It’s not racist, it’s an opinion. The Rooney rule mandates that a minority must be interviewed. I also would be surprised if Caldwell is hired by the Packers

He also had a HOF QB. Most HCs would successful with Peyton Manning as QB.

The over-analyzer in me says the Packers must know who their 1st choice are and are getting this out of the way so they can pounce quickly after the season.

LOL

Rooney rule box is now checked.

This makes perfect sense.  Race is no longer an issue in interviewing candidates.  Smart move.

Let's just get this out of the way so we can start the search for the guy we really want 

exacltly.  Just getting the Rooney Rule requiremnets over with so it is no longer an issue.  That's a good management decision.

Lets talk coaching candidates without giving our opinions of the Rooney rule. It will just turn this thread into a political discussion and get the thread locked. 

Thanks guys and go Jets.

I don’t think Caldwell even fulfills the Rooney Rule anyways. The spirit of the rule was to give up and coming coordinators an interview shot to boost their resume. Not a box to check.

 

As a former HC, Caldwell fulfilling the Rooney Rule would make it a complete farce.

 

Caldwell is either the right guy for GB or he’s not. Rooney Rule has nothing to do with it. Or at least it shouldn’t.

I like Caldwell. I prefer him to McCarthy. 

The Jets out coached Caldwell and won a playoff game against him with Mark Sanchez at QB while the Colts were playing at home with Peyton Manning as their QB.  Yeah.  let that sink in.

agreed.  But nevertheless, under the rules, the Rooney Rule box is now checked. I am too cynical not to think that was a significant motive here.

The same thing is true for Belichick and Brady the week after so I’m not sure if your point is valid.

In 4 seasons with the Lions he only put up 1 losing season and went 9-7 after losing Calvin Johnson. 

Caldwell isn’t my first choice but he has a track record of success relative to most coaches available. McCarthy and Caldwell have similar resumes except McCarthy did it with Rodgers at QB while Caldwell did it with Stafford/ 1 season of a fully functioning Manning.

This is why you fire a busted HC mid-season.  The Packers are already starting their HC search and have knocked off the Rooney Rule.

Maybe the Jets get a pass on the Rooney Rule since Bowles has been HC for four years?

Green Bay is the dream HC job for a real football person.  I would expect that they have first dibs on whomever they want.

I dont know about you but I'm not worried that they got a 1 week head start in interviewing Caldwell.
