Kevin Greene on board

by

Sorry, we’ve been on a mini-vacation of some sort here due mostly to an incredible NFL lull right now. Thanks to several readers for pointing this Kevin Greene news out. Read here from Tom Silverstein for more. Curious that we now will have 2 coaches for the linebackers. Soon, Mason Crosby will have a kicking foot coach and a plant foot coach. Jokes aside, I don’t mind bringing in a guy like Kevin Greene. He was a fiery player and I’m hopeful he can help light a fire under some of the players to raise our overall level of intensity.

The biggest question, however, may be: will Greene sport a spectacular mullet as a coach too?

    I think we should bring back the player-coach and give Greene a jersey.

    Greene is going to try to make Kampman into Kevin Greene.

    i like the move. i think a smaller student to professor ratio can only make the packers a more successful midwestern liberal arts college.

    but as i noted in a comment over at cheeseheadtv, following many such jokes about an excess of coaches — as much as i’m all for fiscal responsibility and keeping things simple when it makes sense — i doubt greene can have a negative influence on young players. i don’t know if he can coach either, but i like the model belichick seemed to follow — if a guy can help in any way make the team better or more motivated — invent a position for him. who knows what capers’ real job was in new england, but you can bet his absence won’t be a positive, simplifying force in new england next year.

    Good enough for me:

    “Greene personified the 3-4 outside linebacker in Capers’ blitz-happy defense, finishing third on the NFL’s all-time sack list behind Bruce Smith and Reggie White. His understanding of the position will help potential outside linebackers Aaron Kampman, Brady Poppinga, Desmond Bishop and Jeremy Thompson adjust to a new position.

    “I played four years with Dom, two in Pittsburgh and two in Carolina,” Greene said. “Two of those years I led the NFL in sacks. We were always very productive with our 3-4 blitz scheme. I’m very familiar with what he’s trying to implement.”

    DaveK, I thought we were done with using the word Poppinga in blogs for now on….

  6. DaveK Says:

    Agreed!

    Maybe Greene will actually suggest we find someone other than P——-a (since we’re not using his name any more) once he sees him in action. One thing I am liking about some of these defensive coaches we are hiring is their experience & confidence. IF TT is really a problem & MM & TT do have too much player loyalty I have a feeling Capers or Greene will not hang around long if they cannot get the personnel they need because TT likes a guy too much–and I doubt they leave quietly.

    Or possibly, Greene gets P——a to man up and be a better football player.

    Glad to see you’re back. I was beginning to wonder why there was no news here when the Journal Sentinel was reporting stuff. Tickets are now on sale for Fan Fest at Lambeau in March through ticketmaster.

    Haven’t been to the Fan Fest. I was at the draft party though last year which was a lot of fun. A lot of Brohm and Flowers were in the mock drafts but I don’t remember seeing one with Jordy Nelson being the packers first pick lol. Fan Fest sounds like it has a lot of the same events that the draft party does. And the draft party is only $25! So I will probably go to the DP this year too. Maybe I will meet someone from the Packer blogs this year :)

  10. Cindy V Says:

    I go to the draft party as well. Fan fest is mostly standing in line and getting autographs of the players, old-timers and current. On draft day you do get a couple of autographs, but the draft is the main event. I enjoy going to both.
