Weeeee!!

We are losing the time of possession and the offense has basically been silent for much of the game.

They have made mental and communication mistakes in the secondary.. but other than that, they have been handed a bad hand in support again from the offense in terms of keeping them off the field.

So no.. it hasn't been worthy to can anyone.

Why Dom Capers should be fired:

-Putting linebackers on WRs consistently. It never works. Because they're linebackers on wide receivers.
-3 man rush. A lot of us like to complain about this one. Because it never works.
-Bush on starting WRs. This could be blamed on Ted Thompson for not providing good CBs perhaps, but no coach in their right mind puts Bush out there against starting wide receivers.
-Playing CBs 5-7 yards off consistently. This is the NFL. Those are automatic receptions. And they are against us every time.
-No halftime adjustments. If what we're doing works in the first half, that's good because we're not changing anything. If we're failing in the first half, that's not good because we're not changing anything.
-Bad tackling. We get great contain, but the tackling is bad. It's pretty much always been bad.
(EDIT)
- GB was the LAST RANKED defense last year.
- GB was LAST in sack% last year. UNACCEPTABLE

These are just a few reasons I can name off the top of my head.

Dom Capers helped us get to the Superbowl and we won it all, and that's great. Since then, and nobody can deny this, the defense has been terrible. We give up points, we give up yards. We get occasional turnovers, but it's inconsistent at best.

This is a very talented roster. There's no reason for it to be playing as badly as it has the last couple years. Woodson, Cm3, Tramon, Raji, Pickett,etc.

I am now 100% on the "Fire Dom Capers" bandwagon. I was almost on it last year but Capers has shown nothing has changed. That's a recipe for failure and as a fan of this team, I won't stand for it. Capers seems out of touch, up in his booth, falling asleep, and not utilizing this talented defensive group.

Some might argue "Dude, it was one game." This season it was. but this has been happening since we won the Superbowl. It seemed like an anomaly last year, but...no, it's a trend. I don't know or care what the reason is, but I'm not going to stand for it. I love the team and think they're too good for this.

Fire Dom Capers.

If there was a rank #33 for the worst defense, we will catch it this year.

Capers' unit is playing for his job this year, no question.

That said, I don't think they cost us this game. Did they suck? Yes, but they did get off the field when it mattered.

I'm not yet ready to hit the panic button on the pass d just yet. With DJ, Perry, and a new safety in the mix, it's not earth shattering that there were communication errors like we saw. The pass rush showed minor glimpses of hope as well. The run D, however, I have no clue what to say about that. It was putrid.

Seems like I heard in the past that Dom has the reputation of turning defenses around initially only to have his defenses slide into mediocrity or worse in the following years.
I doubt he will be fired during the season but I also doubt this defense will get better under him.

We haven't been the same since Cullen Jenkins left, also I think when you lose a super star like Nick Collins your going to have to allow some time for one of the younger safeties to learn the ropes and become confident. I really like Burnett and Id like to see more of mcMillian, also it seemed Woody needed some time to grow into a safety.

My issue with firing capers is how long do you think it will take to recover and learn the new defense, do we revert back to a 4-3 or start a tampa-2 defense? those will take at least a year to grasp not to mention finding the players to fit the scheme. I do think he needs to get some more creativity going though, we need to find something original like when we introduced the psycho package, offensive co-ordinators are getting used to the way we use woody as an anything player.

That's nice and all that you have such a great idea to fire Capers but how exactly does that make the team better this year?

What you said about the youth I think is the key point. I know this can be said of any team, but especially with the packers with a rookie converted lineman now responsible for coverage, along with a 2nd year lb, in addition to a lot of youth up front with Daniels and Worthy in the rotation it's not surprising that this unit isn't there yet.

I think if one looks at the defensive collapse and Burnett being on the field.. they are almost consistent... not blaming it on Burnett mind you.. but he has been on the field almost throughout the collapse filled with communication lapses. Coincidence?

He went down in 2010 and that defense improved. Think

The run D started out ok but then gave up some big play. They were good about 80% of the time
