Just came across the wire the Bears are not likely to re-sign him.

Would be awfully nice as a change of pace, plus a weapon in the passing game. Would do wonders on 3rd down (needed). Plenty left in the tank from what I saw. 

Depends on the $$$, but needs to be looked at pretty seriously, imo.  

Kevin Greene Wants to Return, Dom Capers Says No

By Joseph Bonham, 9:00 am

Kevin Greene abruptly left the Green Bay Packers and coaching in January 2014, just days after the team’s season ended at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers.

Greene, who coached the Packers’ outside linebackers from 2009-13, stepped away to spend time with his family. Now, the newly-elected Hall of Famer wants to get back in the game.

Greene has expressed interest in returning to the Packers. Unfortunately, defensive coordinator Dom Capers has already killed that possibility.

“I’m sure you’ll see Kevin at some point in time back in the league coaching,” Capers said. “There’s nothing available (with the Packers). That’s always (a big factor) in this business in terms of availability. But he’s a passionate guy. He did a good job for us in the five years he was here.”

When Greene left, the Packers removed the “inside” from inside linebackers coach Winston Moss’ job title. On paper, Moss coaches all linebackers. In reality, he still only coaches inside linebackers and assistant linebackers coach Scott McCurley coaches outside linebackers.

As for Capers’ assertion that the Packers don’t have an opening, well… When a talented individual comes along and you don’t have an opening, you create one.

Greene brought something to the Packers that no other coach on Mike McCarthy’s staff ever has.

Fire.

Passion.

His presence was refreshing, especially when compared to the dour, dull Capers.

We can only assume the Packers’ reluctance to bring Greene back is because either, A. someone is holding a grudge over his unexpected departure or, B. someone is worried about their job.

Nebraska is visiting Wisconsin tonight. Game is on BigTen network now.   Nebraska is without their best player who is out with a concussion.   Badgers lead 30-26 at the half. Vitto Brown is leading the Badgers with 12 points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I found out today that one of the twins (the one on the right) in the Super Bowl Babies commercial works here where I do. (Different building - we have three connected by walkways.)

She and her sister responded to an ad in the GB Press-Gazette. After a series of interviews and a singing audition via Skype, they were chosen to participate. They were flown out to New York for a week for filming. So...no, that is not a Wisconsin lake in the background. She said that they didn't know what the commercial was going to be about until they got out there.

She said she didn't hold any "viewing" party. She and her husband just watched at home.

Yes fans

Bruford or White?

It was a catch.

They had enough time to overcome the call. First half.

What do you think is easier? Fielding a top 5 defense or finding a franchise QB along the lines of Brady, Manning (not now, back when he actually had an arm), Rodgers, Favre, Young, etc?

Last night was another in a long line of examples in that defense indeed wins championships. IMO, I think it's a much more realistic task to field a top defense then find a HOFer QB who you can ride to the SB. From 2011-2014, GB has relied on Rodgers to play essentially out of his mind. Those defenses had some flashes of playing decently, but whether it was a glaring hole at ILB or FS, not enough pass rush, or breakdowns in the DB, the Packers D simply weren't good enough. 

In Favre's prime, after 1998 it was the same issue. Usually a top 5-10 offense, but a defense that came up short again and again.

From the 2nd half of 2014 through last season the defense has improved. The question is how much can they improve in 2016? Myself included, I know we've talked about addressing the TE position and shoring up the OL. But when it comes right down to it, the defense is where it's at. And where it probably always will be.
