Saturday hasn't been great, but I wouldn't say he's completely shit himself.

He's a stopgap.


exactly.

I don't think most teams look for "great" when they pick up a center. solid, consistent and steady are the terms that come to mind when looking for a center.
That and intelligent which is what many said of Saturday.

I read in a few places that the Packers are grooming their eventual Center. Who that is? No idea.


For some reason they like EDS, but I think they can upgrade.

I think I might have said this a couple thousand times already.. our problem is not the talent. It falls on coaching.

Not quite sure, but Sherman might want another shot in the NFL.

Best OL we've had in the Favre/Rodgers years was under Sherman. Not even debatable.

Yeah, but Favre had to wait until after he was 30 for that luxury. Kind of looks like we are doing the same for Aaron.

I wouldn't credit that to Sherman for that. The best lines Favre had were drafted by Ron and was a credit to the Ts and Gs. thank you 200 Draft.

6'5" 330 Clifton
6'6" 307 Wahle
6'4" 310 Rivera
6'4" 320 Tauscher

6'4" 319 Newhouse
6'4" 305 Lang
6'4" 320 Sitton
6'5" 315 Bulaga

We have gotten close to the size we had, after Mike McCarthy wanted to go smaller right away. I would like to assume Sherrod can come back, and play. He has the frame to play in the 330 range at LT. Either move Newhouse to LT or LG, with Bulaga at the other of those. Leave Lang and Barclay as backups. Both could probably fill in any spot except C. EDS at Center. Not sure if Van Roten can play C or not.

Would have no problem with drafting a C and another LT with questions with Sherrod but not 1st or 2nd.

Sherman actually did have a really good OL coach. Can't remember his name. Older guy with knee braces.

But if you'll recall, they also tried to move Wahle out to LT, which was a big disaster.

In fact as I recall, Bill Ferrario was supposed to be one of their guys. LOL. Totally flamed out. Tauscher was an afterthought. They just plugged him in as desperation and dude panned out for a decade. Cliffy too. Earl Dotson couldn't do it anymore, although Cliffy was a higher draft pick. Second round iirc.

Not sure what they were thinking. they swapped Wahle and Verba. regardless, it worked out in the end. Not sure itis coaching though especially with the Oline. His name was Larry Beightol. I've seen it happen to many times. Lines not doing well and an injury happens and a move has to be made and CLICK.
