I just finished reading the article on Harris. It mentioned that Grant was the leading rusher in the Tennessee game. I got to wondering who will be the leading rusher this week. Instead of a poll I will list the options since it is easier.

Ryan Grant
Alex Green
DuJuan Harris
John Kuhn
James Starks
Aaron Rodgers

I say it will be Harris again this week. Green 2nd.

I think it may very well depend on the field conditions.. heard that they are trying to balance the temperature of the field to make it as close to normal as possible without attracting too much moisture and make it slick.

If they accomplish that.. I will go with Harris because of the impact of his initial burst.. if not.. Grant has proven he can run on a sloppy field.. if the footing isn't great.. Grant.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

It seems like lately we've never ran with Cobb anymore. I loved when we did that, we picked up 10 yards everytime. Hope they unleash him some more against those heavy run stoping teams we'll face.
thanks Post received 1 applause.

you do realize that if he rushes once or twice a game the odds are much greater that he will get 10 yards a carry as opposed to 4 or 5 times a game?

There's no denying he's explosive. Wouldn't mind seeing him on some screens or traps.

Once or twice would be awesome. It sparks drives imo.

To that point Cobb only got more than 1 carry twice this season. Last three games Cobb has played he doesn't have a rush. Maybe took it off the opponent film a little, or just game plan didn't end up calling for it. 13 yard average is pretty nice for his 10 rushes. Most importantly, 7 of his 10 rushes have gotten a first down.

Grant, Harris, Green and Rodgers all go for between 45-50 yds.

Tomorrow "football Guru's" everywhere will asking the question.

How the hell do The Packers keep winning without a 100yd rusher?.

Think Think Think Think Think Think

Honestly, I have this feeling(and I don't know why),this game is not going to be about the running game.

Aaron Rodgers is going to do something epic tonight!!!!

Make sure your dvr's are recording.

You will want to watch this over and over.

at one point (before Harris got thrown for a 8 yard loss) AP had 51 yards and Harris 48 on fewer carries. Loved it.
