Packers Hire Kevin Greene And His Hair


New Packers OLB coach? Kevin Greene. Or is it player/coach, I'm not sure. "Hey Poppinga, you suck! Gimme that helmet, I'm going in..."

I remember his legendary feud with Steve 'Mongo' McMichaels in WCW. Good times.

When Greene was with the Steelers didn't he hit Favre so hard that he came out of the game and threw up blood? Jim McMahon had to come in for a few snaps. I could be wrong, but if I'm right, this may be TT's way of making sure old #4 doesn't show up in camp again this year after the Jets cut him loose.

The Jets can't cut Favre FYI.

TT the genious that he is has it in the "posion" pill in the deal that if Favre ends up on an NFC north team, the Jets owe the Packers 3 1st round picks. Hence the Jet's won't cut Favre under any circumstances.

Wrong - The Jets lose draft picks if they TRADE Favre to an NFC North team, not cut him.

Yep, that was Greene that hit Favre. It was the last game of 1995, against the Steelers. Apparently, the blood came from cutting his tongue.

Between Capers and Greene, the new defensive coaching staff has a little more personality than Green Bay has been used to in previous years. If nothing else, the press conferences will be more interesting.

And apparently Kevin Green was in the Army Reserve for 20 years (O-3) and has his jump wings... so I guess there's a little more than meets the eye with Coach Greene.

Fantastic hire.
