    I say shut him down!
    Starks can give us what we need for 1 game.
    We need to think of the future and not run Lacy to death in his rookie year.
    One game at a time.

    I dont think it would be a good idea to shut down lacy for the season. Everyone has some injuries and other pains. What makes him so diffrent. If hes clear to play,play him.

    I know Coach Lombardi would agree with you all. Do not play these guys. It is only the playoffs. There is the future to think about. I remember how he shout down Travis Williams his rookie season. Many times he held out hurt players. That is the smart thing to do.

    Agree with ya bud 100%. Why kill the poor kid in his rookie year? He has proved to be the work horse and proved he can carry the packers when Arod is out. Why make this into a potential nagging injury for years to come by keeping him out there to get it further damaged? We can't afford to risk losing our 2nd best offensive weapon right now. Be sides, it's his ankle people.....guess that body part aint that important to a running back

    Yes, save the poor boy till next year when The Packers will need him to try and make the playoffs. I think A Rod and Cobb should sit also. Big games to play in 2014. We will need these players for our playoff push in 2014. Almost bit my tongue putting this garbage out.

    WOW.... some people are just as clueless as the things they type. Why kill one of our best players? Risk more extensive damage for what? A wet dream play off game....where we will end up getting killed? Wake the f*ck up and smell the coffee..... we are hurt and don't have our key players, save it and heal up....no need to do perm-a-damage to young guys like Lacy & cobb. If we conserve them now, we will have a better chance for years to come....

    Lacy will be fine as he's a tough dude. He won't practice this week and get treatment but play Sunday. I would limit his carries to about 10-12 and let Starks go to work against that last ranked run d in the league. Starks has really shown this year that he can be a good running back in this league when he's hungry and motivated. Starks is more than capable of going for over a 100 yds against Chicago. Give him the bulk of the carries but DON'T shut Lacy down.

    try to do a better job at disguising your sarcasm......


    we finally have a damn good RB and this guy wants to throw him to the wolves for one lousy game? WOW..... like we have any shot in hell with our current injury laundry list and a back up QB to go into the play-offs and make a run..... this aint 2010 people. We can't and wont beat teams like Seattle, Carolina, 49ers, Saints, Cardinals..... man up and face the truth, take the homer blinders off.

    You shoulda bit it right off. You do realize that Sunday? yea this one coming up in 2013 we have a chance to WIN the division and MAKE A PLAYOFF PUSH this year? If Cobb can play, lacy can play, or Rodgers? why in the H E double hockey sticks would you sit three of your best offensive weapons for a playoff push in 2014 when we can make a playoff push this year? Can somebody please tell me what i'm missing! please!

    You're not missing anything, if people are able to play, they should play. It is almost like people have forgot this is football, every time you step on the field you are risking serious injury. You don't play for next year, you play for now. If Lacy has nothing more than a sprain, I am pretty damn sure he will be playing on Sunday.

    James Starks is a very good backup.

    If you want to start leaning on him a little more to the point where it becomes an even split, that's fine by me. Maybe even get Bell 5 carries or so. But shut Lacy down? No. I want to try to win our next game. Then our next one. Etc. Worry about licking our many wounds in the offseason.

    Lombardi did just the opposite. PACKERS WERE a hurt team Travis's rookie year. Lombardi pushed them. Won Super Bowl. Always play to win!

    Sitting players for a divisional championship game because they are banged up is one of the most chicken ****, ridiculous things I have read here. Your medically able to play, you go. Pathetic.

    I love what Lacy has done for the Packers Run this season, but like everyone else on our team if he's not healthy enough to play then don't put him at unnecessary risk. Only play him if he's healthy enough to contribute. I don't want to see him over compensate for his ankle injury and it lead to another injury which is what usually happens to athletes. Not wanting to push off or use his ankle to play the game the way he's use to playing will only get him hurt. Again, they kept Starks around for a reason and he's healthy and can definitely kill the porous Bears Run Defense and let Lacy rest if need be.

    Also, make sure if Rodgers does play that he plays the game like Brady or Manning. When their pocket breaks down they hit the ground regardless if the rusher is going to sack them or not to protect themselves. Under this circumstance I say let him play.

    If Lacy says he can play and Dr. McKenzie says he can play, then there's no problem with letting him play. What inside information do you have that makes you think you know better than they do?
