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.

That is indeed unfortunate. Umm...downward spiral anyone?

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.

Not looking at or understanding what a run game does for a team both offensively and defensively is on of my biggest aggravations. At least Zombie is coming along in that aspect. [grin1]

Benson's had problems with this foot before.

Not good.

None of this has anything to do with this years running game with Benson being no better than last years.

Cedric Benson ‏@Cedric_Benson

Out of the boot now. Back to walking in normal shoes very gratifying!

Someone who knows the rules better than I do - help me out. Can Benson play later on this season or is he done for the season legally? (Assuming he's healthy near the end of the season).

I liked Benson's running better than Green's but Green's a better receiver.

This season, the NFL and NFLPA agreed on one player from each team being able to be put on IR with the option to return yet this season. Think DL in baseball, win - win for clubs and players.

I think they have to be shelved for 6 or 8 weeks and then they can return.


I am willing to bet, this becomes more of a staple as it allows more players to be on active rosters each season, gives clubs flexibility on the roster, and allows players to collect more incentive monies. Within a couple years, I think this becomes more of a norm.

I think the minimum is 6 weeks.

Same as the NFL site.. 8 weeks.

Quote:
Previously, any player put on IR was lost for the entire season. Now, if a player is hurt and put on injured reserve after Sept. 4, that player may return to the active roster eight weeks after the IR designation, and the player must be on the IR list for at least six weeks. In addition, a player must be "designated for return" at the time of his IR classification, which means that a team must anticipate a player's ability to return midseason. Teams can't just hope their key injured player will recover in time.
