You're the coach, what do you do?
Mike McCarthy and company have some decisions to make before the league opener, and here's our take on a few of them heading into the preseason finale.
Starting right tackle, Don Barclay. Not as gifted as Marshall Newhouse but more consistant..
Starting left tackle, david baktiari. Same as above.
Starting safety opposite morgan Burentt. MD jennings. Jarron McMillian has big plays in him, but still makes mistakes in coverage.
First receiver off the bench after the big three. Jarrett Boykin. He's come on late in camp.
Starting running back. Eddie Lacey. It's almost a mute point with DuJuan Harris down but he was and is the best of the bunch.
Backup quarterback. Vince Young, he's played and won in the NFL, and things just kind of happen when he's in there, even if he doesn't know the plays.
Dime back, if all the DB's are healthy. Micah Hyde, the rookie has shown he deserves a definite role.
Under-appreciated addition. Matthew Mulligan. The blocking tight end didn't play against Seattle and you saw what the running game looked like.
Kicker, Mason Crosby. I thought Zach Ramirez would have to beat him by knockout and instead it was Mason Crosby with the knockout punch.
