More Capers WAS Re: Not very optimistic.
- Some more thoughts about Dom Capers. I stopped short on my previous
post. Like I said, Capers is technically coaching the defensive backs,
but he's known for designing pressure packages. Now, the Pats did very
little blitzing this pre-season. That has me wondering if they held off
because the coaching staff came up with some new stuff. Why show this
stuff in the pre-season and give the rest of the league an extra month
to the figure it out? Why give them four extra filmed games to study
what we're doing? Why not keep it under wraps even if it puts the Pats
at a competitive disadvantage in the preseason?
