|Outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene cared about his players, often referring to them as "my kids."|
So Greene cued up play after play.
He showed Zombo in perfect position when dropping in coverage to defend the hook-curl area in the middle of the field.
He showed Zombo knocking one of the Vikings' guards back into the fullback, which freed up inside linebacker A.J. Hawk to tackle Adrian Peterson for a short gain.
He showed Zombo, all 6-foot-3 and 254 pounds of him, bull-rushing Vikings' left tackle Bryant McKinnie (6-8, 335) straight back into [Brett] Favre, who had to throw off balance.
"Who's kicking who's (butt)?" Greene asks rhetorically. "Seriously, straight up. He's changing the line of scrimmage on a guy who weighs 350 pounds and (went to the) Pro Bowl. This is David and Goliath. It's Zombo kicking a big man's (butt), if you ever want to see what a (butt) kicking looks like. McKinnie's job is to hit him in the lips and blow him off the ball, move him off the line of scrimmage. Not the other way around. Whose feet are going back? McKinnie's."
With each highlight Greene showed, the former star outside linebacker, who is in his second season on the Packers' coaching staff, became more excited.
At various points, he'd just yell, "Zombo!"
