Reporting as Eligible: Barry the Lede

The Packers have a new defensive coordinator and he has quite the resume.

Several Acme Packing Company contributors have joined forces for a Packers-focused podcast: Reporting As Eligible. If you’ve ever wondered what Paul Noonan, Rcon14, or Matub sound like in real life, tune in as they join JR Radcliffe of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel for discussion and banter about the Packers and whatever else is going on out there.

This week, the guys discuss how good LeRoy Butler was as a modern, well-rounded safety, and how unimpressive John Lynch was as a concussion machine who garnered the favor of HOF voters through a front office position. Paul also tells the tale of new defensive coordinator Joe Barry’s long and spotty trek to land the job, which mostly involves being friends and relatives with better coaches.

In more positive news, Maurice Drayton has the makings of a good special teams coordinator, the team may be able to actually spend in a depressed but high-quality free agent market, Carson Wentz might be a Bear, which is incredibly hilarious, and Charles Woodson is simply awesome.

Plus listener questions!
