Did Mulligan get hurt?


I think McM said he hurt his arm.

Did you guys see that play-action stuff? I thought "setting up the pass with the run" was just a myth.


The PA to Finley over the middle was a thing of beauty. I said in the "In-Game" thread that Lacy might just become Finley's best friend. The things Lacy can set up for the TE seam routes are something I havent seen around here in a Chmura.

I didn't see the game last night (listened to TMJ online) so I'm eager to see the replay this afternoon on NFLN.

Still looking for any observations on the right tackle position. Anyone notice anything noteworthy?

Off the top of my head, Barclay got the first series, Newhouse the second. I will keep an eye on it as I watch the replay in an hour or so. I don't anyone did anything bad or good to stand out through the tv.

Much thanks. I think I could live with nothing standing out at either tackle position. Smile

The pass blocking was pretty good overall. I don't recall too much pressure on Rodgers, aside from the sack and Bak just got beat, it'll happen. I think Harrell and Vinsanity had a couple pressures, but nothing alarming. Last preseason was a joke.

Watching real quick, Newhouse gave up one pressure and Barclay two for the RT spot. Also on the quick sack from Back, Lacy was assigned to go over and chip to help out Barclay.

I only had Barclay with one though I think I left one unassigned to Long where after the PA, Rodgers held the ball for a couple seconds and Long slipped off the block.

Thanks for the info. I really would have liked to see Bulaga and Sherrod/Bakh as the bookends. But I'm guessing that will never happen now. Barclay seems adequate, maybe. But I can't help but think he's already hit his ceiling.

Still, anything that keeps Newhouse out of the starting line is a good step.

Agree with most of the thoughts in here so far. I thought Starks hurt his case tonight as far as making the team. He had a nice run, but struggled in pass protection more than once. On the other hand Green had a couple solid runs and generally seems to understand his role in pass protection very well. He had a nice reception out of the backfield. I noticed him on some special teams units too, so if I had to guess the 4 running backs will be Lacy, Harris, Green and Franklin.

Josh Boyd needs to be kept around somehow. Two weeks in a row now he's showed good flashes of potential, although against a lot of second and third stringers.

Still not confident in either kicker and would welcome Dan Carpenter with open arms.

The only way to extract value for our DL is to swing a trade with a team that has a deep OL IMO.

We could use some upgraded depth there and at safety. I think that Pickett, Raji, Jones, Neal, Jolly, Wilson, Daniels, Boyd and Worthy are all worthy of a roster spot (Worth down the road). That's 9 friggin guys. We absolutely need to swing a trade. Which is a shame because we could definitely use the depth going into next year...Would be ideal if Boyd would make the P.S. (which he would not, however) and give Worthy the year to recover and run with 7 guys. Will either be a tough cut or a good trade.

For what it's worth, they both made 21 FGs last year. Although Crosby missed 12 and carpenter missed 6. My question as well is: he's been playing in Miami, so can he kick at Lambeau in December?

Who goes then? Wilson seems the most likely, maybe even the only option. I suppose you could throw Neal in there too but that seems less likely considering the OLB experiment and lack of depth at that position. Raji, Jones, Daniels, and Worthy arent going anywhere and Boyd seems like a highly unlikely trade.

I know Pickett has value still, but with so many younger options filling the same role (albeit less efficiently) I for one would definitely not be surprised if he is the odd man out. Jolly, Wilson and Boyd is looking more and more like a very solid rotation for that LDE position.

Perhaps contract guarantees (I believe he just recently had a roster bonus) and his ability to back up the NT position will make cutting him highly unlikely but TT has made a tough cuts before and he will do it again.

I wondered this too and did some minimal research on it. For one, Carpenter played college ball at Montana, and had no problems kicking outdoors in weather there. He also seems to have a good track record in late season outdoor games. I don't think it would be an issue.

Pickett seems like the most likely tradeable guy in that rotation. Perhaps Neal as being the next most. Both guys would certainly have trade value and are both on the last year of their contract as well. I could see some teams having interest in one of them.
