    Our offense can barely move down the field. I feel like I am watching a punting battle every week. Who else thinks we should get Marion Barber???

    I wish this would happen, but obviously Ted Thompson is dead set against experienced players. He is married to his draft picks and would never go out and get a proven, experienced talent like Marion Barber.

    Aaaaaaaaand... scene.

    Wish TT would of traded for Lynch.

    The running game we got is absolute crap. Worst running game from this team in years.

    TT has no idea what he is doing. I cant believe we havent been focusing on our running game. Why didnt he trade for an old veteran back with a ton of milage on him?

    Sometimes I lay in bed and cry just thinking about how embarassing the run game really is.

    We hadent had a decent/Great running game sence the days of Ahman Green was Beasting up the field.

    Man those were the Days Green,Favre,Driver,Harris ah man those we some good teams.

    Now if TT would trade for Sharper I would be loving it.

    I'm telling you right now, with that kind of offensive production we have gotten (or haven't gotten) thus far, if we don't make a move this week or next I'm calling for MM and TT's heads. They are so set on keeping this strategy of building from within and the draft, and what has it gotten us? The Raiders are my role models, they had a need and they traded what they needed to get it. That's how you build a team the right way. At this rate we'll be lucky to be relevant next year....

    Think our O-Line is the problem here, not our runners.

    I know brother. We just dont have the quality of players what we used to anymore. Man of only TT would give a ring to old #4 then this team is set.

    How about we bring back Favre. That Rodgers guy he hasnt done **** sence he started. One man can hope can he.....

    Why not suit up Edgar Bennett? He's close by.

    And all this time I was thinking the Packers needed more receivers.

    I hope this whole thread is a joke. What we really need are some Tight Ends. This is a pass oriented league and we need some real targets for Rodgers. I'm okay with the RB thingy but they had better be able to catch a football. For the love of Pete can we get some talented targets for this QB?
