Three days after a historically pathetic performance by the Packers defense, Packers coach Mike McCarthy says that the man who runs the defense will be back in 2013, possibly to have another historically pathetic performance in the postseason. McCarthy told reporters on Tuesday that Dom Capers will be back. Sort of.

Via ESPN.com, McCarthy said that he is very confident Capers will return in 2013, but that McCarthy plans to evaluate everyone.

I support this decision!

They would be stupid to keep Dom for another year but I would not complain if they do!

Kevin Greene has known and worked with Dom Capers for decades, so its no surprise the Packers outside linebackers coach will defend his defensive coordinator. Its the colorful manner in which he defended him which is so fantastic. Asked if Capers deserved to keep his job, Greene was adamant.

Greene: Does a fat baby fart? Big time. Absolutely. No doubt about it. Hes the same guy that took a defense from No. 24 to No. 5, or No. 2, then the Super Bowl year were No. 5. Hes the same guy. This is the same system. I mean, yeah, Dom is without a doubt the right guy. I think thats about it there.

While Dom certainly did a poor job that game, I don't think you can fire him on the basis of that. Let's not forget how bad the Packers' defense was under Bob Sanders.

From the "what if" file, we take you back to the spring of 1996. Ray Lewis is a middle linebacker out of the University of Miami considered too small by many teams. The Green Bay Packers were not one of them. The Packers had already written Lewis' name on the card to be the 27th selection of the 1996 NFL Draft. The Baltimore Ravens grabbed him at No. 26 and the rest is history.

"That's what happened," Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey told Milwaukee Journal Sentinal reporter Bob McGinn. "You never know." Dorsey worked in the Packers' front office for 22 years before the Chiefs hired him after the regular season.

Green Bay took tackle John Michels instead.

Brett Favre probably would have won another ring or two if the Packers had Ray Lewis on there defense.

On Saturday night, at the NFLs second annual postseason awards show, current Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and former Packers quarterback Brett Favre made a joint appearance. Rodgers said Tuesday that he hopes its the first step in a new era between Rodgers, Favre, and the franchise.

Rodgers: As the face of the franchise now, it's a role that I take very seriously. I have the responsibility and enjoy having the opportunity to represent my team. I think its important to realize that it is probably time to move forward. Brett is two years removed from the game. Hes going to obviously be in the Packers Hall of Fame. Hell get his number retired, and hell be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in the next few years. Its important, I think, to make sure that hes recognized for all the accomplishments that hes achieved in our organization especially. Hes still very dear to many of our fans for the things that hes done for the Packers on the field. You can never take that away.

That's interesting, although not surprising. He is 37 years old and has a huge contract.

wouldn't it just be easier to restructure or for him to just take a pay cut (like Michael Jenkins did for us)?

I don't know...I think its the end of the line for Woodson and the Packers.

This is why

@JasonLaCanfora: The Packers have announced the release of CB Charles Woodson, who was set to count about $11M against the cap.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy was asked at the Scouting Combine if his team has grown soft. He didnt care for the suggestion.

McCarthy: To me, were a physical, tough football team. I totally disagree. I dont know how you can put the tape on and say the Green Bay Packers arent physical. How do we play any different from the approach, the identity today that we did in 2010? How do you swing that far? You dont go from here to here.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/02/27/mike-mccarthy-doesnt-want-to-hear-that-the-packers-are-soft/


the 49ers certainly swung them around, that's for sure.

The Packers are reportedly torn about what to do with tight end Jermichael Finley this offseason, but Finley is a bit less conflicted. Finley told ESPN.com that he hasnt heard anything from the Packers yet about addressing his contract, which has him set to count $8.75 million against the cap in 2013. Should they be planning to give him a call and ask about the possibility of a pay cut, they might as well save their breath.

Finley: Id have to walk for sure, meaning I couldnt take a pay cut. Maybe Id restructure if its a deal that I like and it makes sense, but Im not the guy thats just going to sign anything and let anything pass. Im not that guy. Other than that, taking a pay cut or restructuring doesnt sound good to me at this time. I like my deal. I start training in Minneapolis tomorrow and Im more inspired than ever to start next season off right and be the tight end I know I can be. Its all business at the end of the day. I just love what I do.
