    Think he's going to have extra motivation to kick our behinds? I know he wanted the head coaching job here, and was VERY disappointed when the job went to MM.

    Wow, this is the first time I've noticed TT mentioned in quite a while. Its funny how certain people are almost forgotten once the season starts. Haha!

    This proves that it's mostly about personnel, as the Packer defensive system is the same one used by Bates in Denver.
