The first three weeks of the season are in the books and the Green Bay Packers have the week off. With the team on their bye, this is a good time to take a long look at how each position is fairing so far this season.

Granted, it’s still early and plenty of things can change when the Packers return from their break, so take the small sample size of football we’ve seen so far from this team with a grain of salt. Here are our early season grades for the Packers offense.

Ten sacks in 3 games.
Very disturbing, the OL grade is too high in my book.

That's pretty accurate. I'd rate the TEs slightly higher, as Finley has improved, Quarless has been decent, and Taylor has actually shown something receiving. My gut feeling is that C+ is too high for the O Line, but they have to get some credit for the good rushing stats. The O Line is still borderline pathetic at pass blocking, though. A- for Aaron Rodgers would be A for anybody else; It's just that he has been slightly off from his usual super standard.

Jermichael Finley is a freaking beast. Why is that so hard for some to accept? GET WIT HIT!

I tend to agree, but then I see somebody like Antonio Gates at 30 something, after numerous injuries, and with a lesser QB, and Finley doesn't seem quite so beastly.

I would say with the loss of Bulaga and having to switch the Tackles around that they have done about as good as I would expect. This has now gone from what appeared to be a solid move with the way Bulaga was playing to a work in progress so the good news is I expect there to be improvement as the season goes on.
I had actually put how Bulaga performed as the #1 key to the Packers starting out the year. So I'm cutting these young guys some slack early.
