PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: 5 Guys that Have to be Good: BJ Raji

B.J. Raji

Last year when I was brought on to the team here at PackersTalk.com my very first series was titled “5 guys that Have to be Good”.  Those 5 guys were Terrell Manning, Greg Van Roten, Bryan Bulaga, Jeremy Ross and Datone Jones.  Hot.  Damn.  These players were released, released, IR’d, released and injured/ineffective respectively.  You can look at this two ways, one way to look at it is that I was right.  The team went 8-7-1 and had holes at all of the positions that these players played especially return man and inside linebacker.  The other way to look at it is that I should probably never write a “5 Guys that Have to be Good” column again.

The point of the series is not to list the 5 most important Green Bay Packers.  You can find those any where and they usually consist of some variation of Rodgers, Matthews, Lacy, Nelson, Burnett and/or Peppers.  These are the guys that we’re not 100% sure about.  Guys that need to step up and develop if this team is going to reach its ultimate goal of bringing Lombardi’s trophy back home.

This year’s series starts with BJ Raji.  It’s actually unbelievable how important it is to this team that Raji regain some of his 2010/2012 form.  If Raji can regain his dominant form of 2010 the defensive line could be truly formidable.  Mike Daniels is developing into a Pro Bowl caliber player and the chances are that someone from the Datone Jones/Jerel Worthy/Khyri Thornton scrum will be an effective player too.  The Packers are more than talented enough in the secondary now that if the front 7 can create pressure (especially with 5 or fewer rushers) the pass defense will be above average.

From The Benches: All Time Packers

From the Benches Packers Podcast

The guys are back with a new show and new content this week. They kick off the show with some news on Jermichael Finley, and follow that up with a discussion on Mike Daniels’ promise to bring a new attitude to the Packers defense.

The highlight of the show comes from the discussion sparked by former Green Bay Press Gazette sports editor Mike Vandermause’s recent piece. The guys pick their all time Packers team from 1992-present day with a couple surprises along the way.

Following a lengthy discussion the guys continue their summer conversation series discussing their favorite memory from personal experiences at Lambeau Field, all before Ross discusses the new video policy at Packers training camp in the show’s signature segment of You’re Gonna Want To Cut That.

Ol Bag of Donuts: What If???

Ol Bag of Donuts Packers Podcast

Ol’ Bag of Donuts is back after summer vacation and are gearing up for Green Bay Packers training camp. Chris and Adam bring back the popular “What if?” and first ponder what would have happened if the Packers didn’t draft Raji in 2009. To close out the podcast the guys move to a more chillier “What if?” segment regarding the McCarthy-era that never happened.

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Tight End Summer Battle

Richard Rodgers

The tight end position in Green Bay is the one that both baffles and excites me the most.  I have literally talked myself into 3 different players as the #1 contributor on the team (4 if you include Jermichael Finley).  I truly the believe the position is fascinating.  When you add in the fact that the team’s best special teams contributor, Ryan Taylor, basically has to make the team you can talk yourself into 5 TEs making the roster.

Due to the unfortunate end of Johnathan Franklin’s career this 5 TE roster is possible, but the idea that the team would be best served keeping 6 WRs muddies those waters.  Andrew Quarless, Brandon Bostick, Colt Lyerla and Richard Rodgers all bring different things to the position and I don’t really want to see any of them go.  What makes it intriguing is that I really don’t believe the team can afford to keep 3 QBs 6 WR 4 RB and 5 TE.  That’s 18/53 players dedicated to the offensive skill positions.  If you add 8 OL and 3 specialists to that number that’s 29/53.  It’s very unlikely that the Packers go into the season with only 24 defenders.  They kept 27 last year and with the mantra being “more personnel, less scheme” I wouldn’t be shocked to see that number climb to 28 or 29.

That means at least one of Matt Flynn, Scott Tolzien, DuJuan Harris, John Kuhn, Jared Abbrederis, Chris Harper, Andrew Quarless, Colt Lyerla, Ryan Taylor, or Brandon Bostick are going to be released.  God only knows what would happen to the roster if Jermichael Finley is re-signed.
