    Is Jim Bates still out of football? Is he still interested in coaching?? I believe he has the ability to turn around the soft run defense of the Pack in short order. I'd like to see McCarthy give him a call. Bring him in as a consultant, if nothing else. The guy can coach defense. I think we have the players, but they don't seem to get the scheme. Bates to the rescue....

    Well, that was a few years ago. I'd call him if I were McCarthy or Thompson. He turned around a similar defense in the short time that he was last here. Maybe he's at home waiting for a call from someone. If he says "go to hell" at least you tried.
