Finally! Some good news out of Green Bay.
Green Bay - Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Bob Sanders has been fired by coach Mike McCarthy, according to a report at nationalfootballpost.com.
Players on the Packers' defense had not been told of the move yet.
The web site is run by Andrew Brandt, the Packers' former VP of player finance, and Jack Bechta, the agent of cornerback Al Harris. No other details were offered.
Sanders' ouster follows the retirement of special teams coordinator Mike Stock by just a few days.
Perhaps the days of safest place for for an opposing team being 3rd and long are now over.
