Hall of Fame lineman Forrest Gregg dies at 85

he might have been a great player, but I will always remember him as a pure asswad as the Packers Head Coach ... he was their head man when Charles Martin spiked Jim McMahon head first into the turf ... and I am pretty sure I read that Gregg had no problem with the hit list towel Martin was wearing for that game

have fun in hell Forrest

He did have a way of ramping up the rivalry, for that I am thankful. He became a real hatred for him and the Pack while he was there. He wanted his guys to hurt the Bears and Ditka held the same motives. In my life, those were probably the best games going between the teams.
