    Packers shifting to a 3-4 defense in 2009

    INDIANAPOLIS — The Vikings’ biggest rival, the Green Bay Packers, have announced their intention to make a sigificant change in 2009 by shifting to a 3-4 defense under new coordinator Dom Capers. That will make Green Bay the only team in the division to use the 3-4 as its base defense.

    Not a big fan of the 3-4 against the run. But who knows, it's worked for the Steelers and plenty of other teams...

    [size=13pt]Conversion formula[/size]

    A personnel director for a team with a 3-4 defense foresees growing pains in Green Bay.

    "It's a huge transition for them," the scout said last week. "It will be a chore to adapt that talent to a 3-4 scheme. But the guy (Capers) who is doing it is a good enough coach so he probably will blend in a little 4-3 and not make it a total transition in Year 1. If you can do that, you can survive until you have two or three years to kind of flip the roster."

    I tend to agree with this guy about the growing pains...not as easy as one might think.

    I wonder if being in the same division as Adrian Peterson pushed them to make this decision. Granted, a 4-3 is better suited against the run, the 3-4 is faster.

    I can't wait to see Peterson tear it to shreds.

    the 3-4 system that capers brings from his days with LeBeau and cower is very stout against the run, and your crazy if you think it won;t be better than last year...

    Doesn't take a crazy person to realize that the Packers are back to being garbage for decades again.
