Excellent.. so when Lacy busts out.. we at least have a back to fall back upon. [grin1]

Maybe.. just maybe, Mike McCarthy and company are serious about establishing a running attack that can be counted on at different times within games.. add a bigger center and we might have something.


Pretty much what I was thinking too. I could see Johnathan Franklin playing more than Eddie Lacy.

This guy looks quite quick in the highlight reel ...

wonder if we'll get rid of all our other backs and keep our 2 new backs and let em rip? ...

be a nice combo - speed and power. Both in the I formation :)

So with Franklin and Lacy (wasn’t there a cop show by that name?), the Packers have a couple of new toys for an offense that typically passes to set up the pass. Though there could be an issue with getting everyone enough reps and touches to keep them happy, the Packers have addressed a chronic need in a big way.

And don’t be surprised if it’s Franklin, not Lacy, who emerges as the better NFL player.



I think this most likely going to happen.

Eddie Lacy might replace Kuhn.

But they're both talented runners, receivers AND pass protectors. Franklin might need a little work, but I'm excited. Very excited!

Kuhn's getting to be 30, no? Thought he was losing a step late last year.

You bring up a good point. With these two guys added to the group everyone on the team in that group is on notice for sure.

ya I agree - he didn't have a great year last year ... still don't want to discount him thou - he was a good run blocker and short yardage guy (lots of nice TDs)

This could be my favorite pick of the draft. Hard to pass on Lacy earlier I understood them taking him but getting both of them was amazing. I would if every once in a while they will go with both of them in the backfield. Should have have double TE or 3 WR when they do?

Zero2Cool (59m) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (1h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (1h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (1h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (3h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (3h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (3h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (4h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (4h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (5h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (5h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (5h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (5h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (6h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (6h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (6h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (6h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (6h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (8h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (12h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (17h) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (21h) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (21h) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (21h) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : I'd rather sit them than play them too compromised.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Yeah, Z. More pressure cooker talk and smoked turkeys.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : If this were a regular-season game, Nelson, Adams and Allison probably would not play, MM says.
Smokey (19-Jan) : Mason Crosby is ill, hope it's not the Flu.
Smokey (19-Jan) : Great, can we move past that story and get back to the Atlanta game ?
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Packers exec Eliot Wolf has withdrawn his name for 49ers' GM job, as @TomPelissero reported. He didn't feel it was the right time.
TheKanataThrilla (19-Jan) : We'll just have to score TDs then.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : That's what we know.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Crosby, Mason K Illness
