Packers ask permission to interview Gus Bradley

As they did when they were looking for a General Manager, the Packers aren’t afraid to check on some high-profile external candidates.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Packers have requested permission to interview Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, who has also drawn interest from the Seahawks.

Bradley’s contract has expired so permission is largely a moot point.

The Packers have talked to some of their remaining assistants after Dom Capers was fired, but they’ve also shown interest in Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio and others.

Before his failed stint as Jaguars head coach, Bradley was a well-regarded coordinator based on his time with the Seahawks.

The Chargers would like to keep him, but having options helps when it’s time to negotiate.

    Decline their request – everyone else is.

    Which means they understand full well that the position is attractive and if they grant permission they may lose their guy. But you go ahead and purple it up however you need to. That’s always fun to watch.

    Would love to see GB run Seattle’s defense.

    … ANY scheme would be an improvement over the antiquated trash they’ve been running!

    That’s funny, like GB has the personnel to run Seattle’s defense. Even if they ran it, they wouldn’t be successful at it. Gotta love the cheese’s optimism though.

    So what do you have to say about your own homegrown product Reggie McKenzie flat out refusing to interview with you? So you keep on cheesing it up however you want to. Facts are, nobody wants any part of that cesspool.

    They don’t have the personnel right now, no, and I didn’t say they did.

    But the personnel is not as bad as many would like to believe.

    Daniels and Clinton-Dix are frontline players. Matthews could regain his old form in a competent scheme. Blake Martinez was a stud this year. They have good pieces to mold in Kenny Clark, Dean Lowry, Jake Ryan, Josh Jones, and Kevin King.

    The defense COULD pop with the right coordinator. I don’t expect that to happen in 2018 though. Too much carnage from the Capers-era to overcome.

    Based on that logic – green bays coaches and front office find working for the Browns more attractive than working for the Packers.

    Folks, let that sink in….and laugh out loud.

  6. Well one things for certain at least for once it will be an interesting off-season for the Pack and their fans instead of the crickets we’ve gotten accustomed to under TT!

  7. Bradley will get a well deserved raise. I hope he ends up with the Pack because they play Seattle in Seattle next season. If nothing else, he can provide information on what Seattle’s defenses like to do against Rodgers and Green Bay wide receivers.

    Uh, hate to break it to you, but Seattle does the same thing to everyone’s wide receivers. They don’t change. Their scheme is simple and effective, it is not exotic, it is no secret what they do week in and week out.

    I thought he wanted to be part of the Seahawks dynasty? *Giggle*

    Lately it has not worked. LOL. Seattle is 4-5 in its last 9 games and they were middle of the pack in points allowed per game last season. Cannot blame Blair Walsh for all 5 of those defeats. That is for sure. He may be coming back in 2018, if no other team will offer him a contract.

    I said “Good”. Have you seen Reggie Mckenzie’s record? He was a heckuva player though.

    Everyone is already aware of the holding and illegal contact Seattle gets away with.
