Those moves bolster a roster that fell short last year and give new head coach Matt LaFleur a chance to jumpstart his tenure in Green Bay.Still, those expenditures come with a cost beyond the dollar amount, one the Packers will eventually have to pay.Packers’ spending spree in 2019 will mean touch decisions in 2020 | Packers WireThe Packers’ decision to limit the cap hit for their four big free agent additions allows for flexibility in case they decide to make another significant addition or move later this year. At the same time, the team will have to pay significantly more for those players in 2020, limiting how the front office can maneuver and, perhaps most importantly, whom it can retain. Green Bay has a more robust free-agent class hitting the market next offseason, a list including Bryan Bulaga, Mike Daniels, and Blake Martinez.Gutekunst made right call by moving on from two Packers greats | 247 SportsMany fans have a hard time saying goodbye to longtime contributors like Clay Matthews and Randall Cobb. However Davon House Jersey White , successful front offices know when the sever ties with aging players. The Packers have already gone about replacing Matthews’ role in the defense and could do the same with Cobb’s in the upcoming NFL draft.Packers News: Cornerback has become a need entering draft | Lombardi AveWhile not an aging stalwart like Matthews or Cobb, cornerback Bashaud Breeland made a handful of big plays for the Packers defense down the stretch of 2018 and could have done so again had the team retained him. Instead, Breeland signed a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, leaving Green Bay to add talent in the later stages of free agency or the draft.

McCarthy doesn’t seem to understand how and why his coaching philosophy stopped working."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareShareMike McCarthy’s definition of complacency seems to differ from the Packers’Steven Bisig-USA TODAY SportsThis week, ESPN’s Rob Demovsky conducted the first in-depth interview with former Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy since the team fired him, and it provides a fascinating window into his philosophy as a coach (and in life). It also illustrates how complacency and accountability can mean different things to different people. McCarthy comes across as an honorable man who believes in doing things a certain way. He objects strongly to the process of his own firing because of how it happened more than the fact that it did happen — because when he let people go, he would go about it in a certain way. That way generally involved treating players as family Kyler Fackrell Jersey White , being upfront and respectable, and yes, when they did mess up, holding them accountable. It is also pretty clear that McCarthy’s code and routine were the cause of some disconnect between McCarthy and the front office:McCarthy took offense to charges of complacency and lack of accountability, and from his perspective I can see why. The internal structure and relationships he built within his team did seem to be solid, and fostered an air of mutual respect. McCarthy ran a close-knit, tight ship. The issue is that the Packers are not a family. The Packers are a cold, heartless business focused on results. I found this quote particularly intriguing:McCarthy famously focused on execution on the football field. His entire coaching strategy was based on creating routine and a process around executing his plays as well as they could be executed. While there is nothing wrong with executing at a high level, the current NFL requires that coaches not just accept change, but embrace it. Criticisms of McCarthy focused on his lack of innovation. The Packers’ offense grew stale, and while the league reacted to an ever-changing landscape, he stayed the same. That lack of innovation is its own form of complacency , and the lack of insight in this interview is revealing. No one accused McCarthy of a poor work ethic or lack of discipline, and the way he takes offense is interesting because he doesn’t seem to understand why his team struggled or why he was fired. McCarthy was fired because his scheme failed to stay ahead of the curve strategically, and executing on a poor strategy doesn’t win you anything.The flavor of the day in the NFL is the innovative young mind, but that’s a fairly superficial oversimplification. Andy Reid is still getting it done, as is Bill Belichick, and neither are exactly babies. The biggest successes in the league do a different kind of homework than McCarthy, and until he realizes that, he won’t be effective in his next role either.
