GM Ted Thompson shares in blame for Vince Young not making Packers' roster

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 blame.

Himself.

In the preseason, Young completed only 26 of 49 passes (53.1 percent) with one touchdown, no interceptions and three sacks (71.6 rating) in four preseason appearances.

The Packers may enter their regular-season opener at San Francisco next Sunday with unproven B.J. Coleman as the backup to star quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Asked if he was prepared to open the season with the two quarterbacks he has on the roster, Thompson said, "That's where we are right now, sure."
