View Full Version : O-line matchups

The Packers defensive line got way too much pressure on Culpepper in the second half. Now, I think the Eagles have an even better d-line and since we will be relying on the passing game a lot they have got to keep Daunte from having to run around all the time. Also if Moss is hurt it will affect his deeper routes and that in turn affects the timing of the offense, putting even more pressure on the o-line on plays where Daunte is looking for Randy.

The right side of the line to me is more vulnerable because they will be facing Jevon Kearse and Corey Simon. Kearse was able to get into the backfield and cause a lot of disruption in our last game. He is a versatile player and the EAgles use him in a bunch of different schemes, even as a pass rushing linebacker in some situations and I would expect Johnson to be throwing stuff like that at Culpepper on Sunday.

Looking at their other starters and backups, I just don't see anybody that won't give us trouble. Rayburn, McDougle, Hugh Douglas, and Burgess are all great pass rushing linemen...this is the best d-line in the NFC, maybe the whole league. If our guys can't hold their own against this group or if Culpepper can't adjust in time it will be a long day. Not trying to be negative, just saying the line has got to step it up now more than ever.

Kearse against Goldberg scares me.
