Thursday Thoughts: New Linebacker

For one of the few times in the past 30 years, Packers fans don’t have a lot to be thankful for on the fourth Thursday of November. Their favorite team is in the midst of a losing season and saddled with an old quarterback, Joe Barry, and an unsightly cap. So when you gather with […]

10 Defensive Coordinator Candidates

Barring a miraculous turnaround by the defense in the next half-dozen games, Matt LaFleur will almost certainly fire coordinator Joe Barry in January. And then the fourth-year head coach, who’s already shitcanned four assistants, will look to hire somebody proven and well-respected to take over a talented group that has vastly underperformed this season. In […]

Snap Judgements: Week 11

After rethinking about Thursday’s game against the Titans, here are three things worth discussing: 1) Watching Green Bay get outplayed by the Titans, I couldn’t help but think about how little impact the past three drafts had on the outcome of the game. Of the 28 players selected by GM Brian Gutekunst, only four were […]

Thursday Thoughts: McCarthy’s Return

After the next 17 days, there probably won’t be any fans left who haven’t seen just how far the Packers have fallen with their own eyes. That’s because the NFL’s most disappointing team is scheduled to be on national television three times – on three different networks – between Sunday and November 27. Anyway, here […]

Snap Judgements: Week 9

After rethinking about Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions, here are three things worth discussing: 1) Perhaps clocks were set ahead two years instead of back an hour on Sunday morning because Green Bay’s loss to the Lions was what I thought the Packers would look like after Aaron Rodgers was gone and the front […]

LaFleur Keeps Mishiring

Mike Holmgren didn’t fire a single position coach or coordinator in his seven seasons with the Green Bay Packers. That’s because he believed it was his failure if an assistant was struggling, and it was his responsibility to make things better. Matt LaFleur, on the other hand, has already moved on from three coordinators. That’s […]

Snap Judgements: Week 8

After rethinking about Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills, here are three things worth discussing: 1) The Packers are bad, and while no one player is likely to change that, GM Brian Gutekunst nevertheless must do something before the trade deadline on Tuesday. Waving a white flag with nine games left in the season isn’t […]

No Gutes, No Glory

I‘ve never hidden my admiration for Seahawks general manager John Schneider. That’s why I wanted Mark Murphy to do everything humanely possible to bring the Wisconsin native home after Ted Thompson was relieved of his duties in 2018. I’ve also never hidden my disregard for Brian Gutekunst. That’s why I opined in the spring of […]

Snap Judgements: Week 7

After rethinking about Sunday’s game against the Commanders, here are three things worth discussing: 1) Stick a fork in the Packers because they appear to be done. Being 3-4 in the surprisingly weak NFC isn’t the problem. Being an unimpressive 3-4 is the problem. An offense led by reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers has sputtered all […]

What’s Wrong With The Offense?

Green Bay scored 197 points and averaged 394 yards en route to a 5-1 start in 2020. Two years later, the numbers are 107, 348, and 3-3. So what’s wrong with the offense? Sometimes the right answer is also the most obvious one. These current Packers aren’t nearly as talented, even though six of the […]
