    What Perry brought to the table was good run defense, which is what Walden did a bad job of. It might have been enough.

    Translation is lost...

    I never once said they need all pro..Not sure why this is tossed around..I never once said that all possible true starters and everything would be cured..

    I only wanted to know what would HAVE BEEN if all starters never missed a down..

    Every projected starter was there tonight? Wilson, Jones, Walden, Moses, were projected starters? I find that hard to believe

    Wilson actually was, iirc. He's actually a pretty good run stuffing 3-4 end, so yeah.

    Woodson said after the game that the defense made no halftime adjustments.

    Well then, I almost have to blame some of the veteran players as well for not saying SOMETHING. They had to recognize what they were doing wasn't working. I know you're supposed to trust the coaches but jesus christ when my mom knows they need to do something different it must be pretty obvious.

    I'm sure he did everything he could within his role as a player. But he's not a coach. It's even harder when the other team's WRs are grabbing you by the jersey while you're trying to make a damn tackle. The downfield holding on their part was beyond anything I'd ever seen.

    Then I want to know if the players felt the right schemes were called but they just failed to execute them

    Judging by his tone, it sounded like he was saying they should have made some changes, so I think he's passively putting a lot of blame on Capers.

    I saw that as well. At that point the no call wasn't really that surprising.

    Stubborn arrogance. That is why Kap ran for damn near 200. He will never rush for more yards in an NFL game than he did tonight.

    The stubbornness of all the coaches really grinds my gears to the point where I wouldn't be surprised if nothing is done about this.

    if he plays this same D again, he may crack 300, and a shot at Eric Dickersons rushing record...

    I agree with pretty much everything except Grant. That guy gets hit and goes down like a hooker. Most of Harris' yards were after initial contact and they even stopped using him.

    Just a question here but given we have used a 3-4 defence here for what, four, five years ??? wont the players we have need time to adjust to a 4-3 if Capers goes ?? Something needs to change obviously but wont we have the same problems the other way ? Just asking is all.

    Why do we have to say our defence MADE Kaepernick look good tonight ?? The guy was every bit as good as our guy tonight, and Aaron is a pro-bowler. Credit where credit is due guys, Kaepernick served us our butts on a plate to us tonight. Game over.

    Not only adjust..some players would have to be replaced some how due to they wouldn't fit the 4-3 scheme. That's why if they replace Capers it should be with someone who runs the 3-4 so the defense can transition without major problems. Otherwise Rodgers' prime years would be wasted rebuilding a defense again.

    1st of all Welcome, just visited England and maybe you can send us another kicker,and the 4-3 gives the D-line more pressure up front,to pass rush, and run stop,it will leave one less defender for the pass D but it will force QB's like a Kapernick from free zones up the middle, and chase a QB to the outside of a comfort zone because of more pressure up front SF used that quite effectively during the season and tonight.....

    Well, that's probably too easy of a prediction, given that no quarterback in NFL history ever ran for this many yards in a game before! That's how bad this defense was. It managed to set a NFL record in this game. Not just playoff record, an all-time record.

    I can't believe there were no halftime adjustments. I can't believe it. Why are MM and Capers so stubborn?

    By the way, this is the 3rd time in 4 years the defense has been utterly lit up in a playoff game. There's a pattern here.

    Just to sum up why I think Dom Capers should be fired:

    2 years straight and 3 of the last 4 years this defense has been utterly embarrassed in a playoff game which has robbed the Packers of any realistic chance of winning. There is one and only one year that this defense has put together a run under Capers. That 'defensive capital' has been used up. There is none left.

    If MM stubbornly remains committed to Capers I will question his qualifications as a HC as well.

    "We didn't make any adjustments," said Woodson, who later added: "I just think when the game is going the way it is, you've got to try something different. It's hard to just continue to do the same thing over and over again, and continue to get burned."

    Woodson said the Packers are playing "the right defense" but consistently qualified his comments by noting a lack of adjustments. At halftime, Woodson said, the Packers talked only about "trying to execute the defense we were running."

    What an utter shock that the 2nd half turned out just like the 1st defensively.
