Perhaps his personality is a good fit with Rodgers, and that might be one of the most important things of all. If they are on the same page they'll always have a chance.

It seems like he'll retain Pettine as DC. The D needs to improve next season, so it looks like the playing personnel might see some turnover instead.
maybe a bit hard to judge the OC when your starting QB Mariota was limited a times during the season with his strange arm injury but the Titans offence was hardly spectacular when he was playing but so much of the success will be about how coachable Rodgers is with a new young HC.

its not like Rodgers and the offence was the problem for the Packers in the last few seasons,it was more injuries and front office moves.

I struggle to find what Kingsbury & LaFleur have accomplished aside from either being young, from a certain coaching tree or been involved in developing certain players (who were particularly gifted in the first place)

Smacks of desperation to find a "McVay"

He turned down interviews this off season - which for me shows he’s only interested in the right opening (of which no doubt he’d have liked Green Bay)

He’s an OC for one of the best offences in the league, being paid as a top 5 HC - he’s got a pretty cushty job. Will take the right opportunity for him to leave

With hindsight he must regret not taking the Colts job. Did the Browns show no interest as I would imagine McDaniels would definitely want a team with a good QB after the fiasco in Denver.

The Browns have hired Freddie Kitchens as HC and fired DC Gregg Williams.

Denver have hired Chicago DC Vic Fangio as their new HC.

I love with Kingsbury that they're bringing the Air Raid to the NFL, for the one quarterback from the 2018 class who ran a mostly old-school pro-style offense when he was in college. Cracking stuff.

McDaniels said on a conference call this week he’s had no contact with the Browns, and there’s been no reported interview in the media either. He turned down an interview with the Bengals for sure.
