The Packers finalized the team’s 2016 coaching staff on Wednesday.

The announcement included the hiring of tight ends coach Brian Angelicho and running backs coach Ben Sirmans and two internal promotions. Ejiro Evero was named defensive quality control coach, Luke Getsy was promoted to wide receivers coach and David Raih was promoted to assistant offensive line coach.

Angelicho was tight ends coach with the Browns the last two seasons. Sirmans spent the last four seasons as running backs coach with the Rams.

Getsy, a college quarterback at Pitt and Akron, has been on the Packers staff as offensive quality control coach the last two seasons. Raih was promoted after two seasons as coaching administrator.

    Just great. The Bob Dole of Defense is back for another year of Donut Defense…nothing in the middle.

    Loyalty is great but not when it’s been costing you for years.

    Thorny, the Packers problem is their draft positions the last decade. Picking at the end of the first round is not going to net a team all pro talent every year. The Packers have to get lucky every year picking that far back.

    They never missed the playoffs with Capers as DC. I think the defense is looking promising they have 2 solid young CBs, Jake Ryan can grow into a starter if given the time I beleive, I do wish they would figure out what they want to do with Matthews once and for all. I think with another season under their belt and a good off-season the Packers could have a top 10 Def next season

    So let me say this up front, I am a HUGE Packer fan. Does anyone other than me wonder if TT would still be GM had we not won that Super Bowl? When we have a superstar QB I feel like we are not capitalizing on our chances. Perhaps a FA pick up or two? Maybe some skill position 1st round draft picks? Yes, yes I know we took Haha and Randall last two years, but why not give and elite QB some elite weapons? I have always wondered “what if” we took Dez instead of Bulaga…..character issues aside.

    Dang, I was hoping to see Kevin Greene’s name in there…

    Until they get a new GM, Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson aren’t going back to the Super Bowl. Most overrated GM in professional sports. It’s insane that All-World Aaron Rodgers has only one ring at this point. What a shame.

    Which one of these coaches will be fired next season as McCarthy’s next scapegoat?

    Hope someone tipped off rb coach Ben Sirmans that he’ll need to motivate his star running back with McDonalds coupons.

    As a Packer fan, I have to say that this coaching staff is WAY too over managed. 1 head coach, 2 Associate Head Coaches – neither of whom OC or DC. And then position coaches.

    That said, when it comes to organizational structure, the great Green Bay Packers have earned the benefit of the doubt with their NFL best 13 world championships.

    As opposed to the team 180 miles to the west. Les Steckel, Brad Childress and Mike Tice – OH MY!

    Bottom line… 22 mil under the cap and the easiest schedule in the NFL next season. Go out and get a player or two, Jordy come up healthy, and we could go deep next year.

    The Vikings, in their existence, have had one HOF QB. During his tenure they went to three Super Bowls. Yes! You should expect more out of the current regime. My God!!! You’ve had almost 25 years of HOF QB play, during a QB friendly period, and only have 2 SBs to show for it.

    You saw what the Vikes did with one good year of Bret Favre. The Pack should be doing that every single year. No excuses!!!

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Except the Packers haven’t been picking at the end of the first round for the last decade…

    2006 – 5th pick – AJ Hawk
    2007 – 16th pick – Justin Harrell
    2008 – 30th pick – traded it away
    2009 – 9th pick – BJ Raji
    2010 – 23rd pick – Bryan Bulaga
    2011 – 32nd pick – Derrick Sherrod
    2012 – 28th pick – Nick Perry
    2013 – 26th pick – Datone Jones
    2014 – 21st pick – Ha Ha Clinton Dix
    2015 – 30th pick – Damarius Randle

    Their average pick has been in the middle of the first round – except for the year that Thompson traded it away.

    D efense and D elusion start with the same D.

    D om Capers is abysmal as a DC. Go look at his track record…it’s the same everywhere he goes. Turns the D’s he takes over around and then a dramatic drop off a cliff. Sound familiar?

    Picking last certainly hasn’t stopped Denver or New England from fielding great defenses…Baltimore, too, for that matter.

    The excuses my Packers fan brethren come up with are infinite. It’s sad.

    This D will NEVER be Top 10 with Dom Capers. It was 15 last year and that was with facing the Bears, Vikings and Lions, twice, plus Colin Kaepernick, Alex Smith, Matt Cassel, etc.

    It’s SHAMEFUL the way Ted Thompson continues receiving a free pass. Citing guys like Jake Ryan who was TERRIBLE last season is all the proof you need. AJ Hawk was a millstone around this D’s neck for years as a 5th overall pick but Packer fan would never acknowledge what a bust he was. D elusional.

    The good news is the Packers have the 32nd ranked strength of schedule so maybe this D looks better than it actually is.

    Browns and Rams coaches, I guess the fudge is bringing out the heavy hitters…

    Thank you for keeping Dom Capers employed

    It’s so wonderful to see all that concern out there with poor Aaron and his one Super Bowl ring and MVP.

    Such a caring community!

    you are basing your success on 3 superbowl losses in the era before free agency?

    You vikings fans, anything to put shine on a turd.

    You’ll have plenty of top 10 picks over the next decade….

    You are absolutely correct!

    I mean the Packers are terrible to have made the playoffs more than any other NFC team the last 10 years.

    What it really speaks volumes of is the lack of quality opponents in the NFC north.

    Keep talking about how bad the best team in your division is though….
