“If you can’t beat them Youth Jamaal Williams Jersey , join them.”That seems to be the approach the Green Bay Packers took when selecting Matt LaFleur to be the team’s next head coach.A year ago Green Bay’s arch rival Chicago Bears hired Matt Nagy off of Andy Reid’s staff in Kansas City despite limited experience in calling plays and paired him with respected defensive coordinator Vic Fangio.The results? A 12-4 record and a curb stomping of the NFC North. The Packers are obviously hoping for similar success with LaFleur in 2019. He’ll have more talent on offense than Nagy did and by retaining defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, whose defense did show promise this season before a tsunami of injuries finally took its toll, LaFleur can focus on fixing the offense and getting quarterback Aaron Rodgers back to elite level.Pettine clearly has the respect of his players and can command the defensive meeting room. If there were any doubt about that, team president Mark Murphy and general manager Brian Gutekunst would not have been as keen on keeping him around.There is of course risk with this. Mimicking the path of a first year head coach whose team flamed out in the wild card round isn’t idea, but given the worst-to-first turnaround the Bears experienced clearly the Packers felt good about their chances. The difference of course being they picked a candidate from the Shanahan tree versus the Reid tree when Chicago picked Nagy.Nobody knows for certain how well this will work out for Green Bay, but we’ll get our first look at LaFleur in green and gold today at 3 p.m. central time at his introductory press conference.Kept it here at APC for love coverage of LaFleur’s debut as Packers head coach.There’s plenty more on LaFleur and what challenges he faces in today’s cheese curds.Packers following Bears’ formula pairing rookie coach with respected defensive coordinator—PackersNews.comThere will be plenty of fan angst about following the road the Bears took, but you can’t argue with the results. The Packers/Bears rivalry is about to get a lot more fun.Five things to know about Matt LaFleur—Packers.comGet to know your new head coach with this quick breakdown of LaFleur’s experience and get excited about what he can bring to Green Bay.Here’s what Packers’ pending head coach hire of Matt LaFleur means for NFL coaching cycle and Aaron Rodgers—Yahoo! SportsChallenging Rodgers while not trying to usurp authority from the personnel department likely was big draw of LaFleur’s to the Packers given Josh McDaniels’ and Adam Gase’s previous head coaching stints.New Packers coach Matt LaFleur must get Aaron Rodgers to buy into his program—Wisconsin State JournalThe above is the biggest question facing this hire and we won’t know the results until several months from now. That said, the excuses are gone for Rodgers. He now has a young, aggressive GM and a young Youth Muhammad Wilkerson Jersey , innovative head coach. It’s now time for him to earn his contract.Ex-Packers coach Mike McCarthy is reportedly only interested in one open coaching job—CBS SportsLooks like it’s New York or nothing for the former Packers coach. Should McCarthy not land the Jets job, he likely will take the year off and look for a job in 2020. Over the next two weeks, Acme Packing Company will break down each position group on the Green Bay Packers and provide insight into how they performed during the 2018 season. Today, we examine the inside linebackers.The Green Bay Packers never received the opportunity to see their full linebacking corps play in defensive coordinator Mike Pettine’s scheme. Veteran Jake Ryan suffered a torn ACL -- the second such injury since 2013 -- during the first week of training camp. The ruptured ligament ended his season and forced the team into a heavier linebacker rotation throughout the season.With Ryan’s rookie contract expiring, the Packers have to make a decision on whether to bring back the dependable-if-unspectacular linebacker or allow him to depart, creating opportunities for younger players.Jake RyanNFL experience: Four yearsFree-agent status: UnrestrictedExpiring contract: Four-year, $3.9 million ($456,676 guaranteed)2018 stats: None (injured)Ryan appeared in many games for the Packers over his four-year career, but he never developed into a centerpiece of the defense. Ryan’s run defense made him a useful player in Dom Capers scheme , though opposing offenses exploited his weaknesses in pass coverage when possible. By 2017, Blake Martinez had surpassed Ryan as the team’s featured off-ball linebacker. That likely would have continued under Pettine who took over as defensive coordinator last offseason.Because of Pettine’ creativity, a larger linebacker like Ryan could serve the team well should he re-sign. The Packers rotated linebackers throughout 2018, using the run-focused Antonio Morrison and box safeties in various sub packages to attack the offense. Ryan could also offer valuable depth should something happen to Martinez, who wears the radio helmet on game days.At the same time, the Packers didn’t trade up to select Burks in the third round to let him ride the bench. A preseason shoulder injury and inexperience hampered him throughout 2018, but linebackers often take the leap during their sophomore campaigns. Clearing a path for Burks and Green Bay’s other young defenders might make more football and financial sense than bringing back Ryan.
