Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson takes full responsibility for Vince Young not having a chance to make their roster.
“Frankly, it wasn’t fair to Vince,” Thompson said, per Black Sports Online. “We threw a lot at Vince. A lot on his plate. He was a good teammate. The fault is probably mine. Should have brought him in sooner. The fault is mine.”

While Vince Young's performance in the preseason played a big role in him getting released, general manager Ted Thompson said Sunday there's someone else who also deserves some of the blame.
