Marshall Newhouse 2013 Green Bay Packers Evaluation and Report Card
1) Introduction: Marshall Newhouse started 31 games for the Packers from 2011-2012, 28 at left tackle. Based on the number of sacks/hits/hurries he allowed, that’s less a compliment to Newhouse and more an indictment of the sorry state of the Packers tackle position, with a big help from the Packers’ recurring injury issues.

3) Expectations coming into the season: Marshall Newhouse entered the 2013 season expected to compete for the starting right tackle spot with Don Barclay. Newhouse would be looking to regain his mojo and some of the promise he flashed early in his career.
4) Player’s highlights/low-lights: Lowlights? Any game he played a significant number of snaps. In 2.5 games as a starter against the Eagles, Giants and Vikings, Newhouse was credited with a combined 16 QB hits/hurries/sacks. Highlights? Being inactive in 7 games.
5) Player’s contribution to the overall team success: Played a total of 261 snaps with two starts when Barclay was injured. Was mysteriously insert at guard for a few plays against the Lions and was then quickly benched.
6) Player’s contributions in the playoffs: Played 11 snaps after Baktiari suffered a concussion in the 4th quarter. Did nothing of substance, but also did nothing that really hurt the Packers in that short stint.
