I'm just happy to see we can actually win games like this now. It seems like it didn't used to be that way. That's good because there will probably be some games like this in the playoffs.

Yes. He didn't have a lot of snaps though. If I'm not mistaken, we saw a lot more Cobb than Jordy.

I'll take an ugly Chicago Bear type win any day when half our team is limping on the sidelines. I didn't see the second half, but listened to it on the radio. We use to lose a game like this all the time, so it is nice to see us eek it out.

I can't say enough about those young DB's...we're potentially set for quite a while.

When the Packers drafted Perry to be Clay's bookend, who knew they already had that guy on the roster. Walden is having an amazing season! And Moses had what I feel was the play of the game. No fumble on that Stafford scramble, and that game ends much differently...IMO.

Boy howdy, the O-line is in trouble. And I'm not even talking EDS, although he had issues, I'm looking at Mr. Sitton. Fairley smoked him more than once.

CROSBY!!!

Starks didn't have an off the charts kind of game, but there were some very large piles I saw his petite frame moving for some hard earned yards.

Now, on to the Giants. Can we just let them have this regular season game, so we can take the playoff matchup. I'm tired of vice versa!

Petite frame? Perhaps I'm misunderstanding you. The guy is 6'2, 218 lbs. He's a pretty big guy. He's not wide, but he's tall.

As much as I would like to say otherwise, but Fairly has been kicking more than just Sitton's ass as of late. He is playing like Suh should game in and out for the hype. I hate the thought of having that tackle tandem to go up against weekly.

If I was to say though, Saturday was the one that was getting his ass handed to him more so. They left doubles in to protect him even.

Next season, I expect the Packers to shore up the C spot and look for depth across the line.

I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

I'm sure he is bigger than I give him credit for, it just looks to me like he could be snapped like a chicken bone.

Yeah, I don't get it either. But he injury prone it seems. If anything, that could be more because of his size and the fact that he doesn't "run low" very well.

James Starks is an amazing powerhouse. What a great back he is to have playing for the Packers. I hope he can stay healthy and ride this season out in winning fashion. I was very impressed with his play yesterday. He will only get better, and he will break off some big yardage for us. You can see it.

We have to figure the loss of Bulaga hurt the continuity of our run blocking, of which there was little to begin with. Maybe with EDS at LG and Lang at RT for a time we will see improvement there, and some big runs as a result. That is my hope anyway.

OK, no body else gets hurt!

This was a really tough Lions Dline.

Just watched this game again, and what a battle it was. I didn't realize how well AJ Hawk played Sunday. He had a great game. Starks could prove to be something very special if he can stay healthy the rest of the way out. Looking at the blocking, you can tell he wishes he could get a couple of those runs back. Missed a couple of big holes. Our defense was exceptional.

Yes, tall for a RB is actually a liability (from historical purposes). Guys like AP are rare. The best backs since I've been watching football who actually had long careers (in no order) are Wallie, Barry, Emmitt, AP, and Faulk. AP's the only one over 5'10".

These are probably before your time, but maybe not: like Marcus Allen (6'2") or Eric Dickerson (6'3")? Christian Okoye (6'1")?

Gale Sayers was 6-0.
Jim Brown 6-2.
Bo Jackson 6-1.
Chuck Foreman 6-2.
Hershel Walker 6-1.
Edgerrin James 6-0.
Steven Jackson 6-2.
Ricky Waters 6-1.
Otis Anderson 6-2.
Arian Foster 6-2.

Those were and are all pretty good RBs in NFL history, all 6-0 and taller.

Did you have to put Chuck Foreman on that list? When I was a kid it was like every time I watched the Packers/Viking game, Chuck Foreman was ruining my Sunday again.

No shit. He was really an amazing RB. Raw power. Had some moves too.
