    Dom Capers defenses have never beaten Brett Favre. I think this article states the obvious; that is, he HAS to do something differently than he has ever done against Favre. I thought it was funny how the article basically says; He'll do it by blitzing or not blitzing. I read that and went "duh" in my mind.

    I think he has full confidence in Matthews now to let him run wild

    This is probably really naive of me. But why doesn't Capers study the Jets/Vikings game tapes to see how to stop them? It seems to me the Jets gave a pretty good blue print of what to do. Put C. Wood on Moss all night and mix the defense around a lot just pre-snap so Favre can't read who's coming and who isn't.

    I am pretty sure Capers is looking at that game tape. The Packers also better look to help Bulaga this week. I think we need to let Rodgers get out of the pocket to use his feet and pick up first downs too instead of the having a 3rd down conversion ratio that is totally pathetic.

    honestly last year i was so furstrated with both vikings games because our D played entirely different from normal, and i think thats why we lost. we didnt pressure at all, and so he had all day. ON PURPOSE.

    we didn't get any pressure on him last year. This year we are much better at rushing the passer.

    I see Matthews with 3 sacks and 1 unnecessary roughness penalty.

    I would definately take a 15 yarder if it didnt make a difference in the game haha, it just might be worth it! ha

    Also, if Bigby does play, I can see him with a helmet to helmet.. He's one that 'missels' himself, but it sure is fun to watch!

    Favre hasnt handled the blitz well as of late, we need to get at him with some exotic packages and put the hurt one him, it will force him to make stupid throws

    Maybe every Packer fan can kick in a few bucks and pay for any fines Clay gets from the NFL?

    I'm more worried about our offense getting it's arse in gear. I wouldn't be surprised if the Vikes did put up a decent amount of points. We should be at least matching it.

    I hope Favre doesn't plan on whining his silly little head off to the refs anytime a Packer gets within a 2 foot radius of his precious self. ....They're animals, I tell you!!!!!!

    I EXPECT the unnecessary roughness call. In fact, I DEMAND it. But it need to be timed right.
    It just can't happen when we're stopping them. It needs to happen early in the game, to send a message.

    I want Favre to be hit hard and often. No need to LT on Theismann, but get the old man bruised up! It's football, goddammit!!!! Not ballet.

    BTW, Capers has NEVER won against Favre. NEVER. So...

    There is always a first time for everything. And if Dom doesnt **** his brains out for breakfast on Sunday like he did twice last year it should be ok. Like you said hit Favre early and often and itll put him into freak out mode like it always does. If someone is gonna draw the penalty tho let it be someone we can stand to lose for a game and not someone like Clay or Chuck

    I'll give him this much. I don't remember him ever whining to refs about the hits on him. His team might, but if I recall, he used to get up and get right in the face of whoever hit him. Sometimes he'll even jump up and smack em on the butt.

    That would be something. Rodgers is hit in the helmet every single game, and there's never even a flag.
    And in the first game that the league decides to punish more severely helmet-to-helmet hits, a Packers player is ejected.

    I THINK that would make me take a shotgun and fly to the NFL headquarters. Not that I condone violence in any way.

    If Rodgers takes shots all day and doesn't get any of those calls, I'm going to be pissed if Matthews gets one.
