    Packers OT Allen Barbre appears to have the early edge on the starting right tackle job. "Allen's had a very positive camp," head coach Mike McCarthy tells the team's official web site. "You never try to get too excited too fast, because you don't want to create unrealistic expectations... We haven't put the pads on yet, but I really like what I see so far from Allen Barbre." As McCarthy admits, it's too early to jump to too many conclusions, but right tackle is a huge question mark and Barbre may be the answer. Breno Giacomini and T.J. Lang are most often mentioned as the other two contenders for Mark Tauscher's old spot.
