    • Abstract:
      This article presents information on the football team Green Bay Packers. WRs Javon Walker and Robert Ferguson need to become bigger parts of the offense. Walker is the team's best big-play threat, and Ferguson can beat bump coverage and get open in the middle because of his size and strength. Backup OT Kevin Barry might be the team's most powerful run blocker, and when he lines up as a tight end he has the ability to cave in that side of the line. When Barry comes into the game, the defense has to devote a safety up close, and usually it's a mismatch. The additions of DE Larry Smith and DT Grady Jackson allow line coach Jethro Franklin to create some confusion.
