The team will be ready for the 3-4. Will they be a top 5 D. No, but I expect them to be in the top 10 which is good.

The team may never make it to #1, but they don't need to. The offense is able to score points, so the Defense can afford to be a little lower ranked. Just not as low as this last year.

My thoughts are:

1. With all due respect to all of y'all, Dom Capers and Co. know defense better than anyone who posts on these boards.

2. Assuming Thompson and McCarthy aren't suffering from severe brain damage, they know they don't have 2-3 years to turn things around. This wasn't some long-term project they started, and I think the money being handed out and the calibre of coaches that money's going to indicate a commitment to turning things around quickly.

3. Personnel will be brought in to help w/ the transition - maybe not some household name, but I'm positive we'll be seeing some new faces.

4. The defense will rebound as a result and we'll be in the top 10.

You hurt my little ole feelings now.. Laughing

Nice post... it will be interesting to see how we attack FA this season.

We spent some pretty good coin in Capers.. and I am sure Trgovac was offered more than the minimum for a DC... so we probably invested a good chunk there.

Will Ted keep the checkbook smokin' in the free agency period?

Probably not like some would wish, but it shall be interesting to me.

Aw, I'm not trying to hurt anyone's feelings - I get that it's a discussion board and people tend to... discuss things, and I'm not trying to say people don't know their football, because it's obvious that you folks really do. I'm just poking a little fun, because there's so much trepidation amongst the fans about how we don't have the players, while the coaches seem to disagree. I'm hoping the coaches know better than we do, needless to say.

As for Ted, I'm going on the assumption that he likes his job and would like to keep it. If I'm right about that and if he's not a complete idiot, he'll spend some money and bring in some useful pieces. Will they be huge names? Probably not, if they don't fit into what McCarthy and Capers are planning. But I'm betting he'll spend some cash.

Well, that would be... interesting. I guess then I'd ask what the hell DH is doing posting on a Packers' Fan board instead of getting ready for the Superbowl, and I'd want to ask you what being undead is like. pottytrain1n2:

No worries, I got that - I was more clarifying, since I've dropped the old "our coaches know the game better than you lot" argument a number of times, and I thought it wouldn't hurt to make sure people knew that I didn't mean "You people don't know football at all" or something.

The NFL is built for teams that struggled in one year to be a good team in the next. Miami and Atlanta are clear examples of this and the Packers shouldn't make excuses if the defense isn't good.

People need to remember that Green Bay's offense is so good that even if the defenses can rank say 17th in yardage and 15th in points that it's going to more than likely be a good year.

ya true - but I have a feeling it will be Much better then last year - I thinking in teh top 10.
As long as we spend our draft picks with some decent D players and pick up 1-2 in the FA.

And ya I agree our O is top notch - more pass protection for rogers and a blocker for grant and we should be set.
