Did Dimitri Nance kill Mike McCarthy's dog? Or is he really just that bad?

    2 carries, 4 yards so far in his time here.

    Does anybody know why he's getting literally no carries? I know, I know, Jackson looked okay last game. That's great. I'd still like to see Nance serving some sort of purpose other than wasting a roster spot.

    Honestly, I'm not even sure why he's here at the moment.

    yea I am completely confused about why he isn't used except for special teams, MM answer will be, "base on the run-pass situations we set ourselves up in" breathes heavy continues to speak monotone, "we are a balanced offense" breathes again "we put a lot on aaron rodgers plate" breathes again "I still think our offensive line played pretty well, given the circumstances" big unpleasant breath, "i wanna be like sean peyton..."

    I agree with you. The only thing I hear McCarthy note about him is Dimitri's special team ability. . .

    You can't tell me that the Packers signed Nance after Grant's season ending injury to get a guy for special teams.

    It just doesn't add up.

    I guess the Dmetri Nance - Arian Foster comparisons were a little premature.

    go look at how long it took Ryan Grant to be part of the offense, it will shock you

    I think was almost 9 weeks before he became a starter...Like 7 games, or maybe 8

    so yeah it might be a while

    If Flynn starts, who knows what will happen. Maybe MM will abandon his religiously pass-heavy game plan and put the ball on the ground a bit.

    Probably because it takes longer than 5 minutes to learn the play book.

    Here's the ball, run it here *points at a picture* isn't hard.

    I'm not advocating he be the featured back. I just want to see him get like 3-5 carries a game.

    Hey. Brandon Jackson has been here for 4 seasons? And he still thinks you're supposed to run East-West.

    cause for some reason, he thinks he can hit a home run, it's a horrible mentality that inexperienced runners have, even AP follows his blocks more patiently, and no one is more patient following their blocks then CJ2K
