    On the bright side of "that D line," I do feel better about Rodgers eluding tubbies than linebackers :D Aaron Donald is a manimal though. Glad it's in Lambeau!

    our offensive line better be buckled up and ready to go. the middle is usually pretty stout, i think they were all a bit off today, but especially those tackles. They are a pretty weak link in an otherwise strong offense.

    The Rams will be coming in with Gregg Williams, he of New Orleans "Bountygate" infamy, as their defensive coordinator.

    Best be watching for some extracurricular activity about Aaron Rodgers.

    Are you talking about their Dline or ours? Because our Defensive front has been superb lately.

    While ours has been great thus far the Rams boast what I would call the best Dline in the league

    I think our Dline has been playing great, it's our offensive tackles i'm worried about because the Rams line is no joke. I think better than any we've faced so far.

    The Rams defensive line is a fantastic unit and with the Packers having troubles at both tackle positions I´m worried about the pass protection. The offense should be able to get some favourable matchups with either Cobb or Montgomery vs. Lamarcus Joyner in the slot or Richard Rodgers at TE being covered by their linebackers (especially as Alec Ogletree won´t be able to play this week). That should allow Rodgers to throw fast, short passes and help out the offensive line protecting him.

    I think our offense was fine, I think our play calls mostly helped them, I think our execution was fine, I think they way we helped our tackles was fine, but our tackles have been a week spot in every game this year. Last week Rodgers kept them guessing with his snap count and catching them and mostly had the guessing all game. Bahk is not strong enough and Barclay just can't move, and when he has to he's easy to knock off balance. If the middle of our line can hold up well, they can cover their weakness. If they're getting some push in the middle, Rodgers is in for a long day and our offense is going to sputter.

    The interior of the offensive line has been excellent in those two games but Rodgers mobility mostly bailed out the tackles. In addition the Rams defensive line is probably the best we´ll face all season.

    Yes I agree..but we heard how great Seattle and kc def line were...

    The end result of those two games favored us...I expect very similar reults every game

    Maybe Kuhn stays in more...maybe more screens maybe te stays in...

    But I think off will be okay..

    Just a little tidbit....the ram game yesterday was on fieldturf?? Might be a little faster on it???

    I fully expect the Packers to win the game vs. the Rams as well. That doesn´t mean I´m not worried about Aaron Donald and Robert Quinn rushing Rodgers.

    We'll win. Foles is a statue in the pocket, I see us sacking him 4-5 times and causing a turnover or two.

    Take the KC, Seattle and SF game, and I think this Rams game falls in between those somewhere in terms of us winning and margin etc.

    I'll tell you what ( Hank Hill voice) if the I line doesn't block Rodgers will be running for his life the entire game. Also must throw some screens and draws in the game plan. Packers win 24-14 but Rodgers gets sacked 5 times . The combo of Lacy and Starks will be the factor of the game.

    The early hard counts and penalties helped the O-line tremendously in both the Seattle and KC game.

    How much of that is due to Barclay? We need Bulaga back!

    Bulaga isn't much better... Yes Barclay is a little below average but none of our tackles Are that good IMO. I can definitely see TT taking one early next ye... I just pray it's not the first round.

    Bulaga is a much better tackle than Barclay.

    You realize that our offensive line has only given up six total sacks through the first four games, right?

    The Rams have a great defense, but they are ranked 26th in the league in run defense.
