Replacing injured Bulaga
August, 5, 2013

UPDATE: As noted below, the reason why the Packers moved Bryan Bulaga from the right side to the left side of their O-line was to protect Aaron Rodgers. So how will the QB fare now that Bulaga is out for the 2013 season? You can read what Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo has to say about that at the bottom of this post.
No quarterback was sacked more than Aaron Rodgers (51 times) last season, so the Green Bay Packers moved Bryan Bulaga from right tackle to left tackle and Josh Sitton from right guard to left guard to solidify Rodgers' blindside. Unfortunately, the left-tackle plan has been washed away with news that Bulaga tore an ACL during Saturday's intra-squad scrimmage.
