Dom Capers

Dom Will Be Gone

What has been a rumor for weeks will soon become a fact – defensive coordinator Dom Capers will not return for a 10th season with the Green Bay Packers. According to a source whose information has always been reliable in the past, an official announcement is expected to be made in the next few days.

Potential Replacements For Dom

Packers’ defensive coordinator Dom Capers has more lives than a cat, but this may finally be the year when his seven-season run of incompetency comes to an end. If, and it’s still a big if, a change is made, here are some possible replacements (today’s focus is on veteran coaches; I’ll look at up-and-comers next

Defending The Indefensible

Mike McCarthy was a guest on ESPN Milwaukee’s Wilde and Tausch Show last week, and much to the credit of the hosts, he was asked why he’s stuck with beleaguered defensive coordinator Dom Capers for so long. Here was his answer: “Well, going back to the Mason Crosby comment, and obviously applying that to the

Packers Dom In By Defense

Let’s be clear, the highly drafted young corners from two years ago played poorly all season and the inside linebackers still aren’t good enough. That’s on the front office. But for the third time in eight years, a Dom Capers defense didn’t even compete in the playoffs. If Sunday’s embarrassment against the Falcons in the

Walk-Off Win For Packers

The silly narrative that Aaron Rodgers isn’t a clutch player took a hit on Sunday in Chicago when the two-time MVP and future Hall of Famer made yet another throw for the ages. And unlike so many other times in his storied career, on this day he didn’t leave enough time on the clock for

4-3 Would Scheme To Make Sense

If the Packers finally move on from defensive coordinator for life Dom Capers after the season, let’s hope they move on from the 3-4 scheme as well. It would only make sense considering general manager Ted Thompson has been drafting mostly 4-3 defensive linemen and outside linebackers for the past six years. Since 2010, Thompson has selected 11 defensive linemen

Season On The Brink

Welcome to how the other half lives. After 7 consecutive winning seasons and 7 consecutive trips to the playoffs, the Packers are now wallowing around with the Chargers, Jets and Rams of the NFL. That’s what happens when you drop 4 straight games, including Sunday’s 42-24 embarrassment to the Redskins. While the Packers are still mathematically alive for the postseason, they’ll need the

Nightmare In Nashville

There was a time when the Green Bay Packers, following a tough loss, would’ve punished a middling team like the Tennessee Titans. But that was quite a while ago. Sunday, the Titans punished the middling Packers after a tough loss of their own. The nightmare in Nashville dropped Green Bay to 4-5. The good news is

Defense Flexes Its Muscle

On a night when Aaron Rodgers had a passer rating of just 65.0 and the offense sputtered once again, Dom Capers’ defense did something it’s rarely done since 2010 – it dominated an opponent for 60 minutes. And that’s why the Packers came away from Lambeau Field with a hard-fought victory over the Giants. Playing
