    I can't believe I'm watching NFL Primetime talk about how balanced our running game is.

    I am not a hater. I Loved seeing Starks and B-Jack today and the win!

    Nothing I said in another thread said anything to say I hate the Packers or TT or James Starks or Brandon Jackson.

    I Still believe Lynch would have been a great addition.


    Great win today!

    Bring on the Falcons! This is a game we can win!

    I doubt we would be in the playoffs if we traded for Lynch. Hawk has been 2 good this season to just trade away. Never thought I would say that.

    I definitely think Lynch is better than Jackson. Starks wins out though.

    I can't say that Lynch is better than Jackson. As a pure runner, yes, Lynch is better, but being a RB in this league is so much more. It's like Woodson, is he the best CB in the league from a pure coverage standpoint? No, but look at all he can do. B Jax is the same way. He can do so much more.

    I don't know how to read that, and don't know what it's based on, but if you're suggesting BJax is better than Michael Turner, Ray Rice, and Darren McFadden, you're reading way too much into those stats.

    Because Starks has more talent and lacks the character issues so far. He had the first big game in a while, and Carrol looks like a genius.

    Im not going to debate each one, but off the top of my head Ray Rice has not had a season that fits his rep. 5 TDs and not a ton of yardage.

    we offered a 4th and Hawk is my understanding. No way that would have been smart had that been played out.

    Hey!

    All I want to say is Sorry for any injection of "what if" or "this and that"!

    I liked Lynch! So what!

    The Packers had what it took today to beat the ONLY team in the NFC I thought they would have trouble with!

    My hypothetical arguments are just that. Its for discussion.

    Great win today!

    I hope the media stay away from just how amazing this team is! Can you think of another team that could achieve so much with so much adversity?

    I still really like this team!

    Go Pack Go!
