Packers News: Rich Bisaccia starts working his magic

Green Bay reclamation project is underway.

The huge task that has been put on the shoulders of Green Bay Packers special coordinator Rich Bisaccia begins in earnest with the rookie little camp. Special teams are where several unrecorded free agents or low-round draft picks can earn their place on the roster, so Bisaccia put them through their paces at least for parts of the sessions last week.

Nowhere to go but Green Bay specials that have been pretty bad for at least a decade and go through a ton of coordinators. The mere fact of having qualified core special teams may have been enough for the players to participate for the third consecutive time in the NFC Championship, but instead a banned kick turned Green Bay’s playoff fortunes upside down a year ago.

Competition is wide open in multiple locations including returning and cover groups, so look to Bisaccia to continue mixing and matching pieces even through boot camp as he tries to strike the right balance.

It’s a long way from the bunker but the firmnesses finally have a guy who can do it. It’ll be a relief when September comes when fans don’t have to hold their breath every time the Packers kick or take a kick, although Bisaccia must forgive us if it took a while (pardon the pun) to kick the habit.

If Bisaccia performs a miracle and makes the Green Bay unit into the top ten in the league, “we are fense” could be added to many of the mantras that many Packers fans associate with their team.

The longer these big names go unsigned, the cheaper they become, which is in the Packers’ best interest. Personally, give me Julio Jones or Jarvis Landry.
