The Green Bay Packers made a savvy addition to their coaching staff this offseason, signing former Las Vegas Raiders interim coach Rich Bisaccia.

Bisaccia will be tasked with fixing the Packers' special teams, a unit that ranked towards the bottom of the league last season and basically imploded in the playoffs against the San Francisco 49ers.

When discussing special teams with the media this Tuesday afternoon, Bisaccia created a new term for this phase of the game.

"It's not offense. Defense. It's We-fense. No other place on the field where ... off. and def. players are together," Bisaccia told reporters.

Bisaccia added that special teams starts with finding six core players for the punt coverage team.

In addition to talking about "We-fense" this Tuesday, Bisaccia revealed why he decided to join the Packers' coaching staff for the 2022 season.

“Why come here to the Green Bay Packers? Yeah, it’s the Green Bay Packers,” Bisaccia said, via ProFootballTalk. “For me personally, [it ’s] the opportunity to be at one of the marquee National Football League teams that sets a standard, that has an expectation to play to that standard every day, along with my excitement and my new energy after meeting and visiting with coach LaFleur. What he’s done here in a short period of time is unprecedented. He’s all football."

Bisaccia certainly won over a lot of fans with his press conference this Tuesday, that's for sure.
