Defense Rests In Mediocrity

Dom Capers and the majority of his staff have been in Green Bay since 2009, and aside from late in the 2010 season, the team’s defensive play has ranged from awful to slightly above average.

Bold Predictions For 2015

The beauty of making bold predictions is that very few people remember them in 6 months. How do you think Mel Kiper Jr. has kept his job at ESPN for 30 years? So here goes nothing: -Two years after not picking off a single pass, Green Bay’s safeties will lead the NFC in interceptions. Ha
