I have never heard of Ap. Packers or Ap. Bears. Are they a new apisto from north america. Must not be too tropical. Any one know what parameters they need to thrive....pH Coors or Bud, are they aggressive?

Any one have pictures of them?

I think that there is some debate here; LeBeau was Capers assistant when the "zone-blitz" was created. I googled the whole Capers vs LeBeau thing and the article that I found said this: "The 73-year-old LeBeau - who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame last summer - is generally considered the architect of the scheme and the father of the "zone blitz," even though he was Capers' assistant when it was created. He had all the experience when they first coached together - and roomed together - with the Steelers."

The same article also says: "They had some historic ideas, actually, in the three years they worked together on the infamous "Blitzburgh" teams of the early '90s. Bill Cowher, then the Steelers' new head coach, was a former Chiefs defensive coordinator. Capers had been the Saints' defensive backs coach. LeBeau had already spent eight years as a defensive coordinator. And their linebackers coach was Marvin Lewis, then a budding defensive genius who would later win a Super Bowl as the defensive coordinator of the 2000 Baltimore Ravens.
What that high-level think tank created together was the famed "zone blitz" that nearly every team in the NFL uses in some form today. It can be a particularly effective and devastating defense when run out of a 3-4 formation. That's the version Capers, now McCarthy's defensive coordinator in Green Bay, runs with the Packers, and the one LeBeau uses in Pittsburgh."

This was an online article from the NY daily news. I would say that the general consensus among most sports analysts is that Lebeau is the teacher and Capers is the student, although I would have to gather from the article that it (the "zone-blitz") was a collaborative effort. None-the-less it should be an awesome game, I can really see this going either way, but I think the absence of Maurkice Pouncey really will be the difference in this game
Liverpool v. Chelsea will be more interesting!
C'mon man!!! Go Packers! I know you're from Wisconsin. I'm from Michigan and would give anything just to see the Lions get there. I still can't get over the fact that the Lions beat both teams that went to the NFC championship game...
