    I hope they go with a college guy or assistant rather than a former STC who proved to be bad at it.

    True, and I think there could also have been a domino effect. There's an overall pecking order for the coaches, and if what he wanted would have gotten him into the upper strata, then the guys above him would have wanted more, also.

    Come on man.... “the only conclusion “ Even if you end up being right ... that statement is just ridiculous.

    We can only speculate as to how it all went down, but the bottom line is that the Packers didn't get the consensus top candidate and that's a bummer because I think ST is one area that has quietly had a big impact on the Packers' slide into mediocrity.

    They were 28th in starting field position both offensively and defensively. So only four teams had worse starting field position they did, and only 4 teams allowed better starting field position to opponents.

    That's punting, coverage, blocking, tackling, returning... they sucked at all of it.

    Five teams were top 10 in both offensive and defensive field position, and they all made the playoffs (HOU, KC, NO, LAR, IND).

    While special teams definitely contribute to it both offense and defense have a larger impact on those mumbers though.

    I'm sure pro football talk didn't report that money was the reason for Rizzi not taking the job. In fact they likely heard that from rizzis representation. So, while maybe it wasn't the only reason I'm willing to bet it was the main reason

    We met Rizzi's offer. It wasn't money.

    Nice....Butkus is an OL coach at Illinois and Dick Butkus's nephew.


    Do you work at one of the top hotels in Green Bay Frozen? Seeing these guys register as they come to Green Bay? :coffee:

    I'd like Chip Morton, who the Bengals just let go.
