Placed this question on the 49er forum

Question
I'm seldom in this forum so this question may have been discussed many times and I'm not aware of it.

What is the consensus of opinion on how the new Packer coach will do?


Reply

Well the talk about him hasn't really begun too much yet, I think it is really too early to tell, immediately at the signing people were pretty ticked off, he ran the worst offense in the league and then got a HC job, that's not usually how things go

Just one mans opinion

Yeah it doesn't help that he had the worst offense in the game last year but I don't think its fair to judge him off that. First they were starting two rookies on the O-line with some other average at best players. Secondly, they had little to no running game. Finally they used 4 different QBs. (Rattay-gave up on him and traded him, Dorsey-gutsy but a third stringer at best, Pickett-shouldn't be in the league, and Smith who was a rook trying to transition from a shotgun/spread offense in college to a west coast). Under those circumstances, I think it would be tough to impossible for anybody to make that look good.

I think the legacy of a head coach begins with who they surround themselves with and in this aspect I think he has done pretty well. Sherman killed himself with his loyalty to Rossley.

I think thats true. MM needs to prove himself and he is bringing in some of his old connections that also need to prove themselves. Hopefully he builds this staff as a group that works together with something to prove in this league.

There is always hope. Look what Walter Matthau did with those kids. He really taught them how to play the game

Well I guess if we get off to a real slow start, we could call on Walter to come help....or is he dead?
