The Packers might need to make some changes to the staff
The Green Bay Packers have been outcoached in most games this season. The Packers’ record is 4-7 before their Week 12 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Being third in the NFC North is not where most fans thought the team would be the week of Thanksgiving. Many fans want shake-ups to the coaching staff. One former coach could be a potential replacement for Adam Stenavich as offensive coordinator.
Packers fans have been vocal about wanting defensive coordinator Joe Barry fired from the Packers. The defense has been a problem, and the Packers would be wise to part ways with Barry. However, this year, the offense has been just as much of a problem. The team has run the ball when they shouldn’t and passed it when they should have run. The Packers have been held to ten points or fewer three times in 11 games.
The Packers could bring in a familiar face
The Denver Broncos are expected to be switching their coaching staff around too. The disappointing Broncos are 3-7 this season. Head coach Nathaniel Hackett recently gave up his playcalling duties for the Broncos. That didn’t change much as the Broncos scored just 17 points with quarterback Russell Wilson against the Las Vegas Raiders in a game that went into overtime.
The former Packers offensive coordinator is on the hot seat. Peter King wrote in his Football Morning In America column that he expects Hackett to be fired from the Broncos:
How can a team with a guy who mentored Aaron Rodgers, and a team with a quarterback who’d led his team to the playoffs in eight of his 10 seasons never have scored 24 points in a game all season? Denver’s owners did not sign off on the hiring of Hackett last winter, and didn’t even meet the man till the summer. They’ve watched the franchise with a $47-million-a-year quarterback start 3-7, and get swept by the lowly Raiders. The Walton/Penner group is not married to Hackett, and barring a late-season surge, I’d be surprised if Hackett makes it to year two.
If Hackett is fired from the Broncos, the Packers should immediately try and bring him back to Green Bay. Hackett’s offense was one of the best in the NFL when he was with the Packers. He knows what quarterback Aaron Rodgers needs to be successful with the Packers.
Hackett could get the offense fired up for the 2023 season. The Packers should have more experienced wide receivers ready to go as their rookie trio learns this season. If they get help on the offensive line, a Hackett lead offense could be dangerous again next season.
