Do the Packers need a GM?
This question is to Packer President, Mark Murphy, and the Board of Directors: Does our Packer coach Mike McCarthy need a GM to procure and pay proper players to have a consisting winning program like Vince Lombardi, whose top condition for taking the head coach of the Packers in 1959 was that he be given total control in selecting and paying the players he wanted and needed?
Contrary to that, coach Mike can only deal with the hand given him. Based on the prior, it makes a lot of sense that the GM position be subordinated and assistive to the head coach or even be done away as such. My preference is for the clause preceding. This situation is congruent with the phenomenally successful winning Patriots too, where Belichick is head coach and has a supporting cast to help him with the paper work, scouting, and finances. Thus, our Packer GM is an encumbrance to our team organization and operation.
Our D-coach needs at least one premier Dtackle, which, as of now, Capers won’t have. So, I urge GM Ted to somehow find and get one while the opportunity is still at hand. Otherwise, on with Thompson’s show and another Super Bowl bust.
For the Big G! The best to all Packer Backers.
