That's not football shape, but considering he went through a training camp and was on the Redskins roster early in the season it shouldn't take him long to be ready.

Mortenson also reported that Ryan Grant received a standing ovation from all the players when he reported today for practice.

Grant was and is again an experienced vet younger guys look up to.

With the reports saying James Starks may be lost for the season, Ryan Grant could once again become a very important part of the running game in Green Bay.

Let's hope there is just enough left in the tank for RG to make a difference.

4 regular season games left, 4 playoff games, I'm guessing 10-15 touches a game, that's only 80 min to 120 max for the rest of the season, IMHO Ryan Grant will show he can handle that load.



love it

Also last time, they chose to double team Suh and leave D-Smith one on one with Fairly... D-Smith is struggling and that didn't turn out too well. I'm not sure if this would do better... but I'm wondering if doubling Fairly and Sitton vs Suh one on one might be better for the Packers... not sure though... cause Suh is a beast... and he'll hit you where the sun don't shine.


Our running backs are going to struggle, and it has nothing to do with the defense. They are going to struggle because we can't block them for shit.

If we ran straight at them, we could take their athleticism out of the picture.

I am changing my predictions after knowing that Saturday's dinged up and Starks is gone.

This will have more to do with playcalling. If McCarthy can spread out the defense both on the ground and in the air, most notably the defensive line, we'll have a lot more success. We're outmatched up front, and we need to wear down their D line early and limit ARod's vulnerability.

I really don't see Alex Green getting 30 touches per game.

I doubt RG will be ready for that many touches(10-15) this week, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see when The Pack plays The Bears and beyond.

From all I have read James Starks isn't coming back anytime soon, Ted didn't bring Ryan Grant back just to stand on the sidelines.

If Ryan Grant is anywhere near the RB he was at the end of last year, he will be effective enough.

Ryan Grant replaced the RB on IR, not James Starks. Grant is also averaging 5 yards a carry this season!!!
