Depends on who we play.

Dallas I think Woodson or Harris being out hurts. We saw that last year. They just motioned TO and he had to be passed off in coverage to someone like Frank Walker.

A team like Minnesota, Ryan Pickett being out hurts.

Indianapolis and I think losing Aaron Kampman as that pass rush on Manning would hurt us.

A team like Houston then Clifton to match up against Mario Williams hurts.

So a lot of this who can't we lose stuff depends on who we play the next week in my opinion.

Pickett, then Woodson.
We all saw what it was like run defense wise without him there in the preseason. We were gashed BIG time with the run.
Woodson......he's our best DB. Without him, they can throw all day.

I may be in the minority but I still think Harris is our number one. He matches up against the other's top WR and does a great job shutting them down. After the Giants-Packers game everyone keeps saying Harris is done. One game where all the conditions were in Plax's favor, doesn't erase evrything Harris had done that season. He played most of the season with a bad back and still shut down the likes of Roy Williams, Brandon Marshall, Steve Smith, and the Queens supposed savior Bernard Berrian

Harris is important, i agree 100%.
I just see Pickett as the guy that can get the push up the middle, hopefully engauging 2 guys, thus allowing our linemen to rush their QB. That would take some pressure off our DB's. If theres no pressure, that will kill us. QB's had WAY too much time in the pocket, and when they were flushed from it, they picked up big yards running.

I was addressing when it was said that Woodson was our best DB. I do agree about Pickett however Smile

I am going to say Greg Jennings. I think it is real important for arod to have a receiver he feels real comfortable with early in the season. Greg seems to be on the verge of a breakout season, if he can stay healthy. I think GJ will see much more dbl teams early in the season, rather than DD getting dbl'd all the time.

I'm going with Barnett. He's the leader of our defense. Without him, our linebacking core goes from very good to pretty average.

Per coaches and players, Charles Woodson is the leader of the defense.

Tauscher/Clifton.

With our interior line, these two have to be the anchors.

Anyone. Losing players to injury always hurts, be it just for losing depth.
I hope noone will be injured.

Have a nice day,

Can't say Rodgers? I then say Mike McCarthy. I think without him we are doomed. I'm not sure what kind of injury would keep him from doing his job, but gosh it would be tough to win without our even keeled HC on the sideline.

Either Woodson or Harris. We can not play the same style of defense with either of them off the field. I dont think the team would skip a beat if we lost any ONE linebacker, D-lineman, O-lineman, RB, or WR. There is enough depth to overcome it. But losing one of those cb's would hurt big time.

Any starter.
I think our depth is OK against mediocre teams but I don't think it's good enough for a playoff run.

I think if McCarthey had a heart attack, we'd be in trouble. I feel he is the key to the whole thing. He is a damn good football man and I am going to start sending Chilly a thank you card after each win when we play the Vikings for not getting on the plane to Green Bay 3 years ago.

We have pretty good depth, and if a key player went down things would have to be tweaked. If Clifton went down, then I would assume the tight end would line up over there to help out. If Pickett went down, I would expect a shift in scheme because you wouldn't have the space eater in there.
