Leave it to Wayne Larrivee to brighten my day a little bit. God knows he has being doing it for years.





In his most recent post on Wayne's World, Larrivee highlights a recent conversation with Packer's staff. It is worth reading the entire post, but here are a few things that sounded very positive.

Wayne says that the organization feels, "A sense of urgency to return to the playoffs just a season removed from 13-3."

Well, I would hope they do. They should realize their window for success is closing. I am glad I am not alone in feeling that bold moves need to be made.

I was also pleased to hear another glowing review for Dom Capers. Says Wayne, "Dom Capers is a very, very impressive coach and absolutely the right man to take the Packers defense into the 3-4."

Larrivee affirms his convictions later stating, "What reassures me about Capers is this quote: We are not going to ask any player to do something he is not capable of doing for the sake of the scheme."

I like the hidden statement that Capers is not going to be afraid to adjust when needed, and according to Wayne's conversation: Poppinga, Woodson, Montgomery, and Hunter should all thrive in the new scheme.

Here's to hoping.

Good stuff, thanks Wayne.

"We are not going to ask any player to do something he is not capable of doing for the sake of the scheme.”

There's trade offs to doing that. I guess we'll see if brady poppinga and johnny jolly have what it takes to get the job done

I was going to say the same thing in a round about way but chose not to.

I think my exact line was going to be, "Good, because there are some questions there."

Some classic calls by Wayne and Johnny Kerr. "Golly Wizz!"

Dom Capers is the right man to make this defense "not suck"

Right but can he turn back-up quality players (Jolly at DE and Poppinga OLB) into starters? Hell no. Let's face it they're the players on the field with the least capacity. He's going to have to create a scheme that hides those two bottlenecks. Great players-- just not starters.
