SHHH..HERE'S WHAT WE'RE HEARING
Talk about awful luck. An agent estimated that the two knee injuries suffered by Mark Tauscher - the first in 2002 and the second last December - probably cost the veteran $20 million..... Speaking of right tackles, the coaches would like to see Breno Giacomini add at least 10 pounds between now and the start of training camp. The former Louisville star weighed under 310 as a rookie. While Giacomini figures to take snaps with the No. 1s when workouts begin in March, one scout told us that he isnt close to being ready to start in the NFL..... Dont be surprised if Green Bay listens to offers for Scott Wells at some point prior to the start of next season. The coaches see Jason Spitz as a natural center and rookie Brennen Carvalho showed some potential while a member of the practice squad......



Megatron.. I clipped some of the article and added a link to the rest.. the site owner has a disclaimer.. "Copyright 2009. Do not repost articles."

In past talkings with them, they didn't mind part of the article being posted and a link back to the rest.. so that is what I did. ~Pack93z

I hope the Greene sees someone doggin it, don't care whom it is, grabs him by the scruff of the neck and headbutts him into next week sometime around the first preseason game of the season.. set a freaking attitude the it will not be the way we play ball in Green Bay.

I hope Bishop comes to camp with a awful bag of pissoffness in his pocket and starts to drill every single moving human in sight.

I wouldn't mind seeing more of Spitz at C. I think that's he's best spot as long as he stops fumbling the snap.

Also I think Colledge will be the starting RT for this season unless Tausher come back or Colledge is needed at LT.

Clifton, Barbre, Spitz, Sitton and Colledge.

I think this lineup goes down in football smarts but would be a LOT better running the ball.

I like from C to RT. But have serious doubts about the left side. And that definitely is not the area to have doubts about the Oline. A nice 1st round or FA LT would be nice.

Well, I was thinking about the current roster. I think Barbre would do alright... I think what he needs is to be throw into live game action more to learn. Clifton...... how knows.... I think it depends on how his body and mind hold up.

I think we can get one more year out of Clifton, but when he faces speed rushers like Allen, he needs tight end help this year. I don't think moving College is wise this year, which means we need to draft a big RT that can start day 1.

Next year is when you move College, but his move is to LT, and hopefully by then, Babre is finally ready to play. We are also making a big assumption that Sitton is ready to rock as well. I always worry about our O-line. If these guys were better, our offense could finally get down to it's most explosive formations.

The former defensive staff was extremely unemotional, and the players too often performed that same way.
I've been complaining about this for years.

Too true, Z2C.....too often the defense played like a bunch of buttoned down businessmen in uniforms.

I think one thing is clear......we are cultivating the "Wayne Simmons/Mike Douglass/Chuck Cecil" mentality that this defense has sorely lacked since Fritz.

About time!! Hitting others, in a vicious but legal way, can feel SO good!

LOVE the Perry and Greene hires....with, of course, Dom, leading the charge.

beast (5h) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (6h) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (7h) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (7h) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (7h) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (28-Sep) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : . Aaron Rodgers has a completion percentage of 33.3 on 10+ air yard passes this season (tied for the lowest in NFL).
