    Default Packers to interview Matt LaFleur

    Let's hope Green Bay views him as not ready yet to take full control as their head coach!

    I doubt the Packers select him, though with the stunt McDaniels pulled last year, McDaniels isn't a lock.

    It would be a little like the Titans hiring Vrabel. Vrabel sucked in his first year as defensive coordinator, but his pedigree was so good, the Titans were willing to give a chance (and it was a good hire).

    The main negative to this is that LaFleur is likely to be a head coaching candidate every year, so Mariota will likely get yet another OC in the next few years (assuming he is still on the team).

    Packers have decided to hire him. I just hate it for Mariota, who will be on his 4th OC going into his 5th season.

    Odd. You would think they would want a guy who was a successful OC on his own. Maybe he is like Vrabel last season when he was hired here, who was not a great DC in Houston.

    Exactly. This just like the Vrabel hire, where the pedigree is a lot more important than one year's results.

    Go get Mularkey. He is a very good OC.
