Peter King nugget re Pack operations

by

Took this from Peter King’s MMQB over at cnnsi.com:

Weirdest thing I heard over the weekend: Pack gave their coaches the weekend off. They’ll be in today, and this week, to work on the free agents. I’m told that has meaning — that the Packers want to send the message that free agency spending these days is profligate, and they’ll get in when the Dan Snyders get out.

Interesting, but not shocking. While I too think the initial wave of free agent pick-ups is often characterized by ridiculous contracts players don’t really deserve, giving the coaches the weekend off is going one step too far in the other direction. In fact, Peter King notes that the Pack had scheduled a meeting with Canty for today – but I read somewhere else that it wasn’t scheduled sooner because TT wanted Canty to meet the Packers’ coaching staff (which we now know was not at work over the weekend). Perhaps if TT hadn’t given the coaches the weekend off, the Pack might have Chris Canty on board.

    […] Agree with Andy on this item is from Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback, and I didn’t want to escape the week without commenting on it. It’s in regards to what King wrote about the Packers giving the coaches the opening weekend of free agency off, and more importantly, why: Weirdest thing I heard over the weekend: Pack gave their coaches the weekend off.

    No one is asking TT to go crazy and hand out $100 million contracts. What most fans want to see is a focused, sincere effort to improve the team. All we, the fans, ever get is conveluted excuses for why the Packers miss key players. Show the fans you are actually working on a plan and we would be a lot happier. Sitting in your ivory tower mandating without comment to your underlings is unacceptable. Don’t forget, GB is a publicly owned team with non-profit status. Because of that the public has a right to more information than the typical NFL franchise.

    As far as I’m concerned, TT makes far more mistakes than good decisions. This season should be the final grade for TT. Put up or get out of the business.
