Making it to the NFL's "Final Four" has led to more well-deserved recognition for defensive coordinator Dom Capers' quality staff. Earning particularly high reviews from league observers have been defensive line coach Mike Trgovac, who has gotten maximum mileage out of an injury-depleted unit; safeties coach Darren Perry, who is credited with doing a terrific job with Charlie Peprah at strong safety; CB coach Joe Whitt, whom Charles Woodson said this week was "probably one of the best young coaches that this game has to offer;" and OLB coach Kevin Greene, an accomplished pass rusher with multiple teams who is treated with reverence by a LB corps led by PFW/PFWA Defensive MVP Clay Matthews. "They're fine men, they're fine coaches," said a grateful Mike McCarthy of his defensive assistants. "But the fit, to me, is what makes a good staff, and Dom Capers has done a tremendous job with that staff."
