    According to nfl.com, in the 2012 regular season the Packers ran the ball an average of 27.1 times per game. That was good for .... wait for it .... .... 16th in the league. So 15 teams ran it more while 16 teams ran the ball fewer times per game. Rodgers certainly accounted for some of the rush attempts, how much more than the average QB I'm not sure. Still, it looks like McCarthy can be called "average" with regard to NFL rushing attempts.

    To be sure. There's no risk in that...minimum salary with no guarantees would be the deal. But that doesn't mean Benson can make it to the opening day roster.

    Rodgers rushed 54 times for 259 yards. Cobb rushed 10 times for 132 yards. They had the highest per carry average. Take them away and we didn't show much of a running game until Harris appeared on the scene late in the season.

    From the Buyer Beware article on ESPN:

    LaRon Landry, safety



    2012 team: New York Jets


    [​IMG]
    Landry


    On the back of what ended up being a Pro Bowl season, Landry has positioned himself to get paid. He won't be taking a hometown discount with the Jets because in his eyes his stock is at an all-time high after he proved he could handle the rigors of an NFL season by playing 96.6 percent of the Jets' defensive snaps.


    Only the tape doesn't back up his performance. Eighty-eight tackles represent a big number, but his 4.7 run stop percentage was only 14th among safeties despite his spending 46.2 percent of his snaps in the box. He also got beat for 16 first downs and four touchdowns, the 11th-highest number of all safeties in coverage. Sure Landry can put a big hit on a receiver at times, but don't let those big plays fool you. He's not an elite, difference-making player, and he misses too many tackles (his 13 were 12th highest among safeties).

    Burnett also misses a lot of tackles. 11 last season and that led the team.

    Burnett's price tag is (and will be) significantly cheaper than Landry. Big difference. You pay an average, capable starter money commiserate with his level of play. Landry will demand elite-level pay for average, capable starter play.

    I`d agree with you but who on our squad can do better at the moment ? Cedric Benson did not impress me much before he got injured, although nobody has impressed me much since Ahman Green and William Henderson wore green and gold if I`m honest.

    This is true as well, but harris had a limited amount of time to work with his linemen and learn all aspects of the playbook. He will be a better runner next season I bet ya.

    No....not really, the folks in chicago and minn are used being dipped in sh!t so a sh!tty hand shake just may go unnoticed.

    TT's life has got to be really awful.

    Rodell330: "Please TT! Please pretty please? Will you sign LaRon Landry? PLEASE!!?!?!"
    TT: "Look dude, I'm just trying to buy some milk for my corn flakes. Get off the floor; let go of my leg; and just let me purchase my groceries."

    I really can't see him joining the packers. Other teams will pay him more. Every fan thinks that so n so free agent wants to sign with their team.

    Can we go after a player that isn't contemplating retirement?

    Benson 3.5 avg

    Alex 3.4

    Starks 3.6

    Harris 4.6 on 34 atts..


    Take away Rodgers and Cobbs atts that is 64 you have 23 times per game

    But then you have to go back and take away rushing atts by the other teams q/b like Washington and Carolina

    Wash had 519 but RG3 had 120 atts and that gets 25 times per game


    So yes Packers do seem to rush just enoough
