Slocum making sure Packers' kick returns improve

There are 3 comments on the Wausau Daily Herald story from Jul 1, 2009, titled Slocum making sure Packers' kick returns improve. In it, Wausau Daily Herald reports that:

First-year special teams coordinator Shawn Slocum is taking the Green Bay Packers back to basics on kick returns, and why shouldn't he? No team has fared worse on them in recent years than the Packers, whose 20.10-yard average last season again put them at the bottom of the NFL.

Improving from worst in the NFL should not be that difficult. Who was responsible to make sure that the Packers had the players and coaches necessary to rank better than last?

Four years after Ted Thompson arrived in Green Bay they rank last. Just one more fact proving that TT is a loser and a failure.

Set aside some time for covering kicks, if you please. It killed us last season. I got tired of watching Mason Crosby make tackles (he had 4 solo--which means he saved us 24 pts).

Everybody mentions the need for the Defense to improve. It does need to improve. However, the special teams have much room for improvement also. Personnel is always more important than schemes, but I hope that whatever changes are made are good ones.
