It is a little surprising to see OG Grey Ruegamer will start in place of RG William Whitticker. Ruegamer has come into play a few series in each of the last two games, but it hadn't been reported whether that was due to injury or performance. Obviously it was due to performance. It is odd that the Packers took Whitticker out against Philadelphia because of his play, but then let him come back later in the game. What surprises me about the benching is that Whitticker has struggled at various times all season long, but the Packers seem most concerned about his play over the last couple of weeks. Apparently they expected him to improve as the season went on, but that hasn't happened.
