    It's an interesting debate, because it's almost impossible to know for sure whether it's the players that are bad or the coaching is bad. It sounds like McCarthy has made up his mind, though, with his comments about the defense needing more playmakers.

    TT's draft and develop strategy can definitely work, and I'm not one clamoring for FA signings, but relying on the draft exclusively means the drafting has to be exceptional. Bad drafts are not something a guy with TT's strategy can afford.

    This is really the deciding factor for me. There are plenty of bad defenses in the league, but those are generally universally bad against all opponents. The Packers seem to be fine on defense against less accomplished offenses, but top-tier offenses can make them look embarrassingly bad. Roethlisberger's 500-yd game, Kurt Warner in the 2009 wildcard game. Peterson gaining 400+ yards in 2 games last year, Kaepernick in last year's playoffs. Bouldin in the opener.

    It's just my instinct, but that just seems like a coaching problem to me. As if there's a major weakness in the defense, but one that can only be exploited by top offenses. There are enough crappy teams to get the Packers a division title, but it's hard to imagine the defense holding it together enough to get through the playoffs.

    I really think a major factor in Caper's keeping his job was the defensive performance against San Francisco. Even with all of the injuries they had, they still managed to keep the 49ers from putting up a lot of points. Additionally, Capers had some good calls in that game, the defense was in position to make turnovers and stop drives, it's just that individual players weren't up to the task. I don't guess you can blame Capers for that.

    I really hope the Packers can find a pass rusher (DE) this off season. I think pass rushing is the biggest deficiency on defense. Too often, even when the packers blitz, opposing quarterbacks have all the time in the world to sit back in the pocket and wait for their receivers to get open. You give a good quarterback time and he'll make even a good secondary look bad.

    Amen. We have not had many really good pass rushers the past 20 years! ...like maybe 3 or 4?

    If we can't slow down Brady just a little bit, I'll lose all faith in this defense. Gotta be able to slow down the top QB's, that's who you'll be facing in the playoffs. Can't have a defensive repeat of what happened in NO.

    I think Peppers is the most important player in this offense defense matchup. He gets to the QB and Pack win.

    I wish people would stop talking about the playoffs. Just take it one week at a time because the NFC is stacked there are NO guarantees . I think Capers has to double Gronk the entire game and move peppers and Matthews all over the field and let them attack BrAdy. I think our cbs can match up with them in single coverage

    You can go further back than that, capers has been stealing since 2012. The defense hasn't impressed me enough to say things have turned around and his job should be safe. Eventually Matthews is going to have to go back outside then what? They still havnt found a way to cover tightends, and guess whos on deck ? The leagues best tightend .

    Interesting how this thread comes up during a time the defense is playing well. With Bush and Jones not playing much recently, I guess Capers now has to take it.

    Why does it matter? How about instead of telling people what not to talk about, you just not read it? Seems like a simple solution to me.

    Ok then I hope you don't hear from me until after the SB ...and secondly I hope you mean until the Packers are done. It would be foolish to ban me until the playoffs are over if my team isn't playing don't cha think? This isn't that big of a deal so I don't know what you're trying to prove sir.

    Nothing said on this forum will in any way effect what the Packers do on the field, so likewise... R-E-L-A-X and let people talk about whatever want.
