He's not a bell cow, and that's what they need.


? Why would you write him off as not being able to be the bell cow?

Size? MDJ 5'7 208.. bell cow back. Ray Rice 5'8" 212 ... bell cow back. Harris.. 5'8" 208.

Harris is short, but is pretty well put together.. someone like Taylor coming out is what 6'1" and 212.

I guess I don't see the reason to write him off so quickly.. that is all.

No, his size is fine. I don't think he creates, though. Ray Rice is far more elusive. MJD runs over defenders. Harris is a simple player. He hits the hole and gets yardage. Nothing wrong with that, but it's more of a change of pace style. He averaged just over 4 yards per carry on 62 attempts, while facing very little resistance from the defense. Most teams will happily give the Packers those yards, if it means Aaron Rodgers isn’t throwing down the field.

He's not someone that is going to influence a defense. Right now, the Packers need to find two running backs. They need a bell cow and a jack-of-all-trades type of back. A player capable of pass-protection, receiving, and change of pace. That’s Harris, in my assessment. He’s a sparkplug for the offense.

I think that’s great, but I know expectations are somewhat higher. I feel like such a debbie downer, but I believe it's a realistic assessment of the kinda player he's capable of becoming.

I love this kid, and I would have no problem whatsoever going into 2013 with him as our #1 feature RB. I think the coaching and play calling could take some lessons on attitude from this player, and give him a legitimate number of carries to be a top RB in the NFL. Make running the football more of a priority, and change the attitude on offense to what this kid does!
