Mc.all but said Capers is his guy and there will be some sort of changes on defense,so what coach or player is gone?
Now,ive read were Jarel Worthy had surgery but if it were an ACL,he could be out a long while.Thing was,the Packers didnt get the contributions from most of the youngsters they drafted last year to improve,YET, they improved for a yearly number fro 32nd to 11th,then hit on another defensive player or 2,Perry coming back,Hayward will only get better and can start next year,McMillian ( How much competition could have possibly have at U.of Maine) and he did ok this year,so hopefully next year he plays real well,Daniels should get better as well then of course there is the draft where ( Like you said,)TT can concentrate on the oline,Dline and RB.DuJuan Harris may have got himself the starting back,his job to lose.I wonder if they will bring back Cedric Benson? Ryan Grant,im not sure,they still have Alex Green and im thinking Starks is gone.Id like to see them replace Kuhn for a bigger more physical FB.
Im going on the fact Dorsey had assistance watching and learning and a replacement is in place.GB organization is finding alot of teams raiding the cupboards here.John Schneider Seattle,,last year Reggie McKenzie GM Oakland,John Dorsey GM KC this year. You are right,Ted usually takes the best player available but i can see Ted actually signing a veteran FA this off season.The Packers do have 7M but want to resign A.Rodgers,BJ Raji and CM long term so that will eat serious money and Shields is restricted and will get a nice raise.
Reading earlier.the secondary coach talking about a 4 man competition between Tramon Williams,Devon House,Casey Hayward and Sam Shields.I can see Shields starting next year,hes the fastest on the team and House had the job until he hurt his shoulder and i think the fact WIlliams just may lose his starting job next year.House is bigger as quick and stronger,Shields is more athletic and Hayward may end up better then either in another season under his belt.AP is a tremendous back for sure! but the fact Tramon Williams basically threw an arm out there and didnt really try to pop him ( Aikman commented he wouldnt want to either,if you remember),but your a corner,you have to pop him to the best of your ability and T.W. didnt.I hurt the shoulder in 11 and played like shit as he couldnt tackle well but he was supposedly healthy last year,so maybe he was gun shy,scared or maybe he just lost that certain something.He played real well during the SB run,11 he played badly with the bad shoulder and last year he did shut down Marshall with some help both games,but, struggled vs Crabtree and a few other bigger WR,so maybe a Shields/House corner combo would be cool ( if they dont draft a corner) Hayward i think will be a very good corner as well and can start next year but def. be a starter in 14 if Shields gets a ton of cash fro someone down the line.The Packers should be viable for the next few years for sure.Good call on your part.WHo on defense is gone? Hawk ( for cap reasons?) Woodson?If they want to sign Raji,Mathews and Rodgers long term the cash has to come from somewhere.Erik Walden is unrestricted,he can be gone.Brad Jones,id resign him,he plays all 4 spots.Ryan Pickett is coming up soon.Evan D-S is a FA as well i think.We can use a Center for sure! Lang and Sitton at Guards are fine.Most important we need Sherrod back at LT,he did fine while he was there but that injury was nasty and he needed surgery on 2 bones and not surprisingly he couldnt do all the drills,so hopefully an offseason of working out,physical theropy will get him back.there is also Andrew Datko who has that bum shoulder in college and needs to add strength and a year on the practice squad just may have proven himself ready and healthy,i just wonder if he can play LT.Bulaga should be back at RT and Barclay did ok but struggled abit at the end like many would expect,but,at least he proved he can play a bit and will grow as we go
