Packers Interview Jim Caldwell and Chuck Pagano as Possible Next Head Coaches

The painful Packers 2018 season will end on Sunday, and all eyes will turn on who is going to be the next head coach of the team.

Michael Lombardi of The Athletic reports that one name that seems to be gaining steam is that of former Colts and Lions head coach Jim Caldwell, as he’s already talked to the team.

Caldwell spent three years (2009-2011) with the Indianpolis Colts (26-22 record) and then four years (2014-2017) with Detroit (36-28 record).

Ian Rapoport adds the Packers have already spoken as well as former Colts coach Chuck Pagano.

Following Loss to Cardinals; Packers Fire Coach Mike McCarthy

A lost season for the Packers has just taken another surprising twist, as following Sunday’s miserable three-point home loss to the Arizona Cardinals, the team has relieved coach Mike McCarthy of his duties as head coach.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that McCarthy was not expecting the move, and that for now, Joe Philbin will take over as interim coach for the rest of 2018.

“The 2018 season has not lived up to the expectations and standards of the Green Bay Packers. As a result, I made the difficult decision to relieve Mike McCarthy of his role as head coach, effective immediately,” Packers president Mark Murphy said in a statement.

“Mike has been a terrific head coach and leader of the Packers for 13 seasons, during which time we experienced a great deal of success on and off the field. We want to thank Mike, his wife, Jessica, and the rest of the McCarthy family for all that they have done for the Packers and the Green Bay and Wisconsin communities. We will immediately begin the process of selecting the next head coach of the Green Bay Packers.”

The Packers after the loss to the Cardinals sit at 4-7-1, and they are basically finished as far as looking for a possible playoff spot in the NFC.

Steelers Star RB Le’Veon Bell to the Packers? One Can Dream About it Happening

Pittsburgh Steelers star Running Back Le’Veon Bell isn’t going to play this season after deciding to sit out when he and the team that drafted him could not make a deal.

With a year of rest underneath his belt, Bell won’t be in black and gold next season, but how about playing in Green Bay? NCAA football championship best betting lines would probably guess that Bell wouldn’t be back in college next season, but it’s almost a given he won’t be back in the steel city.

Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report says that the dynamic back will probably be in New York next season, giving the Jets running back position the biggest upgrade it could possibly get (unless maybe they dealt for Rams running back Todd Gurley).

But, he also talks about some other teams in the mix for Bell’s services, and one of them could be the Packers, where he would give a HUGE upgrade to the offense.

Here’s the portion of the story about the Packers and Bell:

One NFC South coaching source thought Bell would be “the perfect match with Aaron Jones,” in Green Bay. “It would be like [Alvin] Kamara and [Mark] Ingram in New Orleans.” He added that such a move would extend the career of Aaron Rodgers “by light-years.”

So while it sounds like a long shot, how great would the Pack offense be with Bell running the football wearing green next season?

Packers Late Letdown a Script the Team Knows All Too Well; Now with Six Games Left It’s Do or Die

The Green Bay Packers inability to finish games once again reared its ugly head on Thursday night, and now this season which at one point had quite a bit of promise is on the brink, a the teams latest 27-24 loss to the Seattle Seahawks has them sitting at 4-5-1 overall.

If you PlayMGM review or any other sports betting site, the Packers were one of the favorites before the season to win the NFC, and along with the Minnesota Vikings were the favorites to win the NFC North.

They wake up today not only a game under .500, but also depending on how the Vikings and Chicago Bears Sunday night prime time showdown ends up, they could wind up two and a half games out of first with just six games left.

Not a position the team nor the Packers fans felt they would be in with a month and a half left in 2016.

“We just gotta finish games,” Packers defensive tackle Kenny Clark said. “We had a thousand times to put that game away. We got to put that game away. I don’t know. It’s frustrating. It’s tough.”

Thursday the team had it all going their way early, they led 14-3 with 3:10 left in the first quarter, and they were doing exactly what they had to do in order to walk out of a very tough stadium with a win.

Then, like letting the air out of a balloon, it was all over. They watched as Seattle QB Russell Wilson marched down the field over and over again, making it a 17-14 Seahawks led with 3:44 left in the half.

The Packers still had a lead late, but just like they did when they had an 11-point lead, they watched as Wilson led Seattle on a late drive, 7 plays, 75 yards, in 3:15, scoring the game-winning points and once again sending the Packers home with a huge ‘L’ in a game they should have won.

“Unfortunately, I mean that’s kind of reared its ugly head for the entirety of the year,” linebacker Clay Matthews said.

“We’ve had a number of teams — good teams — on the ropes, and unfortunately just giving up too many big plays. Haven’t been able to make the big plays in crunch time to seal the victory. So it’s difficult. Obviously a difficult point with where we’re at in the season. It’s going to be real uphill sledding to have a chance at the playoffs, but all we can do is just get back to work.

“We were that close, but unfortunately in this business, close doesn’t count. We have to get the wins, and we’ve got to start in Minnesota, which is going to be another tough one.”

Close is not going to get it done in the league, and this is too good and too talented of a team, and they should know better by now how to finish games.

They had the momentum, but as left tackle David Bakhtiari put it, they allowed that momentum to get away, and they were helpless to do anything about it.

“We have to hit that mark at the end of the day,” Bakhtiari said. “Like I’ve said week in and week out, the game’s all about momentum. There’s going to be a lot of momentum shifts and you’ve got to be able to ride your wave and when you’re hitting you’ve got to be able to capitalize on it.

“Then it’s situational ball — we’ve got to be able to capitalize when we have situations, and every single time we end up in this little lull, we have not made the most of that situation. Situations are going the other way, and that’s what’s tough. We’ve got to be able to correct it, fix it and move on.”

The Packers final six games looks like this – at Vikings, Cardinals Falcons, at Bears, at Jets, Lions.

If this team is gong to make a run, they are going to have to win likely five if not all six of those games.

Concerned? If you’re a Packers player or fan – you should be.

“Concerned? Maybe a little bit. I’m not going to lie to you. Maybe a little bit. But am I optimistic? I’m very optimistic that we can still get the job done. It’s not going to be easy as you all know but I’m optimistic that we can get the job done,” defensive back Tramon Williams said.

Here’s hoping he’s right.

Packers Activate WR Trevor Davis From Reserve/Injured List

The Packers have added what they hope will be another weapon to their offense, as they have activated WR Trevor Davis from reserve/injured list.

Davis was placed on insured reserve Sept. 11 with a hamstring injury.

Davis was one of only three players in the league (Pharoh Cooper and Andre Roberts) to rank in the top 10 in the NFL in both punt-return average (No. 2, 12.2 yards) and kickoff-return average (No. 9, 22.7 yards) from 2016-17.

Davis is the first player the Packers have activated from IR this year. The Packers can activate one more player this season.
