    Welcome to the forum man!

    Don't take it as personal, but we have already a 10+ page thread discussing the running game, so I'm gonna merge this thread.

    I don't think we should draft a RB. Grant will be back and we've got 3 other RBs on the roster who could compliment him quite well. I don't see why we wouldn't go with an OL 1st.

    Starks is the starter then. I liked it.

    Jackson is much better at his 3rd down role, he's very good running the screens and blocking.

    And it helps that Rodgers is back. With him, the D doesn't have to play as well (I'm worried, BTW), and the running game doesn't need to work as well.

    Rodgers and Jennings are the best solution for our running game.

    I'm building one right now out of some old wood chips I just happened to have. Were you the one who started the Starks thread? If so, I credit you with lighting a fire under Starks. All Hail Wood Chipper!!! LOL!

    He doesn't go down easy - reminds me of Peterson.

    It's just nice to see a Packers RB run north and south and not hesitate when he hits the hole or always look for the cut back. This is a liability that I think they have found an answer for. Starks isn't the second coming of Paul Hornung (did I just age myself?), but he is the best I've seen in a long time.

    Haha, now you're just trying to make people mad.

    EDIT: I just saw he actually had a really good game.

    Nope, unless you think 83 yards and 3 TD's is a bad game.

    Another EDIT: BTW, I'm not at all saying I'd rather have him right now, just stirring the pot since you mentioned him :)

    Not having a quality backup at RB "in case" Grant went down was Ted's 2010 version of the Favre trade. I.e. dumbest move of the year.

    MM's reasoning for not using Starks in the past few games makes my head spin... Nance has won out the job due to his "special teams" efforts.. MM said Starks still has work to do there and he evaluates them both each week to determine who gets the start.

    Having an RB who can also do ST is great.. but really? Sacrifice your running game due to ST's? I don't get it.

    The whole contribution on ST has always been a big MM thing that has driven me crazy. Starks is waaay better than Nance, and they both are 10 times the back jackson will ever be. MM doesn't seem to care that a one dimensional team is not good, especially in the post season.

    I agree 100%, but remember many on this board think the sun rises and sets on TT's a$$.
