Maybe it's overreaction but I was one foot in last year with the firing of Dom Capers. Yeah, it is easier to coach from the couch but what the hell did the 49ers offense do??? In order...
- Kaepernick drop back, run.
- Kaepernick drop back, pass to Crabtree.

How are adjustments not made? There were more plays where there was not a spy on Kaepernick and guess what the guy did when this was apparent?

When Capers' defense is predictable from your own couch, there is a problem. Yes, the Packers had injuries throughout the season and have a lot of young (talented) players but the job of Capers is to adjust his scheme to what he can do with these players. What happened against the 49ers was 1. predictable and 2. embarrassing.

Done with Capers.

Don't get me wrong - I am also on the fence about keeping Capers and/or position coaches.

So, according to McCarthy: we did not execute. On D, we tried different things, but none of them worked because of bad execution. To add, says they did not do on Offense what they wanted.

This has become a broken record. I'm hoping McCarthy takes this as a kick in the balls and realizes he better scheme up improved personnel packages and schemes this off-season. I do not know how many times our offense has not been able to do what it wanted. And something needs to be done to ensure execution of Defense - I'm not sure simply adding players is going to fix that part of the equation.


Exactly...if you're not executing what you want then f'n fix it. At the end of the season it's clear edge play killed this team...an unwillingness or inability of the secondary to tackle AP, no ability/discipline to contain the edge, brad jones can't get off the block of an f'n wr...

I get McCarthy likes big plays. I get Aaron likes to go deep.

But how about having some bunch formations? How about a more short and intermediate passing attack? I like the different packages and formations that they have incorporated to take advantage of Cobb. But it'd be awful nice to have plays where our WRs / Finley is running free because of another receiver picked off a DB.

Jennings showed he still had something left, Finley is a walking mismatch, and Cobb emerged in the slot. How about using all 3 of those players in bunch formation so they all have a chance to utilize the middle of the field while not being pressed?

I really hope we get some more creative packages this off-season. Especially if Jennings and Finley come back.

Sometimes I wonder if having all of the Packers WRs healthy can almost be overwhelming at times to the coaching staff. It's got to be difficult to find ways to fully utilize the talents of all the players, especially if the offensive snaps have been limited. I could see it being possible to get into a rut and fail to fully utilize the talent that is available.

Packers' OT is raising some good points right now. If you want Capers fired then...

1) Who do you replace Capers with?
2) the roster is currently built for a 3-4 and even for a 3-4 they are dangerously thin at the line, and deep with servicable talent at lb.

So who is the better 3-4 coach out there, and do you consider a personnel and scheme overhaul in the offseason?

I'm not saying don't fire capers, but it's not as easy as, get rid of him and it's an easy clean upgrade

Of course it's not easy. Firing a coach doesn't instantly make a team better in anyway. I feel as if that's rhetorical. It's a risk vs. reward approach. It's not up for us fans to decide who to replace Capers with. That's up to the guys getting paid to do so and who have a detailed knowledge of whats out there. If they truly feel it would absolutely not be possible to upgrade from Capers, then yeah, I guess you ride him out for one more season and see what happens. As I said earlier though, I find it hard to believe that there is not a single coach out there that couldn't at least coach close to Capers level. He could, perhaps, be even better. That's always the risk an organization takes when making a new hire, just like the Packers did when hiring Mike McCarthy. When intelligent decisions are made though, it can often work out nicely.

And I agree with what you're saying, and I'm not saying I'm not for firing Capers...It's just that it's the it's the easy knee jerk solution, but then what's the exit strategy? We're seeing with the eagles who swung and missed with 3 hc candidates. The debate is the same with romo, who else do you draft or bring in at this point?

Again, maybe there is someone else out there, quite frankly, as you alluded to, I have better things to do than to scout dc candidates lying in the weeds, I'm just saying we cant assume (necessarily) the grass is greener even if our grass may be a little brown.

heh, yeah, that's where I'm at. Definitely better ways to spend ones time. I"m just sticking with my opinion that I would be very surprised if there wasn't someone out there that couldn't do a similar job as Capers. Is there really not a single other coach that could hold an opposing team to under 500 yards and 40 points in the divisional round of the playoffs with the Packers talent? Maybe not, but that would be surprising to me.

I'm in favor of a switch at defensive coordinator. Our defense needs a more aggressive philosophy. All the great defenses in the league have a swagger about them as if they won't take shit from anybody, such as the Seahawks, 9ers, Steelers. Our defense continues to get pushed around and seems too content on going for the strip instead of laying the wood on a player. I don't care how talented offensive players are, if the defense continues to hit them everytime they get the ball it will affect them. This mentality has to be taught to a team from the start of OTA's. Dom Capers is not the coach who will do that.

This seems more personnel related than coaching. If you're small, weak, and can't disengage from blocks, you're done right there.
