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.

Shades of 2003?! Three capable starting rushers on the roster? I LIKE.

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?

hardrocker950 (3h) : Just wonderful - my pick em didn't register....
beast (12h) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (13h) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (13h) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (13h) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (13h) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (28-Sep) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : . Aaron Rodgers has a completion percentage of 33.3 on 10+ air yard passes this season (tied for the lowest in NFL).
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : High-ankle sprain could sideline Cook
Zero2Cool (26-Sep) : Odell Beckham Jr, Dez Bryant, Alshon Jeffery and Julio Jones on tap for Packers. Yippie.
Cheesey (26-Sep) : Arnold Palmer was a class act all around. RIP
Smokey (26-Sep) : Rest in Peace Arnold Palmer, you blessed us all .
hardrocker950 (26-Sep) : What a strange weekend of football
jdlax (26-Sep) : What's up, friends? It's like bizzaro world right now trailing the Vikings. Blah.
GoPack1984 (25-Sep) : Ryan Fitzpatrick threw 6 interceptions!
TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Cleveland loses.
The_Green_Ninja (25-Sep) : I swear, Jacksonville's hot weather must be a huge advantage. Kept it super close with the Ravens
TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Su'a Cravens with a big INT. A guy I wanted.
TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Can Cleveland win?
Zero2Cool (25-Sep) : T.J. Lang said after one of Aaron Rodgers' TD passes the Packers quarterback head-butted Lang in excitement and said "I'm back."
Zero2Cool (25-Sep) : Terrelle Pryor could see snaps at quarterback
Zero2Cool (25-Sep) : inactives 6 Callahan 37 Shields 42 Burnett 52 Matthews 68 Murphy 95 Jones 98 Guion
Mucky Tundra (25-Sep) : GET HYPE
Zero2Cool (25-Sep) : Packers aim to showcase speed of Ty Montgomery, Trevor Davis
Zero2Cool (25-Sep) : CB Quinten Rollins will start for Shields. Micah Hyde for Burnett. Julius Peppers for Matthews. Kenny Clark for Guion.
Tezzy (25-Sep) : Probably will not be on the top of the Pick'Em leaderboard after today, soaking it in beforehand
Tezzy (25-Sep) : Foosball!
yooperfan (25-Sep) : Game day, tee it up and get this show on the road!
dyeah_gb (25-Sep) : Dyeah! Go Pack!
