    Only better pass blocker is Jackson, and he's not the runner Kuhn is. Which says more about Jackson than Kuhn. Our blocking system can get a bit complicated

    I see him as the one constant for our AR protection. The line has been terrible for years and TT doesn't want to put one more porous level of protection between the D and AR on his butt.

    The unfortunate side is that Kuhn is not a constant in the backfield for Rodgers

    I like Kuhn’s veteran leadership and his overall attitude but I wish he weren’t on the roster. Nothing against him personally of course, it’s just that with the ball in his hands the chances of him making someone miss are almost zero. Wilde has a good article (linked below) about Lacy’s first game as a pro and details the mistakes he made beyond the fumble. McCarthy is quoted as saying, “My goal for him is to be a three-down player and keep him in there and keep him playing. Because when he’s in there, I mean, he’s a fine young football player. But the details – that’s the difference between winning and losing in this league.” That’s my hope too - that Lacy becomes a 3-down back - but in addition to the other details, he has to master the details regarding protecting Rodgers and that will get him on the field on third downs. If Lacy needs a breather, I’d prefer another back who can make a tackler miss come in on third down. But right now it’s Kuhn because he’s the best at picking up a blitz. It’s up to the young RBs to change that.

    Lacy needs to line up his chops better, and learn to use his hands a bit more instead of immediately selling out on the chop. Harris had the same problem but cleaned that up relatively quickly. When Lacy does the same, look out. The more reps Lacy gets, the more expendable Kuhn gets.

    We didn't want Leach or Quinn Johnson. The coaches don't want a battering ram fullback, they want a guy who can play special teams and pass block and catch the ball occasionally. If you want to watch big battering ram fullbacks and power running games, try the vikings or the badgers.

    I'd like to reiterate this forum after yesterday's boneheaded play. WHY IS KUHN ON THE ROSTER?!?! Especially at $2.5M (or whatever it is)! He's a veteran that made an unforgivable mistake on special teams and his one run was predictably only for 1-2 yards. And we don't use fullbacks in our offense. So, again, why do we bother with this guy?! If he were making the veterans minimum, I could stomach keeping him. But, his salary is outrageous and he should be cut as a result. He's easily replaceable for whatever it is that he brings to this team.
