Green Bay Watch: Will the D Step Up?

Kyle Marinac: With Bulaga back will the TE's and RB's be able to be more effective in the passing game?If Bulaga does play it will help the offense from top to bottom. Bulaga is five times the player Derek Sherrod is. Bulaga is a sound run blocker and he’s exceptional in pass protection. Look how things derailed for the Packers offense when Bulaga went down in the Seahawks...

Thoughts from the bar top: Week 2 “win” vs. Jets

Pre-Game Thoughts: What’s worse: Marshall Newhouse or Derek Sherrod? I would have preferred Calvin Pryor too. Does Dom Capers wear a hair piece or use way too much dye? Post-Game Thoughts: Well, Aaron Rodgers is back – I guess. Statistically it was a tremendous performance although Rodgers barely stayed around a 50 percent completion percentage in the first half. It seemed as...

Packers Beer Mug Perspective: Scrapping Sherrod

Watching the Green Bay Packers get manhandled by the Seattle Seahawks in the NFL opener last week gave me plenty of frustrations. However, what made me the most sick to my stomach was not the 20-point loss, it was watching both Bryan Bulaga and Richard Rodgers writhe on the ground in pain. Not only was I worried that star tackle Bulaga would be lost for yet another season to injury...

Packers Should Be Proactive With Changes

One thing that has been consistent during the Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson era has been an unwillingness to adjust during seasons, and it has burned them before. So, it’s very unlikely that they will do anything drastic that I’m suggesting, but that doesn’t mean staying the course is the correct decision. Yes, it is only one game against the defending Super Bowl champions...

Packers’ Bulaga out indefinitely with torn MCL

The Green Bay Packers lost to the Seattle Seahawks last night in the NFL’s season opening game by a final score of 36-16.

Seahawks 36, Packers 16: Game Balls and Lame Calls

Well, it was every Green Bay Packers fan’s worst nightmare and it was on national television to boot. The Packers are 0-1 on the season as they fell to the Seahawks 36-16 at Century Link Field. The game was an utter disaster all the way around for Green Bay as Seattle outclassed them in all aspects of the game. Aaron Rodgers looked lost, Eddie Lacy was stymied and the defense looked...

Five under the radar Packers who are impressing at training camp

Packers WR Jeff Janis makes a catch during training camp practice on Wednesday, August 6. If you caught any of the Green Bay Packers pre-season opener vs. the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night, you might have accidently thought that you had tuned in to a live shot on The Weather Channel. A driving rainstorm, not the players on the field, was the dominant storyline throughout much...

Derek Sherrod Shows Potential In Green Bay Packers’ Preseason Opener

One of the significant injuries the Green Bay Packers have suffered so far during training camp was to versatile backup offensive line Don Barclay, who suffered a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the season. It was a huge loss because Barclay was a 16-game starter at right tackle last season and had the ability to backup both tackle and guard spots. Therefore, when the Packers...

With Barclay hurt, time for former first-round pick Sherrod to 'step up'

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Mike McCarthy believed the offensive line of the 2014 Green Bay Packers had a chance to be the best group in his nine seasons as head coach. That theory will be tested after the offensive line's most versatile player, Don Barclay, tore his ACL in practice this week. While Barclay wasn't expected to be a Week 1 starter for the Packers this season, he was...

Without Barclay, Packers’ o-line still has depth

The Packers are down a security blanket. News came out of Green Bay today that Don Barclay’s knee injury, feared by many to be season-ending, was just that. This is a major shot at the depth of the Packers offensive line as Barclay was an above average player at every position on the line. That being said, the Packers can manage without him. It appeared the Packers would be set...

Green Bay Packers lose offensive lineman for entire 2014 season

The Green Bay Packers boast one of the deepest and most talented offensive units in the NFL. One area they are not so sharp in however is the offensive line. Last season Football Outsiders ranked Green Bay’s line 26th overall in pass protection. Just imagine what quarterback Aaron Rodgers would be able to do if he had a line like Denver’s… I know, right? Well we’re just going...

Offensive Linemen Musical Chairs, 2014 Edition Round 2

A couple months ago I wrote an article listing talking about the game of musical chairs that the Packers play every year with the offensive line.  Just a recap, there probably isn’t another group of players less understood and paradoxically more diverse and similar than offensive linemen.  However with the ACL injury to Don Barclay likely costing him the entire year, I thought...

Green Bay Packers Won’t Exercise Derek Sherrod’s Fifth-Year Option for 2015

According to ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky, the Packers won’t exercise their 2015 option on offensive tackle Derek Sherrod. Sherrod, a 2011 first-round draft pick, has been eligible for a fifth year with the team since signing his rookie contract, something that obviously won’t be happening now.
