Green Bay Packers news | Scouting report: Atlanta Falcons vs. Green Bay Packers | Green Bay Press Gazette. A big focus in this article is the Falcons struggles on their offensive line. Dave has already compared their offensive line to a sieve. The loss of free agent G Harvey Dahl has hurt them, so has an injury to C Todd McClure, and LT Sam Baker has always been shaky.

Philbin confident in Newhouse - JSOnline. Speaking of shaky offensive lineman. In his first start, RT Marshall Newhouse gave up two sacks to LB Von Miller, and offensive coordinator Joe Philbin is here defending him. And I have to say he's got a point. On every touchdown play I watched, Newhouse did just fine blocking on those plays. Instead of invoking memories of Allen Barbre, Newhouse might need just a little more experience and coaching.

Packers receivers seek elusive 'YAC' - JSOnline. The focus of this article is primarily on the receivers, but it does credit Aaron Rodgers for putting them in a position to gain more yards. The receiver deserves credit for making the first defender miss, but Rodgers does deserves just as much credit for throwing the ball to a spot where the receiver can catch it in stride or have some space to work in.

NFC North Stock Watch - NFC North Blog - ESPN. Jordy Nelson's stock is going up. I'm really glad to see that his late season surge (he didn't catch his first TD of 2010 until November 28th, but caught four in the last nine games) has carried over into 2011.

Sports Radio Interviews " Blog Archive " Brett Favre on Aaron Rodgers Leading Packers to Super Bowl Glory: "I’m really kind of surprised it took him so long." My first impression was that Favre was trying to pay a complement, and then it turned into a backhanded complement. In the end, I feel like I have to write something about it, but I really don't care. It has nothing to do about whether the Packers can beat the Falcons next Sunday.
