So young. His last games were really just before I started watching football, so I mostly know him as a coach.

And shouting at Clay Matthews during the Superbowl that "it's time"

Third all-time in QB sacks.  Guy was a beast and a great Ram.  R.I.P.

I remember him from the '96 Panthers mostly, that was around when I was really starting to get into football to the level I am now. I don't remember how but my BFF got her hands on a Kevin Greene jersey when someone was trying to get her a Joe Greene jersey, but still loved it. (She's a MASSIVE Steeler fan.)

RIP Kev, you were awesome to watch.

I hope it's not CTE. He was a great player.

This has been one hell of a year for athlete deaths.

I remember how he was considered a sidekick to Greg Lloyd in Pittsburgh, when it turned out he was the better player. I think Cowher liked Lloyd more.

And 58 is way, way too young.

"High motor" white guys don't tend to make it to 60 for some reason.

One of my favorite players when he was with the Steelers. May he RIP.

RIP. I loved that dude, even before he came to the Packers. One of my favorite memories came when the Packers played Carolina in the middle of a mediocre season for both teams. He trashed his man and came free at Favre and Brett somehow juked him out of his shoes. While they were supposed to be huddling up for the next play, Favre ran over to the Panthers players and gave him a huge hug. When Greene was a Packers coach he told a story on local radio about the '96 NFC championship game, where he regretted not wearing sleeves because he hit Favre and forced the fumble, but couldn't feel his arms well enough to pick up the football. I hope it wasn't anything preventable. He was one of the best, and one of the best characters in the game.

Like Reggie White.  White is in his name, so you know he didn't have a chance.

Gonna have to watch McAfee and Hawk talk about this. They always seem to know what happened to a player.

That is not what I remember at all.  I remember Greene as a one-dimensional pass-rusher who was a liability in Cowher's scheme, which emphasized versatility.  Cowher wanted more Hardy Nickersons, fewer LT-lites.

I'm not saying you're wrong and I'm right, it's just interesting how different perspectives can be.
