Packers end up signing large contracts to deal with their special team’s problems

The Green Bay Packers prone to the most unfortunate loss of all NFL team after this season. They earn unique goodbyes in NFC and hold San Francisco 49ers in the Split Circle.

The in-game narrative was that the Packers had a clear advantage in Wisconsin’s frigid weather. However, no one prepared for the teams that were particularly erroneous then.

They had a blocked goal late in the first half and brought three points across the board. Then came the gut-wrenching punch when the 49ers blocked a hit and returned it for an encounter late in the fourth quarter. San Francisco ultimately won 13-10 without scoring a single goal.

Special teams should never be the focus of a match, especially in a negative way. The end result here is Green Bay’s move from special team coordinator Maurice Drayton.

Maurice Drayton will not return as #Packers a special team coordinator, a source said. The story will come shortly.

Some fans may not put too much importance on who is chosen to be the coordinator of the special teams. But the Packers have a chance to find a major upgrade with their reported goal of fulfilling the role.

#Packers Coach Matt LaFleur has been in talks with Las Vegas Raiders specials coach / interim coach Rich Bisaccia… #Packers‘Special team coach, according to two sources. Packers will pay a lot to get him and they may be willing to do it.

Former Las Vegas Raiders interim head coach Rich Bisaccia is tipped to join the job and will be a huge hire. He led the Raiders to the playoff dock in an interim role and was the NFL’s special teams coordinator for two decades. He also served as assistant head coach on several teams during that time period.

The latest rumors say he is finalizing a deal to join the staff.

The packer still has one key question to answer

Landing Bisaccia would be a big win for Green Bay. They just saw a Super Bowl season come to an end because of mismanagement regarding blocking special teams. Bisaccia has risen to the rank of manager of special team units and now has experience as head coach under his line.

That means he appears as head coach Matt LaFleur’s top assistant and can help with any aspect of the game. But there is one question for the team that is bigger than anything else. That’s what will happen to Aaron Rodgers.

Let’s say the Packers hire Bisaccia and have one of the strongest coaching staff in the league. The luster of such a move would fade if Rodgers retires or asks to trade elsewhere.

The Packers could lose Hackett, Outten and Getsy, and with hiring Steno & Bisaccia still create a better coaching team overall in 2022.

The Packers will only be Super Bowl contenders if Rodgers continues. That’s why it’s so important to repair the special team unit, when he stays. It was the part of the game that was beyond the midfielder’s control.

Green Bay improving the unit by hiring Bisaccia could also be another step in persuading Rodgers to stay. His initial frustration with the team came when they drafted Jordan Love with the first pick in 2020. Rodgers went on to put out MVP numbers, changing plans in Green Bay.

Now they seem to be focusing on making him happy again by fixing a major broken thing with the team.
