I sorta agree about the article because it over-emphasizes the right to left switch. The title, however, is very valid. Bulaga stunk last year before the injury - at least before it was publicized - for no known reason. Hell yeah, he needs to make a great leap - back to 2011 form anyway. THAT was my #1 on that thread of things of importance for the upcoming season.

My main point was the article was mostly just "Hopefully Brian Bulaga plays well next season!" Didn't seem to have much substance or insight, rather just stating an almost rhetorical point. Perhaps I'm being too critical though.

I'm not a big fan of Bulaga but hopefully he will be better than Newhouse who I'm definitely not a fan of.
This whole offensive line debacle that TT, Mike McCarthy and Campen can't get squared away is frustrating.
We have the best QB in the game and a shithouse offensive line to protect him.

With Aaron Rodgers behind center, any left tackle that is just average or below is not good enough.

When fully healthy, I think Bulaga did VERY VERY well. My question is he healthy, will he stay healthy and can he handle the quickness/speed of that side.

But as long as he stays healthy, I'm still feel more comfortable (as of right now) with Bulaga at LT than whom ever the RT will be.

Newhouse has flashed potential and at times has surprised how well he's shut down a guys first attempt, but at other times guys have seemed to go right around him. And honestly the thing that bugs me the most, is the second and 3rd attempt efforts.

Newhouse vs Jard Allen was a bit annoying for me to watch, Newhouse at times would surprise me and be able to get to Allen and his speed/quickness and stop him with no problem on the first attempt which is suppose to be the hard part. Then Allen beats New House on the second attempt for no other reason than Newhouse let his guard down and Allen got up and kept rushing. He just gave more effort, it wasn't because of talent or an awesome trick or move... just second and third effort.

Barclay, Barclay needs some help in pass protection (at least as a rookie) because he's not quick/fast enough to protect from the speed rush. But once he locks on he normally shuts the guy down pretty well not always but good enough by locking onto the defender and his run blocking is pretty to very good.

Barclay reminds me of poor man version of Mark Tauscher... though I have to be honest, I don't remember Tauscher rookie year well... and therefor don't feel like I can compare apples to apples on that to say Barclay could grow to be as good as Tausher, but if I had to guess right now, I'd say Barclay could become a better run blocker (if he isn't already), but won't be as good of a pass blocker than Tausher. But again that's purely a guess.

If Barclay doesn't earn the starting RT spot, I wouldn't mind seeing him get a shot at RG.

And Mike McCarthy said Lang can play Center, (and Barclay has practice at Center though I've heard he puts one into the dirt every so often) and let those 3 compete for C and RG.

I don't see why this is such a big question.

Bulaga's played LT before. He can get it done. I like our OL. Looks like we might even have some decent depth, despite Campen breaking the leg of our new C on the first practice of spring.

I echo some of these thoughts. Bulaga gets a bad rap because of one-half of football against Seattle. Beyond that half, he's been a rock solid player for this organization since 2011. The tape bares this out.

My worry, however, is that you're taking a very good right tackle and exchanging him for an average left tackle. Baltimore did this with Michael Oher, who didn't have the technique or quickness to play the left side. It stunted his growth and he hasn't been the same player since (on left or right side).

Bulaga has the intelligence and technique to play the position, but I'm not sure the natural ability is there. I worry the Packers are taking him down the same path Baltimore did with Oher.

The only reason they moved Bulaga to the right side, was because he had shorter arms than Sherrod.

Bulaga doesn't even make my list of worries about this team.
