Default Kudos to Capers

Well done Dom. Wear the ring proudly.*

Of all the opinions I've gathered from his time here, I think:

1) He was a good choice to start the franchise, because he brought discipline and structure to a new team.*

2) It would have been best to plan for him to have start up responsibility, and then to move up/aside after the first 2-3 years.*

3) Coaching aside, he'd be a great guy to have at a backyard barbecue. Friendly and interesting in such a setting.*

Prediction:

This win will put Dom Campers BACK into head coaching somewhere.

It always does. It's the nature of the beast.

Must spread rep...Couldn't agree more. Dre should get it for having Pendry as his OC.

Capers was only his HC for three years. Kubiak has been his coach for five, going on six, and has produced the same amount of nothing.

Besides, as much as I love AJ, he chose to hitch his wagon to this team. He could have abandoned ship a long time ago and found a solid home with any number of winning teams. It's hard to feel sorry for a guy making millions of dollars to play a game.

Congrats to Capers. It just goes to show that the problems with this franchise go much deeper than the head coach.

So true DB. AJ is his own man. Glad he's still a Texan though.

I'm happy for Capers, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him get another Head Coaching job. For his sake, hopefully he remembers to run HIS defense next time.

I shall say nary a disparaging word about future Hall of Famer Mr. Andre Johnson.

Agree about AJ. He's the only player that I would even consider buying a jersey, and the fact that he's a Houston Texan by choice just makes him that much more special to us.

I just don't understand the hate on Capers. It is obvious at this point - 9 YEARS INTO IT - that he faced some hurdles that we did not even know about until somewhat recently: an inept owner and incompetent front office.

I'm not disparaging AJ in any sort of way. Dude is a HoF player and a class act that I would welcome as a role model for my kids (if I was ever inclined to let a pro athlete be a role model for my kids, which I'm not).

But, acting like Capers owes him anything is just plain goofy.

And Capers was his HC for three years, not five. Besides, we should be thanking Capers for drafting AJ under his watch. It's not Capers' fault that the owner had a mancrush on the pretty boy QB that set this franchise back a good 5 seasons.

You guys can give Capers his due...insofar as I'm concerned...I JUST CAN'T DO IT. You'll have an easier time getting the Blue Crew to vote for Obama...and that's not gonna happen.

AJ is having a HOF career and making millions of dollars. Do I want him to get a chance to win a SB? Absolutely.

Would I want him to do it anywhere but here? No way.

He's chosen to be a Texan and I'll therefore cheer for him as long as it remains that way

I just don't think Dom is a great HC and his hands were tied here as well. Congratulations to him it is not all his fault our team has screwed up for nine years and counting JMO.

Congratulations to Dom Capers!

He is the reason I was rooting for the Packers to win it all.

As far as judging Capers as a head coach, you can't do that anymore than judging Bill Belichick when he was the HC of the Browns.

Now, having said that, if you run down the list of starters on the Packers' defense, you won't find a slouch among them. You can have the best coach in the world, but if you don't have the players, what good is it going to do?

When Capers was here, from the day he started here, until the day he left, he handled every day with the utmost class, and he never threw anyone under the bus. Now to the fans here who ridiculed him personally, that's called "coach-speak".

But to the NFL coaching community, which is a tight-knit group, it's showing respect for the profession. Lose that respect, and you really do "lose your job".

It's too bad more fans can't try to understand that.

I think its great that Leftwich didn't win a ring. As much as I dislike the Steelers, seeing Leftwich on the sidelines listening to an iPod during the Super Bowl made me root for the Packers.

Capers with a ring, I can deal with it.

Fat Gary Coleman with a ring? **** that.

Agreed generally with your post but not so sure about this assertion. Capers has been through two HC gigs. The Browns were Belichick's first HC gig so you have 8 years of Capers with two teams to compare to one 5 year gig for Belichick. Capers is .375 in those 8 years. Belichick was .45 with the Browns.

Anyway definitely kudos to Capers.
