GREEN BAY - Packers general manager Ted Thompson isn't necessarily the most public guy when it comes to praise or criticism of a player, but when asked about backup quarterback Vince Young's progress, he gave a very understanding report of his situation.
"We've put a lot on his plate in a short time...he's doing OK," Thompson told reporters Wednesday.
"A pleasant fellow to be around, seems like a team guy, is trying to learn, compete as fast as he can."
The team chose to sign Young as a free agent during the initial weeks of camp, instead of earlier in the off-season where Young could have gained more of an education on the Packers' offense.
