Any time there's comments that come out of our . Jersey
A chapter in the illustrious history of the Green Bay Packers was turned this week with the hiring of Matt LaFleur as the team’s 15th head coach.With the handshakes and introductions now behind him Cheap JK Scott Jersey , LaFleur can focus on his first task and it’s a big one: building a staff.The first reported of an expected many departures were the decisions to not retain special teams coordinator Ron Zook or wide receivers coach David Raih.Those are the first two of what is expected to be a sizable purge of the coaching staff, especially on the offensive side of the ball. While not official,there is a strong possibility Mike Pettine will be kept on as defensive coordinator though what changes on his staff will occur remains to be seen.It’s going to be an interesting couple of weeks in Green Bay as LaFleur builds his staff and that should give fans an idea of what the team could look like as they embark on this new era of Packers football.There’s more on LaFleur beginning to build the coaching staff plus why the Packers still feel good about their top two cornerbacks in today’s cheese curds.Ron Zook pays the price for Packers’ poor special teams play—PackersNews.comThe writing was on the wall all season for Zook as the penalties and miscues piled up and it was stunning to see Mike McCarthy get fired before Zook. Now with LaFleur in charge, he wasted no time sending Zook packing.Matt LaFleur is no stranger to MVP quarterbacks—Packers.comThe LaFleur-Aaron Rodgers relationship will he watched closely all season in 2019 and LaFleur has experience in helping talented quarterbacks reach peak efficiency.Packers players wanted more accountability, less complacency in new coach—Packers WireA lack of accountability and complacency will doom any team and the coaching staff will pay the price, as was the case in Green Bay. The Packers took the players’ feelings into account as they set out to find the next head coach.Injuries prevented Packers from seeing Alexander-King combination—ESPNKing battled injuries for the second consecutive season and Alexander flashed promise but also was banged up as the year went on. This could be a great combination but they have to stay healthy.Truck overturns, dumps human waste on NB I-75 near Michigan-Ohio border—Detroit Free Press“How was your drive home?” “It was crappy. I got kind of pee’d off.” In dealing Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Ty Montgomery, the Green Bay Packers traded away two players who spoke in varying degrees in recent weeks about their respective futures with the team.What happens on the field always comes first, general manager Brian Gutekunst said Wednesday, though other factors aren't ignored either."So I think you take everything into consideration when you make these kinds of decisions," Gutekunst said before practice. "But performance comes first. That's always kind of the major factor in these decisions."But everything's taken into account Cheap Randall Cobb Jersey ," he added. "It's never usually just one thing."Clinton-Dix, a starting safety, went to the Washington Redskins in exchange for a 2019 fourth-round pick. Playing under the fifth-year option of his rookie contract, Clinton-Dix is eligible for free agency this offseason.Montgomery, a fourth-year running back, was traded to the Baltimore Ravens for a seventh-round pick in 2020. He moves on two days after fumbling a kickoff return with about two minutes left in a 29-27 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday after being told by coaches to take a touchback if the kick went into the end zone. The turnover cost the Packers a chance to drive for a potential winning score.Montgomery seemed uncertain about his future on Monday. He lost snaps in the Rams game after Aaron Jones was elevated to starter."I don't fully understand what my role is right now, what I'm supposed to be doing, how I'm supposed to help this team," Montgomery said Monday.Montgomery said that he made a "split-second decision" in taking the ball out on the kick return because he did not want to take a chance of putting the game in the hands of officials. He also spoke Monday about criticism from an anonymous player that came up in an NFL story , adding that he wanted that player to talk to him.Now what had been a three-man backfield is down to Jones and Jamaal Williams. Jones is averaging 6.2 yards a carry."It's not a personal slight or trying to create an angle here of negativity," coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday. "This is part of the business but Cheap Kevin King Jersey , more importantly, when opportunities arise, we're more focused on the culture and the people in that culture taking advantage of this opportunity."McCarthy thanked Montgomery and Clinton-Dix for their contributions and wished them the best. He said that they represented the Packers "very well" during their tenures.Clinton-Dix led the Packers with three interceptions, giving him 14 over 71 regular-season games in Green Bay, including 65 starts. Still, the safety position was mired by inconsistent play.Clinton-Dix also talked about his future in an interview on Oct. 10 with the Wisconsin State-Journal ."Right now, I'm playing each and every game like it's my last. I don't think I'm going to be here next year," Clinton-Dix said then.Gutekunst said that while he was aware of what players were saying, that "it's not as concerning, to me it's more about their play and their performance and things like that. Any time there's comments that come out of our locker room, I pay attention to it."The moves didn't signify the Packers were already looking ahead to next year http://www.packerscheapstore.com/nick-pe...rsey-cheap , he added. At 3-3-1, the Packers are still firmly in the muddled NFC North race with a tough game at New England on Sunday night."I don't necessarily think there's a message it sends to the locker room," Gutekunst said. "I think the decisions that we make are always in the best interest of our team, not only in the short term but the long term, as well."But I think our locker room knows where we're headed," he added. "I think we're humming at the right time and I think there (are) a lot of positive things going forward."Receiver Davante Adams said the deals shouldn't be taken personally in the locker room."It's just a part of the game," Adams said. "It's going to be a lot of different factors that lead into people coming and going for many years to come. I wouldn't take it as a warning for anybody or anything like that."NOTES: RB Tra Carson was added to the active roster from the practice squad, while RB Lavon Coleman was added to the practice squad. Carson was signed to the practice squad on Oct. 9 after being waived/injured by the Bengals in Week 2. The second-year player was signed by the Bengals as undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M in 2016.s://apnews/NFL and s://AP_NFL
