Serious The search for the next Green Bay Packers head
Author Message
The search for the next Green Bay Packers head #1
coach is still in its infancy but judging by the list of candidates the team has reached out to so far Bart Starr Jersey , one common thread seems to be emerging.A need for discipline.This makes one assume both team president Mark Murphy and general manager Brian Gutekunst feel former coach Mike McCarthy was getting a little too lax and perhaps a little too comfortable with his players. Players were not being held accountable and that is what Murphy and Gutekunst apparently feel needs to change first and foremost.New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels seems to be the perfect candidate if this is the case. He’s stood up to Tom Brady multiple times and they’ve still succeeded together. He doesn’t come without his risks, but having Rodgers on the roster could be something that ultimately makes McDaniels fully commit to finally leaving New England.Others on the list also would install a strong sense of discipline including Patriots linebackers coach Brian Flores who has called himself a disciplinarian and Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak.Regardless of who the Packers hire, it seems like restoring order is top of mind for the team. Gutekunst by all accounts had a phenomenal offseason but that didn’t translate onto the field.Gutekunst proved he can get the right ingredients. Now he just needs to find a talented chef.There’s more on the coaching search plus where the Packers rank as far as appeal in their coach opening in today’s cheese curds.Packers’ confirmed coaching candidates indicate a desire for discipline—PackersNews.comWhile the Packers never had the look of a team completely lacking discipline, players were not being held accountable for their mistakes so that is where Green Bay is focusing on their search it appears.Packers clean out lockers—Packers.comUncertainty hung in the air over Lambeau Field more than any time in the last 13 years Monday as players emptied their lockers. The team will likely look vastly different in 2019, it’s just not clear who will be back and who won’t.Packers gain plenty of company in their coaching search—Wisconsin State JournalThere are now eight openings in the NFL, which is 25% of the league. Green Bay will have to move fairly quickly to get their guy despite the obvious attractiveness of their job.Ranking NFL coaching vacancies: Browns, Packers most alluring—NFL.comOne would assume the Packers would be hands down the most attractive job thanks to the presence of Rodgers, but Baker Mayfield’s stunning debut in Cleveland has propelled the Browns into the top tier as well.Package thief makes off with box of cat poop—UPIThere is no word if a San Diego nightclub owner tried to make the thief eat said cat poop. SEATTLE (AP) — VICIS, the top-rated helmet maker for pros according to an NFL survey, is bringing its youth helmet to market with investment from NFL players Ray Nitschke Color Rush Jersey , including Aaron Rodgers.The company announced Thursday that its ZERO1 YOUTH helmet is now available, capping several years of development and study in the attempt to make a safer youth helmet available for young football players.“We looked at the scientific literature and we studied what is different about young players. Their anatomies, the sort of impacts that they impact on-field. And we’ve designed that helmet specifically for kids,” VICIS CEO Dave Marver said in an interview with The Associated Press. “The helmet, for example, is tuned to lower impact velocity. Its impact performance is extremely good in the front and side locations, which is where the scientific literature suggests they are experiencing the majority of the hits. It’s lighter in weight than other helmets, which reflects that kids their necks are not as well built as adults for example. This is the first helmet of its kind on the market that is truly designed and optimized for kids, whereas the other youth helmets that are out there are the adult helmets with lightweight shells.”VICIS has been working toward getting into the youth market since refining the design of its helmet that is used at the professional, collegiate and high school level. The ZERO1 YOUTH is hitting the market on the same day the company announced a Series B investment of $28.5 million that includes contributions from Rodgers through his company Rx3 Ventures.“We invested in VICIS because its commitment to player safety — specifically at the youth level — is one we wanted to support ,” Rodgers said in a statement. “We look forward to working with VICIS as they continue to develop outstanding technologies for players at all levels.”VICIS is also attempting to regulate the cost in bringing its technology to the youth helmet. Benefiting from increased volumes, this season VICIS reduced the price of its ZERO1 helmet for pros, colleges and high schools, called varsity, to $950. NCAA and high school programs that purchased the ZERO1 in volume qualified for pricing under $800 per helmet.Marver said the youth helmet will cost between $450-495, which he says is about 20 percent higher than current youth helmets on the market.VICIS isn’t alone in the youth development field. Riddell has its InSite Training Tool, which provides such specific data that it is applicable at the youth, high school, college and pro levels. Basically, it tells observers if an out of the ordinary impact happens on the field.Marver said the feedback VICIS has received from the growing number of NFL players using the helmet helped contribute to the development of the youth helmet. Among the investors or advisers for the company are Rodgers Aaron Rodgers Jersey , Russell Wilson, Doug Baldwin, Jerry Rice and Roger Staubach.“The NFL player investment has been very important to us as a company, It’s been highly validating, and that elite players at the top of the game have seen the technology and chosen to invest in us,” Marver said. “It has also I think given the confidence to other investors to also support our efforts to develop new technology in football and other sports. And it’s also led to a higher level of engagement from those NFL players than one would typically get from a garden-variety advisory relationship. These players are keenly interested in the technology, in providing feedback on helmet fit, helmet comfort, helmet performance. So we benefit a lot as a company from having those very close relationships.”
