    Dom Capers

    He has transformed a terrible Greenbay defense into 1 of the best in the NFL. Why was he such a failure in New England? Many of us blamed him for the defensive woes during the time he was there and were happy to see the back of him. Was it the players or was he not allowed run the D the way he obviously can?

    Re: Dom Capers

    Well imo a little of both. First lets start w/ the players. GB has tons of talent on both sides of the ball. Up front their big and mean , and very versatile. They could use some help at DE but very solid line , cable of putting pressure w/ just 3 rushers. Besides Matthews you dont reall hear alot about their backers but they have a very good group. Bishop is having a real good year , along Hawk in the middle. Their secondary might be the best in football. Collins is a beast at S and is a consistant , versatile player who always shows up. Williams is on everybobys snub list for the pro-bowl ( along w/ L. Timmons ) and Woodson is still a gr8 DB who can change the game in many ways. Yea I'd say their D is better in almost every way. Although its not just talent , he did a gr8 job there and it took some time and some players coming/going. Second his style is different from what we do here in N.E. We play a bend/dont break style , while he and the Steelers play a read and attack. Again as opposed to our , read and react. Im rooting for GB to win it all , I think its good for the league. A new GB team that will be there in the future , w/ alot of young players.

    he has amazing DBs that allow for crap players like Cullen Jenkins to get to the QB.  also they get rid of this bad old dudes [al harris] and keep the good ones [woodson]

    He was not the DC in New England, remember? Pees was and capers kinda did a touch and go with NE, he was working with the DBs.

    So was he really a failure with his limited influence on the defense? No

    Seemed like Bill B gave him a bridge job. I'm trying to remember why he was actually unemployed in the first place.

    Capers spent the past year as a special assistant and secondary coach of the New England Patriots. He is still owed $2.6 million by the Dolphins for the 2009 season; he was hired by Miami in 2006 and was defensive coordinator in 2007.
    While the Packers are getting an undisclosed discounted salary for this year, a source said the team will pay Capers in excess of $2 million for 2010.
    The 58-year-old Capers, the former Carolina Panthers and Houston Texans head coach replaces Bob Sanders, whom McCarthy fired Jan. 5, along with most of the defensive position coaches

    Wow he's been around!

    Not to mention, in 2008 that was probably the point that they were the oldest and slowest (Bruschi, Vrabel, Seymour, Harrison). Plus, 2008 was the year of the Deltha O'Neal experiment *shudder*.

    Re: Dom Capers

    Capers is succeeding in Green Bay because he has a pass rush(mathews) and better DBs (Collins Woodson) than he had when he was with the Patriots. I really find it hard to believe that the Packers secondary is so underated when compared to the Jets or Steelers.

    Pees was the DC, Capers was the secondary coach for only a year. Josh McDaniels made a huge mistake by hiring Mike Nolan over Dom Capers. Everywhere the guy has gone he's had good D. Sadly his 2 head coaching gigs (Houston, Carolina) didn't go well because he had a lousy QB (Carr and Collins). I think if McDaniels hired him to be his DC in Denver he would still be coaching there.
