Green's been ok but disappointing.

There's been times he was swarmed under, but there have also been too many shoestring tackles and one play where he fell down untouched when an enormous hole opened up in front of him. He still got like 5 yards on that play.

There was a play by Cobb AND a play by Kuhn where each of those guys bounced off the pile after getting stuffed and gained significant yardage.

Not sure what it is, but I'd give Green one more game, then I'd start feeding Starks to see what he could do. Starks can always fall forward for 1.8 yards a carry, which is what Green averaged today.

All purpose, Green was 2.8 per touch, iirc.

And really, Kuhn is as slow as you can be and still play in the league, but with his cutting ability, he still gets yards. Give Green a little more of a shot, then Start working in Starks. If HE can't get it done, just go with Kuhn.

I'm sick of this Bjack crap.

he did just enough to by Aaron Rodgers time to throw the ball. We are not looking for a guy who will get 150 yards rushing. He did get some key yards on passes to give them a first down. Don't make him one dimensional.

And the pick lost would have been Casey Hayward?



Edit, correct, Seahawks gave up a 4th in 2011 and conditional in 2012.
Packers 2011 3rd rounder was Alex Green and who knows what would have been required for the conditional pick, as it would have been lesser since the round was higher.

I'd have to check that play again, but I believe he slipped on the logo on the field. I think that happens quite often. A couple of the swarmed tackles were totally blown blocks or lack of blocks completely.

Green did pretty good last week. Is he a starting back in the NFL? No, but his role was not to be the starter going into the season. I would like to see them work Starks in a little. I am hoping his pride and desire to stay in the league will push him to play like we saw him on our Super Bowl run.

haha wow... The guy didn't do half bad. Made some great catches and got us first downs. You're to hard on him, it's his 2nd game starting for crist sake and we've won both times he's carried the rock. He's carried the ball for 40+ times in 2 games that's good enough in my book!

I think Zombie said he'd get 35 on 20 carries? The man is psychic.

I don't know why everyone pisses and moans about the running game when we haven't had a center to run behind since Mike Flanagan. Until we draft a blue chip center, we are not going to have a legitimate running game. A couple weeks ago, I called for Saturday's head because I think we would be better served with EDS out there. Today TJ Lang had his ass handed him, so when your guard and center are getting pushed back towards the quarterback, would someone please explain to me how it is we are going to be able to rush the football?

Our Oline is built to pass block, period. It's probably a good thing we have an elite QB to build that type of Oline around, right?

nope. just north of 2-0. If they had AP or Lynch, Gore or Charles would they have won any more games?

If those backs had played for GB would they have still had the same number of yards that they got the past 2 games? nope. If they had been with GB would Aaron Rodgers had fewer yards passing? yes.

Yeah really, that small amount of yardage against such a horrible defense. The Rams don't have any talent on D...

Oh yeah- their ENTIRE d-line is made up of first round picks and they have the 5th ranked best defense in the league. 20 carries against a defensive line that was almost always in the backfield each touch, what do you expect? He does the job that we need him to do, catches the ball, doesn't funble, and changes the pace of the game.

Well, Green is still a young back with almost no starting experience. He is also coming off an ACL injury. While he may be 'healthy,' he probably doesn't have the same burst as he had pre-injury yet. That will come in time. Moreover, most the run blocking was complete shit today. There were a few holes, but Green was blown up in the backfield constantly. Could an elite back do a little more? Sure, but probably not a lot. It all starts with the run blocking and the Packer's are piss poor in that regard, unfortunately. James Starks may be able to fall forward for a few more yards sometimes, but that would likely be the only difference. I'm guessing that his toe injury is still pretty sore and the Packers are trying to get by without him to allow him to get close to 100%. They know they need him. Also, Green needs time. He'll improve as he trusts his knee more and more and the game slows down a bit. However, it's never going to get a lot better with the atrocious run blocking. It's just the way it is. At least we will be getting Benson back to get drive for a few extra yards, but that's about as good as it's going to get for Green Bay in the running game.

Benson has not been all THAT spectacular running the ball. He isn't the 2nd coming of Barry Sanders.

2.0 avg vs SF #12 rush defense
4.1 vs #1 Bears
2.6 vs # 6 Seattle
4.7 vs #31 NO
2.9 vs #29 Indy.

One of his 2 "good games" was against one of the worst rush defenses. the other against the best but that was probably as much about wanting to stick it to the team that let him go as anything. The Bears were off balance all day long. Pass rushing when GB was running the ball and being out of position all the time.

uffda udfa (27-Aug) : 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 (27-Aug) : 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 (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : 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 (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!
