The Packers' offensive lineman who seems to have gotten the most credit for the unit's dramatic improvement the second half of the season — only 14 sacks allowed in the last eight games, compared to 37 allowed in the first eight games — is Mark Tauscher, who has been praised for the steadying influence he has provided after once again settling in at right tackle. But no Green Bay O-lineman has been any steadier than second-year ORG Josh Sitton, the only lineman to start every game at the same position this season. Although he's considered an average athlete with not a lot of natural talent, Sitton has provided consistent strength and physicality. Even more important, he hardly is ever out of position and almost always assignment-correct, which is why his name is hardly ever mentioned. The consensus among our sources is that, while he might not earn too many Pro Bowl berths, Sitton projects as a fixture at right guard for a long time to come.
