David Bakhtiari

The Bakhtiari Dilemma

The last quality young starter to leave the Packers as an unrestricted free agent was offensive lineman Mike Wahle in 2005, so the odds are pretty high that left tackle David Bakhtiari will be re-signed before he’s eligible to hit the open market next March. But considering his level of play and the price it

Tackle Can’t Be Ignored Again

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.

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. SEA

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 10 additional thoughts from yesterday’s game against the Seahawks: 1) Due to his lack of speed and quickness, Richard Rodgers will never be an elite player. That said, the second-year tight end proved Sunday night just

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. CHI

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 15 additional thoughts from yesterday’s game against the Bears: 1) Eddie Lacy is a much better runner than a year ago. His patience and vision continue to improve and his impressive one-handed catch in the second quarter

Help Wanted Needed At Tackle

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

Bakhtiari Kneeds To Stay Healthy

Based strictly on last season’s performance, David Bakhtiari might not be one of the 20 best players on the Packers. But because of his position, I ranked him as the fourth most important player for 2015. That’s why there’s reason to be at least a little worried when the third-year left tackle misses multiple practices

10 Most Important Packers

Aaron Rodgers is obviously irreplaceable, but he’s not the only player the team can’t afford to be without. Here’s my list of the 10 most important Packers heading into the 2015 season: 1) QB AARON RODGERS – This is a no-brainer. There’s no better player in the league, and the gap between Green Bay’s No. 1

Backup QBs Are Struggling

Packers Notes will provide updates from training camp whenever we have a person in attendance, so check back for the latest news. This info was compiled by Robert Tahan. -I like Scott Tolzien more than Michael, but his first two practices have been less than inspiring. The projected No. 2 quarterback hasn’t been overly accurate

Hoarding Money For 2017

Many fans are surprised the Packers are $15 million under the salary cap, and are anxiously waiting for general manager Ted Thompson to spend that money. Well, don’t hold your breath. With 60 percent of his offensive line (left tackle David Bakhtiari and guards Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang) and star running back Eddie Lacy

Never Too Early To Plan Ahead

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
