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.

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.

I go back to the time of the Randy Moss fake moon. Flag or no flag, you LEVEL anyone who does that in YOUR HOME! When that happened, I agreed with everyone who ever said our defense was soft, because that proved we were soft. The thought of NOT smacking him to the turf still gets me peeved to this day. If you let others push you around an walk on you, they will continue to do. Just like the rest of the NFL, they seen that, they knew we wouldn't do squat about it so where's the respect?

At worst we would have gotten a 15 yard penalty on the kick off. Woopie freaking doo!!

That would be a great way of revenge. I'd love to see this, but, especially if a QB does this, you can't do anything or they'll be on your side of the field.

Now I don't want the league to turn into all kinds of battering and bruising, but they're just going overboard on this.

Anyway, I'd like to see this passion aswell. If we're beating the Cowboys, I'd love for one of our players to dance on their star or something. Might not be that classy, but damn would I love that.

Lets just get the defense actually play good first though. I read alot about teams stumbling out of the starting blocks when they go to the 3-4. Good to know that Capers', in one year, made the Jaguars from the 20th something defense into the 4th.

I do. That's why I wrote that. :p

I don't like Owens, but I do like that one moment. Amazes me how those Dallas fans forgive and forget so fast when they can get a good player though.

I was there that day... the crap fans were barking at Moss, I didn't take insult to his actions like I might have if I wasn't at the game.

One of the few times I have been ashamed of Packer fans.. racial and derogatory slurs are not needed at a game.

I don't care for alot Randy and his antics, but in that particular case there was a hell of a lot more to it than that.

I second that. I really wanted Randy Moss on the Pack. Imagine Driver, Moss, Gregorious in '07. That may have pushed us into the SB. Keep in mind, Moss broke the record in '07 with 23 TDs. I didn't expect that Jerry Rice record to be broken so soon.

Now, I used to bad mouth Moss just like every other Packer fan but all of a sudden when the rumors started, I forgave his past. :cyclopsani:

You say that as if it wouldn't be worth every nickel of the $50,000 fine. Even if it was triple that, perception that you are SOFT has a greater price.

I'm not mad or upset at Moss for his actions, not at all. If the team is going to let you embarrass them in every fashion, they deserve it. We had NO fight that day, we were softer than wet tissues off Owens eyes after crying about 'thats my qb'.


I'm upset at the Packers defense, not Moss for the incident.

But you're right. Maybe change this into a different topic or just get the thread back on topic?

On one side, I'd like to keep Wells here. He's the only draft pick, in my eyes, that has been playing pretty good so far. He's not great, but he's ok, some stability along the O-line, especially if our tackle(s) leave(s).

One the other hand, we could get a draft pick, which will maybe motivate Ted Thompson to trade for a real guard and we'll play Spitz at center, since, according to this part, he's been showing flashes of brilliance.
