Bucky Books article about Josh Rosen's situation wherein he made the following comment about Favre:

Reflecting on my time with the Packers in the 1990s watching Favre grow from castoff to MVP, he thrived in an adaptable system that put the responsibility on his shoulders to put the offense in the best position to succeed. Although he created big-play opportunities with his magical improvisational skills, No. 4 excelled in an environment with coaching excellence around him. He had a series of high-IQ teachers (see Mike Holmgren, Sherman Lewis, Steve Mariucci and Andy Reid) with the communication skills and knowledge to challenge him and grow his game.

Thought came to me to reflect on how good a coaching staff that was..........

High-IQ coaches....hmmm...something #12 has been frustrated by the lack of....reportedly of course.

Thats interesting. Google Earthed it and thats a fairly desolate / isolated section of town :)
Guess they dont have enough people to support a public school system.....so they head north?

The families that live in the little triangle of land at the northwest corner of the chimney are residents of the US and Minnesota. I suppose they had their own schoolhouse at one time, but now the students travel by bus into Canada and then south back out of Canada into Minnesota to  their schools—and then back again every day. The border points are manned by video/ telephone, and people passing through are obligated to check in/check out via the video link to Canadian authorities. No exceptions.

 I do think it is really interesting that the Packers will get a chance to play in front of Canadian football fans.

Thats interesting....again. I chose a place called Angle Inlet to look at. There's not a whole bunch of towns up there. There really isnt much to it at all except a lot of trees and given the scarcity of houses, I'd think home schooling might be considered - as opposed to trying to find a nearby school. In any case, it appears that they're bordered to the north by a body of water - and I cant see a road or bridge that crosses it heading north into Canada - so why dont they just drive south? Granted - you have to go where the few available roads will take you......

Some basic info on Angle Inlet.......

Angle Inlet is a census-designated place (CDP) and unincorporated community in Angle Township, Lake of the Woods County, Minnesota, United States. Its population was 60 as of the 2010 census. The community is part of the Northwest Angle, the only place in the contiguous United States north of the 49th parallel; it is the northernmost census-designated place in the contiguous United States. The French built Fort Saint Charles nearby in 1732.

Angle Inlet has the last one-room school in the state and a post office with a sign stating that it is the "Most Northerly P.O. in Contiguous U.S." To travel to Angle Inlet from other parts of Minnesota by road requires driving through Manitoba, Canada.

I wonder what these people do for a living........

For so few homes, they sure do have a lot of boat docks................

Think this was awkward for Wolf/Gutey at all?

 

 

Can't imagine it would be. By all accounts the personal relationship between everybody is as strong as ever.

Unless you're referring to whatever the hell that handshake/fist bump thing in the first picture. But I feel like that's just the standard Ted Thompson level of awkwardness that everyone just be acclimated to.

Update on some 2019 Green Bay Packer Jersey numbers
You might need a program at TC with all the changes Gute has made to this roster

21...   somehow CB Natrell Jamerson maintains his hold on this iconic number
22...  is now drafted RB Dexter Williams, with Kapri Bibbs surrendering his number to the new guy
24...  is now Josh Jones, he traded his 27 away, preferring the 24 going forward
26...,  Savage takes his college number from earlier in his career
31...  is Adrian Amos, who switched from his 38 in CHI
35...  is now RB Kapri Bibbs, he formerly wore 22
38...  remains with Tramon, that was Amos' number in Chi
44...  is rookie LB Ty Summers as previous owner LB Morrison is out the door (and off the plane)
48...  is Kabien Ento, former WR converting to DB
52...  is no longer Frank Winters, with Rashan Gary dropping some college-level math on us: 5 -2 = 3
53...  was Perry, now it's Donnerson who had to yield his 91 to one of the Smiths
57...  is now Adam Pankey, he formerly wore 77, but FA Turner wanted that one
57...  is also LB Greg Roberts, with 90 dudes in camp there are some doubles
72...  is OT Gerhard de Beer which is absolutely perfect, given that there are exactly 72 ounces in a six pack
74...  is Elgton Jenkins who has an extra G in his name and another G for his position.
77...  is now FA Billy Turner who poached it from Pankey in a bloodless coup
87...  is now Sternberger who goes to the same tanning salon as Jordy
89... is still Marcedes Lewis, matching up his age and jersey number is a nice touch
91...  is Preston Smith, who wanted 94, but couldn't ****** it away from LongArmLowry
93...  is still Reggie Gilbert, who's still wearing Gilbert Brown's old number
96...  is rookie Kinglsey Keke and definitely NOT Muhammad Wilkerson
99...  is still Looney Tunes....and that's all folks

I don't think so.  Remember Ted wasn't fired per se, just moved to less demanding position which is probably what he wanted deep down anyway (he had been talking about retirement for a while.)  He's still technically employed by the team as the "Senior Advisor to Football Operations" which probably means he's on good terms with everyone in the building (he just shows up when he can/wants to).

Ted Thompson works for the Packers still in a lesser role.

Not referring to Ted. Referring to Elliot Wolf getting passed over for the GM job, getting asked by Gutey to stay, then basically going to cleveland for a similar job Gutey offered. All while Ron Wolf making pissed off comments that Elliot didn’t get the GM job.

Not staying they don’t get along, just has the potential to be some what awkward.

I'm slightly surprised at this mainly because I thought Coleman was a better fit than Carson for the ZBS. I felt Carson was too stiff and heavy footed to implement the one cut and go running style required for the scheme. Coleman is quicker and more agile.
