I know fans always want their team to be more and more agressive in their play calling, even when it's not the right thing to do (and this very well might be one of those times). But at times it seems like he gets too conservative with the play calling. And I know there very well is a time and place for that.

BUT with Burnett and Hayward out, and the healthy Safeties making some mistakes and the starting CBs giving up some huge plays to the #1 WRs. I'm thinking the Packers should be trying to take pressure off the DBs and more pressure on front 7 to get it done. By being a little more agressive with them.

Yes being a little more agressive with them will ask the DBs to play a little more man on man and get more envovled in the run stopping but that might be their strengths with covering over a longer time span in zones.


I think Shields / McMillian are better in man coverage than zone coverage. Seems like when Williams thinks he has time to look at the QB, he looks and loses track of the WR, less time would hopefully help that.

I think I'd like to see more of Matthews, Perry and Neal all at LB at the same time.

NO, Capers has been wasting the Packers talent on D his whole tenure here with the exception of 2010.

You may very well get your wish, Beast. Capers devised a specialized defensive scheme against the Niners to contain the running of Kaepernick. He then used something fairly similar against the Redskins, expecting Griffin to have more running ability than he displayed.

Against the Bengals, we will face a more conventional QB and offense. Therefore, I expect Capers to revert to his kind of normal, which will include a lot of creative/aggressive blitzing.

Maybe, but he'll want to stuff the run too.

I agree' Id rather have capers mixing and dialing it up - then playing conservative which he seems to do. Not as much as the last guy bob sanders - whom was so predictable. But see so many 3 man rushes which basically lets them get a 1st or lets the QB run.

Dom is still decent IMO not as bad as some people make him out to be. Like I said we could have the last guy ...

I wish Capers did not have to get creative..It'd be nice if the "D" Line could generate a pass rush itself....

I think there is a time and place to get conservative, like in the 2011 season he was still running an agressive scheme and Packers defense got lit up. But with the injuries/weakness of these DBs, I think it MIGHT be better for them to cover more man on man but hopefully shorter time peiord than they would have to in zone.

I think Capers has also had to work with lack of talent at times as well... like lack of pass rushers, and now lack of top DB guys. But it's best when you call a game around the talent you have, and I feel like Capers keeps making changes a year behind.

I think after the 2011 season, he got less aggressive and more conservative but should of done that during the 2011 season and every year since he's been behind making changes.

It was rumored, a couple years ago that Neal might split time at OLB and they waited until this year to do it (I'm guessing because they wanted to make sure they had enough hogs in the trenches, but in the 3-4 OLB is very important, could of used another pass rusher there before Perry).

Capers was quite aggressive this last game. Blitzing Tramon and others.

Lets see...Capers D didn't give up a 54 yd fumble return...or turn the ball over on the 2 yard line. Though I suppose you could ding them for not stopping Cincy from gaining 2 yards...

Capers' unit really stepped up. They forced FOUR turnovers in successive drives, one of which was returned for a TD. They played very well against a good team.

Until Clay went out.

I also wouldn't blame Capers on that loss. If the offense would have done it's job, noone would even talk about the defense. What really pissed me off were the 3 15yds penalties for undisciplined behaviour. The Perry call was questionable, but the other 2 were unexcusable.

Fluke play after fluke play after fluke play. Same old story with this team.

Look at the Seattle game last year.
