Packers Offensive Line In Flux, Lang Still Doesn’t Have A Home

T.J. Lang

The Green Bay Packers have more than a few questions along the offensive line entering the season. One of them is where second-year man T.J. Lang will play.

Colledge Not the Sharpest Knife in the Drawer

Daryn Colledge

No one is ever going to confuse an offensive lineman with an electrical engineer, but Green Bay Packers guard Daryn Colledge could take stupidity to a new level.

Predictions: Packers vs. Vikings

Total Packers takes a look at today’s Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings game and offers their predictions. Monty: Forget about Brett Favre for a second. This game comes down to two things: turnovers and pressure. If the Packers can win the turnover battle and keep Aaron Rodgers off the ground, they’ll win going away. The […]

Injuries May Help Packers Find Their Real Offensive Line

It’s been well documented. The Green Bay Packers have struggled on the offensive line this season. The Packers offensive linemen have given up an inordinate amount of sacks (25), committed far too many penalties and haven’t done much to help the struggling ground game. That is, until they played the Cleveland Browns last Sunday. The […]

It’s Time To Jump On The Packers’ Offensive Line

Allen Barbre

Or kick them while they’re down, as it were.

Duke. Duke. Duke. Duke of...

Duke. Duke. Duke. Duke of… Yes, the Green Bay Packers have been busy this offseason. Doing what? We’re not really sure.

Jarrett Bush – You’re Cut!

Aaron Rodgers sacked

From the “I Got 99 Problems But a Bitch Ain’t One” file came this past Saturday night’s preseason loss (34-6) to the disgustingly bad (5-11, last year) San Francisco 49ers. First, having witnessed this debacle first hand, I have to say, Jarrett Bush – you’re cut! It seemed each time I looked up from my […]
