Green Bay Packers Burned by Brian Bulaga ACL Tear

+Read full article

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers are in some potential hot water following the news that starting left tackle Brian Bulaga tore his ACL. The tear happened in an intra-squad scrimmage back in early August.

The news comes as a potential harbinger of doom for an offensive line unit that has been much maligned over the past few seasons. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was sacked a league leading 51 times in 2012! ┬áHe has been sacked 202 times since becoming the full time starter in the 2008 season. Bulaga was perhaps the team’s best individual talent.

He was also the starting left tackle, the position on the line that protects the quarterback’s blindside. Given the offensive line questions this team already had, the season ending injury to Bulaga adds injury to insult. The Packers drafted four rookie lineman in the 2013 NFL Draft. That said, left tackle, the second most integral part of the offensive line after center, will now be a rotating door at worst or at best see guys like Josh Sitton (pictured above) or T.J. Lang come in and play well.

Either way it puts a slight damper on things for the two-time defending NFC North champion Packers. While this team has this aforementioned key injury, they still have so many positives ahead of them in 2013. They still have Rodgers and his stable of talented pass catchers. They improved the running game, and the defense, while still needing work, can only improve and work towards being a solid unit.  This team should still be sitting pretty atop the North when all is said and done.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

For someone who played like a MVP all season long, Carson Palmer has looked anything but tonight against the Green Bay Packers. If he doesn't redeem himself in the fourth quarter, the No. 2 seed Arizona Cardinals will be sitting at home watching the playoffs with the rest of us next week.
