While I tend to agree, I look back at the Bengals game and think that we actually are able to enter shootout mode, it just seems very difficult to sustain it when we need it. I’m Back ThomasDavis Carolina Panthers Shirt. But I also think the years of Shula-ball has us groomed to not believe we can be a shootout team and Norv has us going in the opposite direction of that, where Cam can have 300+ yard days with relative ease even with our running game putting up almost 200 yards. Great write up! As enemies, I follow the Packers more closely than any other team. I didn’t realize how many “new/old” hires there were this year. The Ted Thompson clip was hilarious and sad. My packers buddy and I are constantly ripping each other, but this offseason we both had to give kudos. I see both teams improving quite a bit. NFC north bloodbath is no joke.

To me, the issues on defense were not necessarily Caper’s scheme. I’m Back ThomasDavis Carolina Panthers Shirt. Thanks! I think I would agree with that, to an extent. I didn’t mind the complex scheme, but it seemed to be totally at odds with our drafting strategy. Every draft we’d pick up a defensive player and the analysts would say we got a guy whose biggest strength was pure physical talent. And I’m just sitting there thinking “If this guy is so brawn-over-brains, how is he going to handle our scheme? To some extent, I think the analysts just say those things about most of the draftees because most of them are raw, undeveloped talents at that point in their careers. But still, for a team with an unusually complex defensive scheme, I would have expected them to draft a few guys whose talking point was good football IQ.

I get that. I’m Back ThomasDavis Carolina Panthers Shirt. And I know defensive coaches need great players to have a great scheme, and that when Capers’ scheme was great in the early years of his tenure he had a bunch of defensive stars playing at their absolute peaks and he got the most out of them. Charles Woodson isn’t a surefire Hall of Famer without Dom Capers; For me, though, you’ve put your finger on the issue. But that wasn’t an irrevocable state of affairs. I wasn’t on the Fire Capers train too much, mostly when I realized he was literally the most tenured DC in the NFL. That’s fucking stupid. I really believe that some fresh blood at DC will do a lot for GB. Numerous players remarked that Capers scheme was overly confusing and worked against rookies. I’m not 100% Pettine will be our saving grace but it’s gotta be an improvement.

It was either on Capers to simplify his scheme (or the way he taught it) such that guys in their first year or two weren’t totally lost, or it was on. I’m Back ThomasDavis Carolina Panthers Shirt. Thompson to realize that, hey, this guy may be a great coach and a great coordinator but what he’s doing just doesn’t fit our overall team philosophy. For whatever reason, neither of those things happened until this year. I hope Pettine is better at working with our young guns – and you’re right, even if it’s basically the same scheme and the same principles (and I don’t know enough about defensive scheming to really understand the differences), having a different guy doing the coaching could make all the difference. Really hope that’s the case. I guess we’ll see.
