Give Packers' president Murphy a chance to prove his restructuring move

For sure, there's been plenty of action in Titletown these days.
From coaching changes to a new general manager, there's also much talk about Green Bay Packers' president Mike Murphy restructuring the organization to hopefully, return it to the top of pro football.
From what has been reported, former GM Ted Thompson was the problem. Words such as disconnect, lack of communication and dysfunction have been floated throughout the media. Whether Thompson was stripped of his duties or simply wanted to return to what he enjoys most - scouting, Thompson's role was changed.
As for Murphy, he still reports to the executive committee. Head coach Mike McCarthy, new general manager Brian Gutekunst and Russ Ball, new executive vice president of football operations, report to Murphy, who is expected to have weekly meetings with his staff to get a better handle on football operations. For more than 20 years, the general manager oversaw the football operation side of the business. No more! Murphy's the main man.
I trust Murphy knows what he is doing.
A few of my friends and other Packers' fans agree. Others disagree and that's OK, too.
I say, let's wait and see how Murphy's method works for two seasons. Then we can judge.
