Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson sent their message loud and clear to Alex Green, DuJuan Harris and especially James Starks on draft weekend by selecting not one, but two running backs and also picking up another — Angelo Pease — as an undrafted free agent.

Don't know but ya we have a glutton of backs - surprisingly opposite of last year ...

Going to be hard to fit all these guys under the 53 limit.

Just hope Mike McCarthy doesn't keep sending our runners straight up into our Oline like grant is famous of doing

The Packers running game, because of their zone blocking, basically aounts to hitting the line and making one cut. The had to adjust that with Benson because he is more of a smash-mouth kind of guy, but the hit it and cut style is what both Lacy and Franklin do best, and Harris showed he could do that as well. I think that fits in better with what they want to do on the ground.

In addition, Lacy in particular is supposed to be a good blitz blocker, which neither Starks nor Green developed into.

I think with the limitations Stark and Green have and in particular the injury history on Starks, I don't see either guy making the final cut unless there are injuries or unless they really tear it up in the preseason.

Zero2Cool (13m) : Capers presser summed up? INjuries are why we suck. (shut up, coach and adapt)
Zero2Cool (16m) : nearly crapped myself hearing dom capers talk, forgot to close the tab after mccarthy haha
Zero2Cool (25m) : McCarthy said the communication was not good enough on defense yesterday. Injuries in secondary have complicated substitution patterns.
Zero2Cool (31m) : McCarthy again says "I believe in him"... sorry, BS, we saw how you believe in him yesterday.
Zero2Cool (52m) : @The_Green_Gold Highest graded players Kenny Clark & Blake Martinez. It wouldn't be possible to grade an entire defense
Porforis (1h) : Well, it WAS clean until someone 'shouted' in it...
Zero2Cool (1h) : QB Brett Hundley when targeting a WR against Saints: 6-for-15, 54 yards.
