    that James Starks is going to make an appearance, and have a BIG game. Edgar Bennett style.

    Starting to wonder if he lost his job as the primary rb, as Grant has been pretty solid.

    I would like to see Grant and Starks compete over who can get the most rushing yards. Make it a contest. Win-Win situation.

    I sure hope so.

    If the Pack rushes over 100 yards, not a doubt in my mind they win.

    I look for Cobb to step up his game.

    personally I don't see Grant doing anything. I could see starks doing some damage but I realllllllllly could see Cobb break one

    Grant and Starks that combo see it coming,I see the front guys giving them room to run,they may not get big gains,but sure can get yards when we need them.

    I just hope Starks is FINALLY rested and healed and beyond the point of reinjuring himself so easily. Grant has had some great runs this season, hope Starks can get one this game followed by one by Grant.

    Ok why?

    He has been better than Starks last few weeks...Actually running with authority..I was even bitching ( KC game? ) that he wasnt used enough because he was running at will

    He may still be looking to get revenge on the Gmen..But that would be a little petty since it was so long ago

    I understand that but Giants ALWAYS eat up Grant. Just something about him playing against us, I would have no confidence in him this week

    he should love the Giants for trading him to u guys.

    If we cut him he could of been picked up by a team like JAcksonville.

    If we kept him he'd be our 3rd back

    Wait..ALWAYS? think he had two games vs you? To small of a sample to say it is a given..

    but its odd..In 08 Champ game, 13 carries for 29 yards

    This year? 13 carries for 29 yards..... how freaky

    If you guys rush for over 100 you should win. But I don't see it happening seeing as we just shut down the #6 rushing attack in the league. I'll give the Pack 80 yards rushing at the most. It's going to be an aerial attack all day. I just hope our D-Line continues to get after the passer/get their hands in the passing lanes.

    I think that Cobb will continue to step up and within 2 years it will be him Jordy and Greg running the universe.

    For Starks to ahve a great game, all he needs to do in my mind is make the big runs when they matter so that ARod can get a break from the Giants teeing off on him. Honestly though, I doubt Rodgers will be sacked >3 times. He'll have a lot of quick passes. I just want Starks and Grant to do well enough so that ARod can launch a few long balls.

    They eat him up because Grant always waits for holes to open instead of hitting them at full speed. Starks will have more YPC.

    I agree with the running philosophy you speak of. Lots of draws and quick pitches. The sack total is completely up to the health of your line and the short, quick passes have actually been really well defensed the past few week by our DL. They're coached extremely well and get their hands up when they can't get to the QB.
