Legendary senior writer, Packers lead blogger & NFC North featured columnist jclombardi reviews Packers vs Chiefs preseason game & commentary.
Tentative Packers 53 roster with revisions coming for final moves & practice squad forthcoming:
QUARTERBACKS (3)--Aaron Rodgers, Matt Flynn & Scott Tolzien
Analysis: The mild surprise is keeping 3rd string QB Tolzien with injuries allowing it. The backup QB competition in Packers press & bloggers was an amusing joke comparable to their hotdog writers.
RUNNING BACK (4)--Eddie Lacy, James Starks, DuJuan Harris and John Kuhn
Analysis: RB Perkins may be on practice squad.
TIGHT END (4)--Richard Rodgers, Andrew Quarless, Brandon Bostick & Ryan Taylor
Analysis: GM Thompson won’t give up on Quarless.
WIDE RECEIVER (5)--Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Jarrett Boykin, Davante Adams & Jeff Janis
Analysis: Although marginally impressive, two rookies make the final roster.
OFFENSIVE LINE (8)--Bryan Bulaga, David Bakhtiari, Corey Linsley, Josh Sitton, T.J. Lang, Derek Sherrod, JC Tretter & Lane Taylor
Analysis: Packers will probably add another lineman.
DEFENSIVE LINE (6)--Mike Daniels, Khyri Thornton, Datone Jones, Josh Boyd, Mike Pennel & Letroy Guion
Analysis: Having marginal Boyd & Thornton, Packers are fortunate to have Guion & Pennel.
LINEBACKER (11)--Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers, Mike Neal, Nick Perry, Jayrone Elliott, A.J. Hawk, Brad Jones, Jamari Lattimore, Sam Barrington, Andy Mulumba & Carl Bradford.
Analysis: Packers wisely kept impressive Elliott & prospect Bradford. Mulumba may make it or go to taxi squad.
DEFENSIVE BACKS (5)--Sam Shields, Tramon Williams, Casey Hayward, Davon House & Jarrett Bush.
Analysis: Rolle won’t clear waivers. Rookie CB Goodson should be on practice squad.
SAFETIES (4)--Morgan Burnett, Micah Hyde, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix & Sean Richardson.
Analysis: Good decision here. Banjo will probably go to practice squad.
SPECIALISTS (3)--Mason Crosby (K), Tim Masthay (P) & Brett Goode (LS).
