Man...the Packers looked bad tonight.
Yes, I know it's preseason.
4-0 or 0-4 it doesn't mean much.

The only thing I wonder is: can they just
"Turn it on" next week at S.F.?
The starters haven't been on the field
at the same time most of the "fake" games.

Are any of you concerned?

I'm more worried about Mike having the team ready on a week to week basis.

This teams' backups really have been a mess all preseason. We are not a deep team at all right now, 3 of the 4 games have all been pretty putrid.

I don't know if its them being vanilla or just not very good. I'm leaning towards the latter, because GB right now is just struggling to get a 1st down.

Vanilla vs vanilla, backups vs backups, ours is losing bad.

I'm concerned for sure.
Two touchdowns in 4 games and the #1 offense produced zero.
The #1 OL looks like a train wreck.
On the bright side the #1 defense looks pretty strong.

The 1st and 2nd string defense looked great. The only part of the D that didn't look so hot was some secondary players that aren't even going to make the team.

The offense will be a work in progress. I don't see things clicking for them until after the buy. They re-committed to the run this season and it will take some time to properly train these guys in run blocking efficiently.

I think they'll be fine. The most important guys already know the system and have good chemistry (Rodgers/Nelson,Jones,Cobb,Finley). Lacy looks like a quick study as well and he has great vision. To me Bakhtiari is the only wild card. Week 1 especially against SF is a whole other animal. If he holds up remotely well then it's game on.

I'll add Datone Jones. He is another concern to this point with what he has shown, moreso than Bakhtiari. But, you are right that SF will be an ultimate test for him, and I am certain Mike McCarthy will be building in some protections for him with a TE blocking on his side should he struggle.

I'm not that concerned, as our top talent has been pretty much removed from the fray. But, it is a bit unsettling to see they have not had regular reps together in preseason action against other teams. Makes you wonder a bit about their ability to turn it on...

Depth is tough to gauge based on schemes they've shown, or rather hidden in preseason play. I think we have some talent, but the group that is most glaring in terms of weakness has been OL. Is that scheme? Is that talent? 2s and 3s going against 1s? I believe there is some of that in play which has made all of this very hard to gauge from a fan's standpoint. Add to this we have a QB who has been in the system less than 4 weeks on O. Clearly, we've been running very basic plays with Vince Young in there, and he's done well enough to earn the #2.

I've been extremely impressed with our depth in all 3 position groups on D, and very impressed with many of our skill players on O. We saw many of our regular mistake makers making their regular mistakes. Lattimore comes to mind. Francois, for all the good plays he's made this preseason, he's made some mistakes. Moses has ahd a poor camp. Van Roten has been less than stellar. Ross had his gaffes, but showed pretty well last night. This is going to be an interesting cut down to 53.

One thing to remember about the offensive line is Bulaga, Sherrod, and Tretter likely all make the team if healthy. So that's 3/7 or 8 players that should be on the team. That has a lot to do with the depth looking pretty bad.
