Chucky's Chalk Talk

By RICK STROUD, Times Staff Writer

published November 24, 2002

On Packers running back Ahman Green:

"He's a great back. He's not had the yardage in the last game or so he's accustomed to having. But he's a home run hitter. He can go around the bases on you on one swing of the bat. He's a coast-to-coast type of back."

On the Packers' underrated defense:

"Everybody is talking about their offense and rightfully so. But in the last two or three games, if you watch them play the Redskins, if you watch this team play the Dolphins ... I went to bed and it was 24-0. They're playing very good on defense. The return of (defensive end) Vonnie Holliday is only going to help them. This is a very good team that was on the brink of going to the Super Bowl last year and is 8-2 this year. So it'll be a real test for us and we're looking forward to the challenge."

On dealing with quarterback Brett Favre:

"Well, you have to deal with his greatness. He's got brilliant talent. But you also have to deal with the scheme, and he's got some real good people around him. This is a dangerous back, Ahman Green is exceptional. And they've got more speed at wide receiver than they've ever had with the addition of Terry Glenn, the emergence of Donald Driver ... they have four receivers who can really run."

On the Warren Sapp and Brett Favre rivalry:

"I respect it. Any time you have two of the marquee players at their positions going head to head it's very exciting. I've admired the competition from miles away. Sapp has that going with a lot of guys, too. Every week it seems like he's revving up against somebody. But this is special. I think it's very important to both players and both teams."
