Most of Packers Offensive Line Under Scrutiny This Offseason

Packers offensive line

With the way the Green Bay Packers offensive line performed during the 2009 season, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that three of the five spots are likely to be in flux this offseason. Chad Clifton’s left tackle spot was a weakness for most of the season and right tackle was a major problem until […]

Yesterday, we took a look at five reasons not to be excited about the Green Bay Packers, making the argument that the team has major flaws that may haunt them down the stretch and into the playoffs. That said, we fully expect the Green Bay Packers to make the playoffs. However, this isn’t a team […]

Packers Getting Healthy, Stronger

The Green Bay Packers will enter this week’s game with the San Francisco 49ers the healthiest they’ve been since early in the season. The team was buoyed this past week by the return of receiver Jordy Nelson, who had been out since week four. Expected to return from injury this week are linebackers Aaron Kampman […]

The Allen Barbre Experiment Has Officially Concluded

It looks like the days of Allen Barbre as a starting right tackle for the Green Bay Packers are officially and mercifully over. Barbre was replaced by recently-resigned veteran Mark Tauscher in the lineup last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Unfortunately, Tauscher went down with an injury shortly after halftime of the Bucs game. […]

It Doesn’t Take Much to Get to Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers gets sacked - big surprise! Photo: Evan Siegle

Seriously. It doesn’t take much to get to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Of the league-leading 37 sacks the Packers have given up this season, only six have been recorded when opposing teams blitz. That’s only 16 percent. In other words, the recipe for shutting down the Packers offense is pretty simple – send […]

Signs Point to Clifton and Tauscher at Tackle

After Aaron Rodgers was sacked six times against the Minnesota Vikings, it was no surprise to discover that the Green Bay Packers might be considering a change on the offensive line. That change now looks likely, with Mark Tauscher replacing Allen Barbre at right tackle and Chad Clifton replacing rookie T.J. Lang at left tackle. […]

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 […]

Chad Clifton: Cheater

Remember when Green Bay Packers left tackle Chad Clifton got called for two penalties for not lining up on the line of scrimmage against the Detroit Lions, last Sunday? Evidence suggests Clifton has done this before, and may have been doing it for a while. I’m sure the Packers, their fans and Clifton will take […]

Time to Turn Left Tackle Over to T.J. Lang

Green Bay Packers left tackle Chad Clifton almost made it through an entire game on Sunday before hurting his ankle. He almost made it through the Packers September 20 game with the Cincinnati Bengals before spraining an ankle, as well. You see where this is going. Clifton has only played one full game for the […]

Daryn Colledge’s Days at Left Tackle Are Over, T.J. Lang Elevated

One item that was seemingly lost on most everyone outside of the Journal Sentinel’s Tom Silverstein, who mentioned it in passing, is that Green Bay Packers starting left guard Daryn Colledge won’t be playing left tackle anymore, regardless of what happens to starter Chad Clifton. Colledge filled in for Clifton at left tackle the past […]

Positional Notes: Kampman, Barbre and Raji Looking for a Fit

Aaron Kampman

We know more about this year’s version of Green Bay Packers now that the team’s first mini-camp has concluded. It has been well documented that former Packers’ defensive end turned outside linebacker Aaron Kampman has been a bit uneasy about the position change this offseason. First, he wouldn’t even discuss it. When he finally did […]

Final Word On The Packers Draft, For Now

Today is the day that everyone and their mother hand out draft grades. Well, grading a draft class immediately after said draft is bullshit. No one can adequately grade a draft class for at least three years. These players haven’t been on the field yet. They haven’t seen the playbook. They haven’t met their teammates. […]
