Born out of a series of Tweets by commenter @RandBallsStu, an idea by your humble proprietor and a sick thirst to rile up Packers fans for no good reason, we present, "The Increasingly Lost Preseason." In this series, Stu will give a brief recap of the Packers' misfortunes as they tumble back toward Randy Wright-esque putridity. Stu?
- Eddie Lacy, the running back drafted to aid the Packers’ non-existent running game and take some pressure of the tiny, harried Rodgers, showed up looking like a less-svelte Gilbert Brown. He may not be able to do a bench-press, but his Gravedigger dance is something else. Just be sure you have oxygen at the ready, and maybe some sandwiches.
- Bryan Bulaga, the team’s best offensive lineman and the man tasked with protecting the diminutive, hot-headed Rodgers’ blindside, tore his ACL in Saturday’s scrimmage. An offensive line that was already dreadful at protecting the actor/quarterback in 2012 now has to plug in rookie David Bakhtiari and hope he can both block and get low enough for Rodgers to peer over him and hit an uninjured (yet) Jordy Nelson in stride. Whoops, never mind! Nelson is now hurt, too, and will miss the rest of training camp (at least).
- Speaking of Rodgers, readers may recall our wondering when he would step aside to give Graham Harrell a chance to succeed in 2012. That never happened, their season ended disastrously, Harrell’s confidence is probably shattered, and the team still doesn’t know what they have at the game’s most important position. This was confirmed when the team signed Vince Young to a 1-year deal on Monday.
