I'm fairly sure the Packers are not gonna draft either a center or RB, not before the 5th or 6th round anyway. The O Line will be OK with what we have. Great college centers often don't do great in the NFL. The big keys are Sherrod coming in healthy and playing like a first round pick and Bulaga getting over whatever his problem was even before his season-ending injury. If that happens, Harris, Green, maybe Starks, and maybe even Grant will look pretty good. Yeah, maybe Saine too.

I agree with the general sense of this. I don't know that we have to pin our hopes on Sherrod though, and don't really think we should. He sounds like a Flanagan long shot to return healthy enough to contribute. What was that? Like, a 4 or 5 year window with him?

However, I do think Newhouse could show improvement this year, and I have a sense Andrew Datko may be a player in all of this. He was first round talent with a bum shoulder when we drafted him the end of the 2012 draft. He's had a full year to recover and train at a pro level. This may prove to have been an awesome selection by Ted after all is said and done.

I think we'll draft a C. I think we have to, and I wouldn't mind if they nab one of the best of the draft in the first 3 rounds.

By the way, here is a fun trivia question:

With respect to his own peers, who had statistically the greatest rushing season of all time?


What criteria are you using?

If rushing yards; OJ, 1973 had 2003 yards; 2nd was Green Bay's John Brockington, with 1144, a difference of over 800 yards. No one else was even close to creating that kind of differential.

NOTE: 1973 was a 14 game season, not the current 16 game season.

Rushing efficiency, as opposed to cumulative statistics. I haven't glanced at the numbers, but I am guessing Simpson had a lot more reps than Brockington.

Strange. I posted a response yesterday, but now it's no longer in the thread. Not sure what happened to it.

Anyway, in 1973 OJ rushed 332 times for 2003 yards, and John Brockington rushed 265 times for 1144 yards, a difference of 67 carries for 889 yards (12.8 yards per carry).

So, I'm curious on how you are defining rushing efficiency and also curious as to who you say the answer to your trivia question is, if it's not OJ.

A wild guess: Bobby Douglass, the Bear QB, not the Packer LB. Perhaps you mean his "peers" were QBs. He rushed for 988 yards in 1972 - a 14 game season.

lol...then how about William "Refrigerator" Perry, with two rushing TDs in 1985? I don't think any other DL had any that year...

Bobby Douglass' numbers (968?) are impressive, but Vick ran for more yards (1039) on fewer carries in 2006.

Am I correct in my assumption that you're working on a CRBR (Complete Running Back Rating) similar to the CQBR you posted earlier?
