Offensive line strives for consistency

Green Bay Packers guard Josh Sitton, right, is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field.

Green Bay Packers All-Pro left guard Josh Sitton believes this year's offensive line has the potential to be the best pass-blocking unit in his seven years with the team.

Offensive line coach James Campen agrees, but whether or not Green Bay achieves that comes down to consistency in its blocking. A week after allowing four sacks, the line responded with arguably its cleanest effort to date.

According to PFF, the line gave up only one hurry and didn't allow any Panthers' rusher to touch Aaron Rodgers. Now, they prepare for a blitzkrieg from New Orleans defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.

Using his hand to illustrate, Campen says there's been too many peaks and valleys this season. It's time for the offensive line to put together two strong performances back-to-back. They have an opportunity against the Saints.

"We all have to be better and be sure we're becoming more consistent and stacking those things one on top of each other," Campen said. "I don't think this group rests on its laurels. It's not like that. It's just be consistent week-in and week-out regardless of a front or a change of philosophy like Coach Ryan, he's been around a lot of football."
