    Last year when Ryan Grant went down with his knee injury so did alot of the franchise's hopes. Now they have him and a running back by the name of James Starks who are both averaging over 4 yards per carry. The Packers are not just pushing Starks out the door either. The amount of rushes between the two are dead even with 32 carries each.
    Now for what is interesting is they a both are built the same way they and they both rely on power alot of the time, though Starks does have more eulisvness than Grant. What Green Bay has done is truely genius they are able to get great production out of each running back while keeping them rested and fresh.
    The dark horse of their run game is not mentioned that much, mostly because he doesn't get as many carries as the two others. His name is John Kuhn. Now don't walk off laughing he is valuable to the Packers because he has a nose for the endzone. On his three carries this year he has had 2 touchdowns now I'm not saying he's a great player I'm just saying he helps Green Bay out more than noticed. Last year he had a total of 6 touchdowns from the FB position now at this rate he's on pace to double that.
    Now as you can see every Green Bay runner has his problems, but they are all valuable to the Packers in their own way even if it doesn't appear on the stat sheet.
