Any chance that Mike Singletary could be a good coordinator? Firey guy?


I highly doubt it. Good rah rah guy, pretty poor at actually coaching though.

People saying Kevin Greene...I don't see it. And if it happened, then I'd be a little concerned. He doesn't strike me as a DC.

What I've heard from Vikings fans who are friends of mine and pretty tuned in to that organization (he's an LB coach for them) is that he's darn near incompetent as a coach. He'll yell and scream, but he just doesn't prepare like a pro coach.

For a defensive coordinator I personally prefer a cerebral guy. Get the position coaches to scream and yell, I want the DC to be someone who thinks.

I'll echo this. If he is cerebral and firey great, but the priority is clearly on the former for the coordinator position.

I could be on board with Mangini. His versatility with scheme always impressed me. I feel like his HC gigs left him a little shell shocked though. Not sure he commands as much respect in the locker room as a guy like Dom does.

If we let the old guy with lego-man hair leave I don't want us to promote within, I want some new blood from the outside. I would like us to give Jim Tomsula a chance if we go that route, seems like a high energy guy who the players love and he gets 100% from them.

Dom Capers imo should not get fired bc he's not playing on the field. Packers were ranked middle of the NFL in total defese this year with zero continuity. Dom Capers can coach up some players, which you can see with the backups being able to transition to starting roles. Thats coaching!!
Plus you have to listen to what the players think of Dom, and from what I hear they believe in Dom.

Nah I give DC one more year with a healthy D, and believe he can get the job done.

Can you just give him a 1 year extension though? Or would it likely be a 2-3 year extension for the whole staff?

Didn't want to start a new thread, but does anyone else feel like we've gotten away from the fire blitz scheme that we thought Dom was bringing in?


F-word YES!


This is what I'm talking about when I say Dom has gotten vanilla. Regardless of ranking, Dom has dialed up a good game plan only when he seems to think he has to. You look at how he GAVE UP against the Giants in 2011 and how he couldn't adjust to Kaepernick this last time around.

He's been here 4 years and his creativity has significantly tailed off. Cut the cord, hire Mangini or someone else that isn't afraid to give up and constantly get the best out of what he has while seeking to improve. Dom doesn't seem to grasp this, at least not anymore.

Not sure how that works with coaches but you can sign players to 1 year deals. imo id like to see Dom offered a two year vs a one because a two year deal sends the message that the organization's behind him.

Mangini is an average motivator. IMO Mangini is not an upgrade from Dom Capers.
