    silverstein: "In two games against Ryan-Pettine defenses (Baltimore and NYJ), QB Aaron Rodgers has completed 23 of 49 passes for 235 yards and an interception (52.7 rating). He was sacked 5 times."

    To be fair, the most recent of those games was 2010 with the Jets, and they had a GREAT D that year. Great secondary personnel. Can’t put too much stock in those numbers.

    here's what walterfootball.com has to say about the packers' offseason moves:


    [​IMG] Packers hire OC Joe Philbin, DC Mike Pettine: A+ and A Grade

    These are a pair of terrific hires. Aaron Rodgers and Joe Philbin have a great professional relationship, as Philbin used to coach Rodgers in his early playing days, including the year in which the Packers won the Super Bowl. Philbin did poorly as Miami's head coach, but some guys are just meant to be coordinators, and Philbin is one of them. Reuniting Rodgers and Philbin seems like a tremendous move that will pay off.

    Pettine, meanwhile, is also a failed head coach, though to be fair, everyone fails with the Browns. More importantly, Pettine has been a great defensive coordinator over the years. In five seasons calling the defensive plays for the Jets and Bills, here's how his stop units have finished in yards allowed: 1, 3, 5, 8 and 10. I'd say that's pretty good! Pettine is a huge upgrade over Dom Capers, though he has his work cut out for him, given Green Bay's defensive personnel.

    I see walterfootball has decided to mirror what some of us have been saying for years. "Don't judge the value of a coach by their failure as a head coach."

    Many coaches are so into the nuts and bolts of coaching that they aren't good managers of the game itself. Philbin is a prime example. Where he excels is in his own little world of Xs & Os. I've said it repeatedly. He was the offense in GB, for a period of time. It was his work with Rodgers, and the rest of the offensive staff, that helped make the Packers the offensive juggernaut they were. When he left, so did a lot of the creativeness the Packers need. His being invited back spells that out in no uncertain terms.

    There's only one thing I can say about it.

    "Welcome back Joe. We've missed you! We're glad to see you, and looking forward to 2018."
