Mike McCarthy believes Dom Capers will stick around

After a disappointing playoff loss last Saturday to the 49ers, the Green Bay Packers need to evaluate the direction their defense is headed in under Dom Capers.

The Packers defense gave up almost 600 yards to the 49ers offense, which is completely uncalled for.

During his closing press conference, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy was asked about Capers’ future.

McCarthy said it was “totally premature to make those decisions. But I feel confident he will be here,”according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

McCarthy stressed no “knee-jerk decisions” would be made, saying that every coach and corner of the roster would be examined closely. McCarthy said he “owed” that to Capers and “no decisions will be made today.”

“I feel very confident that Dom Capers will be our defensive coordinator,” stressed McCarthy, per the newspaper, but it was less than a rock-solid vote of confidence.

The Packers’ defense has underperformed for the past couple of years, it might be time to let Capers go.
