I changed the topic of this thread because it has not been confirmed and LombardiAve has removed the article.

The actual title they had was "Dom Capers out as Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator; Winston Moss in"

Quote below is the text of the article posted six minutes prior to this topic being created at PH.
LombardiAve said:

For the past 4.5 years, Dom Capers has been the Packers defensive mastermind — a position in which he excelled when he first came to Green Bay. However, his run in Green Bay came to an end today as the Packers fired the longtime NFL coach and replaced him as defensive coordinator with Winston Moss.


This is a separate article from the one posted last night saying Dom SHOULD be fired. This article stated he HAS been fired.

LombardiAve removed the article. Why?

Maybe they have inside info and weren't supposed to publish it until Packers make it public?
Maybe it's an attempt to get domain page hits?

I don't know, but it seems odd to say a man is fired, announce his replacement and then remove the article from the interweb.




How would you feel about Winston Moss taking over for Dom Capers?


Also, would that mean Kevin Greene takes over Inside Linebackers in addition to Outside Linebackers too?

My biggest issue is with the scheme. Like you said earlier, and I agree..would like to see a more physical type of scheme. To hell with this lining up 10 yards from the line of scrimmage bullshit.

Get physical with the WR's on the line of scrimmage/disrupt their timing.

Would Moss have a different scheme? I have no idea.

If they do make a switch I just want less of the 2 dlineman stuff. I can imagine there's a personnel problem in there but at this point what do you have to lose?

I would have no problem with Moss taking over for the rest of the season: The team needs a kick in the butt. This would be a start. He is familiar with the players and they with him. He would use some of the current scheme which the players know. He would add a few wrinkles of his won which the opposition would not be ready for. There is a big big book on Dom out there already.

Likewise I would like to see Greene step up and take over more responsibility. If they don't give it to him someone else will. I am a bit surprised he has not landed elsewhere after what he did in 2010.

Tbh I wouldn't be against Greene getting the DC job. What he would lack in schemes and play calling I think he would make up for in energy, the ability to connect with players and bring a environment of accountability. Like that missed tackle Brad Jones had on the screen pass on 3rd and 7 that broke GBs back. With Capers I get the feeling that Jones won't hear that much about it; if Greene were DC I feel that he would be up Jones ass all week.

This seems to be a false rumour. If Cpaers is fired I would like to see Greene as the DC, I don't think we can keep him as OLB coach much longer. He has really gotten the best from his players and he badly needs an upgrade.

Just like that? Mid-season? Because we got run on badly for two games in a row?

If we really had that big a problem with Capers' stinking it up, we would've fired him after the 2011 season. The only thing we're worse at now than then is in takeovers.

Next to that, when's the last time we just starting firing coaches mid-season? If we did that, Campen would be long gone by now.

I'm not saying anything about it being justified or not, but just that it's very, very unlikely.

As much as Dom Capers scheme sucks and never changes, look at the players as well. There are far too many missed opportunities by these players to place all the blame on just Capers.

The two long passes that the Eagles scored on were downright embarrassing. DeSean Jackson walked in backwards from 5 yards and Cooper rolled into the endzone...I mean, seriously. C'mon.
