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.

Had to look more into my self

Quote:
Also called the torso, the trunk is composed of the rectus abdominis, external obliques, internal obliques, transverse abdominus, quadratus lumborum, and the spinal erectors. The torso musculature works in four basic ways


but that is sort of what I knew..

Is it just me or is Mike McCarthy starting to keep injuries secret like bill belichick?

I hate back injuries because once you get one, they seem to stay with you FOREVER

Just hope he recovers hate to have him sideline half the season.

They did start performing. (camp reports were high in praise, week 1 performance)

They did however stop a bit in week 2.

I get so frustrated that because of a bad performance, we dismiss everything.


And how is that any different from last year when they had one good week then one bad week? The guards were a problem all year and the fact they kept shuffling the lineup trying to find someone who could block consistently was evidence of it.

that's true, but it's also true that by end of the year the blocking was quite good.

also true. That is a stretch. But I'm excited to hear what the coaches and scouts have to say about him. +1

Spitz at C might be a doble blessing. A bigger guy at the position and it moves Spitz to a position he is more comfortable with. Now it comes down to the play of Sitton or Costen at Guard.

I think Josh Sitton is a little more than just depth. ;-)



btw, I love it that all of our old posts are properly formatted ... can you tell?
