Less meddling ownership.

Historically the coaching longevity has been favorable but recently it has not. Indianapolis probably has a slight edge on career longevity.


Pagano got, what, 5 years? The last 2 Bears coaches got 3 years each? That's barely a rebuild cycle.

Pagano and Grigson's extensions aren't evidence of stability. They both should have been fired.

Sounds like everyone is bitter about the situation. That said, GB set themselves up in a no-win situation, they would have lost either Wolf or Gutekunst.


The Packers offered Wolf "a prominent role'' in the organization, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, but the GM snub did not sit well with Ron Wolf, who ran the Packers from 1991-2001.

"At least he had the opportunity to interview for it," the elder Wolf told ESPN Sunday night. "Obviously the people up there don't think he's worthy or they would've hired him. End of discussion."

Gutekunst can block Wolf, who's still under contract with the Packers, from interviewing for any other NFL job except for GM, but it doesn't sound as if he'll do so.

"I surely want him to be part of this," Gutekunst said Monday during his press conference. "I think the world of Eliot Wolf, not only as a scout, but he's very close to me as a friend. He obviously has other opportunities if he wants them. That's kind of between me and Eliot, but I'm very hopeful that he'll be here."

After the press conference, Gutekunst told ESPN, "I also know he has other opportunities, and I wouldn't hold him back from that because I care about him. But if he was here, I'd like to get him more involved in the college side of stuff and have a broader approach to what he's been doing."


Sounds like Elliot Wolf will move on, which I don't blame him. They promoted Wolf 2 years ago from "Director of Player Personnel" to "Director of Football Operations". Now they just leapfrogged him and promoted the guy that replaced Wolf as Director of Player Personnel.


Sounds like Wolf may join the Browns. :-k

Dorsey is scheduled to interview Green Bay Packers director of football operations Eliot Wolf on Tuesday for a role in the player personnel department, a league source said Monday night. Wolf interviewed for the Packers’ GM job, but it went to Brian Gutekunst, whom the franchise hired Sunday as Ted Thompson’s replacement.

I just realized Jason Garrett is the 7th longest tenured coach in the NFL....


Other than Marvin Lewis, all of the other tenured coaches played in a Super Bowl since Garrett was hired.

jnadke is calling his shot for a Bengals/Cowboys Super Bowl next year. Ballsy.

Wolf might use them to get some more money.


But I think he goes to the Browns. Dorsey may lure him by promising to let him get more involved with The Draft. With all those draft picks and a team that's already on the upswing (1 more win than last year!) he likely views that as the best path to the GM position.

Do what no one else has been able to do: Rebuild the Browns.



It may be an impossible task but it's probably better than being buried in whatever power struggle is bound to come up between John Gruden and Reggie McKenzie.
