A roundup of the latest Green Bay Packers articles for Thursday, Jan. 23.

Welcome to the Packers News Report.

If you haven’t watched Matt LaFleur’s season-ending press conference yet, it’s well worth checking out. It’s around half an hour long but he gives some interesting answers to the NFC Championship Game and the 2019 season as a whole.

One of the most interesting points was about his coaching staff. He didn’t commit to defensive coordinator Mike Pettine returning in 2020, but interestingly, it was reported later in the day that Pettine was being retained for next season. Still, one has to wonder whether LaFleur will be looking to make a few changes to his coaching staff in the coming days.

If you have already seen the press conference or read what LaFleur said, what were the biggest takeaways for you?

Today’s Packers News Report has some reaction to the press conference, as well as the team’s biggest offseason needs, and a 2020 NFL mock draft by FanSided.
