1.) Both Winston Moss and Mike Nolan are sure to replace Bob Sanders as the new Packers defensive coordinator. Just ask Michael Lombardi from two days ago and Michael Lombardi from yesterday:
Michael Lombardi from two days ago:
Keeping Moss tells me the Packers may interview others, but they will end up hiring him.
Michael Lombardi from yesterday:
Mike Nolan is coming on board very soon.
It’s always great to be sure that you’re right, no matter what.
4.) Green Bay’s 2009 opponents:
Home: Chicago, Detroit, Minnesota, San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas, Baltimore, Cincinatti
Away: Chicago, Detroit, Minnesota, Arizona, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Cleveland, Pittsburgh
The dates and times of the games will be determined at a later time. The Packers should have a great shot at making it back to the playoffs with a schedule like this. They’ll play the worst division in the NFC (the NFC West), the other 3rd place finishers from the NFC East and South, and the 2nd-worst division in the AFC against NFC teams (the AFC North).
