Green Bay Packers outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene is a Pro Football Hall of Fame finalist for the third year in a row.

Greene played the majority of his career (8 years) with the Los Angeles Rams. That’s right, Los Angeles used to have a football team, back when shit was right. Greene also played for the Pittsburgh Steelers (3), Carolina Panthers (3) and San Francisco 49ers (1).

He was a five-time Pro Bowler and two-time first-team All Pro. Twice, Greene led the NFL in sacks — 1994 with 14 and 1996 with 14.5. He was 32 and 34 in those respective seasons.

Greene had more than 16 sacks in a season twice in his career, notching 16.5 in both 1988 and 1989. In his final season, at the age of 37, he registered 12 sacks.

His 160 career sacks rank third all time.

In other words, put this guy in the Hall already, huh?

In case you don’t know, experience the terror.

    LA has had 4 pro football teams, wonder why they all left.

    Idea for the next LA team name: The Silicone Valley Twin Peaks.

    This does kid of seem like a no-brainer.

    Wonder how he would do in Dom’s shoes…
    Purely hypothetical, of course.

    Maybe the intensity that he brought as a player is one of those intangibles that you either have or you don’t, like AR’s ‘it’ factor. Maybe that’s something that can’t be coached. You see flashes of it from CMIII among the OLB’s, but otherwise that’s it.

    TT, go find another crazy man like Greene in the draft, someone who’s not quite right in the head, and plays like it every down. An absolute fire-breathing manimal that likes to feed on QB’s.
