    What's so great about Dom Capers?

    All the analysts are talking about how Dom Capers is going to transform the Pack into a great D.

    I was curious, so I looked up his influance on D's during his career, here's what I found

    2009 Packers D coordinator (preseason), #28 overall, #31 passing, #16 rushing
    2008 Patriots Special Asst to HC/secondary #10 overall, #11 passing, #15 rushing
    2007 Dolphins D coordinator #23 overall D, #4 passing, #32 rushing
    2006 Dolphins special asst to HC, #4 overall D
    2002-2005 Texans HC best record 7-9, D rankings #16, #31, #23, #31
    1999-2001 Jags D coord, rankings #4, #12, #16
    1995-1998 Panthers HC, one winning season, D rankings #7, #10, #15, #30
    1992-1994 Steelers D coord, #13, #3, #2

    I just don't see a defensive guru.
    As a HC he's pathetic, and his D's are the reason.

    Please tell me why the Packers will be better, I just don't see it?

    Nice homework!
    I had the same feeling....but it was nothing more then a gut feeling .....these stats will make it more fun to poke holes in some of my Puker fan friends arguements!
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    Problem being is that I think he inherited a good Packers D.
    So if they do well, it might be talent.


    The Packers D is aggressive.

    The issue wasn't their Defense, it was their predictability. Capers is known as a blitzing guru. I know they are the pack but they have a very talented Defense. Two lock down(old) corners, Talent at the saftey position. A great LB corp and an above average DL. Their offense is so good that any improvement by their Defense will make them better. It's like we are the inverse of the pack. Our defense is soo good that any improvement will make us light years better.

    Re: What's so great about Dom Capers?

    He another coach who gets all the hype because he was a part of the Patriots organization.
    Not high on him and I feel he will fail to meet expectations similar to Crennel, Weis, Mangini, etc.....
    "There are 3 things that sell in America:
    Violence, sex, and drugs.
    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    Not bashing him or defending him, but maybe a little "Devils Advoate"

    But His HC and how his defense does is not a entirly fair compairisonhe is the Head coach and not the D coordinator So he may or may not of had direct influence on plays called, ect.

    His D did get better when he was with the Steelers

    For the JaguarsI am curousl how good they were then as a team, If I remeber and I could be wrong they were a OK team, but the Defense was also still in the top half of the league.

    The Texans were just a horrible team then
    anyways, I am not sure that anyoje could of came in and done a better job, honestly.

    2006 with the Dolphins Special Asst. So I am not sure how much influence he had on that #4 ranking but still good.

    2007 wasn't that the Year they were Horrible anywys?
    There was not alot of talent found on that team.

    Its Pre Season, Not anyway a fair compairison as to how bad they are(But Fun
    ) But learning a new defense and players that were never going to make the team anyways I am wondering why they would even bother to look at it. I am curious if it showed teh Vikings rankings for Pre season, Not sure how we did.

    Sometimes How well a coach does as a Coordinator
    does not translate well as to how they can do as a HEad coach. Totally different argument not for this thread, but the Chilly bashers can talk about this, or look at someone like Brian Billick Great OC coordintor, but His offense was never that good as a HC, and there are alot of coaches name you can throw in there for one way or another. Great job on fnding the info though and a very valid and good argument

    Blitzing sounds sexy, but it also allows big plays if the QB makes the correct read.
    I hope they blitz Favre.
