Greene Says Boos in Charlotte Will Fire Him Up


Scott Fowler Knight-Ridder Newspapers, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


Two tackles. One broken toe. No sacks.

Those are Kevin Greene's totals for San Francisco as he enters Monday night's game as a reserve against his former Carolina Panthers teammates.

They are not numbers to be proud of, or numbers that would normally inspire much talk about their author. But this is Greene - who led the Panthers and the NFL last season in sacks (14.5) and clenched-fist celebrations (hundreds). So on Wednesday, the man who refused to report to Panthers training camp under a valid contract, was released, and joined San Francisco a month ago was the main topic of conversation once again.

You can't move the guy. He's strong. He's physical. And he hates the 49 ... oh no, he doesn't. That's just what he told me last year." Said cornerback Eric Davis, who in 1996 made the mirror image of Gre ene's cross-country leap: "Kevin will be himself. Very emotional. He will play hard. But the problem for them is finding a guy they want to take off the field. They have a talented group. Which one of those big guys are you going to upset and say, `You've got to sit down'?" San Francisco coach Steve Mariucci is treading very lightly on that issue this week. His regular front four of Roy Barker, Bryant Young, Dana Stubblefield and Chris Doleman leads the NFL's No. …
