"Heck I would not want to be a ten year old kid in America right now. It was a blast to be ten years old in 1970."
Right on RP...the music and the drugs were better back then!
(oops..forgot this was a Packer board...only kidding folks!....)
(Hell..we used to hunt, fish, trap, play football, baseball, ride dirtbikes..save up our milk money to buy beer...(all the good stuff)...and be miles away from home for hours and hours with our mothers not knowing where the hell we were...and nothing bad ever happened..(luckily)...we seemed to have turned out aaaiigghht!)
"With the large amount of turnover of veterans this year, we need to find new spark plugs. On offense you have Brett and maybe Driver. On D, Barnett maybe, Harris at times. As a coach you have to find the field generals that you rev up. We are missing that in which a Reggie brought more so than talent, emotional leadership on the field."
Sorry to disagree Pack93z but motivation comes from the TOP down...Human Psychology dictates that football teams reflect the personality of their coaches (leaders), and if you have a monotone, nebishy, effete, pansy for a coach..that is the kind of team you will field...soft...
Other teams have coaches who can motivate them....and they play with fire! (Ravens, Jaguars, Panthers, Eagles, Bucs...come to mind..there are others...just not the PAckers..right now)
