Packers coach Mike McCarthy has proven hes willing to stick with the people he trusts.

It worked before in the case of kicker Mason Crosby, and now hes applying the same principle to defensive coordinator Dom Capers.

Just as he was willing to ride out Crosbys 2012 slump and has been rewarded with four straight seasons of dependable kicking, McCarthys hoping the Packers bounce back quickly after ranking 31st in the league in pass defense last year. That means the 66-year-old Capers is coming back, despite mounting criticism.

Well, going back to the Mason Crosby comment, and obviously applying that to the question about Dom, I think its important to recognize, as far answering your question about it being easy to make that change, it would give everybody a breath of fresh air, McCarthy told ESPN Milwaukees Wilde and Tausch show. I think all of us in life have always gone through experiences in our past that you may have quit on something just to get that fresh, new start, and it feels good but in hindsight it was not the best thing for you. I know I have personally. So Ive always held true to that in my decision-making process.

Of course, the performance of the Packers defense last year, and their secondary in particular, can easily be traced to the injuries that piled up in spots.
