APC Podcast, 1/29: Packers Report Card — grading the GM and coaches

New, comments

We break out the red pens and grade the 2019 job performance for the Packers GM and coaches.

In today’s episode — our first official offseason podcast of 2020 — we broke out the red pens and channeled our inner teachers. That’s right, it’s Packers report card season. First up is the coaches and GM.

  • Did Brian Gutekunst pull enough strings as GM to earn a passing grade?
  • How did Matt LaFleur fare in his first year as Packers head coach and signal caller?
  • How much should Pettine’s prime-time failings influence his overall grade?
  • Is Shawn Mennenga worth keeping around for another year?
  • ...and what is it you’d say Nathaniel Hackett actually does?

Our composite grades are posted below, along with our weighting system — but we’d love to hear from you! Hit us in the comments section with your grades, your reasoning, and even your own weighting system if you want extra credit.
