No way Aaron Rodgers should play against the Chargers Thursday night.
Breno Giacomini made more than an appearance yesterday. He was a focal point around practice and McCarthy’s press conference.
I just got done reading a great breakdown by the infamous Greg Bedard about the state of affairs on the offensive line and the potential for another restructuring. Although I have faith that the Packers will write some checks today, Daryn Colledge can bite me.
I will not be so easily dissuaded, however. I am sticking to my guns. This madness—or should I say dumbness—cannot continue. Sooner or later, these guys have to get their act together and begin playing like professionals.
The other thing I learned was that Daryn College did not do as bad a job as you probably think. In fact, he actually did fairly well, considering he is at tackle only because of Clifton’s injury.
Albeit a bit bleary-eyed, I can distill the Packer’s running game’s struggles down to two major factors: Offensive linemen that aren’t holding their blocks long enough and a running back that just takes too long to get to the line of scrimmage.
In football, one rule of thumb is that you use whichever schemes are best suited to the strengths of your players. The match between the scheme and the personnel is more important than the scheme itself.
