Re: Stew Morrill should coach a High School team

Stew is enjoying retirement in Windsor, CO. and having fun with grandkids and taking care of Vickie. I don't think coaching or analyzing games is on his event horizon.

Re: Packers QB depth chart

Love is right where the Packers expected him to be, with no mini-camps or organized team activities leading up to training camp. So him being 3rd on the depth chart is not unexpected. He is a developmental QB and they are treating him like one! His job is to watch, learn and execute in practices ove...
