Cornerback Problem?



The Ravens game last night was a disaster for CB Tramon Williams and his insistence on using an illegal arm-bar technique is going to sink the Packers when he is matched up against a competent. If the playoffs were to begin today the Packers would be matched up against the Arizona Cardinals, a nightmare match up for most secondaries but with Al Harris in the line up this may not have been a problem. Having Tramon matched up against Anquan Boldin and having Jarrett Bush matched up against Breaston would spell imminent doom for our secondary. The Packers must explore options at corner like the Saints did. After the jump I will examine the limited options the Packers have.

The only real option that could potentially get a short term upgrade at the position is to look for a serviceable veteran such as the Saints did with Mike McKenzie and Chris McAlister. The list of veteran cornerbacks is long but after sifting through the garbage I have found a few names that would make sense for the Packers to, at the very least, take a look at:

Fakhir Brown

Daven Holly

Sammy Knight

R.W McQuarters

Patrick Surtain

I know these guys are all similar in terms of age, (except Holly) speed, and time out of the game but if the Packers would like to contend it is probably necessary that they get a proven back up, even if it does not mean taking Tramon out of the lineup. If Mark Clayton can force as many pass interference penalties as he did last night imagine the Packers going up against the Saints, Cards or even the Vikings without a viable option at nickel or dime back.
