This from the Nationalfootballpost.com (via Greg Bedard).
I think it was important to do this quickly. Many teams are interviewing potential coaches and coordinators and there was a risk that by waiting the Packers could have lost potential coordinators just by being too late to the game.
I don’t think the Packers’ scheme was fatally flawed. Remember, the Packers finished 11th in total defense last year. But I do think it’s worth considering a switch to a 3-4 (given that many of the league’s top defenses are 3-4). Greg Bedard mentions Mike Nolan — he’d be great.
More thoughts later.
