Transition from Bryan Bulaga to T.J. Lang at right tackle hasn’t gone smoothly
I, a blogger who knows more about F. Scott Fitzgerald than Larry Fitzgerald, saw this coming months ago. How one of the best GMs in the National Football League didn’t is mind-boggling. From the time the 53-man roster was set in early September, the Packers were playing with fire on the offensive line. Well, the conflagration finally hit on Nov. 4. That’s the day Bryan Bulaga went down with a serious hip injury. It’s also the day the chances of Green Bay winning Super Bowl XLVII may have gone up in smoke.
I hope I’m wrong, but I see no way the Packers can get to New Orleans with Evan Dietrich-Smith at left guard and T. J. Lang at right tackle. EDS, as I’ve written over and over the past few years, is nothing more than a third center or fourth guard. Going into the season with him as the No. 1 backup at three positions was foolish. He has neither the size nor the athleticism to match up with the better def...

Don Barclay, the Packers wrestling jobber.
There’s been some scuttle about the Packers moving T.J. Lang back to left guard and trying undrafted rookie Don Barclay at right tackle.
(Editor’s Note: This article was actually written before this week’s game against the Vikings but never appeared due to a scheduling issue.)
Lang has floundered since moving to tackle after Bryan...
Here is a quick wrap up of the game between the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings. Look for more analysis this Tuesday.
Summary: The Packers used a shutdown second half to carry themselves to a 23-14 lead. The Vikings didn’t score in the second half and quarterback Christian Ponder threw two interceptions. The Packers used an 11-minute drive, which ended in...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Jermichael Finley is tired of getting in trouble for comments made in the media. So, the typically outspoken Packers tight end tried a new approach following the 23-14 win Sunday over the Minnesota Vikings.
Finley, who has talked openly over the past year about his lack of chemistry with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, caught six passes for 60 yards against Minnesota...
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson limped into the locker room of today's game against the Minnesota Vikings with an apparent leg injury.No word yet on his return.This is the second time this season that Nelson has felt the injury bug.The Packers lead the Vikings 10-0 in the first half.UPDATE: It appears to be a hamstring injury, and Nelson's return is questionable.
Packers receiver Jordy Nelson left Sunday's game against Minnesota with a hamstring injury.Fantasy Spin:He's questionable to return. Green Bay has plenty of depth in the receiving corps so this injury shouldn't affect Aaron Rodgers' performance too drastically.
So in an effort to forget about the Packers dismal showing against the Giants, I instead decided to analyze something completely different, namely the first and only pass that one Graham Harrell has thrown in the National Football League. Some of you might know but Harrell was the only backup quarterback in the NFL who had never thrown a pass in a game (though it has to be said...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For the Minnesota Vikings (6-5) to make the playoffs this season, they'll need to win at least one of their two upcoming games with the division-rival Packers (7-4). The first of those two NFC North showdowns is Sunday at Lambeau Field, with both teams' regular-season schedules concluding four weeks later in Minnesota.
"I want to go ahead and control...
The Packers continue to try to find ways to protect Aaron Rodgers, with mixed results. Enter Jared Allen and the Vikings.
Hot News for WR Greg Jennings
The Green Bay Packers are playing without Jordy Nelson once again.
The wide receiver is questionable to return to Sunday's matchup against the Minnesota Vikings after suffering a hamstring injury.
Fox's Pam Oliver reported that the Packers would not say if it was the same hamstring injury that cost Nelson two games earlier this season.
Nelson was hurt Sunday at the...
Not only was rookie free agent Don Barclay not a liability when he replaced T.J. Lang at right tackle, his rock-solid performance helped get Green Bay’s running game jump-started and kept quarterback Aaron Rodgers mostly upright.
Aaron Rodgers was aided by a good running game while the Vikings had nothing but Adrian Peterson. With the Packers pitching a second-half shutout, they beat the Vikings 23-14 and stayed right in the heart of the playoff race.
GREEN BAY, Wis. Assessing the Packers' defensive performance in their 23-14 win over the Minnesota Vikings depends greatly on how a team values each statistical category. Allowing 210 rushing yards to Adrian Peterson is about as bad as it gets, but with that production being coupled with only 119 passing yards, while giving up just 14 points and forcing two key interceptions...
