http://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/20 ... s-bengals/3) Same Old Newhouse
For most of the 2011 season Green Bay had Marshall Newhouse as their left tackle, representing the one weak spot on the offensive line. While the rest of the line are all in the conversation as to the best at their position, Newhouse was amongst the worst pass-blocking and run-blocking tackles in 2011. There was no effort to improve the position over the offseason, so at least as long as Derek Sherrod is out with an injury, the Packers are stuck with Newhouse.
It started out as an embarrassing outing, as on the first drive Newhouse was called for a false start on one play, and then a declined holding penalty the following play which ended the drive. By far the best outside pass rusher for the Bengals is Carlos Dunlap who missed the game, so for the most part he played against below average pass-rushing talent. He allowed a pressure despite Rodgers typically getting the passes off quickly, and was beaten quickly on a few other plays as well. There were a few plays where Newhouse got a little help, and we can expect to see more of that as the season goes on if he continues like this.

Saw this bit of good news for us. I really hope Newhouse is there when we meet. JA will feast upon Rodgers and yea all will be right in the world.
