Morning roundup: Most NFL coaches have limited shelf life

Oct. 20, 2012
 

Pete Dougherty explores the shelf life of NFL coaches. (http://tinyurl.com/8lu3kgj)

Writes Dougherty in his column:" Looking through the NFLís history of good and even great coaches, thereís a pattern. Whether they start poorly or well, most have their greatest success in their first 10 to 12 years with a team, then tail off to varying degrees thereafter."

Also worth reading:

* In Wes Hodkiewicz's Packers notebook (http://tinyurl.com/9dex2wf), we learn that B.J. Raji will be missing his second straight game. Raji was one of four Packers starters ruled out for Sunday, along with wide receiver Greg Jennings (groin), linebacker Nick Perry (knee) and cornerback Sam Shields (shin/ankle).

* Rob Demovsky reports that backup quarterback Graham Harrell should be more prepared than ever to fill in should Aaron Rodgers get injured. (http://tinyurl.com/9y7c2ly)

* Hodkiewicz catches up with Green Bay Southwest graduate and recent Packers practice squad signee Drew Vanderlin, a defensive lineman. Vanderlin will make $5,700 per week as a member of the practice squad. (http://tinyurl.com/9ho6a2h).

*In his By the Numbers column, Eric Goska finds that the Packers and Rams are on the opposite end of the touchdown spectrum. (http://tinyurl.com/8fus5yu).

*In Demovsky's Packers Insider, James Jones receives a Thumbs Up. Meanwhile, the Packers are in danger of falling to 0-3 against NFC West opponents this season. (http://tinyurl.com/928f8ml).
