After performing much better the second half of the season, the Packers’ offensive line left a lot to be desired in the playoffs, allowing five sacks, including the hit on Aaron Rodgers by Cardinals CB Michael Adams that led to the game-winning score in Arizona’s 51-45 wild-card victory. Entering the offseason, team insiders believe only two spots on the line — right guard and center — can be considered totally secure for 2010 with Josh Sitton and Scott Wells, respectively, earning above-average grades at those positions this season. We hear it’s a much different story, however, at left guard, where free agent Daryn Colledge had a very subpar season, culminated by his ill-timed overtime holding penalty in the playoff loss to the Cardinals. The Packers have shown no signs of going out of their way to re-sign Colledge — a situation that we hear has left the veteran lineman more than a little out of sorts.
