Hemisphere here either.

In two years or lets say two more drafts, TT will be run out o GB and the city will say don't come back in town pal. IMHO he is the worst drafting GM in all of football:
Datone (sat on the bench a lot) Jone's; Perry (Always hurt and or if not slow and out of shape); Worthless Worthy, and these were his top picks.
Lacy was a no brainer for a team in need of a running back. Thus, he was there and available and Ted needed him. The rest of that draft a total bust, ditto the previous year.

"IMHO he is the worst drafting GM in all of football" ??????!!!!!! Say what?

I know if I was an NFL owner, this is the guy I would want running my drafts.

You think about a lot of things on the ice fishing at 10 degrees below zero and the beer running out.
