Jordy Nelson said criticism of Aaron Rodgers ‘doesn’t makes sense’

Friday, February 22nd, 2019

Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson were nothing short of a dynamic duo when the pair both played in Green Bay. Nelson was one of Rodgers' favorite targets throughout his nine seasons with the Packers, and was instrumental in their 2011 Super Bowl win. Yet even though Nelson now plays for the Oakland Raiders, he's not going to sit by and let his former quarterback take criticism from former teammates — more of which surfaced again in recent weeks.

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

Aaron Rodgers may have a whole new coaching staff to work with next season with the Green Bay Packers, but don't expect the offense to change too much under the new regime. According to PackersNews.com, offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said on Monday that the new coaching staff isn't looking to completely tear down the type of playbook that Rodgers has thrived in throughout his run as a starter in Green Bay. “You don't want to necessarily treat it as a start over because he's done so many great things,” Hackett said.

Mike Pettine calls it “easy decision” to stay in Green Bay with Matt LaFleur

Monday, February 18th, 2019

Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine came to Green Bay to be part of Mike McCarthy's coaching staff, but neither McCarthy's departure during the 2018 season nor the hiring of Matt LaFleur to replace him gave Pettine cause to leave the organization. Pettine had LaFleur's brother on his coaching staff with the Browns and said he felt “common ground” with the new head coach despite not working together in the past. The defensive staff has seen some changes with linebackers coach Patrick Graham leaving to become the Dolphins defensive coordinator and defensive passing game coordinator Joe Whitt departing for a job in Cleveland.

Packers offensive coaches plan to hit Aaron Rodgers from “all angles”

Monday, February 18th, 2019

The hope in Green Bay is that quarterback Aaron Rodgers is able to turn in a better 2019 season than he managed in 2018 and there will be three members of the coaching staff working with him on making that happen. Head coach Matt LaFleur, offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett and quarterbacks coach Luke Getsy will all have a role. Getsy worked with the Packers as a quality control coach and wide receivers coach from 2014 to 2017 and LaFleur said he spoke to Rodgers about the hire, but that it wasn't a requirement that the team hired someone who had worked with the quarterback in the past.
