Sure, offseason workouts are largely meaningless.  But they meant enough in Green Bay to prompt the team to put a third-year veteran who tore an ACL as a rookie and underperformed in 2012 at the top of the tailback depth chart. Per Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, running back Alex Green currently owns

Seniority for the most part. Will keep the younger backs hungry. This will be a tough competition in training camp given the body to snap count ratio. Pre-season games will be huge!

Yep every position group has intrigue for me this year especially on defense. I will be watching TC with almost as much excitement as the regular season.

Also, I cannot wait to see Quarless play again. I enjoyed his play immensely during our SB run. What a great blocker.

I think this is a motivation tool for the rookies more than anything else - that and a way of not disrespecting either Lacy or Franklin by putting one above the other in advance.

Green will struggle to make the team. He probably will, but he will be 4th after the rookies and Harris, and hopefully he will have some ability to play fullback to enhance his value.

It is hard to say anything about Greens playing ability in the pros with any accuracy.

He was hurt before we saw anything in his rookie year with only 3 carries. Last year he couldn't find enough HGH because Peterson was bogarting. So he wasn't healthy enough to play. He was forced to play because of all the injuries to the other RBs.

Green could easily be the best RB we have. Or the worst.

We really don't know.

uffda udfa (1h) : Sam Shields still having headaches but wants to continue playing.
uffda udfa (1h) : Not harsh. Another failure and playoff embarrassment.

GoPack1984 (1h) : Dismal season? I think that's too harsh.
uffda udfa (1h) : Packers should have never been 4-6. Dismal season.
GoPack1984 (1h) : ...with the current defense.
GoPack1984 (1h) : Good season. Great rebound from 4-6. Would have loved to have seen them go to the Super Bowl and win, but I don't know if that was realistic
uffda udfa (2h) : •thanks Shakespeare.
The_Green_Ninja (2h) : Mike at the end of the day is with the team every day and knows what is needed and not needed. Don't be surprised if Mike helps push the cha
Nonstopdrivel (2h) : Bated*
uffda udfa (2h) : It won't change until Ted is gone. I await that day with baited breath.
uffda udfa (2h) : Nobody has ever lost a championship game by as big of a margin as us. Title Town revolt.
uffda udfa (2h) : Did I hear wrong or was that the biggest beatdown in championship game history? Nice.
Nonstopdrivel (2h) : ndedly fill in all the holes on the roster.
Nonstopdrivel (2h) : I do get the same sort of complacent vibe from the Packers front office that cost Bill Polian his job. You can't rely on the QB to single-ha
The_Green_Ninja (2h) : Thomas Brady has been given tools his whole career. It's up to the Packers to start doing the same.
The_Green_Ninja (2h) : As much as I loved brett, Aaron is right. We need more tools and HE is the QB that deserves the tools
shield4life (2h) : & management
shield4life (2h) : Blame the coaching
The_Green_Ninja (2h) : This is near the same time Brett started saying the same stuff.
uffda udfa (2h) : That is exactly what Aaron is saying. We don't do what needs to be done to win. Same song over and over.
uffda udfa (2h) : Aaron is a troll and a hater and doesn't understand the game. Who is he to say such things?
Zero2Cool (3h) : Probably reading into it wrong, but I think he's saying to front office. Do. More!
Zero2Cool (3h) : Rodgers says "We just gotta make sure we're going all-in every year to win....we can take a big step this off-season"

uffda udfa (4h) : All credit to ATL. Not a word about needing to get better.

uffda udfa (4h) : MM: Ran out of gas but proud of his guys.
