Packers say so long to Mark Tauscher


The Packers made a few unexpected roster cuts this week.  This one comes as no surprise.

Green Bay cut tackle Mark Tauscher, as first reported by Jason Wilde of

There just wasn’t a big role for Tauscher available with youngsters Bryan Bulaga and Derrek Sherrod in place.  It would be a small surprise if Tauscher didn’t retire after 11 year.

    He was a great Packer – did everything that was asked of him, and more.

    I’m so glad he was able to get a ring, and I hope he’s able to stay with the organization in some capacity.

    Loved the guy but it was time. He had trouble staying healthy. Loved all he gave to the Badgers and Packers.

    He was (and still is) a true warrior.

    Mr. Tauscher: Thank you and wishing you the best of everything in your future.

    Im sort of suprised but they did draft Bryan Bulaga last year.

    So glad he got a ring,,,he was one of the best Packers of all time.
    Very underrated

    Yeah, Tauscher is awesome. Class guy all the way around. My money says he eventually ends up as an o-line coach, in some capacity.

    a big thanks to mark tauscher for all his years at UW Madison and in Green Bay. A truly great player, and a greater person. Glad you could get a ring Mark, you deserve it!

    I hope he is still able to play somewhere outside the NFC North.

    I sure wish there hadn’t been a holding call on the TD catch he made. He did get his Lambeau Leap.

    He made a lot of friends over the years.

    The Packer youth movement continues.

    Hopefully Tausch will return to the Pack as a coach of some sort …… A true Wisconsinite who deserves all the accolades possible for being a great player & an outstanding citizen …..

    Set up the ceremony for his induction into the Packer HOF …… Sometime down the road it will happen …….

    Wow…. our line(which wasn’t very good last year) has taken a HUGE hit with our depth….

  13. thehatefulnerd says: Jul 29, 2011 5:45 PM

    Yes, Tausch was a true warrior. SO glad he finally got a ring. Hope they bring him back as on OL coach.

  14. golions1 says: Jul 29, 2011 5:49 PM

    I hope the Lions sign him

    Will the last player to leave Green Bay please shut off the lights! What a brutal 72 hours for the 13 time WORLD
    CHAMPION Green Bay Packers Inc.

    Man, am I ever glad he earned a ring before this day came. I’m willing to bet he has few regrets. Class act…a true Packer.

  17. greenbay4ever says: Jul 29, 2011 6:15 PM

    Tauscher was a great packer. Wish they could keep him. I am so glad he got a ring before he moves on or retires. Thanks Tausch. Packer Hall of fame calling.

    Tauscher is a gladitator, very underrated , glad he got a ring

  19. mikemccarthyisfat says: Jul 29, 2011 6:26 PM

    ill miss watching the DEs dogg him out for sack after sack after sack….

  20. johnnyb216 says: Jul 29, 2011 9:55 PM

    Really hope he’s back as a coach.

  21. mikemccarthyisfat says: Jul 30, 2011 12:10 AM

    dude could run in WI politics…hes Mr. Wisconsin.

    He’d be a shoe-in!! A fat, bearded bumbling slob who was always piss poor at his job. All he needs is a PBR in his hand!

  22. 13xworldchamps says: Jul 30, 2011 12:11 AM

    Wow…. our line(which wasn’t very good last year) has taken a HUGE hit with our depth….

    Lang and McDonald need to Compete for that spot, Ted has done a masterful Job of redoing the O line. Let’s hope Clifton has 1 More good year.

    Thanks Mark, you were one heckuva 7th rounder, see you in the Packer hall of fame

  23. mkepackfan says: Jul 30, 2011 12:12 PM

    Equal if not better of a value 7th round pick than DD.

    Set up the ceremony for his induction into the Packer HOF …… Sometime down the road it will happen …….

    Like that’s a hard place to get into. I think you just have to have all your own teeth…..oops Nitscke is in.

    Maybe you just don’t have to commit a crime….wait Chumura had sex with a 17 year old.

    Tauscher was a serviceable lineman, nothing more, nothing less.

    Do they just put a guy in this “HOF” for being mediocre for a long time?

    Great guy, great player. As several have said, very deserving of the Super Bowl ring. Will always remember him stonewalling Strahan all game long in NY when he was desperately trying to get the sack record, only to have Favre give it to him. Tausch’s comment was typical, understated Wisconsin – “It was a little early for Christmas.” He’ll be back if the Pack needs him. Thank you Mark.
