Thirty Sundays to NFL football: 30 reasons why we love the Green Bay Packers
Though Kevin Greene’s playing career was not with the Green Bay Packers, we all came to love this newly-inducted Hall-of-Famer when he joined the team’s coaching staff under Mike McCarthy several years ago.
Though Greene surprisingly walked away from the game a couple of years ago to spend more time with his family, his time in Green Bay saw great improvement in the play of the outside linebackers that worked under his tutelage.
Most notable was the work Greene did in helping to develop Clay Matthews III into the dominating player he is today.
And probably the most notable moment of Greene’s coaching career in Green Bay came in Super Bowl XLV when during a timeout midway through the second half he told Matthews that “It. Is Time …” His words were taken to heart by Matthews who went back into the game and promptly helped force a fumble that turned the fortunes of that game.
We congratulate Greene on his recent PFHOF induction and wish him the best in all his future endeavors.
