Caught sleeping, er no?
That’s Packers Defensive Coordinator Dom Capers during Green Bay’s Wild Card loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Sure looks like he’s out, but if you don’t mind taking an alternate route with me, come along…
Here’s the context: Green Bay, trailing 24-10 at the half and 31-10 just 3:45 into the second half, has managed to close the seemingly insurmountable gap to a very manageable 31-24. Three plays later, it’s back to a 14 point cushion for Arizona.
Enter the video.
There’s Dom Capers, deeply focused on the (what is likely a trembling) voice on the other end, futilely explaining how the Cards just gashed their way into the endzone in 1:33 after Green Bay valiantly climbed back into the contest. Entirely unsatisfied with the rationalization, Capers lets out a “pfft,” complete with a body tremor (he was that mad), then frustratingly tosses his play sheet in a “why do I even use this thing if nobody’s going to execute the call?” motion.
Take that theory for a test drive:
Or he was just sleeping.
