Give me a break.
Bishop's pros and cons are well documented. He is great using his athleticism against the run. He makes plays behind the line of scrimmage and is able to get off blocks, unlike AJ Hawk. But every time he's given a chance to play more than a handful of downs, his undisciplined play, especially against the pass, jump right to the front.
Money quote from Packer Update:
Bishop desperately needs reps in regular season games, but the coaches seem much more comfortable with Hawk and Chillar – a pair of veterans who have combined for only 10 big plays (interceptions, sacks, forced fumbles) in the past two seasons. “Capers worked really hard to figure out ways to get Chillar on the field last season, and the payoff was minimal,” said the scout. “He provided next to nothing as a pass rusher and he was mediocre at best when it came to covering tight ends. Maybe it’s about time for Capers to use that creative mind of his to figure out ways to get Bishop on the field.” And he should do it before it’s too late.
While I agree that the payoff was minimal with Chillar, I'd argue that Capers did a great job of finding a way to get Bishop on the field and to simplify his assignments to be able to utilize his skill set as best they could.
Exhibit A? The Psycho package.
