    That's why he would be going near the end of the 2nd to middle of the 3rd round, instead of being in the 1st round.

    1. Fire McCarthy - his awful playcalling is awful.
    2. Fire Ted Thompson - he's done nothing to address the oline/defense.
    3. Fire Capers - his playmakers can't stay healthy and he's just poopey
    4. Get rid of Rodgers and all the players - they're not as good as San Fran and don't put up a billion points every game - Gerrh!
    5. Get rid of the whiny fans that want everyone fired after our injured team loses to one of the most loaded teams in the last decade....

    any of these options ... idk, knee jerk.

    News flash buddy. This team has been injured before and our claim to fame was our depth. No one is asking for anyone's head, but Capers. We are constantly unprepared and get the crap beat out of us even with our starters. Have you ever stopped to think why we are consistently the most injured team in football. No that's not Caper's fault, but we need to work on that. We are not a physical defense and we get man handled every year on D. It's time for a change.

    That sounds more like a personal issue for the players

    Something is wrong with our training staff if we get so many injuries every year.

    1: Draft 2 OL in at worst the first 5 rounds (1 in first 3 rounds)
    2: Splash in Free Agency on the defensive side of the ball at either a LB or DL position
    3: Do not be afraid to draft best available player TT (it has worked and shouldn't be abandoned)

    *4: Capers retires, we thank him but move forward to better things.

    Not a lot of DCs know the 3-4 so it is a small market. BUT I think we have way too much young talent on defense to be playing like that. I like Capers but we can't play like this anymore.

    TT needs to cut some players and let others walk in free agency to free up cap space. My list would include losing all of the following: Greg Jennings, Jeff Saturday, Jermichael Finley, Donald Driver, Ryan Grant, James Starks, AJ Hawk, Erik Walden, and Charles Woodson. Many of these guys have high salaries that will choke our cap next season. Walden, Grant, and Starks just aren't worth it anymore. Finley only turned it on at season's end, when reports leaked that Green Bay wasn't going to bring him back. He'll revert to the same old Finley in 2013, which is an average tight end. We've got talent waiting at that position and could better use our cap space on defense.

    I would let Cedric Benson compete for the running back spot with Green and Harris next season, but no guarantees. He cost next to nothing in 2012 and still showed that he can gain yards. Crosby certainly needs wide-open competition in camp for the FG duties. I'm not in favor of using a draft pick here though.

    Certainly TT will look at D-line and O-line in the draft, but should scour the open markets for talent. I top safety would be a great FA aquisition assuming that Woodson is gone. We will also need to either draft or acquire another MLB.

    I like a Harris and Benson combo next year. I think they complement each other well -- Harris as the speed guy, Benson as the power guy.

    It gets a little murkier after that. Starks has shown talent but demonstrates a great deal of trouble staying healthy. Green has had every opportunity to win the starting job this year but doesn't look like anything more than the newest version of Brandon Jackson.

    People...enough with the Hawk talk, clean cutting him is just dumb. Yes he's expensive, so I would be behind a trade (no takers I'm sure) or attempting to re-structure his contract. HOwever, he definitely is a tackler just can't blitz or cover guys hardly at all. I was hoping this would be Bishop's proving year and make letting Hawk go easier, with Bishop's injury I think he secured Hawk's future atleast next season with us.

    I am a fan of keeping Woodson but man his contract is massive, restructure would be nice, but even if not I say keep.

    Seriously. Contract Year.
    The only OL I expect TT to draft is C/G, and unless we drop EDS (which I don't see happening) only a backup.
    DL we just spent a bunch of picks on, but we have 3 guys in contract years, so I expect we may get another NT or runstuffing DE. FS would be wise since the only 2 guys who can play it are in contract years in 2013, and one of them is actually a SS. ILB our starters are set, it'd basically be depth.

    I love that list and see great possibilities for sure in it like you do. I especially like the Garrad pick up if cheap as a great back up, Shonn Greene intrigues me for the right price, Fasano I like but only if Finley is gone and his price isn't as high as I believe it may be, I like the Golston idea on DL and Manny Lawson or Siler would be my choices out of the LBs.
