Packers hope the hole is filled & they dont see Aaron with his third head concussion But as we all know them holes are harder to fill then one thinks. There saying it looks like Aaron will get protection he deserves lol Looks are deceiving. Go Vikings

Typical ViQueen nutjob that doesn't know how to spell. Funny, the 'Queens have one of the worst o-lines in the league now, after Fat Mckennie spent more time at the local buffet in the offseason rather than working on his already terrible game. Who's left to fill his spot, Demetris Underwood?? LOL! Have fun at the bottom of the NFC North, chumbalone! Go Packas!

Sorry goofy, the Pack’s Oline is in good shape. Nothing in this article even mentions otherwise.
Read this if you are more interested or if you are even able to. http://www.jsonline.com/sports/packers/127810...

Rodgers does need to be more careful not to get concussed; his second concussion came while running 15 yrds downfield so that is not on the Oline, I believe the first was a helmet to helmet hit at the end of a game while out of the pocket, probably not on the Oline either. I am glad he wears the new safer helmet and hope he learned his lesson. If he does go down Flynn is still a better QB then anyone on the Vikings roster, fact.

You should be more concerned about the Vikes. Your Oline does not look good at all. They need serious help or someone is going to get hurt! It is not even funny how bad they suck. I don’t think it can even be salvaged and it sounds like it may take years to figure out. Maybe they should consider drafting someone. The Pack used a 1st round pick this year and last year.

Vikes also have major issues at WR, CBs, and Safety. Maybe LB too. They all mostly suck

Is ezg357 a prison number, or license plate, or your exterminator union number, or were trying to spell “Green Bay Packers Super Bowl Champions” again?

I believe TJ Lang wins the spot.Sherrod is the Heir to the LT spot after Chad Clifton retires or when CC is injured.Let the rookie play LT and learn from a very good vet.My problem is Lang has been around for a few years now and couldnt start over College ( former LG) so is this really an upgrade?
Maybe Lang made a tremendous jump between years 2 and 3 which is known to happen and if it did,the Packers will be in good shape as LG has always been thier weak spot ( as long as CC is healthy).Dont forget the line is only as strong as its weakest piece.GBPmies is right though.AR was concussed ( if there is such a word) x2 and both times he was out of the pocket BUT,AR has been sacked alot the last year + so an improvement is a must,So as a Packer(s) fan,lets hope we see that improvement so we can take that much more pressure off of Rodgers with a Running game and by keeping the sack total lot lower.

Obviously the Packers thought that LG is strong enough to let Colledge go. Sherrod will be given the chance to win the LG spot. It's always good to have players capable of playing multiple O-line positions.

BTW "concussed" is a word.

Thanks GBP Not only is it a word,i spelled it correctly on top of it!:)

Now,just waiting on the MRI on Mike Neal's knee.He is supposed to have the inside track on Cullen Jenkins old spot,although,there is talk now that they want to move Howard Green to starting NT and BJ Raji to DE along with Ryan Pickett so Raji can be in a more big play position.

I think it is great if they are able to use BJ in different ways. I still think for the most part he is our NT but Capers likes to mix things up and create some miss matches. BJ, Green, and Picket probably could all three play at NT. That could give Capers some flexibility to move them around in certain situations. Imagine you are the Oline coming out of the huddle and you see BJ lined up at NT, then just before you set into position he switches spots with Picket or Green and is now a DE, while Matthews is on the same or opposite side and Woodson is creeping up closer to the line along with another LB. SACARY! Could cause some lineman to miss their assignments/blitz pick ups, or at least be a bit nervous.

But still think BJ will mostly be our NT, his ability draw 2 guys and get push up the middle is probably much better then Picket or Green would do.

Mike Neal is day to day,so that's great news!Should be a fun year. Its kind of weird,If yo listen to folks on radio around here,they are banging on the Bears offense,YET, that team was in the NFC title game last year and some say thier defense may be better then last year,Detroit should make another step forward and be that much tougher.Minn,i cant put a finger on them.McNabb isnt bad,they have AP back there,2 good TE,so thier question is oline and thier defense against the run is always tough,pass defense not so much,so i believe we see between the 13 wins in 09 nd def. more then the 6 wins in 10.Ponder they say is a pretty smart kid and may end up being a pretty good qb down the road so it still remains to be seen AND as we all know,there are always those few teams that are supposed to be good or great and they end up disappointing and of course there are those handful that either overachieve or are underrated to start with,so as long as the team is prepared every week and carries out the game plan ( as long as its a good one) and can adjust they will be more then fine!
