    Right.... I am mad at the football gods, not Alex or the special teams coach.
    I feel we have had more than our fair share of injuries, especially considering the career-enders to Sterling, Murphy, Collins, etc.

    I'll be honest what I expect or hope for isn't nearly as much as some, but not without reason. I'll be honest if Starks puts up 1200+yards on the ground and 10+ rushing TD's that would mean only one thing: Rodgers is hurt or playing terrible. I'd say we (Packer Nation) should be happy if Starks keeps his average per rush at or above 4 and finishes the year round 800 yards w/ 6 TDs (Green adding another 200-300 yards and a few TD's).

    With our offensive style those numbers are just fine with me. I simply would be happy if he keeps average above 4 ypc, that means when we call his number he's keeping other team honest. Green I feel is going to be that great 3rd down and back up shifty/different style to compliment Starks punishment/absorption style running.

    Thoughts?

    Injured by week 3...in comes Alex Green who can catch, run and blitz pickup, becomes the type of RB Ahman Green was (minus the fumbles) and starks becomes a viable backup. Is that good?
