    I haven't seen the cuts from all the teams, but what guards have been cut? This is our biggest area of concern. I'd take an older guard, who can still play a little bit, over what we have. Honestly, I think if we could find a couple of guards off the scrap heap, the offense would have a chance to be pretty good.

    They don't fit the "system".

    He didn't mention any names. So who's they??

    I'd be looking at maybe Dwayne Carswell from Denver. Some guys from Houston and Atlanta as well. I'd look for experience players that can move. I think you'll see a guard brought in but not to be a starter. We need depth just as bad and that's what will/should get brought in.

    Liwienski from the Vikings has experience at RG and LT and is a solid vet. Relax, TT won't do it!

    In case you haven't noticed, no one on this team fits the scheme!

    Ladies and gentlemen, it's negative Packer "fan"! He'll be here all week. Don't forget to try the veal.

    I can't think of anything more negitive than so called fans who are willing to accept losing and an organization that supports it.

    Yup, TT and the entire organization have collectively decided that they don't want to win.

    You can't fix this in one fell swoop, slacker.

    In the example you gave (Chris Liwienski) he doesn't fit the scheme. He's about 325 and would need to drop some weight and he's a fairly slow player. Dropping his weight right now would be hard considering the season is about to start.
