GREEN BAY, Wis. -- As the weekly editions of the PackersMailbag series have shown, defensive coordinator Dom Capers has become a veryunpopular person among Green Bay's fan base.

"I mean, it's been good. Obviously we won the Super Bowlwith it. It's been around for awhile. When you're struggling you don't knowwhat to think about it, and that's anybody. That's...

Don’t forget about Randall Cobb

Randall Cobb suffered a fractured fibula Oct. 13. He is scheduled to return in Week 15. Lost in the chatter about the world’s most famous collarbone.
