A great piece on Kevin Greene

Dunno if you saw this but it's gold. I wasn't aware it was his first year as a coach, and I hope we'll enjoy his work for years to come. He really helped Clay Matthews become The Claymaker.

Defensive Player of the Year: Woodson vs Revis

+

I take a look at Charles Woodson and Darrelle Revis this season. I analyze their counting stats, coverage, run defense and ability to rush the quarterback.

Charles Woodson Wins DPOY

It might not make up for the heartbreaker in Arizona, but it's well deserved. Woodson gathered 28 first place votes out of 50 (twice as many as runner-up Darrelle Revis), making him the first Packer to win the award since Reggie White. Woodson's defensive stats in 2009: 74 tackles, 2 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, 18 passes defended, 9 interceptions, and 3 return touchdowns. His role in turning Green Bay into a top-5 ranked defense was critical, and his season was one we won't forget. Congratulations, Charles. Thanks for making 2009 so memorable, and here's to continuing the dominance in 2010 and beyond.

We've been waiting for months to see if Chuck would get the recognition he deserves, and today it finally became official. Woodson got 28 of the 50 votes, ahead of Darrelle Revis who got 14. Here's to Chuck!

Doug Farrar of football outsiders: Arizona should be congratulated for pulling the game out, but Scott Green’s crew was truly abysmal today.

Let me tell you something – that dude is scary. We have a great defense, and we were up on him and ready to pounce, and he found ways to tear us apart. I don’t ever want to face him again in my life. I am dead serious. I’ll face Drew Brees any day of the week before I face him again.

I'd like to send a big Happy Birthday shout out to Bart Starr. The legendary Packers quarterback turned 76 today. Many happy returns, Mr. Starr.
