The new turnstile has been installed on the packer Offensive line. You may as well paint a big bulls eye on ShAaron' back.

I didn't see the game, but from what I've heard so far, it sounds like Bakhtiari was one of the few guys that played okay. He didn't commit an penalties and routinly held his ground.''I didn't get touched tonight,'' Aaron Rodgers said.''It's nice when you're not worried about him, and tonight I wasn't worried about him. He's a confident kid. I think he's got a bright future for us.''

Perhaps the most troubling to me was that I heard Rodgers threw to Finley on 3rd and goal to go at the two and ... the "usual" occurred. I still think the best thing for the Packers is to trade him ASAP.

Any word on the severity of Datone Jones ankle sprain?

I havent heard about Jones's ankle so hopefully no news is good news..
YEP, Finley ( Fingers Finley) dropped a pass near the goal line and Marshall Newhouse whiffed on a block vs John Abraham and J.A. hit caused Graham Harrell's Fumble setting the Cards for a TD.
They could have played better but those 2 plays stood out for me just a bit more..
Now,, im thinking Barclay wins the RT job and Bakhitari has the inside track at LT,so Newhouse is a depth play which is do able.ITs not over,,not even close but it would seem to be going that way

I have NFL Game Pass so I can watch all the games.

I watched the Finley "drop" at the goaline several times. It wasn't really a drop. Finley could have maybe held on but I think the S played him and the ball very well and knocked the ball away before he was able to bring it in. I give him a pass on that play.

I don't mind Barclay starting at RT, he can run block better and is meaner. Plus Newhouse can back up LT and RT. Newhouse isn't horrible... he is just mediocre or AVG really. I am not sure Barclay will be much better as a pass blocker though.

The Packers would lose out a bit with Pass blocking comparing Bulaga and Barclay BUT, improve quite nicely with run blocking as Barclay is a better Run blocker and hopefully a better running game as a result of better backs nad blocking will help improve the passing game a bit making up for Barclay's step back in blocking
Newhouse may still be around but vanRoten made a name last night playing all 3 spots ( Center,Guard and Tackle)and the rookie from Oklahoma state played well inside according to whats been said in the coaches grading system
