The survey is complete, the votes have been tallied and here are the results of the polls I have been asking you to vote on since the early part of September.

More than 1,200 readers participated, and to all of you a big thanks.

Question 1: Which set of tackles do you prefer?

David Bakhtiari and Don Barclay at LT and RT 2013 (83%, 147 Votes)

Marshall Newhouse and Bryan Bulaga at LT and RT of 2012 (17%, 30 Votes)

Total Voters: 177

Davey’s comments: This one surprised me a little, because of Bryan Bulaga being on the 2012 set of tackles.  This tells me Packer Nation knows Marshall Newhouse is the definitive weak link at the Tackle position.

Question 2: Will Eddie Lacy be the physical beast of a running back we all expected?

Yes (80%, 191 Votes)

Too early to tell (19%, 46 Votes)

No (1%, 3 Votes)

Total Voters: 240

Davey’s comments: Great job Packers Nation.  Eddie Lacy will indeed be the power back we all have longed for.  The best part of Lacy’s game is he is a three-down back, having played 42 snaps against the Niners.  His second half performance (9 carriers, 37 yards, 1 touchdown), was impressive. Lacy said the speed of the game surprised him compared to the preseason.  He also said every time a gap closed, he would make a move to another gap and that one closed as well.  Welcome to the NFL ROOK.

He’ll have it figured out this week against Washington.


Question 3: Who will bring the most physicality to the Packers this season?

Johnny Jolly (52%, 203 Votes)

Eddie Lacy (31%, 123 Votes)

Nick Perry (10%, 41 Votes)

Mike Daniels (5%, 21 Votes)

Andrew Quarless (2%, 4 Votes)

Total Voters: 392

Davey’s comments: Totally agree with this one. Though running back will prove to be the position to change the overall image of the Packers being a physical team, Johnny Jolly is a wrecking ball.  His taunting of a 49ers player resulted in a penalty against San Francisco.


Question 4: Should the Packers make the current fans on the waiting list their first priority should the added game from an 18-game schedule comes to fruition?

Yes (64%, 125 Votes)

No (36%, 69 Votes)

Total Voters: 194

Davey’s comments: I was shocked by this one.  I thought everyone would think those waiting for years should be first priority on the waiting list, yet Packers Nation only agrees with this 2 to 1.  I will have another season ticket waiting list poll and article later this season.  Watch for it.


Question 5: What do you think about the physical play of the Packers against the 49ers?

They won the battle of physical play (51%, 127 Votes)

They got pushed around (42%, 104 Votes)

It was non-existent (7%, 19 Votes)

Total Voters: 250

Davey’s comments: Excellent job Packers Nation.  I think we went toe-to-toe with those guys and battled at minimum, even-stevens.  The Packers deep defensive line was key, and all the linemen took a lot of snaps but weren’t worn down in the fourth qurater, proving there is strength in numbers.
