the New York Jets last Sunday in a game that ultimately meant little to both non-playoff contending teams JK Scott Jersey , the glimpse of a familiar face was caught on the MetLife Stadium sidelines between plays: former Green Bay outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene.After a three-year hiatus from the NFL, Greene returned to the league in a similar role coaching the outside ‘backers for the Jets in 2017 and remains on a defensive staff that, like Green Bay’s, may be on its way out in less than a week. In the midst of what has been a disappointing season from the Packers’ outside linebacking crew in generating pressure, seeing Greene on the sidelines evoked a sense of “what-if.” What if Greene had not surprisingly left Green Bay following the 2013 season, giving way to Winston Moss? Would the Packers’ defense be in a better shape now had there been continuity for the OLB unit, perhaps the most vital position in the 3-4 system?With the stability of Dom Capers as Defensive Coordinator spanning a wide range of years before and after Greene’s departure, that answer may not be as clear-cut as initially thought. Here are comparisons based on two important stats: sacks and quarterback hits.Kevin Greene (2009-2013)Greene oversaw a Packer linebacker corps that included a young Clay Matthews, who reached four Pro Bowls in a five-year stretch, but also a large number of undrafted free agents. Green Bay won a Super Bowl during the 2010 season, boasted a 15-1 record in 2011, and only tallied less than 10 wins once in that span. While some of those feats, as well as a top offense, could mask some of the Packers’ deficiencies on defense Brett Favre Color Rush Jersey , Green Bay’s outside linebackers were not as dangerous during Greene’s tenure as one might think. The Packers, more or less, had a classic “bend-but-don’t-break” defense during Greene’s years in Green Bay, but they really lacked a dynamic pass rusher opposite Matthews. Mike Neal’s five sacks in 2013 were the most for an edge rusher in that timeframe, with Frank Zombo, Dezman Moses, and Brad Jones a close second at four sacks apiece. In fact, a monumental reason why the Super Bowl champion Packers were able to become what they were in 2010 was due to the pass rush from other positions in Capers’ scheme. Cullen Jenkins brought seven sacks from the five-technique, while B.J. Raji added 6.5 sacks from the nose and Zombo notched his four as a rotational player on the other end from Matthews, who tallied 13.5. As seen below from Pro Football Reference, the Packers recorded Greene-era highs of 89 quarterback hits and 47 sacks during the 2010 season despite just 37 hits and 21.5 sacks from the outside linebackers.

The 2011 season was abysmal in that the entire defense registered only 29 total sacks and 70 total hits, with just 11 sacks and 42 hits coming from the outside linebackers. Really astounding was Greene’s last season in 2013 when the Packer defense was relatively all-or-nothing when rushing the passer.
