Dom Capers' defense has slipped to 25th and 32nd in two of the past three seasons after ranking second and fifth in his first two years with the Green Bay Packers.

Coach Mike McCarthy is seeking a turnaround, but it won't come in the form of an alignment switch from Capers' beloved 3-4 to a 4-3 system.

There was speculation in Green Bay that the switch might be convenient with assistant head coach/inside linebackers coach Winston Moss taking on Kevin Greene's outside linebacker duties. There will be changes, but the scheme itself will not be one of them.

Injuries to key defenders, such as Clay Matthews, Nick Perry and Casey Hayward, limited Capers' packages and creativity in 2013. McCarthy suggested Monday that the Packers will throw a wider variety of personnel packages at opposing offenses next season.
