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 […]

Observations From Packers 17-13 Loss To Chiefs

Arrowhead Stadium

The Green Bay Packers fell to the Kansas City Chiefs 17-13, Thursday night in their preseason finale. The game wasn’t easy to watch. The starters played only one series and veterans Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Grant, Donald Driver, Chad Clifton and Charles Woodson were healthy scratches. There were some interesting developments in the game, however, and […]

A Look At The Packers Depth Chart

The Green Bay Packers have released their first depth chart, which gives us a good idea of who is and who isn’t performing well. It also sheds some light on who is playing where. On the offensive side of the ball there aren’t any big surprises. Most notable is that Donald Lee has regained the […]

Training Camp Observations, Aug 5, Full Pads

Atari Bigby and Morgan Burnett

Here’s a quick look at Green Bay Packers training camp from Aug. 5. Breno Giacomini running with the No. 2 offense Maybe this is due in part to T.J. Lang being a little banged up, but Breno Giacomini has been lining up with the second-string offense at right tackle and even lined up with first […]

Atari Bigby vs. Morgan Burnett

Atari Bigby Morgan Burnett

When training camp opens, the Green Bay Packers will have few spots in the starting lineup up for grabs. The only totally open competition is at left guard, where Daryn Colledge will battle Jason Spitz for the starting job. There are other positions that may turn into competitions, however. T.J. Lang and Mark Tauscher may […]

Packers Depth Chart: That’s Interesting, Man

The Sporting News released their pre-training camp preview for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday and our initial reaction was, to borrow a line from The Dude, that’s interesting, man. The depth chart wasn’t interesting so much for the starting lineups, but more surprising on some of the second-string players. First, it’s important to point […]

Looking At The Packers As Preseason Favorite

Brad Jones

You hear a lot more about the idea in the national media than you do in the local media, that of the Green Bay Packers as a preseason favorite. Peter King ranked the Packers atop his preseason power rankings. Pro Football Weekly and Yahoo! Sports will declare the Packers their Super Bowl favorite in their […]

The Ascendance Of T.J. Lang Will Have To Wait

T.J. Lang

Green Bay Packers’ tackle/guard/man with no home T.J. Lang is expected to compete for a starting spot on the offensive line this season. It would be a surprise to me and probably a lot of other people if he didn’t win either the right tackle or left guard spot. But before we go and insert […]

Newhouse Could Spell The End For Colledge Or Spitz

Marshall Newhouse

I can’t say I was overly impressed with the selection of TCU’s Marshall Newhouse, who the Green Bay Packers selected with their second fifth-round pick in this year’s NFL Draft. Newhouse played left tackle in college, but projects as a guard in the NFL. With Josh Sitton entrenched at right guard, Jason Spitz and Daryn […]

A Look At Bryan Bulaga’s Packers’ Future

Bryan Bulaga

As we sit around and wait for the second part of the NFL Draft to begin tonight, we thought it would be a good time to take a more in-depth look at the Green Bay Packers’ first-round selection, Bryan Bulaga. As I mentioned yesterday, Bulaga isn’t the elite-level tackle prospect that Trent Williams, who went […]

What Is Packers’ Biggest Need?

The Green Bay Packers have several glaring holes this offseason – offensive line, cornerback and safety among them – but I’ve been wavering as to which is the most troublesome. Offensive tackle is the obvious answer, but the cornerback position is an increasing concern on par with, if not greater than, the tackle position. The […]

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. While most of us expect him to compete for and eventually take over the right tackle spot, Packers’ coach Mike McCarthy doesn’t necessarily agree. “There’s a difference […]

Tauscher Deal Reportedly Close

Word out of Green Bay is the Packers are close to a deal to resign veteran right tackle Mark Tauscher. “I feel Mark Tauscher is definitely not too far away, and hopefully we’ll have some news for you there shortly, and no different with Ryan Pickett,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “We’re focused on bringing our […]

Packers Top Free Agent Priority: Ryan Pickett

Ryan Pickett

Some interesting tidbits have come out about the Green Bay Packers free agent priorities in the past week. Although he’s clearly their top player without a contract for the 2010 season, safety Nick Collins is not at the top of the Packers’ list of players to resign. The main reason is Collins will be a […]
