“If (the record) comes in the flow of the game, awesome,” Rodgers said on his weekly radio show. “If not, you get to the 2-minute warning, James had a great run for a first down, and you kneel on it three times. That’s what you do.”http://espn.go.com/blog/...-on-his-record-tying-dayhttp://www.620wtmj.com/s...-the-line-224104831.html
"Bakhtiari, Sitton, Dietrich-Smith, Lang and Barclay are a balance of experience and youth.
A lot of youth.
The very young twin B's are also twin offensive tackles, and they've had to face some of the toughest pass rushers in the game - guys like Aldon Smith and Ryan Kerrigan.
Aaron Rodgers has been slammed to the turf six times with the football in his hands - a pace of 48 sacks, slightly below his 2012 total, but still not the desired level of protection.
How do you solve that? Take the pressure off arguably the game's best player.
You can do that in many ways, the most obvious being solid pass protection.
But there's also getting the running backs involved with the running game and through screens, but especially with the ground game.
Notice something about what happened after James Starks got lathered up in the Washington win.
What did he do? Gain 132 yards, 130 after his first series on the field. What did the Washington pass rush do after Starks's first series? Produce just one sack the rest of the game, and none until the score was 31-0.
(They'd sacked Rodgers three times beforehand, including Starks' first series.)
Certainly, lots of credit should come to Starks for that dominance.
But so much of it also belongs to the offensive line that turned Washington to mush.
Bakhtiari, Sitton, Dietrich-Smith, Lang and Barclay did the blue-collar dirty work that let the Packers have a record-setting day.
If they do their job all season long, just think of what the Packers' offense could do.
It is not out of the question to have five Packers players gain 1,000 yards from scrimmage this year."
