GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It doesn't require the advantage of hindsight to know that the Packers had little room for injuries on their offensive line this season. The team knew it was running a risk since the first day of practice. And for nine weeks, Green Bay got away with it.
But now, after a season-ending hip injury to starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga on Nov. 4 and the recent ankle injury to left-guard-turned-right-tackle T.J. Lang, the protection in front of reigning MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers has never been more uncertain.
No quarterback in the NFL has been sacked more than Rodgers this season, and the majority of those came with a healthy, fully intact group of starting offensive linemen.
"The sacks totals are too high," coach Mike McCarthy said on Nov. 27, two days after Rodgers was sacked five times by the New York Giants. "We've had some games where it's gotten out of hand."
Rodgers has been sacked five or more times in four games already this...

Five question-and-answer highlights:

Who said that not one call changes a season? Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said that the week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks could have a huge impact on where Green Bay plays in the playoffs, and to them it still isn’t fair.
I think that game was also a little skewed because the Packers were on fire and the Texans were a...
Time goes so fast when you’re having fun and things all going according to plan. Just think it was close to 10 weeks ago that we were dealing with replacement referee blunders and possibly the biggest blunder of all time. The Green Bay Packers remember clearly, because it was week 3 when a replacement referee [...]

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Now that defensive end Everson Griffen has been fined, the Minnesota Vikings won't be any more pleased with the NFL over what it felt was a penalty on a clean play in last Sunday's loss to Green Bay.
The NFL announced Friday that Griffen will lose 15,750 for a roughing-the-passer penalty on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers late in the second quarter...
Since their controversial Monday Night Football loss to the Seahawks in Week 3, the Green Bay Packers have been on a tear.
Aaron Rodgers has led the Packers to a 7-2 record in the last nine games and has the Packers back atop the NFC North at 8-4 on the season. But even with the terrific turnaround, Rodgers and his teammates still can’t get over the memorable “Fail Mary” pass...

Green Bay's offense ranks eighth in the NFL inside the 20-yard line but the last four games have produced some dismal results. How can that be, given Aaron Rodgers' success inside the red zone? This is a critical note considering Detroit's red-zone defense ranks ninth.

This Sunday night, the Green Bay Packers host the Detroit Lions in a game that looks far simpler on paper than it will likely play out. The Lions have just four wins under their belt, while the Packers lead the NFC North with an 8-4 record.
Having only won the four games, it's somewhat surprising that NFL football odds (click to view) only have the Lions as a one touchdown...
