    I always enjoyed Terdell Middleton, he had one thousand yard season in 1978.

    Levens could have been pretty good if it wasn't for the Madden curse ;)

    I'm a little younger so I can't remember much past Mike Sherman, but who have been genuine "studs" since then? Does stud mean elite? Do you have to be more than a one year wonder (Javon Walker, Samkon Gado?)

    All I can say for sure is there is a direct correlation with having a stud quarterback and winning championships. There is not with a RB. It's tough in the NFL to have both. I think we've chosen correctly with Favre and Rodgers in the past 20 years, you won't hear any complaints from me.

    Care to discuss stud QBs? It has only been on rare occasion that the Packers have EVER not had a stud QB, even though that QB may not have always had a good team around him. I'll take the tradeoff.

    Good question tho. I thought Ahman Green was a stud but Levens to me was a "capable" back. Meaning he wasn't considered elite at one thing but he was solid in multiple areas. I would like to see if Franklin or Lacy could be the next "stud" back. Lacy runs with power and great vision but Franklin is a capable wr who is both elusive and explosive. Will one emege as the "guy"? we shall see.
