    Chad Greenway was excited about his chance to play in an NFL game last week, but he’s more excited that he gets to play in another...

    We have alot of number 1 picks on our defense, and it's starting to be one of the NFL's best. Chad with his speed and instincts will be a major contributer this season.

    MANKATO, Minn. — He waited and waited and waited.
    Now, Chad Greenway can allow himself a smile. Sort of...

    I think if he can stay healthy(fingers crossed), he has the potentail to become like an Urlacher. He definitly has the right attitude, and he seems really pumped about being out there. This team can really use a big Rah RAh kind of guy.

    Instincts and speed, both unteachable. Chad is gonna make some big plays for us this year, and show the skills that made him a first rounder. I'm pretty stoked about the strides our pass defense has made, and Greenway is a big part of it.

    Not that its a big deal but speed is teachable. Running coaches who focus on two things to increase speed. stride length and pumping you arms (cause it causes you legs to go the same speed as you pumping your arms


    When I watched his game against Jets I think he's already up to speed

    Agreed, however, I'm not sure if you can teach "playing fast."
    As a Huskers fan, I concur that you can teach athletes to lower their 40 times, Nebraska has been doing that for decades.
    I am tremendously impressed that Greenway plays fast...in fact, I have watched the Jets game three times now and, call me crazy, but, he and Winfield seem to be a step ahead in diagnosing and reacting.
    Call it scheme, I call it ability.
    I am trying not to get ahead of myself with excitement, because I know he's young and he will make mistakes, but I have a feeling this kid is gonna be our best linebacker in many, many years.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    o okay. Yeah I can agree with that. I dont disagree with anything you said. I just thought you meant running speed. I also call it ability. I also can see him becoming greatness and see a breakout year for him this year
