T.J. Lang: Packers Starting Left Guard

T.J. Lang

T.J. Lang was named the Green Bay Packers starting left guard Monday. Lang beat out rookie first-round pick Derek Sherrod and takes over for the departed Daryn Colledge. The move is typical Mike McCarthy.

Tale of the Tape: Preseason, Game One

James Starks

Shawn Neuser breaks down the tape from the Green Bay Packers preseason loss to the Cleveland Browns. Here’s what it said about the left guard competition, Morgan Burnett and the defensive line, among other things.

Lang Looks Like Packers Starting Left Guard

T.J. Lang

T.J. Lang has pulled ahead of rookie Derek Sherrod in the competition to be the Green Bay Packers starting left guard. Here’s why and when you can expect it to end.

Training Camp Observations 8-16, Full Pads

Randall Cobb

The Green Bay Packers may have a quandary at tight end, where six guys are legitimate players. That, and the team experiments with Randall Cobb, Desmond Bishop’s father makes an appearance and injuries are affecting several players.

A look at the Green Bay Packers’ Monday practice. T.J. Lang has a real shot at left guard, Aaron Rodgers is finally on the same page as his receivers, and the day’s big catches are chronicled.

Packers Bike Rides: Here’s What They Tell Us [Photos]

Mike Neal and C.J. Wilson

Green Bay Packers players riding local kids bikes to and from practice is one of the coolest things about training camp. Getting up close with these Packers has taught us things about Nick Collins appetite, Jermichael Finley’s chances of injuring himself and Josh Sitton’s hair, among other things. Check out the gallery and see what you think.

Training Camp Observations 8-1, Full Pads

The Green Bay Packers strapped on the pads and went full contact for the first time Monday night. Rookie Derek Sherrod was hit and miss at left guard, B.J. Raji looks dominant and the quarterbacks are still trying to find their rhythm.

With Colledge Likely Moving On, Bulaga Could Move To Left Guard

Daryn Colledge

The Arizona Cardinals look like they’re going to lure left guard Daryn Colledge away from the Green Bay Packers. That leaves the Packers with an interesting quandry — move Bryan Bulaga to left tackle or leave him at right guard?

Packers’ Reactions To Continuation Of Lockout

Aaron Rodgers on the lockout

The Green Bay Packers had varied reactions to the events of the past two days that say the owners approve a new labor deal and the players choose not to vote. They ranged from rational to stupid. Here they are.

Who Made It To Packers Offensive Line Workouts?

Bryan Bulaga

As we told you last week, the Green Bay Packers offensive linemen worked out together near Nashville for three days this week. Tackle Chad Clifton and center Scott Wells, who organized the get together, live in the area. What we didn’t know until today, is who actually showed up.

Colledge’s Days As A Packer Probably Over

Daryn Colledge

Daryn Colledge has never been the Green Bay Packers best offensive lineman.

In fact, he’s probably the weakest of the team’s starting five, but he had a decent 2010 season and again proved to be one of the Packers most durable players.

Packers May Have A Shot At Wisconsin’s Carimi

Gabe Carimi

Wisconsin Badgers offensive tackle Gabe Carimi was one of the best offensive linemen in college football in 2010.

The Badgers left tackle won the Outland Trophy as the top interior lineman in college football, he was a consensus first-team All American, the Big Ten offensive lineman of the year and an All-Big Ten first-team selection.

Draft Needs Start With Linebacker, Offensive Line

Clay Matthews

The Green Bay Packers will go into this year’s NFL Draft with a roster that doesn’t have a lot of holes.

The team could use upgrades in two key areas, though. The Packers still don’t have a pass-rush threat at linebacker opposite Clay Matthews and could also use help along the offensive line.

Lang Will Go If Colledge Can’t; Spitz Looks Finished

T.J. Lang

The Green Bay Packers don’t seem overly concerned about left guard Daryn Colledge’s knee injury, but if he’s unable to play this weekend, T.J. Lang would start in his place. Lang has played his way into the backup job at both tackle positions, but wasn’t previously the primary backup at left guard. That was Jason […]

Lang, McDonald Could Be Future Starters On Offensive Line

After the Green Bay Packers’ loss to the Atlanta Falcons, we were quick to point out the offensive line’s ineffectual run blocking. It was pretty clear after the loss that everyone not named Josh Sitton was struggling in the running game and the stats backed it up. The Packers showed improvement against an inferior opponent […]

Bulaga Likely To Get First Start

The Bryan Bulaga era starts… Sunday… probably. The Green Bay Packers are likely to be without right tackle Mark Tauscher, who is battling a shoulder injury, on Sunday. Bedard — who for the rest of his Packers’ tenure will only be referred to by a single name, like Madonna — says the rookie will get […]

The Hits Keep Coming: Tauscher Injury Could Be Serious

We may all look back at the end of the season and note the Green Bay Packers week four game with the Detroit Lions as the point where it all went to shit. The Packers have lost one starter for the season, safety Morgan Burnett. They are on the verge of losing another in linebacker […]

Clifton, Colledge Likely To Start

It looks like the Green Bay Packers will open their game with the Chicago Bears tonight with the same starting offensive line they opened the season with. Both Chad Clifton and Daryn Colledge practiced with the No. 1 unit on Saturday and will start barring a last-minute setback. Clifton has been battling a knee injury […]

Packers Not Exactly Dominant In Season-Opening Win

Kevin Kolb

Maybe it’s time to table the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl talk for a bit. The defense, led by linebacker Clay Matthews, was the biggest reason the Packers were able to escape Philadelphia with a 27-20 win over the Eagles. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense wasn’t close to firing on all cylinders, but […]

Packers Offensive Line Has Become A Strength

No one would have considered the Green Bay Packers offensive line a strength last season, particularly in the first half. Part of the reason was the ineffectiveness of right tackle Allen Barbre, who was eventually replaced by Mark Tauscher. Another factor was injuries. Chad Clifton missed several games, forcing left guard Daryn Colledge and later […]
