This season, the Green Bay Packers are anticipated to struggle at times. Growing pains are an inevitable component of every team’s transition into a new era. However, after a 2-1 start, the club felt upbeat about this offensive and what it could do this year.
Since that 2-1 start, the squad has lost four consecutive games and is seeking for success in every aspect of the game. Recent developments in the NFL have raised concerns about one of the Packers’ coaches perhaps departing for a well-known opportunity.
The Las Vegas Raiders dismissed both Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler on Wednesday. Bisaccia, of course, came over from Vegas to the Packers after briefly serving as interim head coach.
Many believed Bisaccia was the best candidate for the job, but the Raiders opted to go in a different way. That strategy backfired for the club, and after learning of the termination, media inquired about a prospective reunion:
“I’ll let you know in January,” Bisaccia said with a smile on Thursday.
“I’m trying to dominate the controllables in my life,” Bisaccia said. “I think it’s kind of a thing we all try to do. We try to teach our kids that. I don’t wish anybody any ill. To be honest with you, I’d walked away from that situation a long time ago. Probably the first time I stood at this podium, I really distanced myself from what happened there”.
The Packers’ special teams coordinator, in his second season, was not about to revel in McDaniels’ dismissal. Instead, he chose the high road and concentrated on the moment.
Bisaccia will undoubtedly be a name to keep an eye on this offseason. For years, his reputation has grown around the league. Many people were surprised when he was hired as the special teams coach in Green Bay. Is was largely expected to play a greater part on the next squad he joined.
Packers supporters may celebrate that he will be in town for the rest of the season; but, nothing is assured beyond that.
