The Oakland Raiders will reportedly hire Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen as their next coach, meaning both Winston Moss and Dom Capers will be returning to the Green Bay Packers, at least as of now.
The Oakland Raiders are reportedly interested in Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers to fill their head coaching vacancy. We break down the possibility of the Packers losing Capers here.
Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews knows what everyone who’s watched the team play this season knows — the Packers haven’t played their best football yet. Here’s why.
A final look at the Green Bay Packers 42-36 win over the New Orleans Saints — what worked, what didn’t, who impressed and who’s to blame.
It’s the last night practice of training camp. The Green Bay Packers decided to throw all the tourists off and change the schedule for the rest of the practices. They’ll now start at 11:15 a.m. Under pressure I know some of this could be attributed to [intlink id=”305″ type=”category”]Dom Capers[/intlink]’ defense, but the offense was […]
Defensive coordinator Dom Capers is tinkering with the Green Bay Packers defensive line. Capers is considering moving B.J. Raji to defensive end so he’s matched up against a guard and returning Ryan Pickett to nose tackle. This should work out just fine.
Perhaps lost in the hype surrounding the Green Bay Packers’ matchup with the Chicago Bears for the NFC Championship is this important nugget — Packers defensive coordinator isn’t going anywhere. There was talk towards the end of the season Capers should be and could be considered for an NFL head coaching job because of the […]
Not bad for a cat that was on the street early in the season. Erik Walden was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his play against the Chicago Bears. Walden had 12 tackles and two sacks against the Bears. Strangely, Walden is a guy who was released by the Miami Dolphins in […]
Although Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews said injuries weren’t slowing him down earlier this week, that may not be the case. On Friday, it was revealed Matthews has a shin injury that is getting progressively worse. The injury won’t heal until the offseason, when Matthews will be able to rest it. “It’s constant, I’ll […]
Remember Brandon Underwood? During the summer, the Green Bay Packers were high on Underwood. Coach Mike McCarthy said he was the player who made the biggest second-year jump. Underwood came into training camp as the Packers nickel cornerback. Underwood played well during practice, but that didn’t carry over to the preseason games. Then he got […]
Nothing against Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers, but the guy isn’t an NFL head coach, despite the support he seems to be garnering around Green Bay. On Wednesday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Capers was worthy of a head coaching job. I respectfully disagree, Mike. Capers is a great defensive coordinator, something he […]
After Sunday’s Green Bay Packers victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, I incorrectly assumed Packers inside linebacker A.J. Hawk started the game before giving way to Brandon Chillar. Afterwards, assuming he had been on the field and I had missed him, I questioned where Hawk was. He didn’t record a single stat and it turns out, […]
The Green Bay Packers offense is potent, we knew that, but in their longest outing of the preseason against last year’s AFC champs, they put any doubts to rest. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who I have a hard time believing isn’t on his way to becoming the best player in the NFL, cut up the Colts […]
For the second week in a row, the Green Bay Packers offense looked unstoppable, while their defense looked suspect — this time in a 27-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Just as they did against Cleveland a week earlier, the Packers employed a vanilla version of their defense. Unlike last year, when the team was […]
We knew this would happen in the second year under defensive coordinator Dom Capers, who runs one of the most complex defenses in the NFL, but Green Bay Packers linebacker Nick Barnett spoke to how the defense will expand in 2010. In fact, Barnett compared the nature of the defense to a relationship. In the […]
Green Bay Packers’ safety Nick Collins made no bones about it. The Packers want to have the NFL’s No. 1 defense in 2010. “We want to be the No. 1 overall defense,” Collins said. “We want everybody to talk about us, not talk about what we could be.” That might be tough for a number […]
It’s become apparent that Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews will be coming at quarterbacks from places other than just his customary spot at right outside linebacker. Matthews rushed the quarterback from the inside linebacker position several times during minicamp, a move that appears to be part of the evolution of Dom Capers’ defense […]
Since we’ve been foaming at the mouth for the past two days about Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings’ playoff implosion, we’ve ultimately ignored some Green Bay Packers “news.” One of those items is the fact that former Denver Broncos and current Miami Dolphins defensive coordinator Mike Nolan admitted that he turned the Packers down […]
This footage could partially explain why the Green Bay Packers vaunted defense played so poorly against the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday (although we think there are two other clear-cut reasons). In it, you’ll see Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers, who appears to dose off and then suddenly jerk back to life like someone who’s trying […]
The Green Bay Packers defense was exposed by the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The NFL’s second-ranked unit fell apart against the vaunted Cardinals passing attack, much the same way they did three weeks earlier against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s now pretty clear why these things have happened. The middle of the Packers defense if vulnerable […]
