Pack­ers des­per­ately need wake-up call

Packer Plus - - Analysis -

Ted Thomp­son reg­u­larly fields one of the youngest teams in the NFL. He clearly fa­vors draft­ing and de­vel­op­ing younger play­ers as­cend­ing to­ward rather than slid­ing from the pin­na­cle of their ca­reers.

Ros­ter turnover is not a bad thing be­cause in the NFL stay­ing the same is fall­ing be­hind. And who can ar­gue with youth­ful en­ergy?

But what about the coach­ing staff? Dur­ing the Packer-Cow­boys game a TV cam­era spot­ted Dom Ca­pers yawn­ing in the booth! If this is his in­ten­sity in the middle of a cru­cial game, it should sur­prise no one to see his de­fense play­ing with a sim­i­lar level of somno- lence. And in­deed game af­ter game, we are wit­ness to op­po­nent re­ceivers run­ning through open gaps in the se­condary.

On the other side of the ball, the plays and play-call­ing have grown stale as our re­ceivers strug­gle to find even the slight­est of open­ings, suc­ceed­ing only be­cause of the bril­liance of a cer­tain No.12.

Mean­while, Mr. Thomp­son seems to have lost the Mi­das touch. As an avid fan it is ex­tremely frus­trat­ing to see the Rodgers’ years wasted.

The staff of this team des­per­ately needs an in­fu­sion of pos­i­tive en­ergy. They need both a wake-up and a shakeup ASAP! Mike Tresp Oshkosh
