Morning roundup: Schneider forms his philosophy in Seattle

Nov. 6, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

When John Schneider left the Green Bay Packers' front office to become the Seattle Seahawks' general manager three years ago, it was thought the De Pere native would mimic the teachings of his mentor, Ted Thompson. While Schneider has implemented some techniques of Packers' general manager, the 41-year-old Schneider has also proven to be his own man on the West Coast. As Press-Gazette reporter Rob Demovsky writes, the third-youngest general manager in the NFL has personified the forward-thinking Seattle culture from his league-leading 284 player transactions from February 2010 to January 2011 to the unconventional general manager-coach-owner triumvirate that seems to work. “I love working with Pete, and we have a very supportive owner who’s also very much an outside-the-box thinker himself and lets us be creative,” Schneider said this week. “That’s our standard. Pete and I are both outside-the-box thinkers, and our owner supports it and likes it.” Here are some other news and notes heading into Monday's showdown between the Packers and Seahawks: *Though the Packers listed Greg Jennings as questionable on their official injury report Saturday, coach Mike McCarthy appeared confident the receiver will play Monday night at Seattle, writes Pete Dougherty in the Packers' Sunday notebook. Jennings didn’t play last week because of a groin injury and wasn’t healthy enough to participate when the Packers’ practice week started Tuesday. But McCarthy said Jennings took almost all the snaps with the No. 1 offense in practice Saturday and made “a big jump from earlier in the week.” All signs suggest Jennings will play. “I thought he looked like himself,” McCarthy said of Jennings’ practice performance. Dougherty also goes on to discuss the Packers' injury statuses for Monday, cornerback Davon House's adjustment to his shoulder harness, the risk-reward of blitzing Seattle rookie quarterback Russell Wilson and the Packers heading back onto the road. -whodkiew@greenbaypressgazette.com and follow him on Twitter @WesHod.
