Holy cow! Didn’t see that coming. As you may know I predicted a fairly easy Bears win last night. No way I could have predicted the Packers’ defense would be that good or that Mitchell Trubisky could be that bad. … Continue reading

Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst is certainly trying to improve the roster he inherited from Ted Thompson. He took a mild swing at free agency last year and came back with a full cut this year, signing four … Continue reading
The Green Bay Packers are in the midst of an offseason the likes of which have not seen around here since 2005. I know we had the general manager change to Brian Gutekunst last year, but this is different. The … Continue reading
The Green Bay Packers are in the middle of a pivotal offseason that could make or break the team for years to come. If the hiring of Matt LeFleur as the new head coach turns out to be a failure, … Continue reading
The Green Bay Packers have found the man to lead them for hopefully the next decade or more if all goes well. And like they did with former coach Mike McCarthy, they hired a young, up and coming offensive mind to lead the team. This time, with Matt LaFleur being named head coach, they went even younger and less experienced.
You all already know the background of LaFleur so I won’t go over that. I will say, he was definitely on my radar since probably about the middle of December when I started to look at guys that might be available. Certainly wasn’t at the top of my list, but I liked his background. And in recent weeks, from what I have read, I liked his demeanor over the likes of Jose McDaniels or Adam Gase.
I actually was intrigued a little by Jim Caldwell and Joe Pagano. Caldwell took the Lions to the playoffs two out of four years for heaven’s sakes. Pagano was a victim of one of the worst general managers in NFL history and still only had one losing season. But I was still was hoping for new blood, and damn, LaFleur is that! Dude wasn’t even in the NFL in 2014.
In what was not a deep field of candidates, I think the Packers did the right thing in jumping on LaFleur. He will keep Mike Pettine on defense and I think, again, from what I read, he will be a good fit with Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers needs a new challenge and if this works out the way we all hope, Rodgers will be the next quarterback playing into his 40s.
I can’t wait for his opening press conference. But even before hearing it, I am happy with the choice, and think it was the right decision to move quickly to get him.
The Green Bay Packers are officially eliminated and of course now the only conversation left it whether or not to play Aaron Rodgers the last two games. One thing is sure, sitting a healthy two-time MVP for the purpose of … Continue reading
I really wanted to jump right in Sunday night and give my take on the firing of Mike McCarthy. But after a few (or a dozen) cocktails I figured it was best to hold off and soak everything in first. … Continue reading
The Green Bay Packers fell to 4-6-1 after another road loss, this time to the Minnesota Vikings. Who would ever have thought an Aaron Rodgers’ led team could be this bad? But, as head coach Mike McCarthy says, “we are … Continue reading
The Green Bay Packers are currently on the outside looking in at the NFC wildcard race according to the NFL playoff picture. Luckily for the Packers they still have 7 games remaining to decide their own fate. In four out … Continue reading
The Green Bay Packers won a game Sunday against Miami that they were supposed to win. It evened their record at 4-4-1 and leaves them in 7th place in the NFC playoff standings. That means, according to head coach Mike … Continue reading
After yet another loss that dropped the Green Bay Packers to 3-4-1 it is becoming clear that this team is not who we thought they would be at the beginning of the year. Instead of contending for the Super Bowl … Continue reading
