NFL Coaches: the Cream Has Risen to the Top

The league has 32 head coaches, all shapes and sizes – and ages, and personalities, and styles. What seems to matter lately, though, is the type of offense they’ve installed. The four coaches still standing are: Belickick, Reid, Payton, and McVay. All are solid and proven performers. Bill Belichick is the dean of current coaches. […]

LaFleur and Hackett Working Together Is Something to Get Excited About

The Packers continue their off-season moves to bolster a team that finished a disappointing 6-9-1 this season. The hiring of Nathaniel Hackett as new offensive coordinator on Wednesday is a controversial move that could pay off. Hackett has LaFleur’s respect – saying he is a “great fit” for the position. I think he may actually […]

For a Preview of the 2019 Packers Offense, Watch the Rams Game

Just over two years ago, on January 12, the L.A. Rams installed Sean McVay as the youngest head coach in “modern history.” Why the qualifier? Well, Curly Lambeau, for example, was a head coach at age 21. The precocious McVay opened the 2017 season with a 46-9 thumping of the Colts, and he has proceeded […]

Who Should Gute’s First Target Be This Off-season? Jordy!

2018 was a strange year for Jordy Nelson. Yes, after a super year coming back from ACL surgery in 2016 (97 catches, 1,257 yards, 14 TDs), Jordy was a shadow of his former self in 2017 (53 catches, 487 yards, 6 TDs). I still don’t understand that decline. At any rate, new GM Brian Gutekunst […]

OL Coach James Campen is Headed to the Browns

This will be the longest tenured coach the Packers are losing during this off season – he was also recently promoted to run game coordinator in 2018. Campen has roots with the Packers but he also has connections with Cleveland Browns GM and former Packer  John Dorsey. As a 4th round pick by the Packers in the […]

Relax Fans, Those Who Know LaFleur Best Sing His Praises

  Oh my, have you seen how many of the Packers faithful, egged on by some skeptics in the mainstream media, are on edge over the Matt LaFleur hiring? Is the guy ready? Should we have picked someone with prior head coaching experience? Will Rodgers respect a guy who’s only four year older than himself? […]

Time for the Leader of the Pack to Take a Bow

As Total Packers transitions to new ownership, we ought to take a moment and consider the “legacy” of Monty’s enterprise. Yes, there’s a very definite legacy. Beyond the outrageousness and profaneness, an overwhelming theme emerges. I can only speak to the last three years or so, but the rumble of the site throughout that time […]
