Grant is the starter, because they want to give props to him as a veteran. Starks has surpassed him. Green and Saine are better than Grant too, imo. They just haven't gotten their shots yet. Not saying that because I have a mancrush. Only because it's true.

This is total speculation. I'm fine with it, but as long as we all agree it's speculation.

Quote:

Agreed. Though Grant has always been a player who seems to heat up with more carries. The one time this year he was given the load, he rushed it 19 times for 92 yards.

You saying it's true doesn't make it true. What evidence is there for either of these guys being better than Rodgers?

That's like saying Matt Flynn is better than Rodgers, he just hasn't gotten a shot yet. You can't say they're better unless you have seen them in a starting role. Brandon Saine hasn't even seen the field once in the NFL as a RB.

To clarify, they haven't gained as many yards in the NFL as Grant, but I believe their skill sets are superior. Hows that? Based upon empirical observation of them in action.

Fast isn't the same as good.

It looks like if Saine gets any action it will be filling in for Starks.

They are both faster than Grant, but that's not the only way they're better.

Please elaborate on the other ways that they are "better".

Receiving, pass pro, cutting, not running into the pile.

Ryan Grant is actually pretty good in pass pro IMO. And I would comment on how good Alex Green and Brandon Saine are at that too but I haven't seen enough of Green and I haven't even seen Saine on the field.

I think if Grant was that good at pass pro, he'd be in on third down. I don't think they take him out because he's the "starter."

He's going to get some increased playing time now. Starks is probably going to be out for at least a few weeks.

I love Grant. He's a great backup. Glad we have him now.
I think Levens was better than Grant, just due to his vision, although I think Levens was also a better receiver out of the backfield and could get to the corner better. I think the high percentage offense and screens that Levens ran made him look better than guys like Starks.

And Jim Taylor was better than both of them. It's such a crying shame we can't have Jim Taylor as our RB. Dammit! ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

What we averaging a game running the ball 65-70. Wake me up when we have a problem. All this does is keeps Starks fresh for the stretch run.

uffda udfa (12h) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (12h) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (12h) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (12h) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (12h) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (12h) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (21h) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (21h) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (21h) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (21h) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (22h) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : Tolzien being evaluated for concussion. What?
hardrocker950 (23-Aug) : wow... what a joke
dhazer (23-Aug) : Cheese heads are everywhere donot be sureprised ifor we are louder
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : And you're wearing a Ben jersey... sad!
dhazer (23-Aug) : Hello from Heinz field
dhazer (23-Aug) : Anyone else going to be at the big ketchup bottle of Heinz Field
Mucky Tundra (23-Aug) : TEBOW!
