Please do. Wonder if Capers gets fired after Kaepernick smoked them?

I wonder HOW MUCH he wants to stay?

January 14, 2013  01:57 PM ET

Need to Let more than Finley and Capers Go

Will he be willing to back up wanting to stay in terms of contract dollars?

It would be long over due.

I heard reports that he is willing to take a pay cut.

That's the big question... because the Packers aren't giving him a big bag of money.

As long as Rogers is not comfortable throwing to Finley, Finley will not return.

Now I'd try to catch on with Ravens, they could use a good backup!!!

Hey Finley I'd try NFC South teams after watching Zach Miller torch the Falcons D

Chances are pretty good that Ted Thompson does not re-sign Finley and instead drafts a new tight end who can actually catch and keep his mouth shut.

Agreed. They may already have that in Crabtree.

Yup. The only really good areas of the team are QB and Wide Receiver. Everything else is at best average and usually well below that. If Rob Ryan comes in and turns this defense around then I take back every bad thing I said about him because that would be miraculous.

I suspect Capers will get one more year to iron out a solid defense. If he doesn't, I would be even more suprised if Ted Thompson hires Rob Ryan as defensive coordinator. I'd expect a hot young defensive positional coach or college coach...they're cheaper and free of baggage.

That isn't his M.O... is it?

And hopefully, one who learns the plays. Rodgers has frequently spoken out that Finley runs the wrong routes and doesn't always seem to know which play has been called.

Correct.

I wouldn't want to actually have kids with her, but practicing would be nice.
