What is going at Packer HQ?

The team is void of talent and depth is obvious. Yet while other contenders have made moves, Packers are bargain shopping at the clearance isle.

Bears paid a high price for Mack but also got an elite player that improved their Defense.

Cowboys needed help and a weapon for their Offense and traded for Go To WR Cooper.

Rams a SB favorite went and got Flowers to bolster their D Line.

Lions got their new DL off the Giant's fire sale.

Now the Saints signed Bryant to a one year deal.

So losing Allison for the year after already losing Special K before season didn't warrant even checking out Bryant or having a lack of pass rush and losing Wilkerson for year didn't warrant the DL Lions got or checking out Flowers?

Not saying these are the only moves, but are examples.

The year Favre won the SB, Brooks went down and RW got Rison.

Even Rodgers SB year, we had a ton of injured players and found replacements.

So what is going on? Has Gutey figured this is a lost year and total rebuild? Or has the loss of Elliott and McKenzie, who previously help find NFL replacements, hurt the process?

a lot of questions with only guesses for answers

It's about as big a rebuild as you get without needing a QB also. GB is not a SB contender. It's not like Bryant makes them one either. This roster is really not good. No need to make those moves right now.

Even more questions after MM threw the Whitehead release at Gutey despite the fact that MM has control of roster and reports to Murphy?

Everyone says this but nothing suggests it's actually true. Gute has control of the roster. Or rather, Murphy does and seems to be siding with Gute?

McCarthy has always played the blame game. Some of us have been saying it for years. It's just more obvious this year because there are others in the organization who are joining right in, and helping themselves to a chunk of the action.

To be fair to MM, in years past TT would make moves and then offer no explanation for them until February at the combine. Then MM would have to get up in front of the media and answer for them whether he was on board or not. It's a tough spot to be in.
