Eddie Lacy might replace Kuhn.

But they're both talented runners, receivers AND pass protectors. Franklin might need a little work, but I'm excited. Very excited!


Kuhn!!! ...

rather they keep Kuhn and get rid of all the other fluff ...

Kuhn's getting to be 30, no? Thought he was losing a step late last year.

You bring up a good point. With these two guys added to the group everyone on the team in that group is on notice for sure.

ya I agree - he didn't have a great year last year ... still don't want to discount him thou - he was a good run blocker and short yardage guy (lots of nice TDs)

This could be my favorite pick of the draft. Hard to pass on Lacy earlier I understood them taking him but getting both of them was amazing. I would if every once in a while they will go with both of them in the backfield. Should have have double TE or 3 WR when they do?

Going to have a nice 1-2-3 punch with Lacy, Franklin and Harris in the backfield.

Cannot wait.

If I were Starks or Green, I'd really focus on pass catching and/or pass blocking this offseason because it'll probably be the only way one of them makes the team at this rate.

A surprising degree of negativity or at least lack of enthusiasm for Lacey in some posts here.

To me, this says they are not 100% sold on Harris being as good as he looked late last season. I certainly don't see Lacey as a fullback, although I doubt that's what you guys were talking about. Using Lacey in short yardage, yeah, but I see him as a 3-down back, although in rotation with Harris and/or Franklin.

I disagree. I think this pick says they are 100% committed to becoming a bigger tougher team. See what I did there? I took your negative and flipped into a positive.

This has nothing to do with Harris, and everything to do with Starks and Green being so unavailable and inconsistent.

We actually have the beginnings of a power running game in Green Bay. Amazing! This may be just what McCarthy needed to get more creative, committed to going to the run. Now, it looks like we have the horses to run all day on anyone. Lots of work to do with our OL in run blocking, but I like where this is going. Franklin in this rotation will be awesome!
thanks Post received 3 applause.

I agree - I might be more excited about our run game this year then our passing (well our passing game is getting boring ... but this might help it out if teams have to respect our runners now).

and like you said p2w - get our Oline to do good with run blocking; we need to run nice screens like the packers used to do with blockers running down field.

Trick question? There is not a Lacey on the team, so Franklin wins by default! :P

I'll jump in on a wager and take Lacy.

What shall we bet?

uffda udfa (17h) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (18h) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (18h) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (18h) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (18h) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (18h) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : Tolzien being evaluated for concussion. What?
hardrocker950 (23-Aug) : wow... what a joke
dhazer (23-Aug) : Cheese heads are everywhere donot be sureprised ifor we are louder
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : And you're wearing a Ben jersey... sad!
