Why show all your cards in regular season games?
2 years ago nobody knew who Starks was when he took the field.
Unfamiliarity works for a little while in the NFL.
James had a good run throughout the playoffs, but as has been stated before, his practice habits and other things have seemed to keep him from becoming a #1 or at least a #1A running back.
Go to packers.com and watch the latest(after Texan game) Mike McCarthy Show, Randall Cobb was the guest player.
Wayne Laravy(sp?) and then a member of the crowd both asked about Randall Cobb being more involeved in the offense.
The answers will make you laugh.
I posted in the other thread, I believe Mike had a plan against The Jaguars and he stuck with it.
Like it or not, the five guys that are the Packers o-line are the best option The Packers have.
I'm gonna give it a little more time before claiming Alex Green cannot be an every down back.
I have faith Mike McCarthy will come up with a plan that will work.
My prediction, when needed the most, don't know if it is this week or sometime later in the year, Mike will bust out some type of wildcat package featuring Randall Cobb.
Without Greg and now Jordy(hopefully he's back this week), The Packers need someone to become the go to playmaker and IMHO that guy is Randall Cobb.

Packers | Alex Green to remain the starter
Tue, 30 Oct 2012 12:50:03 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB Alex Green will remain the team's starting running back over RB James Starks due to his breakaway speed. The team would rather continue on with Green as the lead back rather than trade for Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams or St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson, too. General manager Ted Thompson prefers to save salary cap space so he can work on contracts for LB Clay Matthews, DT B.J. Raji and QB Aaron Rodgers.
