    Definitely not a dumbass. A dumbass wouldn't have bothered to ask. I had to ask a lot of questions to figure out rugby whenever I first started learning about it. Granted understanding american football was a big help.

    Remember Mike McCarthy's first game as head coach.... 0 - 26 home opener.... since then, we've won a superbowl and have had one of the more explosive offenses in the last half decade. Dom is a good coach, he's managed to macgyver us a good'ish scheme that's worked so far, imagine what he'd be able to do in his first 3 years if he had more than just Clay Matthews.

    He rules right now.

    Until the Packers defense shows struggles again in some game then he can be fired again.

    I think that this thread is ridiculous. Capers is a good defensive coordinator. The only comment that I have about last night's defensive turnaround is that it was less about scheme and more about the players wanting it.

    And, I'm not so sure about the secondary yet. Sure the D looked good, but it was the Bears O line and Cutler. That's like the Viking fans bragging they beat the Jaguars in overtime.

    Don't get me wrong, if we went 14 and 2 and the only two wins were against the Bears, it would be a great consolation and something to be happy about. But I'm still not sold on the D. I want to see them consistently look like they did last night.

    Funny how you haven't posted anything since the game yesterday. Without the Packers offense turning the ball over, the Packers defense would have let up no touchdowns. And this Bears offense was supposedly better than our offense.

    Sorry I don't spend 24/7 on this forum. I admit that defense played pretty good yesterday. But I still don't like and don't want Capers. These defense has had way more crappy games than good games in the last year. So Im not sold.If it wasn't for Mathews Playing like a mad man yesterday and Cutler crumbling like a little girl. Bears had several drop balls that could have easily turned that game around. Still saw some of the trailing receivers and a bit of confusion going on. A good QB would have still picked them apart. (I don't consider Cuntler a good QB)

    This defense has played 2 games. It's a very different defense than they played last year.

    Too soon, should have waited a few more days. "So, uh, haven't seen you around for a while. Any particular reason?"

    I still think players make Capers. Even when Mathews was getting double teamed he was a beast. I think someone like the giants and Eli could pick this defense apart. Many times those players were still placed in wrong spots and trailing the Bears receivers. Luckily they had the droppies and Cutler decided to give us plenty of gifts. I dont see Eli giving us all those gifts and many of the Giants receivers dropping that many balls. I use Giants as an example because I think they'll be someone we will have to face again in the post season

    No you use the Giants as an example because you think it will cause an uproar. Just admit it. Otherwise you would have said Stafford, Ryan, Brees, etc.

    Those guys commit too many INTs and try to force the ball too much. I would use maybe Brady. Peyton. Eli as QBs who don't really make stupid mistakes on a regular basis

    http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/5526/eli-manning. Because averaging a pick per game isn't a regular basis. Fail.

    And you know this how, exactly? Do you really think they didn't "want it" when we played the 49ers? That's just preposterous.

    Victor Cruz had three drops last week. Nicks and Hixon had one apiece too.

    Cant find Eli's post season stats. But I'm pretty sure when it matters in the playoffs those stats are better off. But if it makes you feel better, I will just say the top 5 QBs in the nfl will pick apart this defense

    That's because Eli reaches into his bag of tricks. I'll give him the title of sneakiest QB in the NFL, he's good at getting defenses to make mistakes. It's really all he's good at. It does make me feel better, petty victories always do. It also makes me smug that you didn't go top 10: I Like my chances against the top 5, since that narrows it down to 4.

    Such a lier! The forum shows when the last time you were on the page, and what forum you are reading. I saw you on the forum after the game was over.
