The Barbre Mystery Continues

The Barbre Mystery Continues

Even with Wells out again with a 'trunk' injury (what the hell does that even mean?) Allen Barbre can't lock down a guard spot, having once again split time with Daryn "Alphonso Boone Is My Daddy" Colledge at this mornings practice.

This is getting ridiculous. Barbre was touted by McCarthy all offseason as someone who the organization thought was going to make a big jump this year, someone they thought so highly of there was no need to navigate 'the dangerous waters' of free agency, even armed with a stupid amount of cap room and the mother of all catches available for the landing in Alan Faneca.

But instead of naming Barbre the starter, they have fooled around with his splitting time with Colledge, who has pretty much proven that he will be adequate right up until he gets his quarterback killed on one of his horrible, once-per-game lapses in pass protection. Now, they have become overly enamored with a rookie on the right side, but have declared that former right side starter Spitz is too good to be on the bench. So Barbre, even though he has played well throughout camp, and absolutely pummeled people during the Bengals game, sits on the bench while Spitz is doing his best Daryn Colledge impression.

Start Barbre. Let Spitz and Sitton battle it out when Wells comes back. Enough of this.

I seriously have no idea what is going on either. Barbre has looked just as good as the rest of the guards but for some reason the Packers don't want to even give him a chance of winning a roster spot. They have claimed it has been an open competition for the job but it doesn't seem like it to me. At this point it also seems like the Packers have settled on Sitton and Spitz as the starters. Its good to see the Packers finally settle on a starting offense line but I personally don't think we chose the right offensive line. Hopefully with more time playing together the offensive line will play much better than they did against the 49ers.
