I think the addition of 18 will make our line better.
    Hope so!

    I know I'm being selfish but he would've really helped our Oline understand Manning's madness n Walton just sucks so bad

    Jeff Saturday says he "felt more wanted by the Packers". Translation: more guaranteed money. And there's nothing wrong with that.

We can always add depth, but that starting 5 is as good as any OL in the NFL. No need to break the great chemistry those guys have.
    What could possibly give you that inclination? ...Walton sucks bad ...really bad, tips the snap count ..is tiny for a lineman, soft ...doesn't move the DT's off the line at all

    Walton flat out sucks....almost as bad a pick as Knowshon by McGoofy

    Once Jeff Saturday agreed to a deal with the Green Bay Packers last week, he knew the next thing on his to-do list was to make a possibly uncomfortable phone call.

    Peyton Manning, his teammate in Indianapolis for the entirety of his NFL career, pushed hard for Saturday to join him on the Denver Broncos, and Saturday knew a displeased Manning would be waiting for him on the other end of that phone call.

    "Peyton is a close friend and I loved playing with him," Saturday told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "I loved the time we spent together. It was the most difficult call I've ever made. I told him before anyone else that I was going to Green Bay.

    "I told him I don't think the Broncos wanted me as much as he did. They've got things going on that they're happy with and are moving forward with and I didn't think it was an exact fit. I always felt like in Green Bay I was their very first choice."

    Saturday, 36, has started 188 regular-season games in 13 NFL seasons, all with the Colts, and he told the Journal Sentinel that he feels he can provide the Packers with a veteran presence on the offensive line.

    "They have a great offensive line and some really good, young players," said Saturday, whose two-year deal reportedly is worth several millions of dollars less per year than the four-year, $26-million deal ex-Packers center Scott Wells signed with the St. Louis Rams. "They won 15 games last year; it's not like I have to add a lot to it. But I think I can offer leadership, and being a veteran I can help the offensive line blossom into players they want to be."

    Bummer. Walton is backup center at best not a starter. Would love have Jeff Saturday oh well....

    Jeff Saturday's two-year deal in Green Bay is worth $7.75 million, including $4 million this season.


    Seems rich for his last couple of years doesn't it?

    Probably why we skipped him.

    Saturday....long in the tooth & wants to compete in the Super Bowl again.

    Selects GB over DEN after we sign Manning.

    Very interesting. I'm ok with it though. I prefer the youth movement anyway.

    Maybe Jeff is still mad over Peyton's rant a few years ago.
