As I just wrote an article on what the backup quarterback plan should be for next year, especially given it's near disastrous results, I thought to myself, 'What about the Green Bay Packers' defense? What about the coach for next year?' Do not take this as a call for Dom Capers' head. While

I hope Capers is fired, I just don't see it coming.

I'm based on just one game: San Francisco, with all the time in the world to plan the game I can't accept what happened, specially after seeing how Kapernick played against the other teams.

I would like to see Kevin Greene step up to DC, he seems to be able to get most of his players.

Capers really should have been gone before this year. Assuming there is an ounce of talent on the defensive roster, I really cannot imagine the D doing worse under anyone else. Our mistakes are always so costly.

Should Dom Capers be the Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator in 2014?

If your defense has declined this bad from last year, if your defense has been inconsistent as fuck for the last 3 years, why would you bring him back? I don't get it if they bring him back.. Even if it is the players, we need to change something. If something's broke, by all means try to fix it.. Don't keep breaking it.

Agreed. I know we don't have Seattle's secondary - but it is hard to imagine that they are as bad as they look this year. I don't claim to be an NFL caliber coach/staff member, but I do have experience playing safety - and from what I have seen, their coverage schemes are being played wrong, or the guys working the playcalling are dropping the ball.

It is disturbing how many potential turnovers they have dropped - many of which could have been caught by average Joe. Maybe James Jones should share his secret with them - remember how buttery his hands used to be?

Some of the problems are indeed on Capers, but others can be blamed on the guys on the field and coaching staff. If I was a DB coach - I would be breathing fire! My point being that Dom is high on the blame list, but I don't think simply replacing him is going to fix everything - there are other staff members that need a boot in their ass.

I'm in the minority, at least for now, because at this moment in time I am not in the fire Dom group.

I am leaning toward getting a new DC, but I can see why some want him to stay. Considering the endless injuries have plagued us the past couple of years, it makes things much more difficult for all of the staff. I suppose we would have more to go by if we had a better group at safety.

The bottom line is something has to change. Right now our secondary is the lauging stock of the NFL.

Injuries haven't helped, but I just see a unit which lacks leadership and confidence. I personally would like to see a Coordinator on the sideline who can motivate the troops when needed. Without Rodgers putting up 30 this group can't get it done. I still say the big mistake was not properly addressing the Safety position when we lost Collins. Maybe the value was not there or they thought the loss could be solved in-house, but our Safety play has been terrible and the deep middle-of-the-field catches are getting painful to watch. It is funny to see that we lead the league in sacks, but we must also lead the league in giving up 1st downs on 3rd and 10+ yards because it doesn't seem to matter that we move the team back when we constantly give up big plays over the middle.

Nice to see we're getting sacks, but we're NOT getting INTs.

The problem I have with Dom is that the guys don't know who to cover. And the DL haven't been maintaining their gaps. I mean get your shit together dude. Season's been on the brink for weeks.

And why hasn't Hyde gotten any snaps at S? Is Richardson the answer? Banjo? Find someone who can play.

And I am sure you guys know this but try to keep in mind that just because a guy is coached to do something doesn't mean they don't have something that gets in the way of that. Some dudes don't have it, and if that is the case, that goes back to talent evaluation and getting the right guys.

Getting a new Defensive Coordinator would undoubtedly mean getting a whole new defensive philosophy. Capers uses finesse and trickery - I would contend he does that out of necessity because of the weakness of Packer defensive personnel. He custom designs schemes for whoever we are up against. Sometimes it works better than others. When Aaron Rodgers is there, his D didn't need to be great because we could outscore just about anybody just about anytime. Other teams would have to play catch up, which made his schemes even tougher to crack.

Is that what we want/need? And by "we", I mean primarily Mike McCarthy and TT? My guess is yes.

Two things we DON'T need: 1. Keep the type of D and get rid of the genius of that D. 2. Get some Rah Rah WWE type loud mouth who substitutes being fired up for brains. (hell yeah I mean Kevin Greene)

It wouldn't bother me to get a new DC, although I think it is better to keep Capers. Just make sure the prospective new guy has intelligence and experience to deal with whatever situation he needs to deal with.

In 2010 our D was continuously put in situations where they had to step up, and they did. After watching the San Fran game last year, 2010 seemed like an eternity ago.

uffda udfa (17h) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (17h) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI

uffda udfa (18h) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (18h) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
