    you said there was a sufficient sample to judge he runs like Brandon Jackson. In that case it should be fairly easy for you to make a convincing argument that he runs like Jackson so lets hear it.

    According to NFL.com Between 07 and 10 Jackson averaged mostly in the mid 3 yards per carry. His best year was 2008 where he averaged 5.5 yards. Franklin averaged 5.6 yards per carry last year.
    Jackson did hold onto it better though.

    Yeah, like I said. That's a really small sample size to go off of. Cinci game he was awesome, fumble aside. Ever issue you've brought up with him as to why you didn't think he was good is a common rookie issue that is fix/coch -able.

    I agree about that last bit.

    He quoted it. I wasn't admonishing you though, I was just pointing it out. Unnecessary and unwanted for you to apologize to me over that.

    I am trying to figure out if you acting like a phallic shaped piece of mixed flour, water and yeast was your intention in this thread or if it just comes naturally.

    Why can't it be both?

    Seems to me, though, I'm the only one who wished him well in his pursuit of a political career.

    And lets not mince words. Unless one has a personal relationship with the guy, he'll be a quickly forgotten footnote in the annals of Packerdom. Nicey-nice sentiments from strangers don't have a shelf life past next Monday.

    Pretty sure I said I echoed your sentiments along the life after football line.

    Green? Don't forget about Harris. Green will have a totally difficult time making the team since he's not on the roster

    In retrospect, the Starks resigning probably should have tipped us off but it might have signaled a lack of confidence in Harris at that point...

    Whatever the case, I'm just disappointed for Franklin. From what I can gather, he's a great person and I wish him luck with all of his endeavors.

    There following Packers who had serious neck injuries since 1962 that ended their NFL careers:

    LB Nelson Toburen Linebacker 1961-1962
    CB Tim Lewis 1983-1986
    WE Sterling Sharpe- 1988-1994
    S Gary Berry 2000
    WR Terrance Murphy 2005
    G Paul Palmer 2006
    DL Jeremy Thompson 2008
    S Nick Collins 2005-2011

    and now Johnathon Franklin (2013-2014)


    the NFL careers of TE Jermichael Finley (2008-2013) and DT Johnny Jolly (2006-2009-2013 are in jeopardy, pending medical test on their necks.

    Here is a question:

    Do we bring in a RB now? I wonder if they were going to keep 4 RBs anyway assuming this neck injury to Franklin never happened?

    I know it's only OTA's, but from what I've seen Rajion Neal may have a future in the NFL. I think
    he is a longshot to make the active roster, but I wouldn't be surprised if he makes the practice squad.
