This season is just a fricken nightmare so far. Thank god we recently got another Super Bowl championship.

When I want to watch the Packer team I know we have, I just bring up the Falcon playoff game off the DVR and smile. It's like that shot of happy juice the anesthesiologist gave me prior to my appendectimy.

Hopefully Stark's benching will have made an impact on him and he'll step it up.

That sucks big time. Benson was a welcome site on the gridiron for the Packers. Back to our no-name do-nothing running game.

I have read that depending on the type and severity of the Lisfranc injury that this injury can be career ending.
Not saying that this will be the case with Benson but I'm doubting he will be back this year.

As much as I absolutely LOVE Benson and want to see him stay in Green Bay, maybe Benson and Raji going down and getting our asses handed to us yet again is the wakeup call this team needs. At least it'll be a change.

Personally I would like to see more of Alex Green and Brandon Saine,


Past Benson, I firmly believe that Saine is our best multi-tool back on the roster. Green has the look of a home run hitter.. Starks runs high but hard.

Saine seems to be, in my opinion, the most balanced back we have available to us now.

Snakebit.. Don't believe that. Past this and Bishops injury, biting themselves, yes that I will buy into.

And the refs have been on us all year...There was another phantom pass interference call on Shields in the Colts game where the receiver obviously pushed Shields in the back but they called it on him instead. This was the drive where the Colts scored a TD and made it 21-19.

Seahawks game really messed with this teams psyche. They are convinced the referee's are out to get them and are focusing way too much attention on them, rather than the opponent.

Sure.. but this has happened before. Weekly teams have calls go against them, we just have a heightened sense of awareness now that we have gotten a game decided by a game.

Perception is a biatch... I agree with Zero, this team has to whitewash that from the memory banks on move on. they can say they have moved on, but body language on the sidelines in the past two games say differently from Mike McCarthy on.

Oh well, the running game hasn't been any more useful with Benson this year than it was with Starks or Grant last year.

the difference is, last year we didn't need it. This year, teams have figured out our pass offense and we NEED the balance in order to be successful at all.

Oh, we needed it, to go 19-0 and win another SB. Didn't happen.

I have confidence that the RBs we have on the roster will do just fine for us. Really too bad about Benson, as I thought he could have had a special season running the ball in GB.

Not useful to McCarthy apparently. But seemed pretty useful to the Oline and Rodgers.

When committing to the run, 0 sacks. When not commiting to the run, do we even want to list the number? 21.
