Monday Musings: Murphy’s Choice

Nathaniel Hackett was hired by the Jets last Thursday morning, and by mid-afternoon, plenty of talking heads had Aaron Rodgers re-joining his former offensive coordinator in New York. And while that could happen, a strong recommendation from one best friend (Matt LaFleur) to another (Robert Saleh) probably played a bigger role than any potential trade. […]

Gray Expected To Join Falcons

At the end-of-season press conference held earlier this month, Matt LaFleur said he didn’t anticipate making any staff changes. He was either fibbing or hadn’t yet spoken to defensive backs coach and passing game coordinator Jerry Gray, who, according to a report from NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, is expected to be hired by the Falcons […]

Packers’ 2022 Season Awards

There wasn’t much for Packers fans to celebrate in 2022. The team, expected to contend for the Super Bowl, finished 8-9 and missed the playoffs for the first time under Matt LaFleur. Still, a handful of people deserve recognition for jobs well done.   The following four players and one assistant coach managed to shine in […]

LaFleur Maintains Status Quo

If you think it’s highly unusual for an organization coming off a very disappointing season to make no changes to the coaching staff or the front office, you’d be correct. In the past decade, there have been 30 instances of a team winning at least five fewer games than the season before, and nearly 3/4 […]

Time To Move On From Rodgers

I thought the Packers should trade Aaron Rodgers in 2021. The reigning MVP’s value would never be higher, and the team was coming off a disappointing loss in the NFC championship game. General manager Brian Gutekunst chose to hold onto his 37-year-old QB, and while I disagreed, I understood the thinking. I also thought the […]

What’s Nixon Worth?

A year ago, the Las Vegas Raiders chose to release little-known defensive back Keisean Nixon rather than tender him as a restricted free agent. Today, the former South Carolina standout is a freshly-minted All-Pro kick returner and very likely GM Brian Gutekunst’s top priority to re-sign in the next couple of months. That begs the […]

Monday Musings: Getting Booted?

I will do something tonight for the first time in over four decades – root for the Cowboys. As detestable as I find owner Jerry Jones, it would be nice to see Mike McCarthy win at least one playoff game. He’s a decent man and a good coach who’s been unfairly maligned for the past […]

5 Quick Things: GB vs. DET

After re-watching Sunday night’s game against the Lions, here are five seven things worth knowing:   1) Tight end Robert Tonyan seemed to be moving a little better late in the season. That’s not a surprise considering he tore his ACL last November. It’s probably not a coincidence that two of his three longest receptions came […]

The Case Against Joe Barry

Playing pretty well for a month of the season and almost sneaking into the playoffs as the 7 seed shouldn’t keep the Green Bay Packers from making the sweeping changes that are needed after the iconic franchise took a step back for the second year in a row. If general manager Brian Gutekunst and head coach […]

Monday Musings: Season Over

The Green Bay Packers made things very interesting by winning four straight late in the season, but those who stuck a fork in them at 4-8 were proven correct at the end of the day. Even while beating Chicago, the Rams, Miami, and Minnesota, the three-time defending NFC North champions never resembled the teams that […]
