Sherrod likely goes to RT in most these scenarios folks. He played there last year when he got hurt. No need to mess up Newhouse on the left side in addition to trying to break in Sherrod into the line up when/if he is ready to go.

As long as they do not leave Lang at RT and try to use Sherrod at LG again Evil or Very Mad

Why we assume that EDS doesn't stay at LG and Lang at RT though?

It's interesting to think about, with Bulaga out for the near future, if Sherrod comes back where does he play? Obviously the idea is he is the long term answer at LT. Do you mess with his footwork and put him at RT? So many variables, Is Bulaga coming back this year? Is he ever coming back? How healthy is Sherrod? How much do you trust him with the blind side? Do you want to mess up the continuity of the line? Lotta questions to be answered. Personally if Bulaga is done for the year and Sherrod is healthy, I go Sherrod-Lang-Saturday-Sitton-Newhouse.

This year: Newhouse-EDS-Saturday-Sitton-Lang
Next year: Sherrod-Lang-EDS-Sitton-Newhouse (Bulaga if he's not hurt)

That scenario for next year is still not good IMO. Newhouse really should be improved upon if possible. He should be the next guy in. They can do better there. Again, if Lang plays well at RT and Bulaga cannot come back, leave Lang there and get a G that will improve the point play that is so lacking in the run game. Jones or Warmack would look very good there.

This year: Newhouse-EDS-Saturday-Sitton-Lang
Next year: Sherrod-Lang-EDS-Sitton-Newhouse (Bulaga if he's not hurt)
All depends on who is healthy. Damn problem is, even if Sherrod is healthy we all saw why he was at pick #32, he needed lower body work and was simply over powered at points. For me it all boils down to who the best LT is. We know Sherrod is (hopefully) the future at LT, is he ready now? The line is already a mess and has funked up continuity so making changes now is not as big of a deal IMO. With how shook up it is, you have to evaluate who the 5 best are, and set that line up.

No one is assuming that. I stated "as long as they do not put Sherrod at LG"....you must not have read that part as communicated.

Lang is going to play through his arm problems all year. He suffered the injury vs Indy and put a brace on it. I haven't seen anything on Bulaga.


I heard from a friend of mine that Bulaga's might be career threatening. Although I'm not sure where he heard it though. Might be heresy, but from the news that he was seeing a specialist on hips, not sure that's good news...


JESUS. Does this guy have any inside scoop or is he just saying that based on similar injuries. Cause I think Joe Buck was saying the same thing when Bulaga first went down...

Well I don't have inside sources at Pack HQ anymore. But i do scour everywhere for info and haven't heard anything that would suggest Bulaga's injury as career threatening.

Probably what the poster is referring to was someone made a comment out there that bulaga's injury was similar to Bo jackson's.

I don't like going down this road, but don't lose any sleep guys. I was told by a very credible source that Bulaga's injury is NOT career threatening.

Good chance they will move forward with the line they ended with this past weekend. EDS is not going to move the pile at guard but he will come looking for a fight each snap. Lang grades out every bit as well at RT as he does at LG. Move might even help him with the elbow. He is not Bulaga but I don't look for a big grade drop at position. IMO, the impact of Bulaga's injury will be felt in the run game far more than pass pro.

Doubt much has changed in the eyes of the lead brass long term. Good chance Sherrod will still get his long look at LT when the time is right and EDS might earn the same look at center if he comes to play here.

Truly think we are fine for now. If another one goes down though I'm just not sure the depth is ready.

Here's a question- On another board someone was saying Van Rotten has played center before. Anyone know anything on this and if he could an emergency or down the road option for the future?

Agree with you Palmy that we are alright for now but if a guy went down could be scary.....best case would be that Sherrod can be healthy enough to stick and not need to be placed on IR this year. Though not the best yet, he would be the best of the option behind this group would think......and give them some flexibility.

Good chance they view Van Rotten about the same way they view EDS. That's his game all day long. Could have a long future in Green Bay pending how the board falls on draft day. If EDS moves into that starting center gig, they are going to need that gameday "up" as a interior swing. Just like EDS though, if he gets a shot to be a starter in the NFL odds are very high it will come at center.

Bye week, so no practice, so no practice reports (either by reporters or to the NFL) so some people are going to assume the worst.

Is it safe to say Kuhn, Jordy, Shields, and Worthy will all be ready to go by next weekend? Also safe to say Jennings, Woodson, and Benson should be back atleast by our week 15 match up vs Chicago? I know the luck being displayed here but if everthing goes to plan those are some reasonable time-tables to return I would think. Throw Sherrod and Clay who will hopefully be back before Giants game and we got ourselves a solid squad!
