Add Capers to Raiders’ rumor mill

Defensive coordinator Dom Capers is the latest Green Bay Packers coach rumored to be a possibility to be the next head coach of the Raiders.

Capers name was floated by the NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora, who reported Thursday the Raiders were interested in talking to him once the Packers season is concluded.

General manager Reggie McKenzie was reportedly set to interview Miami Dolphins interim head coach Todd Bowles on Friday, while other Green Bay assistants on the radar include assistant head coach and inside linebackers coach Winston Moss, offensive coordinator Joe Philbin and quarterbacks coach Tom Clements.

McKenzie worked in the Green Bay organization for 18 years before being named the Raiders’ general manager.

Capers, 61, was the head coach of the Carolina Panthers from 1995-98 and the Houston Texans from 2002 through 2005 .Caper is 48-80 as a head coach, going 30-34 as the first coach of the expansion Panthers and leading the team to the NFC title game in its second year of existence. He as 18-46 in four years with the Houston Texans.

A respected defensive coordinator, Capers is a proponent of the 3-4 defense.

The Raiders at present are adhering to their policy of not confirming interviews or potential interviews.

    I’ll answer that so you can finally shut your little trap.

    Never said he he was a great GM or that he didn’t fk up some other picks….

    What I said is you have to give him credit for selecting Megatron.

    Now do us all a favor and get the hell out of here and go promote your weak ass website elsewhere buddy!

    see post 689 that is just Easter there are many more. I can’t believe I have to explain this to you but guess what your religion is not that old as far as religions go. So when Christianity started they had to borrow ideals from other existing belief systems that were in place.

    This information comes from many different historical writings and the fact that you are ignorant to it suggests that you sir are the one that needs to bone up on the history of your OWN religion not me.

    =================================================

    Easter is descended from Passover, which is descended from the Spring Equinox.

    Christmas is descended from Winter Solstice, as are many other wintertime holidays (Chanukah comes immediately to mind).

    Christianity took these early pagan holidays and repurposed them, similar to how Kwanzaa was selected to coincide with the traditional Christmas season.

    There’s nothing new here.

    try leaving the pseudo intellectual rationalizing / bashing of deuce deuce out of this blog. i know he can ball for hisself…

    in reality aren’t we all very small insignificant beings feeling very self-important and lost in a huge universe? explain it away all you want…but when the time comes to die i hope you are right with your maker and have accepted Jesus Christ as your savior.

    not hating on you if you have or haven’t. people are different is all…

    Keeping AL saunders has become essential and I see most bloggers agree we need to keep the continuity going at least on O. As far as head coach whether its O or D minded coach he needs to be a motivator a leader of men which some say about Moss. We can’t hire a plain jane coach players today don’t respond well to those type(Norv,Wade Phillips). I believe we had that with Hue people might have not like what he said at final presser but it was the truth and IMO the players needed to hear it and needed it said PUBLICLY so they could feel embarrassed in front of world like us fans were. U know how much schit I had to hear from 9er fans about us being 7-4 and not make the playoffs while they glide in. Embarrassing.

  • mcthompso

    I don’t really think we should go after Capers as HC, or any other recyled head coach, including Cowher and Gruden. The guys have been out of the league for a few years now, and the game changes rather quickly every year. Give me a coach that is a young, cutting edge coordinator-like we thought we were getting out of Hue-just without the extracurricular BS.

    I like the discipline one of those coaches might provide, but just not the forward thinking creativity. Its not a matter of the game passing by people like Capers, Gruden, Cowher, Fisher (who is now taken), Philips. But they won’t change what the NFL is. Championship teams are ones that change the game, not just try to keep up.

  • ArtilleryShell

    Head coach give me new ideas not boring west coast every runs this offense so it’s not hard to defend

    David Shaw yeah
    Darren Perry yeah
    Recycles or Philbin, no

  • joker94583

    Capers as DC yes but no as a HC. He’s a former Marine and a disciplinarian hard ass . That doesn’t play as a HC. Just glad Fisher and his mullet wasn’t in the running.
