Anyone who observers the game of football with any regularity could see that Mark Tauscher was struggling out on the edge in pass protection yesterday. And he didn't offer much in the run game either. It will be interesting to see if the Packers start working T.J. Lang back into a rotation with Tausch.
Look, I know the theme coming from Packers headquarters is that Tauscher has 'solidified' or served as a 'calming influence' on the offensive line. But the truth of the matter is both those things happened the moment Alan Barbre was removed from the starting lineup. The guy was just not ready for prime time.
T.J. Lang is.
I think it would make a world of sense to start easing in Lang now with an eye toward making him the starter during camp next year, if not during the playoffs. The kid has all the tools and will only get better the more he plays. Tauscher, bless him, looks like he's on his last legs.
