It hasn’t been such a beautiful week in Aaron Rodgers’ neighborhood Brett Hundley Jersey White , as the Green Bay Packers have made not just one but two coaching changes since last Sunday’s loss to Arizona.In such a week that has left many fans feeling like the organization is spiraling out of control, Green Bay also lost another key player to injured reserve as the season nears a welcome finish. Rather than diving into the endless abyss of coaching rumors, I felt inclined to review three non-staff thoughts for the week, including a final more optimistic one.Have the Packers missed Aaron Ripkowski?Count me as one who thought the Packers could benefit from straying away from keeping a fullback during the final cuts of preseason. However, a part of me is beginning to re-think that notion.I’m not saying that he would have entirely solved the Packers’ special teams woes this season, but Ripkowski appeared in over 46% of Green Bay’s special teams plays in 2017. That level of experience, along with the fact that Ripkowski never logged a special teams penalty in a Packer uniform, may be something the Packers have missed in a year of errors.Offensively, Ripkowski committed just one penalty in three seasons with Green Bay as well and was instrumental as a pass blocker on third downs. Although the Packers have lined up Lance Kendricks in the backfield this season in the H-back role without Ripkowski and have also used Jamaal Williams in pass protection, there’s a possibility that Aaron Rodgers has lacked the comfort in the pocket that players like John Kuhn and Ripkowski have provided over the years. Rodgers and the Packers have had far too many struggles on third down to list Ripkowski as a savior of the offense, but there stands a chance that his role in both the running and passing games on that down has been missed in 2018. For what it is worth, fullback Danny Vitale, who was a promising special teams player in his first two years with Cleveland, was recently promoted to the active roster and had eight special teams snaps last Sunday, as well as three offensively. Under Joe Philbin, will the Packers return to using a fullback more prominently?Not being able to see the full depth of the Packers’ cornerback group has been a disappointmentJaire Alexander is a stud at cornerback and a real bright spot for the Packers moving forward. Josh Jackson has been picked on, but there is still plenty of optimism that he will overcome rookie mistakes and learn from opponent tendencies as he grows. Jackson’s relative inexperience after bursting on to the scene as a junior at Iowa is often forgotten, as is the fact that he was a wide receiver just three years ago as a freshman. These last four games of the season are great opportunities for Jackson to work on his craft and get meaningful regular season snaps alongside Alexander to grow together.But it sure would have been nice to see Alexander and Jackson growing with Kevin King on the field as well. As the Packers’ first picks of each of the past two drafts Marwin Evans Jersey White , Alexander and King have loads of athleticism and potential to contribute to the defense. That they have only played four games together all season is a disappointment. King closing the season on injured reserve for the second consecutive season is not only disappointing but concerning. The King versus TJ Watt debate will likely be an ongoing one, but there’s no doubting that King was a player the Packers needed at that time and still do. Sadly, it’s been a lost season.While Tony Brown looks promising as a cover man after joining the Packers as a former undrafted free agent, the addition of Bashaud Breeland was supposed to be one that gave the Packers extra talent. At the time, Breeland’s signing looked like an absolute steal after signing for one year at just over $740,000 after his three-year, $24 million deal with Carolina was nullified by a failed physical in spring. But by playing just three games for Green Bay since then, Breeland has been a relative non-factor. If the Packers had King and Breeland on the field right now, the Packers’ cornerback crew of the five names listed above might be more of a talking point around the NFL than what it has been.Packers have a chance to beef up their lines with first three picksAs of now, Green Bay is in line for the 10th pick of the first and second rounds in addition to a late-first selection from New Orleans. That provides the Packers with plenty of ammunition to address the outside of both the offensive and defensive lines.On offense, a pair of standout SEC tackles in Greg Little of Ole Miss and Jonah Williams of Alabama could be early first-round targets if they declare for the draft as juniors. Little is no way to describe Greg Little, a 6’6,” 325-pound specimen who is athletic in pass protection and gets to the second level quickly as a run blocker. With NFL coaching on technique, Little could be a quick insert at right tackle with the status of Bryan Bulaga and Jason Spriggs in question. If nothing else, Little would be an insurance option at left tackle while being groomed to eventually take over a starting role.For a team that has lacked impact edge rushing this season, the Packers figure to have options throughout the first and early second rounds if underclassmen declare as expected. Kentucky’s Josh Allen, Florida’s Jachai Polite, Mississippi State’s Montez Sweat http://www.packerslockerroom.com/authentic-oren-burks-jersey , and Florida State’s Brian Burns each would give Green Bay the bendy, speed rushing prospect they have a high demand for. It’s very possible the Packers could grab two defensive linemen/edge rushers with their first two picks and, in that case, don’t count out an interior player like Mississippi State’s Jeffery Simmons, who has the strength, motor, and versatility to be a dynamic multi-faceted defender.Personally, I find this upcoming draft to be exceptionally intriguing. It is not often the Packers have three picks in the top 45 (at least a decent chance of that happening) and the crop of talent available offers many day one starters. With more than a year gone since Mark Murphy shook things up, continuing to speculate about whether there could be issues down the road seems less important than focusing on the impacts it is making right now."It seems that Green Bay Packers fans are unable to go even a few weeks without some sort of drama swirling around our team. Last year it was Ted Thompson’s abrupt step back from the GM job, something we now know was due to his health problems. Then it was the hiring of Brian Gutekunst as his replacement, which coincided with team president Mark Murphy changing the team’s entire power structure.Near the end of the 2018 football season, it was the firing of Mike McCarthy and eventual hiring of Matt LaFleur as head coach. Then, just when things seemed to be settling in with the team as offseason workouts began, a report that tried to describe McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers’ relationship came out, causing another swirl of drama and frustration.Now, we have renewed angst about the structure at the top of the organization, which has already been in place for over a year. Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel published a lengthy article on Thursday that examines the structure yet again, this time with interviews from current and former members of the organization. Check out the piece below:Critics of Mark Murphy’s new Packers management structure say it could lead to dysfunction | Packersnews.comHowever Vince Biegel Jersey White , this headline and the first portion of the article, which amounts to speculation about whether or not dysfunction could happen down the road, provides nothing new or substantive. Sure, dividing up coaching, personnel, and organizational leadership duties without having a single person with a clear direction at the helm can lead to problems. Plenty of individuals inside and outside the organization have raised these same concerns, starting as early as the day the new structure was announced in January of 2018. Of course, it’s also possible, though arguably less likely, that the leadership triumvirate can work.Regardless of continued speculation about whether this structure could affect the team, it has been in place for over a year now. That makes the relevant point now whether (and how) it is actually affecting the team, especially since, according to the piece, it does seem to have impacted the way that Matt LaFleur’s coaching staff came together.Did Murphy see Thompson’s step down as a chance to grab more power over the team’s football operations, and is that already causing problems? Does the fact that Russ Ball — instead of Gutekunst — apparently manages the day-to-day workings of the organization actually matter? Did Ball or Murphy meddle in LaFleur’s assistant coaching hires? These are some of the more important questions that Silverstein does seem to ask in the article, which are hidden deeper in the piece. Naturally, he seems to find some conflicting answers to them.Still, the biggest factor in the team making it back to a Super Bowl in the near future is probably whether LaFleur and Rodgers can connect and buy in together Womens Demetri Goodson Jersey , not. After all, Rodgers’ abilities certainly have a chance to cover up any problems that might arise from struggles behind the scenes. And if that doesn’t happen, expect things to get a major shakeup when he does eventually leave Green Bay.As has been the case with this team for the last 18 months or so, there are far more questions than answers about the Packers right now. Here’s hoping that more of those answers are positive than negative in 2019 and beyond.And here’s some of the other news going around Green Bay today.Aaron Rodgers surprises child cancer survivors with a photobomb | Green Bay Press-GazetteReminder that Rodgers' charity work is just as impressive -- if not more so -- than his work on the field.Packers rookie Darnell Savage says he’s run 4.29 in the 40 | Packers WireAnd we thought his 4.36 time at the Combine was fast...the important thing here is that his exceptional speed shows up on the tape.Gremminger went underappreciated as versatile DB for Lombardi | Packers.comPerhaps because he left the Packers before the 1966 season, Gremminger's name is one that is lost on a lot of younger fans of the team -- myself included.
