    I'd read that Coach Bates is still living in the GB area.

    Would anyone be able to verify this?

    If this team really wants to get better, they would have already contacted Bates about coming back to coach that defense.

    Bates had a great year for Green Bay, 4 wins! What a defense! Perhaps Packer fans should set their goals a bit higher?

    i think the reason we where top in pass d is because the other teams did not have to pass alot because they where awalys ahead.

    exactly.

    No question we had a better defense under him, but we truly weren't #! against the pass. Plus, we didn't generate a lot of turnovers.

    right on.

    its ridiculous that these people are willing to give a coach that no one else wants a chance to be our head coach after a 4 win season in which he had a top ranked pass defense. even though our run defense was down in the high 20s range. because teams didnt need to pass... they just ran it down our throat.

    but they wont give our current staff the time of day. you tell me what makes bates a better choice. there are no fact supporting his case. Its simply a case of the grass is greener.

    All I know is that one of the main reasons Bates took the DC job in Green Bay in the first place was because his wife had family in the Plainfield/Wisconsin Rapids area. I would not be at all surprised if they have stayed in the area.

    As to the Bates coached defense, regardless of what the rankings were last year they can't have been worse than what we have now.

    I know for a fact that he lives in Oneida, Wisconsin.

    There you have it, let's close up this thread!
