Just a pessimistic view of the coming season: First T.T. fires a winning head coach; second he hires a coach from an organization that has had problems winning for some seasons now; while having failed to provide the needed players for the last coach. The new Head coach is apparently hiring many old buddies while getting rid of some proven assistant coaches (Bieghtol,etc.). Not too concerned with the loss of Bevel but think getting rid of Duffy a major mistake. It's obviuous that T.T., from the beginning wanted to build a team his way. Not convinced he has the ability. Either way! Next season arrives with the loss of a number of free-agents; Longwell among them and the liklihood of no Favre. A team that has no direction and few NFL status players, (49ers?). My guess is that it will take at least four yrs. to see another major winning season and possibly another long term failure per pre-Lombardi yrs. Hopefully I'm wrong on many counts and this will be another banner yr. for the Pack. but, I'm a pessimist!
