McCarthy: Defense will shift to a 3-4

Posted by ESPN.com's Kevin Seifert
Green Bay is switching to a 3-4 defense. That was the word from coach Mike McCarthy, who spoke to Wisconsin reporters Monday for the first time since firing defensive coordinator Bob Sanders and replacing him with Dom Capers.

I'm tying up some loose ends on the NFC Championship Game and will get to some analysis of this move later Monday and throughout the week. But for now I wanted to make sure you were aware of this significant change to the Packers' philosophy.
