    The guy has been on the roster seven weeks. It might be time to learn the playbook.

    Question: Does Nance make the team next year with a healthy Ryan Grant and competition from James Starks?

    Heres the thing, if you read it they say that they dont want to take Jackson off the field...

    The coaches have given him only a handful of plays and Nance says he is ready for all of it.

    Grant took EIGHT weeks to get carries............Traded on Sept 1st of 07 1st real action was on 10-29



    Nance was traded to the Packers on Sept 14th, so this is his 7th week...Dallas week would be his 8th week


    But he must suck cuz he is taking "This long"

    I think the Packers are waiting for either a good sized lead or a blowout loss to start getting Nance a few more reps. The last thing you want to do is put a guy in who's not ready with the game on the line.

    I agree there is something odd for him to not even get a couple touches by now..

    But who knows now with him being hurt

    He was in on the screen play last week that ended up being an interception.
    That was the only down he played right?

    I'm not hating, I'm just wondering when he'll learn the playbook. It's his job to know the playbook. Know the playbook.

    I never said he sucked. I'm just waiting to see the guy play. It's Week 8 and he's been on the roster for 7 weeks. It's time.

    Nance is listed as injured and doubtful for this week's game, I believe.

    Probably experienced a severe paper cut from studying the playbook so hard.

    Haha...

    Carlos Boozer of the Bulls broke his wrist tripping over his gym bag at home.

    Bryan Robinson, while with Bears, broke his wrists tripping over his dog.

    Sammy Sosa pulled his back sneezing.

    I was going to start another thread, but thought this one might serve the purpose. The past couple of games it seems that neither Starks or Jackson can get the job done. Why isn't Nance being utilized. Would you folks rather see Starks or Nance get more touches?

    For context, it looks to me like Starks and Jackson are both "put your head down and run into the pile" runners. Nance appeared to me to have more field vision. What's up with his playing time?

    I thought Starks had some ok runs in the Bears game. Nothing great, and definitely lower than average, but it was a tough defense to run on.

    I think Starks has shown more than Nance. Nance though would be a nice replacement for Jackson if he could get his blocks down better. Starks would hopefully be the grant replacement.

    That's been Kuhn territory the past couple of weeks. Take the Fan favorite back over the Unproven Goal Line back in the playoffs
