    Interesting. I don't think anyone knows if he'll be a good HC or not. He has been getting hype for being a Shanahan/McVay guy and was supposed to turn the Titans offense around but they still weren't very good. You probably can't judge him based on that one situation though and now he goes from Mariota to Rodgers.

    Wasn't even Vrabel's first choice in Tennessee as OC.

    I highly doubt that he can ring in Rodgers narcissism.

    Titans OC doesn't look flashy, but he was previously with the Rams and Falcons before that.

    He was the OC for the Rams under McVay, I think what the Packers need now is an experienced defensive coordinator.

    He was also the QB coach when Matt Ryan won MVP.

    People are being way too hard on him for his year in Tennessee. He had a subpar receiving core and Blaine Gabbert at the end of the season, still managed to get a great season out of Derrick Henry.
    He's supposedly a QB whisperer with his time in Washington, Atlanta, and LA to show for that.

    Both of these things bode well for Aaron Rodgers and Aaron Jones, while the rumour is he's keeping Pettine on which is great news.

    As long as he fires Philbin (OC) and Zook (Special Teams) while retaining Mike Pettine (DC) and Joe Whitt Jr. (CB coach) ill be a happy Packers fan.

    Rescinded my fandomship of any NFL team after the flag controversy. If it wasn't for gambling I probably wouldn't even watch anymore, honestly.

    Yeah but McVay has proved this year he didn't need him.

    You could say that Andy Reid has proved this year he didn't need Matt Nagy & Doug Pederson, yet they are still great coaches.

    I wouldn't judge him too harshly off of the Titans season, Mariota was banged up all year, lost Walker early and basically had no real weapons other than that.

    No way, I wouldn't take the under in any Chiefs game. The only game I thought it would hit was Baltimore but I saw it going either way so I laid off.

    Are they or is it situational? Bears have a great D and a run game with a mobile QB. They have a good formula. I'm still not sold on Philadelphia. They are VERY FORTUNATE to be here. The NFC at the tippy top is solid. I would even throw Seattle in that group. Beyond that I think they are all average at best. The Eagles got a lot of help. The Panthers full on collapsed, Alex Smith broke his leg, Kirk Cousin can't win primetime games. I think if he were a better coach that team would focus on football more than running their mouths off the field. If they were that good they would have won the division. Big Game Kirk deserves a thank you card for saving them from a media snowstorm.

    Interesting hire, a little underwhelming IMO but we'll have to see how it works out.

    McCarthy was hired after directing one of the all time worst offenses ever. Green Bay has done this before.

    I'd struggle to think the Packers did not counsel with Aaron Rodgers on this.
