Mortensen = ESPN is now mongering the rumor versus no longer a rumor.

I really hope all the rumors are true, because Crennel would be a great hire.

Capers is not fielding a good defense in GB and will probably get canned soon. Packer fans hate his schemes now.

Nothing's written in stone, but if you put any credence whatsoever in McCarthy's comments since the loss to the Niners, I'd say he's probably not being fired soon.

We will see but the last couple of seasons their pass defense has been miserable (even the 15-1 season) and the last two 9'ers playoff losses aren't going over very well with GB fans.

Going by DVOA their defense was worse than the Cowboys, Texans, and Jaguars (but slightly better than SD). Last year was the same with them finishing up 31st in defensive DVOA. Capers may not be fired but he really should be, that offense with Rodgers and those WR's is dangerous but that defense puts pressure on them to score a lot of points.

We utilized processor intensive algorithms to capture and magnify a portion of that... document... in Crennel's hand and came up with this snippet:

My comment has nothing to do with the quality of his defense, and everything to do with what's been said and done (and not done) since they were knocked out of the playoffs.

I think based on what we're going to ask him to do the only Kevin Bacon that makes any sense is "Capt. Jack Ross" Kevin Bacon from A Few Good Men.

But we want to avoid "Thank you! May I have another!" Kevin Bacon from Animal House. We just went through that with the last regime.
