Breno Giacomini doesn't play on defense, nor does he have anything to do Dom Capers. However, he was ranked 69th, lower than all the Packers Tackle's with 25% of snaps played.
thanks Post received 1 applause.

Ah, so you're trying (again) to get us to stay on topic, are you, Kevin?

Good luck on that. [grin1]

p.s. had to give Finland an applause, even if it were offtopic, for finding a way to bring a Packer OL reject into the conversation. [grin1]

Cards hired a new DC, all HC gigs are filled up, he doesn't have much of a choice.


Yeah, I just saw that this morning. Horton definitely wasn't happy with what went down in Arizona. Well, Horton is obviously going to be an assistant coach again next season, and very likely a defensive coordinator. This presents a perfect opportunity for the Packers to make a move. As I said, just like the Packers and big time free agents, this isn't going to happen, unfortunately. If there's one guy that would require very little transition in terms of scheme, and bring in a fresh up-and-coming mind, this would be the hire. Sometimes being too loyal can be a bad thing, and can ultimately hurt a franchise. I'm not saying this is one of those circumstances, but there's really no reason to believe Horton couldn't do at least as good of a job as Capers, and in the opinion of many, he would likely do a lot better, especially in terms of adjustments.

Oh well, it is what it is. At least Capers defense can beat up on bottom tiered teams.

Say we hire Horton, and he works wonders with out defense, how many of you think we get a 2nd year with Horton?

my guess is we don't.

If we were able to win a Super Bowl out of the deal, would it really matter? Or does the prospect of Dom Capers for another three years really sound that much better? Perhaps after another couple of horrible defenses playoff collapses?

I understand Dom could use more talent. It makes the job of any coordinator easier with a ton of talent. However, it'd be nice to have someone who could maximize the current talent the Packers have on a consistent level. The Packers do have a lot of talent on defense, and it's hard to imagine other coordinators out there couldn't get more out of it. Dom is and can be a decent coach. Perhaps even really good with a ton of talent. It's just tough for me to ever be that satisfied with "good" or "decent," but perhaps I'm just too impatient. There's probably a reason I don't coach in the NFL. =/

Ray Horton is available.


Perhaps GB has superior talent to AZ. But even at that the numbers for the two teams in 2012 were not that much different.

passing GB 11th 218.2 avg AZ 5th 200.8 avg
rushing GB 17th 118.5 avg AZ 28th 137.0 avg
total GB 11th 336.8 avg AZ 12th 337.8 avg
points GB 11th 336 AZ 17th 357
sacks GB 4th 47 AZ 11th 38
Ints GB 8th 18 AZ 2nd 22
FF GB 31st 8 AZ 20th 13

2011 may be a lot better for Horton I don't know and won't take the time to check it out.


If GB is going to make a change I would like to see it be someone who clearly is a better DC. Or a young guy on the way up who looks to be a real find.
