No one said Ryan Grant doesn't ever fumble. Cute, putting words in people's mouths when you have no ground to stand. Most are saying Ryan Grant isn't prone to fumbling, and that it was more so a good play by the defender than a propensity of fumbling by the ball-carrier.

Yeah, well I'm saying it's horse pucky that we had to go to he scrap heap for Grant as a last resort, where there are others here that feel he should have been on the roster all season. And I don't put words in people's mouths, I have a memory from their body of work as posters. Buckeye and I always bust each other's balls and I don't recall asking for a mediator.

Saw this on PFT just a few minutes ago.


That link's a link to their rumor mill section which constantly changes. Here's a link to the article in question:

I remember RG running roughshod over Seattle that game. 200+yds, again shit happens,

Sounds like Green will be back, so RG can finish off Titans after Green and Harris soften them up.

Driver broke his thumb several weeks ago, that's the main reason he was very limited and finally inactive.

I Still say Packers will need him when playoff time comes around.

Without Veteran leadership, all you have is "a bunch of young guys full of potential",

The playoffs are a different animal, Woody,DD, & RG will all contribute, even if it's not on the field.

If I recall RG had on some kind of rubberized arm bands at the start of the game. They were slick in the snow. After the two fumbles he took them off and didn't fumble again.

It was more a equipment issue than RG being fumble prone.

Didn't Ahman Green have the same trouble with those?He switched to cloth ones and his fumbling problem was greatly reduced.

Yeah and when Peanut Tillman punches the ball out, it's not a fumble, it's a forced turnover. Face. Palm. Excuses are like Asshole , everbody has one. Rock On!

Troy you don't have to be an ass about this. We get it that you feel Grant is fumble prone. I personally have not comment on him one way or the other. He has not had enough carries this year to be classed one way or another.

As for the playoff game I simply said that could have been additional factors. He is guilty of the fumbles. Whether the arm bands contributed or not it was his fault.

Being all pissy doesn't get your point across any better.

I just think Grant sucks and should be collecting his NFL pension not a paycheck, Driver too. I could give a shit about fumbling.

I understand. I was not keen on his return either. But with 3 weeks left in the season I can see why Uncle Teddy picked him up. The learning curve is shorter for him than some raw rookie. I would have preferred that he sat on the bench in street cloths all three weeks but with injuries that isn't going to happen.

Sucks?

9 rushes for 45 yards. That sounds like the best RB on our team.

12 rushes for 58 yards 1 td 0 fumbles is gooder
