It took six years, but Jim Taylor never wavered on his road to recovery. The Green Bay Packers' Hall of Fame fullback and tireless fitness fanatic suffered a stroke in 2004, the first serious setback of his life.

Taylor was a very under rated running back. He was always close to Jim Brown in rushing yards and he had to share the ball with Hornung. He caught the ball well also, and blocked, which Brown refused to do. Living in Ohio, I got nauseated hearing about how great Jim Brown was. Look at old clips. He was good, but look at his offensive line. Maybe one of the best in the history of the NFL. He had monstrous holes to run thru. After he retired, Leroy Kelly picked up right where Brown left off. Any back would look like a world beater behind that OL.

Too young to have seen him play, but what I've heard about Taylor is that he'd break into the open field and actually LOOK for people to run over. LOL. He wasn't necessarily running to daylight.

Nerdmann, Yes, he was as tough and hard nosed as they come. I would compare him being in Jim Brown's shadow to Sterling Sharpe being in Jerry Rice's shadow. Both never got the recognition they should have.

Zero2Cool (4h) : Maybe this little shout has no value if people gonna use it instead of the forum.
Zero2Cool (4h) : He's not writing. He's shouting, and its making the shout kind of without point with the clutter.
buckeyepackfan (9h) : Just like last year at 4-6. The guy is just too funny!
buckeyepackfan (9h) : GOOD news Uffda is already all but writing The Packers off for 2017!
uffda udfa (14h) : Masturbation talk from Barfan? Nothing could make me COME back, quicker.
wpr (15h) : Maybe the shout box needs to take a timeout. People keep using it. ;)
Zero2Cool (15h) : Why do this is in shout? So frustrating. Post in forums. Thanks
Barfarn (15h) : Masterbation will relieve some of that nervous tension!
uffda udfa (17h) : Now, a guy they really liked and have groomed for 3 years is the guy. Tons of toys on O. Let's see how it runs with a great coach, now.
uffda udfa (17h) : The Flynn Patriots game has been used to say that he is. Seneca and Scott showed otherwise.
uffda udfa (17h) : Hundley is going to settle the debate once and for all in whether Mike McCarthy is a great coach, or not.
uffda udfa (17h) : Doesn't speak well to the talent acquired by the org, does it? Easy to say talent is great until Rodgers is gone and you have to see it wit
Porforis (18h) : Could Sam Bradford come into the Packers and post a winning record from here on out? Are there any non-starters in the NFL that could?
Zero2Cool (18h) : Teddy is replaceable. Aaron is not. Vikings have a really good defense. We do not. Understand??
Zero2Cool (18h) : You are wise enough to know the difference. Right?
uffda udfa (19h) : Here's one for you, Z. Vikes lose Teddy B. and go out and aggressively get Bradford. Packers lose 12 and go out and get a UDFA.
uffda udfa (19h) : :) Evans had a pre-draft visit with Packers.
Zero2Cool (19h) : Put it in a topic. My lord why so difficult lol

uffda udfa (19h) : Oh, Jerod Evans formerly of Va Tech is our Hokie QB plan
uffda udfa (19h) : Was previously on Eagles PS
uffda udfa (19h) : Tweeted the below due to huge chip on his shoulder for going undrafted after leaving early.
uffda udfa (19h) : Packers add Jerod Evans to PS. He went undrafted: https://twitter.com/rodfor6_/status/858382534274682884
Smokey (20h) : NO a 6 point favorite to beat the Packers in GB .
Zero2Cool (17-Oct) : Yes!!!!!
Porforis (17-Oct) : "I said that too. Why don't you quote me?? I'm famous!" - Zero2Cool
Zero2Cool (16-Oct) : I said that too. Why don't you quote me?? I'm famous!
uffda udfa (16-Oct) : @ProFootballDoc says Rodgers could return Week 14 at earliest, and surgery speeds up return timeline.
Zero2Cool (16-Oct) : McCarthy dropped a "bullshit" on packers.com stream. No delay apparently lol
Zero2Cool (16-Oct) : @AaronNagler One thing is crystal clear: McCarthy is pissed at the way his team played yesterday.
Smokey (16-Oct) : 2017 Packers are done , time to focus on the 2018 NFL Draft .
Zero2Cool (16-Oct) : Mike McCarthy says Aaron Rodgers "suffered a significant injury". Will require surgery. Potentially season could be over.
