    I can't believe that Daryn Colledge isn't a top player. I loved him coming out of Boise St. and I thought he'd be a top giard at the very least. I know he was considered light in the weight department, but his athleticism was supposed to be his strong suit. Spitz I like alot, but you can see he is playing out of position at OG. With that said though, I always thought that OG and Center went basically hand in hand. A good guard could always be a good center and certainly a good center could play a good guard. But I guess I was wrong.
    Colledge has actually been pretty good playing left guard. He's had to slide over to LT though with Clifton out and isn't having the same success. Spitz isn't really playing out of position. He had been a guard his whole career until this year. Spitz and Colledge have become decent starters. The biggest problem right now is that Clifton is out. He's our one high quality lineman and he plays the most important position. When healthy our left side isn't bad at all with Clifton-Colledge-Spitz. It's our right side that was killing us. Now with Clifton out both sides are killing us and it's one of the worst lines I have seen. When Clifton is healthy we had been giving Barbre help on the right and would still get killed. Now with both sides being weak we can't help out both and that leaves no time for Rodgers.

    I feel comfortable with Colledge and Spitz as long term starters. The problem is that we still have no one at RT and Clifton is old and will need to be replaced soon. Sitton hasn't been too impressive either and could definitely be replaced.

      Yeah, Cam Wake had a pretty good game. Haven't heard much about him until this very moment.
      lets just first two years in the cfl = 39 sacks.

      edit, including playoffs 46 sacks, 10 ff. he was a man

          Oh yes, of course. I meant more so since he signed on with the Dolphins. Personally didn't hear too much about him in the preseason and up until this point in the regular season.

            The Packers' offensive line makes the Steelers look like Hall of Famers.

              Could've had Michael Oher...
              The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                  To even be mentioned in the same sentence with the Raiders '06 line means your bad, but I don't think the Packers line has quite reached that point.

                    Ogunleye was in Rodgers face every play. Ogunleye.

                      I still have nightmares about the Raiders in '06. It was a jailbreak as soon as the ball was snapped, every time.

                        He didn't get cut. He was claimed off the practice squad by the Bills. Not to mention word it the Packers actually tried to offer him a spot on the 53 after the Bills made a claim for him and he decided to leave anyways.

                          Whoever was blocking Jared Allen Monday night was completely flummoxed, the ESPN analysts said he devoured the GB O-linemen.

                          Subtract the sacks on Rodgers & GB would've won the freaking game. The Packers are bleeding to death through these holes in their o-line.

                          Cincy Bengals: Antwan Odom (DE)- 5 Sacks
                          Homer adulation here for Crimson Tide pass rusher specialist DE Odom, who had the quickest 1st step I had ever seen when he played at Bama. With 5 sacks he was closing in on the single game sack rcd. held by Derek Thomas, KC Chiefs, coincidentally also a Bama player, set vs. Seattle, I think it's 7.5 or 8 sacks the late HoFer Thomas got in that game.

                          You would've thought they could get a TE or FB help for the hapless OT blocking Odom in that early game, that 5-sack game should have been a wakeup call for the GB staff. Instead of fixing it, it's now at critical mass & a game to game crisis.

                            They are terrible but I will not discredit Jared Allen for having a great night.

                              I swear, I bet all Texans fans that watched last nights games were having nightmarish flashbacks of David Carr running for his life in his first 3 seasons..LOL Thats how bad the Packers line is right now.

                              The Packers are such a good team, it's obvious what is losing them games, unless they play inept teams like the Rams the rest of the year or play nervous nelly's like Jay Cutler and his dumbfounded recievers they are looking at a 8-8 record at best.

                              I guess on the bright side that would give them a shot at the 2 best OT's in the 2010 draft.

                                Alot of this is McCartney's fault. Do some max protect. Leave guys in to block.

                                I understand he likes spreading the field with his WRs, but when you lose both your OTs, you gotta adjust.

                                I LOVE McCartney's playbook, but he needs to adjust in these situations.

                                Also, having a RB who isn't doodoo would be nice too.
