I honestly want to get rid of Capers and get more vets on defense. Our team will be better with those 2 components. When we had players like Woodson and Colins our defense was rolling. We need some veteran presence in the secondary. Tramon Williams and Burnett is our only ones and I don't think they're the greatest leaders in the world. We need a defensive scheme that take away what a team does best and stick with something. Not get away from anything.

Get rid of Hawk and Tramon. I love these guys.. I liked what they did for this organization. They both helped us win a superbowl, but sometimes you just need sacrifice some people and bring in some fresh talent. I would also really encourage we get rid of Hawk. Now the guy is an iron man, and like Tramon he is someone I wouldn't be disappointed in resigning. BUT I think it's time we make a change. We need a playmaker in the middle of the field. Something a great defense needs. Look at guys like Luke Kuechly, Patrick Willis, Bobby Wagner, hell when Jon Beason came to the Giants this year it made their defense 10 times better. Hawk isn't getting it done.

I say we give Raji one last chance with a Franchise tag.

Move Hyde to Saftey and draft a Saftey with a high draft pick or pick up a vet Safety in FA

Draft a Middle Linebacker with a high draft pick or sign a vet in FA to sure up the Middle Linebacking core with Brad Jones, Jamari Lattimore, and Sam Barrington

And last but not least Draft a backup Passrushing OLB with a fairly high pick or (again..) pick one up in FA. This defense will be back to form with all these pieces.

Perry and Matthews have been missing time. So this can move Neal back to the D-Line and actually get someone that can come in for a game or 2 and be effective, plus it gives some rotation with Perry/Matthews here and there.


I'm sorry but I think Ted needs to bring in a Veteran in at one of these positions. I get the draft first mentality, but we need a reliable guy either in the middle of the field or the backend of the field that get these guys in position and have the defense rally behind them.


So...you want to get rid of Capers and get more veteran players. You then reference Collins and Woodson (who were both veterans playing for Capers when they were at their best). Then you claim we should get rid of Hawk (who is a veteran) for fresh talent. WHAT?!

Apparently you guys missed that whiff Hawk had on a sure sack on 3rd down that would have forced a punt instead of leading to a touchdown. Kind of sums up his whole career in GB. I'm all for improving the play at inside linebacker, but we never seem to be able to draft that position very well. Before Hawk it was Barnett never making the big plays.

Falcons got some vets and look where they are. Ted hasn't hit on all of them no, but he is a good GM and I see no reason to let him go.

I get what you're saying.. But they made our defense run. Since they left Dom has lost it. And what has happened these past 3 years on our defense, I think it's pretty evident what needs to happen. We need a change at defensive coordinator. A fresh mind. Simple as that. I mean what do you want? We don't have a Woodson or Colins, and Capers hasn't put together a good enough scheme to win without them.

Like you said Ted Thompson has miss on some (but all GM have swung and missed badly).


The only reasons I see to let Ted Thompson go (vs. other GMs out there) is

1) Ted Thompson hired the "best man" for the job, instead of the "best coach" for the job. Would of been interesting to see what Sean Payton would of been able to do with all these weapons.

Then again, Sean Payton has a couple of scandal with the Saints including bountygate and another one envovling him stealing pain meds and invovled with the cover-up which the NFL and Saints were able to sweep under the rug for the most part.



2) Ted Thompson (nor the rest of the Packers) haven't gotten anyone to stop all these injuries.

Then again, I don't know what they could do to stop them... but other teams seem to have less most years... so there is something different? ... right? wrong?

I just think we need a playmaker in the middle of our defense. To me a great defense needs that. Imagine our defense with a Luke Kuechly at the helm. Obviously we're not gonna just pick a Kuechly up off the street, but we need to make a change somehow.

We can play with Hawk, but it's just gonna be the same play over and over again from that part of the defense. Average. I want a guy who can help us take the ball away from the opposing team, not just make sure tackles once in a while. I need to give him credit earlier this season the guy played well, but down the stretch now he just isn't getting it done. No one is on our defense now.

Idk I just think we need a spark of some kind from the Middle Linebacker position next year, and for as good as Hawk has been with us I think we need to move on.

I don't agree with "moving on" from a player just for the sake of doing it. If someone better steps up and takes their job then yeah that's great move on but getting rid of someone just for the sake of trying someone new is how you end up with a Derek Frost.

Teams do that all the time. I mean do we just keep those guys and hope for the best? Sometimes change is good. I just think we need a bolt on the defense. Maybe bringing in other guys will spark that bolt. It doesn't hurt when you got nothing to lose. Whether it be a change at LB or not, I don't see how it would hurt if we tried something like this if we aren't having success at all on a certain part of the team.

Better than straight getting rid of them and hoping for the best. It may have been done successfully before but that doesn't mean it's good business to pre replace someone when you don't have their replacement yet. Unless they are highly over paid it makes no sense to just drop a starter and go with some random unknown replacement. You can bring in a "replacement" player without cutting the starter. If he wins the job then good if not then good thing you didn't cut the starter.
