If he thinks pass and it is a pass he got a late start on rushing the passer----if he guesses pass and it's a run he rushes the passer and isn't in position to contain Kapernick.another situation not off play action-----the QB drops back to pass and our OLBs rush the passer-----meanwhile a RB goes out into the area, which the OLB released from/vacated and no one there in time to prevent the pass and a run up the sideline----this led to two(tds) in the first half. Now Carl tells us Jones is suppose to comeover and cover the RB, but where was he? no where to be found. Later on yes, but then he was so conscious of the RB near the sideline that he cheated toward that area and wasn't in position to take on Kapernick's runs inside. The worst case of poor coaching I think I've ever seen in the NFL since Scooter McClean. I say fire Capers, as the players will have little or no confidence in him in the future----even if in the unlikely event he is able to right the ship!

I'm with Murf. He has to go. Even when he was blitzing, it was a delayed blitz at times from DB's that did nothing. And the Packers better figure it out. 3 teams in the NFC made the playoffs with similar QB's and are all young. RGIII, Wilson and Kapernick. Heck, even Joe Webb. That's 4 teams with a style like that.
Packers need to adjust their Defense if they want to even get out of the NFC. The window is closing and already they wasted 2 years of elite WR's with nothing to show. A fart in the wind indeed.If these QB's were in the AFC, you could maybe get away another year screwing around with Capers Dinosaur Defense, but the world has changed and it's right in their backyard.
