Colledge calls MNF ‘character game’ (Football)

The Green Bay Packers offensive line has been kicked around by critics all season, called a finesse group by some and soft by others.

But they can do a lot for their image by stuffing the ball down the throat of the venerable Baltimore Ravens defense on Monday Night Football.

“For us, I think the offensive line has really taken this as a really good character game,” said guard Daryn Colledge of North Pole.

Colledge, of Boise State fame, has anchored a Packers line that has paved the way to three consecutive victories and is ranked sixth in the league in scoring at 26.9 points per game.

A victory over Baltimore in front of a national audience would give Green Bay an 8-4 record and inch them closer to clinching a playoff berth.

It would also go a long way in helping them shed the perception that they are a soft line.

“For us, this is really that next step,” Colledge said. “We’ve got a dominant defense coming in here, and we need to go out and have a good performance against them.”
