    Let's say the run game is still non-existent come Week 8, and Ted Thompson is forced to trade for a RB. If this happens, what 2 players/draft picks would you be willing to give up for a RB that could come in and average about 75 ypg?

    I would give up a 5th rounder and maybe one of our DT. How about you?

    Sounds like DeAngelo Hall could be available. We could always use another DB :)

    Oh, this is about RB. We didn't go for one in the off-season, I doubt we try now.

    LOL, great point. There are several guys I wouldn't mind shipping away for a RB.

    Damn near any O-Lineman on our roster I could live without besides Wells and Tauscher. One of our DT's would be ok as well

    Er Favreforever721, would you mind stating what you are trying to accomplish with this thread?

    Because right now I really don't see a purpose. If I still can't find one, then I'll lock this thread.

    Are you wondering the value of a decent RB? Perhaps wondering if the Packers have a decent RB? Wondering what would be done in a worst case scenario of no RB emerging?

    Please do clarify the purpose of this thread.

    It depends who the RB was. If it is someone who is not mid-upper level, than I don't think we need him (or her).

    And I think we should try to sign Pacman Jones as our RB.

    Colin Cole comes to mind but depends on what back we are talking about.

    Any really good RB would cost too much right now. Both Morency and (at times) the OL seem to be improving. That's our best hope. I had lobbied for Turner around draft time but TT was enamored with Jackson apparently. Surprisingly, at least to me, Wynn could be a real help if he would make up his mind whether to fish or cut bait. Our real hope, IMO, is the future, when a lot of our rookies/1st yr guys come of age. Jones and Jennings will someday be pro-bowlers, mark my words. We're about a year away.

    Where was this said? I think he's on the Lions and I doubt the Lions would trade Bell to someone in their division.

    I wouldn't mind getting that Adrian Peterson guy. :beer:

    Seriously though, I can't think of someone on our team that is quality enough that I would want to give up.

    Seems like he doesn't have a great work ethic. He's out there for one series and he has to run to the trainer afterward because he's exhausted. That's a little bit of a concern for me.

    He won't if he doesn't learn how to play a full game. He has talent, but needs to show up for all 4 quarters.

    Keep in mind, Wynn played at Florida where it's humid year round. You would think he would've been one of the players ready and use to the hot weather Sunday Night.

    The humidity in Florida is no where near as bad as it is in Green Bay, WI. My room mate has lived in both FL and WI. Many others have said the same thing who've lived in both FL and WI.

    The bears run defense is ranked 27th because no one is trying to run on them, they don't have to. the bear still have a good rushing D and our 40 yarder was not a fluke. If it were any other ball carrier, it would have been a TD as well.

    I wouldn't trade anyone for anything. Maybe K-rob, but I'd have to see who we'd get.
