As Nate Koenig so astutely observed to co-host Rourke Decker yesterday, we have yet to cover the Green Bay Packers training camp. Today we will remedy this deficiency as we devote the majority of our episode to just that.

One matter for concern among Packers fans last season was the use -- or rather, the over use -- of nose tackle B.J. Raji, who was on the field more than probably any other player. How is Raji responding to the infusion of fresh, young talent on the defensive side of the ball?

Perhaps the most intriguing story line of this training camp in the wake of Ryan Grant's departure is who will take over as the Packer's starting running back. James Starks would seem to be penciled in as the starter in the early going, but can the Packers rely on him to carry the load for an entire season? What are the chances that backups Alex Green or Brandon Saine take the world by storm and surprise us all?

Another glaring weakness on the Packers offense at times in recent years has been the offensive line. With Marshall Newhouse apparently stepping up to take the starting left tackle job, are the Packers set on their offensive line, or will 2012 be another revolving door? You can be sure our Gameday Chatroom will be open for the duration of the event!
