GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers is not going to lose his job over one ugly game.

Even if it did end Green Bay's season.

Three days after the Packers were gouged by the San Francisco 49ers for 579 yards, coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday he will evaluate everyone on his staff but is "very confident'' Capers will return as defensive coordinator next year.

McCarthy says "it's ridiculous'' that he has to answer a question about Capers' future, but it's the head coach's responsibility to look at everything "all the way down.''
