    I agree, after one game we shouldn't be so quick to think Grant's going to get cut. But at the same time I wouldn't rule it out of the realm of possibility. If Grant doesn't show that he still has it after the injury then I don't see the Packers to actually keep him after 2012.

    Grant had the post season record for rushing yards during that seattle game.

    They keep track of everything... how many yards a player had on the night of a full moon in 23 degree weather during the year in which the total of each individual integer equals a prime number (ie - 2001, 2003, 2005)

    He broke it at like 80 yards. Plus that was only our team record. Im pretty sure Grants was out of every team. which makes it far more impressive

    The major difference between Starks and Jackson is: Starks keeps his feet moving forward where BJ tends to stutter step and hesitate. That is the difference between 0yds and 3yds or more. I'll take Starks over BJ any day.

    I hate how BJax yucks the ball before he even hits the hole, and he puts his head down. Starks runs upright, and forward. As a result, he gets more than 2 yards a carry.

    Starks = Head up looking for holes
    B-Jack = Head down, looking to run forward into any gap and make a collison.

    As stated before. Difference between 0 and 3 yards.

    Starks was never stopped for 0. I think his worst was 2yrds. Starks is a HUGE find for the Pack.

    Btw. Now Atlanta has to prepare for a running back and Rodgers. That might help us on Saturday.

    Aaron on Starks:

    "It was huge the way James Starks ran the ball tonight and was maybe the most important factor in us winning," said Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who completed 18 of 27 passes for 180 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions. "He set up some of the play action we did."
    Rodgers was honest when asked if he thought the ground game would be so effective. The Packers rushed for 138 yards (4.3 yards per carry).
    "No, I didn't," Rodgers said. "I thought I would have to play a good game, be efficient, do a good job on third down, and I thought there would be a few more passing attempts.
    "But the way James was running, we stuck with it."

    Yeah, the Irishman has promised one since he was hired. Looks like he may be developing one finally.

    I am mad for Starks!!! When we get Grant back next year, can you just imagine our running game with TWO solid running backs?!!!! add Kuhn and BJax to that list too!!!

    I believe that Ryan Grant will still give us a couple years of productivity. I'm unaware of when his contract expires, but if it's after the 2012 season, he'll be 30 at that time. If Starks maintains this level of play, I wouldn't anticipate that he'd be resigned as running backs tend to deteriorate around that age and TT seems to prefer a younger roster.

    The running back tandem of Ryan Grant, James Starks, Brandon Jackson or Dimitri Nance as a third down specialist, and John Kuhn as a short yardage specialist is intriguing.

    Starks looked really good. He was hitting the holes and not letting himself get brought down with arm tackles.

    I have no idea what to think of Nance, I'm leaning in the direction of Starks and Grant. I think Starks is an equal receiver to BJax but we'll see.
    I can't imagine what BJax will bring to the party.

    ok here it is. grant and starks is your one two punch (never have a tired runner) Kuhn is your goal line man and bjax can go in on 3rd downs when needed to pass block or catch. This is all considering we have these four guys next year

    I just read that Starks is coming back to Buffalo to get the key to the city of Niagara Falls. Finally! I get to meet a Packers player! And one that helped them win Super Bowl XLV no less!
