Packers DC Capers not worried about 1-2 start

Despite his team starting out 1-2 for the second consecutive season, Packers Defensive Coordinator Dom Capers is not worried, stating that he feels confident the Pack will turn it around in an article recently published by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. 

"I think our guys know this," Capers said in the article. "A year ago we were sitting here after one of the most frustrating games I've ever been involved with 1-2, and we turned it around and won 10 out of the next 12. A lot of the guys sitting in this locker room were involved in that."

I agree with Capers that a turnaround and a winning streak this season is inevitable, but I wouldn't necessarily say this year is the same as last year. Last year, they were 1-2 because of a blown call, relatively healthy, and not having a bye week after Week 3. Also, last year's schedule resumed with a tough home game against the Saints, while this year's schedule matches them up with a team they almost definitely will beat, the Lions. So I'd stay things this season will likely be a little easier for them, but at least Capers has faith they'll do something.
