    Mark my words, this guy is the future. Rodgers won't even be needed as Starks is going to run all over the Lions.

    Bold as it may be, i feel confident about my prediction. Starks powered through the 49ers very good rush d when they knew he was running. Now imagine him against a lions team that is ranked among the league's worst against the run...i'm looking forward to seeing the run back in green bay this weekend.

    I also think Starks will hit the century mark AND get his first career TD. Wish it would be at Lambeau though, so he could do his first leap! I wonder if he already has a dance in mind?? haha the dougie maybe?

    Really hope you're right.

    A revamped running game would go long ways towards that pesky SB Trophy we'll win in February.

    Packers running backs coach Edgar Bennett said James Starks is "an every-down back" and has the "type of talent where he can stay on the field in every situation."

    -From rotoworld.com

    If Bennett believes in the kid then so do I my friends.

    I liked what i saw from starks. He had a couple runs where he got tripped up right at the end otherwise he would of broke a couple of them for 25 yards plus. That's always a good sign considering I didn't see that happen once with brandon jackson

    Choice hasn't had the chance to play at all this year with wade phillips as dallas' coach. He got his first chance all season with marion barber injured and posted 100yds. He hasn't played all year which makes him just as fresh as starks.

    Choice played last year. Starks didn't. Less wear on his body. Fresher.

    One game against a very good run defense. The Lions have about the worst. No reason he can't average 5.5 per carry.

    He hope he doesn't have ANY dances in mind. I hope he follows Barry Sanders' example. Hand the ball to the back judge and walk away. Been there, done that, I'll do it again.

    Ive always been a fan of the Barry Sanders "celebration," but it being his first TD in over two years and first ever NFL TD I wouldnt mind seeing him bust a move. :Bananas2::Bananas2:

    Starks doesn't really seem like the dancing type, he seems like the dancing type.

    I'll say this, I was very high on him early but I was also over the top with Pat Lee. He's very much like Ryan Grant with good hands which is why they drafted him. He's Ryan Grant 2.0.
    Everybody is excited about him and we should be, but I can tell you that Aaron Rodgers did comment about the young guys and their "attention to the game"
    I think he's got to prove to everyone, but that's what being a rookie is all about.
    It's scary to think of Finley/Quarless and Grant/Starks next year. How do you defend that with Jennings, Driver, Nelson, Jones and Swain on the same field?

    I don't think the big guy upstairs would like that you went to church just because we all of a sudden have a legit run game :p
