Tom Braatz, Green Bay Packers vice president, offered the club's coaching position to Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Lindy Infante on Tuesday and said he wanted a reply by today. "There are no major hurdles left. It's a matter of timing at this point," Braatz said Tuesday as the Packers' search for a new coach dragged into its third week. Infante is in Honolulu, Hawaii, where the Browns' staff will coach the American Football Conference in Sunday's Pro Bowl.

Lindy Infante was the toast of Green Bay two years ago when he led the Packers to a 10-6 record--their best in 17 years--and was voted the NFL's coach of the year. But two losing seasons followed and Sunday the team fired Infante, who had a 24-40 record in four years. The entire coaching staff also was let go. "The biggest thing is the fact the team could not win the games," General Manager Ron Wolf said during a news conference. "That's what I saw, an inability to win."

Lindy Infante is the first Green Bay Packer coach since Vince Lombardi 30 years ago to be honored by the Associated Press as NFL coach of the year, but there the comparison ends, he says. Infante, who guided the Packers to a 10-6 finish and within a victory of the playoffs, said: "There will never be another Vince Lombardi. I'm just honored to be sitting in the seat he sat in and coaching in the city he coached in and coaching the team he made so famous."

He watched calmly from the sidelines as his team struggled to become a contender, enduring four one-point wins, two agonizing instant replay reviews and countless comebacks. And when his Green Bay Packers had done all they could--finishing 10-6 for their best record since 1972--he watched on TV as Minnesota beat Cincinnati 29-21 to oust his team from the playoffs in the final minutes of the regular season. Through it all, Lindy Infante was the same--calm, methodical, confident and team-oriented.

It has been 69 years since the Indian Packing Company offered up some jerseys for the local team here, and it has been quite awhile since someone scrawled horns on the sides of helmets. The Rams and the Green Bay Packers, teams with storied traditions, meet for the 60th time in today's opener at Lambeau Field. It seems funny that both teams should still be struggling to put the pieces together. You may have noticed that tradition isn't buying much these days.

The NFL season is only two weeks old and the Indianapolis Colts have two losses and no offensive touchdowns. In two weeks, Indianapolis has given up 10 sacks and scored 16 points. The only touchdown was scored by linebacker Elijah Alexander when he intercepted a pass by Dan Marino and returned it for a score in the season opener. "There were opportunities out there for us. We just didn't cash them in," Coach Lindy Infante said. "Offensively . . . you've got to get all 11 guys working together."
