De'Vondre Campbell Doubles Down, Unleashes Brutally Honest Attack On Joe Barry

Yesterday we released an article discussing De’Vondre Campbell’s criticism of the Packers after being released. In it, we wondered if, as opposed to some of the other disgruntled players who have left the organization, perhaps Campbell had a case for his frustrations. Maybe he was just angry at the same guy every Cheesehead has been angry at for the past two years, Joe Barry.

Well, wonder no more.

On Sunday Campbell took to X to respond. to fans and give a scathing behind-the-scenes look at what it was like to play for Joe Barry. He attacked the former defensive coordinator by name and even went so far as to say he had private meetings with head coach Matt LaFleur that led to the team’s change in aggressiveness down the stretch.

If you’re wondering if this is just one player gone rogue, Adrian Amos was in the comments supporting his former teammates account.

And for those curious if the former linebacker held any ill will towards the organization, he quickly cleared that up and made a strong distinction between the coach that he played for and the organization and fans that he loved.

At this point it’s all water under the bridge. Jeff Hafley is now the defensive coordinator and the team is moving forward. But, as we mentioned yesterday this organization is primed for serious success in the coming years and perhaps one of its biggest unknowns is whether or not the head coach can hold his assistant coaches accountable.

Campbell’s words, backed up by Amos, are worth taking very seriously. It bears asking, why the heck did it take Lafleur so long to understand the thing that his fans and his own players knew from day one?
