~If there was any doubt whether Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher could squeeze out at least one more year as the starting tackles for the Green Bay Packers, it’s gone less than a week into training camp. 

That wasn’t a guarantee, because though the two looked fine in offseason practices, they could have struggled once the pads went on.

Reggie McKenzie, the Packers’ director of football operations: “I don’t see any drop-off in them. As a matter of fact, I see improvement. Attribute it to whatever. It’s a great thing.”
