Knee bend and quick feet are a big deal for big uglies… OL especially.
Well MM was a good coach, no doubt, but 10 years in one place is probably enough, Wolf and Epstein have said the same thing. BB, Parells, Walsh and Lombardi have one common thread and it wasn’t manhood. The reason for all their success at the core is the demand for execution. Murphy, TT and in my view MM didn’t demand it. It will probably surprise you, but to me Mark Murphy is the real problem. He was the one who on a policy level let this get to this point, and yes to some extent I can empathize with both for how Murphy has conducted things.
And as you have said, not only could firing MM not fix this, it is possible it makes it worse. And here’s the key Murphy needs to go back to the big picture, and butt out. An emphasis on Gute and LaFleur controlling strength and conditioning, not Russ Ball need to be established. But yes, 2 years from now we could be looking at a total regime change.
We can like it or not but the next 2 or 3 years will be centered on Rodgers getting rid of the ball more quickly, staying upright, and being the player he is paid too. If that doesn’t happen not much else will matter.
