    He was this season.... This season pretty much has already been "life without Bulaga".

    I will say, if we can avoid any more o-line injuries, I think we'll be fine. Lang has turned into a very good player. He looked decent at tackle even back when he was a screw-off. For two years now, he's been all business and it shows. Filling in at RT after Bulaga got hurt, he played better than I've seen from Bulaga all season. And EDS has turned into a solid player; did just fine at LG.

    Other than the depth factor I don't see the loss of Bulaga as of much consequence. I was very disappointed in his performace this year.

    Can't see how losing a no. pick to injury is no big deal.
    Add on Sherrod, Perry, Justin Harrell. We probably should just trade the pick each year.

    He may have been the weak point, and the line did look better without him, but I am scared to see the depth with him gone

    Nobody's saying that at all. What we're commenting on is the drop-off in play from Bulaga-Lang and Lang-EDS. That Bulaga has had a very rough year and that Lang and EDS have really stepped up. Nobody said it wasn't a big deal. And you're only one who brought up anything other than the offensive linemen directly affected by Bulaga's injury. Nobody mentioned anything about draft position. The comments have been positive; looking at the bright side of a bad situation. And you took it to a negative place. If that's the sense you're getting from this conversation, I don't think you're perceiving things correctly.

    The negative side of this is that we have one less lineman and really no one else to insert if anyone else falls apart.
    Evaluating the change after Bulaga went out against the Arizona Cardinals is not any convicting evidence that we'll be better. The likes of Suh, Fairley, Tuck, Peppers, Melton, Osi, are on the schedule. How can average lineman handle All-Pros.

    The hopes of our post-season and the health of our franchise QB are now relying on the precarious state of our OL! I don't want to know the names of the backups and I will be asking for divine intervention for continued good health for Newhouse, EDS, Saturday, Sitton and Lang. ;)

    Again, nobody is disputing that. It just hadn't been brought up. So while the mood of the comments have been looking on the bright side, just because the negatives haven't been brought up doesn't mean people don't see them, don't acknowledge them, or don't care about them. In fact, that people are making the effort to look on the bright side tells us that they acknowledge that there is a downside. Looking on the bright side is predicated upon an acknowledgement that there is a downside. Something bad happened, yes, we all know that. I (and I know I don't speak for just myself here) have chosen to focus on the positive.

    Not much the Packers can do at this point. Trade deadline passed and there aren't any all pros out there waiting in the wings. Hopefully Sherrod can fill the need.

    Think we can get Marshawn Lynch? If not, we'd better fire Dom Capers.
