Packers dismiss Donatell, Jagodzinski from coaching staff (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=ap-packerscoaches&prov=ap&type=lgns)

Donatell deserved it for sure...
The Packers lost 20-17 in overtime in the second round of the playoffs to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The Eagles converted on fourth-and-26 late in the fourth quarter, with Donovan McNabb passing to Freddie Mitchell to set up a game-tying field goal.

That play came after Donatell decided to play a four-across zone after three straight blitzes had backed up the Eagles to their 26 with 1:26 remaining in regulation. DB coach s/b fired too

"I didn't see it coming, but Mike has been fair to me," Donatell said. BS - he s/have had his resume ready for a high school position after that debacle

It also didn't help that the refs gave Mitchell an extra yard & a half of field. The Packers should have called time out before McNabb spiked the ball to give the booth time to look at the play & review because I'm still not so sure that he got the first down.
