    one GLARING difference thoug.. is the amount of superbowls they have compared to us in the last decade...they pull the trigger when need be.. we usually dont.. with that being said.. theres no way i want sproles for a 1st and 3rd, thats just silly... nor do i want deangelo for those two players and a pick.. i think kuhn can handle it for what we need him for, and hopefully nance or starks can be a change of pace...there's bigger issues than rb at this point

    Biggers issues then RB? Like what? If we are one dimensional we are no threat to the big time defensive teams, and we absolutely will pay for it..We have been spoiled with Grant, and being able to change the pace of the game whenever we wanted..We dont have that now..We played a pretty decent Bears defense and they made our offense look silly...we need a threat at RB

    We haven't faced a big time QB (ala Brady, Favre, Brees) yet and we don't know if we fixed our problems from last year. So we may find out we have bigger problems in the secondary.

    last year our secondary problems were caused by injuries, leaving us with hardly anyone who could play in the secondary. this year we will have a jaw dropping amount of talent back there before we play anyone of note. and no favre doesnt count anymore. if he even makes it to oct 24

    I think there's really no point in trying to speculate on a trade for a feature back. We have two weeks until the trade deadline, and any feature back we grab from someone else's team is going to need time to learn our playbook, get used to the way our linemen block and learn our system. It's unrealistic to expect a trade to be an instant fix.

    Oh, and Darren Sproles? Are you kidding me? Why should be give up a first and a third for someone that's not even considered a feature back on his present team?

    Frankly, I'm eager to see what Nance and Starks can do. Nance just needs to learn the playbook, and McCarthy said he should see a bigger role this week. Starks will be eligible to start practicing again in two weeks and if all goes well, could be activated shortly thereafter. In the mean time, I think Kuhn will do just fine at grabbing those three yard pickups we need.

    Yeah but let's not kid ourselves into thinking they'll be ready to go right away. I mean, it's possible, but neither of them has seen any contact and aren't likely to be in football shape right away.

    It seems more and more like a move for a running back is not coming. I don't understand why somebody isn't been brought in, but in TT we trust.

    I'm looking forward to Harris and Bigby coming back. The defense could use the boost.

    Because man, we don't need anyone. We took our shot at Lynch, we didn't get him, so it's time to move on and focus on the guys we have rather than those we don't. For all we know, Nance could be the guy we're looking for. Or Starks. We just don't know yet, so it's time to give those guys a shot.

    Besides, I thought this was a timely article:

    I'm awfully excited for the trading deadline to be here... I'm so tired of talking about RB Rumors.

    I disagree. Just because they are not allowed to practice with the team on the PUP list, does not mean they are disallowed from working out, training, etc. Bigby and Harris are both pros, know the playbook, and what is expected of them. The only thing that actually worries me would be Al Harris still not being fully recovered. I'm confident Starks will be ready to go day 1, just about as confident in Bigby, and Harris is the cliffhanger.

    Right, but there's a difference between being "in shape" and "in football shape." Football shape means you're capable of getting beat up and it doesn't slow you down. Your body is used to the contact, the hits, the abuse.

    These guys coming off the PUP list might be in excellent shape, but they won't necessarily be in football shape right away.

    Exactly! That's why I think they should start Harris at #3. We don't need him risking any more injures, we are gonna need him in post season! Same for Bigby, I'm sure these guys are training hard, but Harris, well both of them, are precious and I hope they make sure they are well taken care of!

    I just read on fox sports that the PR office was willing to go for Lynch, but TT didn't want to give up a 4th rounder with a conditional 3rd rounder for him. I would have done it in a heartbeat with the situation we are in right now with our RBs.

    OK, I'm going on record here to say that the Packers are going to prove all you naysayers wrong by the end of the season. You are going to find out the Jackson, Kuhn and Nance can get the job done. If they don't you have permission to stick you tongues out at me and say nyah, nyah, nyah.
