Penalties add up for Packers

With offensive coordinator Joe Philbin preaching accountability to the players on Monday, how will the players react? Aaron Rodgers agreed, and so did a few other players. So where does it start?

One major weakness for the Pack is that as a team they have too many penalties. In the last two games, the Packers have been flagged 17 times. You do the math if the team cannot lower the amount of penalties in the next 14 games.

At this point, Nick Barnett should not be in the starting lineup. Brandon Chillar should be. Chillar looked great in the preseason, but has not duplicated that success as of yet in the regular season. Still, Nick Barnett still isn't healthy and needs to realize that he will be more valuable when he is healthy later in the season.
