    You may have doubted him.

    You may have laughed at his potential.

    You may have cursed him after 2 fumbles in the first.

    But now... you appreciate him.


    Ryan Grant. 200 yards in a playoff game!!!!

    a New Green Bay Packers football record.


    congratulations Ryan...

    fans... pay your respects

    super game for the big guy. Never thought it would happen when they picked him up before the reg season. never thought it would happen before the game (playoff). never thought it would happen after the fumbles.

    BUT WOW.

    How can he not be the NFL Comeback Player of the year? Oh... randy Moss will win that, which is a joke because Randy just took a couple years off, did not try and quit.

    It was great to see the team rally around him after the fumbles. He shook it off and kept his head in the game and came back big. In fact the whole team did.

    I'm gonna guess we all gave up on Ryan Grant....for AT LEAST A SECOND...

    All the regular season awesomeness comes to an end after 2 fumbles in 3 minutes...

    But McCarthy stuck to his guns. He said "favre, do your thing...be smart and accurate." He said "Grant, hit the holes...and hold on to the ball!"

    And they did...

    and because of THATn and consistent defensive play....we won....

    Props to EVERY PLAYER AND COACH on the Green Bay Packers. I was amazed, and I haven't been amazed in a long time.

    Dallas will not stand a chance...

    He's got to be a nice guy if he lets you take his picture with you while you are wearing #4 instead of #25. :D

    I feel bad because early on in the season I thought "Sure Ryan Grant is good, This year, but next year I think his performance will slip and Green Bay should draft (another) young runningback." I'm sorry the man is an excellent football player and I think has potential to take the load in 08-09 season.

    Have to admit it was a bit touchy there in the first 4 minutes. Glad he didn't give up and MM didn't give up on him. Outstanding effort!

    Grant was a stud today... he ran with a purpose like not many I have seen after those two fumbles.. the hurdle was awesome. We are not worthy!

    I don't know about that. If he continues to pave way as we get to the Super Bowl, teams are only going to stack the box.

    It happened to Frank Gore, and it could happen to Ryan Grant.

    Is Ryan Grant great though? Of course! I was actually one of the few who still believed in him after his fumbles. He was given a chance for redemption, unlike James Jones.

    I truly hope they try to stack the box... unlike the Niners we have a passing game... slow beating or quick... you choose as a Defense right now.

    Yea, unfortunately, I thought he should have been benched for just a series. I obviously was wrong and he really turned heads after the incredibly bad start.

    I LOVE his running style. He's punishing, reads the cutback lanes VERY well, and to top it off....he's incredibly explosive when getting to the 2nd level. There's nothing really NOT to like about this guy. A perfect zone blocking back.
