Everywhere Dom Capers has been, he's had a knack for getting that system up and running immediately. There hasn't been an adjustment period, Capers' 3-4 defenses have been very good and they've been very good in a hurry. Even if Green Bay is aging in the secondary, the Packers still have some solid players back there and the Bears' wide receivers would probably be the first to tell you that. Capers had a dramatic impact on defenses he ran in Jacksonville and Miami in his first season with those clubs, and with expansion teams in Carolina and Houston, he was solid immediately.
I know I have had visions of the first two Giants games when Steve Spagnolo was installing his defensive system as defensive coordinator back in 2007. For those who don't remember, the Cowboys and our own Packers put up 40 points each on the G-Men in successive weeks to begin Spags' tenure. (Of course, that ended all right for the Giants)
Here's hoping Capers continues his string of relatively quick success with his scheme's implementation.
