Green Bay Packers LT Chad Clifton hurt again; rookie T.J. Lang takes over
The Green Bay Packers could be playing a stretch of games with rookie T.J. Lang at left tackle, protecting quarterback Aaron Rodgers' blind side, after Chad Clifton reinjured his right ankle during a 26-0 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Clifton had four penalties Sunday. At least two were mental errors. Sadly I would still want Clifton over a rookie, but I will hope for the best.
It will be very nice to have Tauscher back, but he has his work cut out for him!!!!

This can be a positive. Best case scenario: The Packers find an outstanding new left tackle. Worst case scenario: Lang is horrible and costs the Packers games. However, if the worst case occurs the Packers gain the knowledge of what Lang is capable of. Most likely, it is somewhere in between the best and worst case scenarios, and Lang gains some valuable experience which may help the Packers at some point in the future.

The nice thing about rookies is that want to prove they can play in the NFL and will work extremely hard. The bad thing.....they can make costly mistakes when it matters the most. I am not getting my hopes up, TT has proved he is not very good evaluating O-line talent.
