Black Monday: Who Might The Packers Lose Now That Everyone Has Been Fired?

The Green Bay Packers should expect to see some changes in their front office, and possibly their coaching staff, in the near future. Unlike the other dozen or so teams that are clearing house on Black Monday, the Packers shouldn't be expected to fire anyone for doing a bad job. But they might be on the short list for teams in the market for a new General Manager.

At least, that was my first thought when I saw that the San Diego Chargers hired former Packers GM Ron Wolf to help them find their new GM. Last year, Wolf was outspoken in his support for Reggie McKenzie as the Raiders next GM, who was eventually hired in Oakland.

If I was in the market for a new GM, I would certainly speak with the Packers' Director of Football Operations, John Dorsey. He took over their pro operations after McKenzie departed last spring. He had been in charge of their college scouting for the previous decade. Those years come with some good times (the Ted Thompson era) and some bad moments (the Mike Sherman era). Either way, it's a solid resume with a long history.
