For there to be a Super Bowl for Patrick Lewis and Greg Van Roten, first there must be the Green Bay Packers’ exhibition finale Thursday night against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.


Lewis goes to PS this year and he could bump GVR next year.

I have both players being kept on the 53.

I'll add that Lane Taylor also makes it. We should be keeping 9 OL this year, as the battles are indeed won in the trenches. We are looking to emphasize the running game. All the more reason to bring the beef!

Today I would say Van Roten would win the spot.

After tonights game that could change, that is how close this competition is.

With the way other positions are panning out, I see The Packers keeping 8 O-lineman at the most, they might even try to start the year with 7.

They keep 8 and I will give the nod to Van Roten as #7, then there will be a battle between Lewis, Taylor, Datko, Gerhart, and Hughs for the 8th spot. Lewis would be my choice for #8.

With Ted keeping 2 more on the PS.

I know its a risk cutting these guys and hoping they clear waivers, but it has came time where tough decision need to be made, and I really don't think any that are cut will have any problem clearing waivers, these guys are much more valuable to The Packers than any other team.

Been fun trying to figure this all out, Saturday can't come soon enough.

7 linemen seems like it would be too few. That is only 2 backups. Granted most of them can play more than one position but with the injury history in GB that would make me very nervous. I can not count on anyone being on the PS 3 weeks into the season.

I think both make it as well. When Sherrod comes back, the discussion gets more interesting.

Derek Sherrod comes back game 8 and saves the season by solidifying the LT position which hampered the Packers to that point. SUPER BOWL BABY!!

The Packers started last year with 7, usually it is 8, this really comes down to how many Defensive players and TE's They decide to keep.

Some reports have The Packers keeping 10 db's, which given the injury situation, that doesn't seem to far fetched.
6d-lineman, 9 lbr's, 10 db's............................25

3 sp team.......................................................03

2 qb's. 5 rb's/fb,5 wr's,5 te's..........................17

That would leave room for 8o-lineman...........08

Problem being, I see 7 d-lineman being kept, but only 4 te's, that still leaves room for 8.

Packers decide to go with 10 lbr's to start, that might force them to keep only 7 o-linemen to begin the season.

C'mon Saturday!!!!

I understand. Sherrod is a wild card in the whole issue but I think they may feel more comfortable if they have 8.
