What do you feel about this?
Green Bay's DC is moving from the booth to the sidelines to get a different view of a defense that is expected to make a big jump in his second year.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Mike Pettine once explained his decision to coordinate the Green Bay Packers defense from high above in the coaches’ box, in part, like this:
"I'm an information guy," Pettine said. "I'll have a lot of information spread out in front of me. When you're on the sideline, you're usually limited to kind of what you're carrying, and I don't want to be that guy that looks like he's flipping through a Cheesecake Factory menu while I'm looking for stuff on defense."
Don’t send any waiters or waitresses to the sidelines this year because Pettine will be there flipping pages looking for the right blitzes -- not trying to order blintzes.
A significant jump is expected from the Packers’ defense in Pettine’s second year as coordinator, and he wants a different view than he had last season. Pettine has coached from the sideline in the two preseason games this year and plans to remain there when the regular season begins. It’s a big change, especially for someone who spoke in such detail before last season about why he preferred to coach from the 700 level suites at Lambeau Field and high above in other stadiums.
"I just felt the need to be a little bit more hands-on," Pettine said.
