Fire Dom Capers
Ernest Dominic Capers has been the Defensive Coordinator for the Green Bay Packers since the 2009 season. Despite gobs of talent, we consistently find players out of position and poorly placed. This is not a talent issue or a health/injury problem. This is a scheme and play calling issue. Capers must go, and McCarthy can't be too far behind him. Green Bay has been very tolerant and it's time to stop that. Green Bay has seen some of the BEST individual defensive players, and these careers are not allowed to flourish because of the play-calling. Surely they shine as individuals but we have never seen a GREAT, FEARED or even an above average defense under Coach Capers. Example: Today (11/13/2016) The Packers came into the day ranked 1st in defense against the run. And 8th overall, but the Packers gave up 23, 17, 27, 16, 30 and 10 points the first six weeks, including all but falling apart against Jacksonville and Detroit, in games that should not have been close. Capers' soft, laxed approach is the issue and the obvious lack of consistency week to week, season to season is a direct reflection of his play-calling. The last three weeks Capers' crew has allowed 33, 31 and 47 points. Not a typo, FORTY SEVEN POINTS TO THE TITANS! Point is, defensive rankings by yardage rarely tell the tale, and often do not convert to W's on the defensive side of the ball. Look no further than Minnesota and Arizona this year. Even if it is a player issue, the coach of the unit is the one held accountable, except in this instance, for some strange reason? I sat in below freezing temperatures and watched Colin Kaepernick annihilate the defense on the ground during the playoffs and seemingly EVERYONE IN THE STADIUM KNEW WHAT KAEP WAS GOING TO DO, except Dom. How many pro bowlers on the defensive side of the ball need to come through Green Bay, before we realize it's the coach?
DOM CAPERS MUST GO! The team needs this. Sign the petition. This message is approved by Joe Yancey III
