The season is finally over for the Green Bay Packers.
It was a season to forget. Sunday's humiliating 31-0 defeat to the lowly NFC North Detroit Lions put the final stamp on the 2018 campaign. At least Green Bay's loss still kept the Lions in the NFC cellar for the season... barely. The Packers finished at 6-9-1 and the Lions 6-10.
It's not fair to begin where the Packers need to improve. Obviously, it starts with a new coaching staff. Then there's offense, defense, special teams. WOW!
A major re-load is a must. Now it's up to Packers' President Mark Murphy and General Manager Brian Gutekunst. Do you think they are going to have some sleepless nights?
Green Bay fans aren't used to losing, let alone two seasons in a row, and I'm sure they are looking for an instant fix. It's tough to do in the NFL, but I think the Packers can do it within a year or two.
No. 1: Find the right head coach and assistants.
No. 2: Acquire a few TRUE ALL-PRO FREE AGENTS.
No. 3: Have a blockbuster draft with players who can instantly step in and make an impact.
It can be done.
Thank goodness we have the Milwaukee Bucks and Milwaukee Brewers to look forward to until next fall.
