  1. Good move. I would’ve hated to lose him, he’s a great coach who’s highly respected by his players. Special teams was much improved last year although to be fair, there was nowhere to go but up.

  2. Welcome back. Loved the return game once Nixon supplanted Amari, but how come Green Bay can’t block in kick protection?

  3. I wish he had a chance with the raiders. Maybe Carr miiiiiight still be there. I don’t know but with this title change I do expect him to be a head coach soon.

  4. Couldn’t ask for better… Rich has everything it takes and then some. Also a GREAT evaluator of talent. It’s a smart move for LAF to promote him.

  5. MattL is a really terrific guy & a players-type coach, but I believe he’s going have to show he can win without Rodgers and in short order. Organization is really high on Bisaccia… Matt’s seat could get warm really quickly if the season goes completely south. Unlikely Joe Barry even survives half the season if the defense underperforms like last year.

  6. looks like the Packers are doing what is necessary to increase the odds of Rich getting a HC job so they can receive a 3rd compensatory pick

  7. Kinda surprised to see Tom Clements sticking around. Rodgers requested him. Clements is 70. Maybe Tom likes working with Jordan.

  8. Why cant the Raiders do anything right? the past 20-30 years all the worst kind of crap you can imagine. Moving to Vegas was another one. Not keeping this guy as head coach will haunt them for years!
