  1. A new LB coach, Kirk Olivadotti, has been added. Reported by PackerNews, and posted by Zach Kruse: https://packerswire.usatoday.com/2019/01/18/packers-hiring-kirk-olivadotti-to-be-mike-pettines-lbs-coach/ edit: I just noticed this was posted earlier...so consider it an encore. ( - : #
  2. Ha,Ha,Ha...It’s good to take turns.
  3. Agreed. And part of that plan is to let Gute and LaFleur build their own coaching staff. I think the Packer brass, true to form, is holding their cards close to the vest.
  4. Divisional Playoff Round

    X-man Pederson, and Foles for that matter, lost all their mojo in N’awlins...14 points to start the game and then shut out the rest of the way. And MERCY, that Brees to Thomas (#13) connection was devastating. The Saints struck gold when they drafted him-big, physical, fast, and sure-handed.
  5. Divisional Playoff Round

    Coach Schwartz is unsuccessfully scratching his head trying to figure out a way to stop the bleeding...Philly needs a turnover, NOW.
  6. Divisional Playoff Round

    Lame TV talking heads sound like a broken record with their ‘week 11’ references. The playoffs have nothing to do with ‘week 11.'
  7. Divisional Playoff Round

    I called Doug Pederson the X-Factor in last year’s Super Bowl, and that proved to be true. His strategies and gutsy calls helped him outfox the fox, Bill Belichick. I see it the same way in today’s game. With an assist from Jim Schwartz, who has proven to be a solid DC for the Birds, I think Philly has a fighter’s chance in this game, even at ‘the Dome.’ Regardless, I just hope for a more entertaining contest than the beatdown in Foxboro. AND, as was posted by somebody else, a Philly win bumps the Packers up a few spots for their double dip in the draft.
  8. Trade for Antoino Brown?

    Pittsburgh will have plenty of suitors for Antonio Brown, but I’d be shocked if Green Bay is one of them. Sounds like agent-hype to me...
  9. From Silverstein’s post: "Whitt and Pettine worked well together, the source said, and it’s likely the decision to fire Whitt was made by the front office.” -Depending upon who the “source” is, I’d question how much he/she really knows about Pettine’s relationship with Whitt. -There’s also a disclaimer in that the quote states, “...it’s likely the decision to fire Whitt was made by the front office.” -I think the Packer “front office” would be willing to take the heat for dismissing Whitt, rather than implicitly throwing Pettine under the bus the day they’ve officially announced he’ll continue as DC. Bottom line for me is that we may never know for sure. But as I stated in a previous post, I think it will be quite interesting to see what kind of professional interest JW garners from other teams. That to me will be a true indicator of how he’s viewed among his current NFL peers.
  10. On Whitt jr: Personally, I’m not shocked or really disappointed. I’d think Pettine endorsed this, maybe even suggested, they let him walk. That’s just my unqualified opinion... It will be interesting to see if other teams are clamoring to bring him onboard; that will be the litmus test as far as I’m concerned. The Packers obviously have a different vision for their DBs and their future performances, and they must not think JW jr. is the guy to make it happen. Another variable may be that Whitt recently expressed his desire to be a DC or HC in the future. The Packers may believe he’s got that kind of marketability, and are being proactive now, rather than reactive if they lose him in the relatively near future. Regardless, it’s another interesting development!
  11. There aren’t (m)any OC or ST candidates that are head and shoulders above the others, so I think these reporters/bloggers/twits are just throwing out names for clicks. It seems like coaches/coordinators in which Green Bay might normally have an interest are not available. The High Command may have to shake the trees a bit on this process. Here’s Zach Kruse trying to make a case for Defilippo as OC: https://packerswire.usatoday.com/2019/01/11/matt-lafleur-packers-should-consider-john-defilippo-for-offensive-coordinator/ Zach also posted an article about an interview today with Nathaniel Hackett: https://packerswire.usatoday.com/2019/01/11/packers-interviewing-former-jaguars-oc-nathaniel-hackett/ I even read something about Major Applewhite! We shall see...

    I found this interview, from ESPN Milwaukee, quite interesting. It’s with Joe Rexrode, a Nashville Tennessean beat reporter for the Titans: http://www.espn.com/espnradio/playPopup?id=25714795 Rexrode makes some good points about Gute/Murphy getting him the personnel they need to fill in the gaps, and makes several other insightful comments related to Coach LaFleur. I came away feeling encouraged. I especially thought his, “If you want him, maybe you get him a year early.” LaFleur will need to grow into the job, but the more I learn about the young man, the more I like this hire.

    Personally, I’d prefer a cardboard cutout of some bad a$$ like, __fill in the blank____.
