I know Packers fans (and Jason Wilde) have been clamoring for Tauscher to be resigned and I recognize what he meant to the offense last year - he basically came in and saved not only the offense, but the season. And I know the idea of moving on at right tackle is not a popular one with the team apparently set for a run at the Super Bowl. But I would caution that Alan Barbre's flop was very much an anomaly, rather than the norm when going with a younger, unproven player at the right tackle position. McCarthy and his staff simply got enamoured with the guys athleticsism and the fact that he had "waited his turn" so to speak. It was to the teams detriment that they didn't give T.J. Lang a shot to win the job in training camp - because he would have.
And even if Tauscher comes back, it's a good bet he will this year.
