Packers hire Matt LaFleur as next head coach, but Seahawks won’t face GB in regular season next year; NFC gives another head coaching shot to a young offensive-minded person https://t.co/RnFdtuZh7h— Field Gulls (@FieldGulls) January 8, 2019
Matt LaFleur gets the HC job in Green Bay. Another former Skins offensive assistant getting a major job. Crazy. I think he will be great w Rodgers too— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) January 7, 2019
By hiring Matt LaFleur, the Packers are seeking their version of Sean McVay to work with Aaron Rodgers. LaFleur worked with McVay and Kyle Shanahan. Most recently was the offensive coordinator of the Titans.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) January 7, 2019
Shanny's tree bro.. put it back in your pants.— Redd Skinn (@Youngblood1970) January 8, 2019
Grant...what bothers me is people act like McVay was great on his own. Shanahan AND Gruden put him in a position to succeed. My point: Gruden's no slouch. McVay's just in a better organization.— Disco (@discoque5) January 8, 2019
Obviously remains to be seen how successful those guys’ careers are, but reminiscent of 2005 Cowboys staff. Sean Payton, Mike Zimmer, Anthony Lynn, Todd Haley, Todd Bowles, Tony Sparano all coached under Parcells— Anthony Gulizia (@AnthonyGulizia) January 8, 2019
... Mike Shanahan took heat for how young and inexperienced that staff was. People around the league laughed. Not any more. He clearly hand picked some smart up-and-comers.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 7, 2019
The one great coach who had no branches in coaching is Joe Gibbs. Let that sink in for a moment.— John Fosback (@jfosback) January 8, 2019
Yet another reminder that somehow Washington went from this to naming Jay Gruden HC. pic.twitter.com/Q88WHWSUDO— Matt Terl (@matt_terl) January 7, 2019
This is a good hire IMO for the #Redskins...@scottshepherd1 is a quality dude with a lot of experience with different teams, leagues and knows the #Redskins culture better than most. https://t.co/nFUZIBPGRO— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) January 8, 2019
Calvo was at Guest Services as their Director, Partnership Services. He started there in 2016 as a Manager, Business Development.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) January 7, 2019
He was with the Skins from March 2015-August 2016.
These are the first reported hirings to replace the departed executives last month.
You can also stop tweeting asking what this means for Bruce. Absolutely nothing as far as we know.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) January 7, 2019
You don't think that if I had information that something was happening with Bruce that it wouldn't be first?! I went to a good journalism school. Never bury the lede!
RIP former Redskin Bill Brundige. He blocked Miami's FG attempt in Super Bowl VII. https://t.co/I5vBXyPBjw— Rick Snider (@Snide_Remarks) January 7, 2019
When I say the attempts matter more than yards, it plays on the human reaction of coaches and players who are taught to stop the run at all costs. You fake and use run action early.. Then you come back with the run because the combination of the two creates hesitation— Bucky Brooks (@BuckyBrooks) January 7, 2019
That’s why you will see Shanahan and McVay and others use play-action passes with blocking action that mirrors their favorite runs.. The deception and misdirection is designed to bait second level defenses to create voids beyond the LBs.That’s why the explosive plays come off PA— Bucky Brooks (@BuckyBrooks) January 7, 2019

Falcons in 2016: Went to the Superbowl.— Dov Kleiman (@NFL_DovKleiman) January 7, 2019
Falcons in 2018: 7-9.
Matt Ryan in 2016: MVP, 4,994 passing yards, 38 TD total TDs, 7 INTs, 69.9 completion %.
Matt Ryan in 2018: Not even a Pro-Bowler, 4,924 passing yards, 38 TD total TDs, 7 INTs, 69.4 completion %.
It's amazing to me how "Eagles" fans can see better QB play and more clutch QB play in the biggest of moments by Nick Foles [he even set the team passing record] and still be fanboys of someone else as if a player matter above team success and winning more games. https://t.co/wSIGu7Rrky— Dov Kleiman (@NFL_DovKleiman) January 7, 2019

Both organizations fired black head coaches with rookie quarterbacks under center.— Master (@MasterTes) January 7, 2019
They are now interested in Kliff Kingsbury, who was fired after underperforming at Texas Tech. He went 35-40 in six seasons, and 1-2 in bowl games.
Kingsbury has zero NFL coaching experience. https://t.co/R3di6XXI8C
