I think sometimes people hear that 'Bulaga is good' and they just repeat it. Has anyone seen the sack numbers from last year? There are holes in this offensive line. And at times that certainly was Bulaga. There is no really good player on this O line. Sitton is the closest thing...I think.

He gave up 5 ½ sacks last season. I agree that’s a lot for nine games, but at least two of them occurred in just one game. I believe two more came against San Francisco and (maybe) New Orleans, respectively. In other words, he had a very bad September, but one bad month of football doesn’t destroy his body of work.

Perhaps I’m reading too much into this, but I believe the debacle in Seattle is when people made up their minds about Bryan Bulaga. That game was on national television and had a controversial ending in which the Packers got the raw deal. Everything was put under a microscope (namely Bulaga and Mike McCarthy’s play calling).

I will concede that he took a step back in 2012. I don’t think he took a significant step back, though. After September, he was a competent player, particularly against Houston, Indianapolis, and Jacksonville. Find yourself a copy of the Ram game from last year, and watch him dominate Chris Long.

I’m going to re-focus on 2011 because of Wade’s comments.

Bulaga gave up 18 pressures in 2011. I think Pro Football Focus put this number at 24. Either way, both are very good numbers. By comparisons, Marshall Newhouse gave up 42 pressures in 2012 and 41 in 2011.

Newhouse won’t last another season in Green Bay unless he drastically improves. He’s too soft, especially as a run blocker, to play guard. He doesn’t have the physical ability to play left tackle. I guess that leaves right tackle, but the Packers like to run right, and Newhouse can’t run block.

I’m admittedly worried about the o-line because I don’t think the Packers did anything to make it better. If Bulaga plays well at left tackle (and I do have reservations about this), they still are stuck with Newhouse or Don Barclay at right tackle.
