After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 10 additional thoughts from Sunday’s game against the Cardinals: -You have to credit Bryan Bulaga, Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang for playing through injuries, but the three veteran offensive linemen clearly aren’t performing the way they
Fans still waiting for the Packers’ offense to come to life are going to be very disappointed. This isn’t a slump. This is the offense in 2016. That’s something Aaron Rodgers probably realizes, and it’s probably why he looked so miserable in his post-game press conference. How else could you explain the star quarterback’s demeanor
My top 12 Packers in 2014 were Aaron Rodgers, Josh Sitton, Jordy Nelson, Clay Matthews, Randall Cobb, Mike Daniels, Eddie Lacy, Julius Peppers, T.J. Lang, Bryan Bulaga, Morgan Burnett and Corey Linsley. Notice anything about that list? Of those players, not one has upped their game this season. And quite a few have regressed. So is it
General manager Ted Thompson hasn’t selected an offensive tackle in the past two drafts. It’s safe to assume that streak is going to end next spring. With Bryan Bulaga rehabbing yet again, David Bakhtiari stagnating and Don Barclay proving once and for all he belongs inside, no position on the team is in greater need of reinforcements.
Seattle is probably the better team, but tonight’s game worried me more from the minute the schedule came out in April. And my concern only grew when Kansas City improbably blew a late lead in week 2 against Denver. Why am I so worried? Here are 3 reasons: 1) The Packers are banged up. Right tackle
When it comes to the National Football League, I fervently believe it’s all about when you play a team. If that’s truly the case, the next two games on Green Bay’s schedule have become even more difficult. That’s because Seattle needs a win to avoid starting the season in an 0-2 hole and Kansas City
I understand that general manager Ted Thompson picks the best available player, but he needed to make sure the best available player at some point in either of the past two drafts was a tackle. By ignoring that position since 2013, the Packers now find themselves without a legitimate backup to starters David Bakhtiari and
The Green Bay Packers’ offensive line is set through 2016, but then things figure to get very interesting. As of now, left tackle David Bakhtiari, left guard Josh Sitton and right guard T.J. Lang are scheduled to become free agents after that season. It’s highly unlikely all three will be re-signed. So who’s the most likely to
