at least Spitz is a decent backup and Sitton looks like he can start at the G for Spitz

PS Damn Ted Thompson and his creating depth! He should have traded for Randy Moss, then Spitz could still play guard, and Randy could fill in at center until Wells heals up.

What is this trunk injury all about and are they saying it's on both sides of his back now?

Unless those guys start performing, you can't really say we have depth. Every team has backups, but just having bodies doesn't mean you have depth.

it was one crappy game. I'm talking about what they showed me last season, and what the coaches have said this pre-season. I refuse to throw out everything i know about our OLine due to one awful performance.

I don't want to sound too much like a Mr. Excuse Excuserson, but the Packers were also dealing with a short week against a style of defense they don't normally face. The team was not as prepared as they would have liked to be, and that can be put on the coach as well. I am sure they also did not expect to get the whole defensive blitz playbook put in their face either. I hope they learned a lot from this game.

Color me concerned. Lingering core injuries can be hard to overcome (Harrell). Wells is by far our best interior lineman. Cliffy and Taush are fantastic tackles (in most regards), but Wells and Spitz are our only average interior guys.

Not to harp on old things that we can't change, but I would not call our lines of the past three years solid. Of course, Favre didn't get sacked a lot and Grant had a good end of the year, but I believe that was more a function of fantastic individual efforts and playcalling than brick wall pass protection and road paving blocking. Throughout last year, we were not good on short yardage. I want an offensive line that will give us one yard when we need it, and our percentage was not good in those situations. Grant's powerful hole hitting and Favre's quick reads, presnap adjustments, quick release, and pocket savvy should not be overlooked.

Let's hope that Wells will be healthy for the regular season, that Mike McCarthy will find the same play-calling rythems he had last year, and that Rodgers develops the same skills Favre used to deal with any line deficiencies.
