Railbird Central Podcast: Defensive Collapse in Consecutive Lambeau Losses

Episode 330

The doctor is in for fans looking for therapy after a 27-13 Packers loss to the Eagles on Sunday, the second consecutive at Lambeau Field, the first time that's happened since 2008. The biggest reason for a loss was the play of the defense that could stop neither Nick Foles nor LeSean McCoy. Dom Capers is on the hot seat, but could the Packers actually go so far as to fire him? Also discussed is the encouraging play from backup quarterback Scott Tolzien.

To be fair, it's been a revolving door at LB this year. The play of the allegedly deep secondary is more disturbing to me.

According to Vic Ketchman at packers.com, this is what Capers said in response to Sunday's loss:

Monday’s postmortem for Capers was all too familiar; it included regret for a fourth-quarter meltdown that had Head Coach Mike McCarthy on edge in his postgame press conference on Sunday. McCarthy referred to it as a “recurring situation.” In this case, it referred to a game-ending Eagles drive that killed the final 9:32 of the clock.

“We’ve certainly tried to address it,” Capers said of his unit’s fourth-quarter failures. The Packers have been outscored in the fourth quarter this season, 83-46. It is the only quarter they’ve been outscored.

“We had one third down when we had a chance to get off the field and missed the tackle,” Capers said. “We had people in position and (Eagles running back LeSean McCoy) juked us and made us miss. Sometimes we had people in perfect position and he made us miss because he’s a skilled guy.”

Does anyone else feel this response is unacceptable?

Capers' fault?
Players' faults?
Injuries?
All of the above, in some combination?

One thing not up for debate: defense stinks lately.
