If the Packers had stuck with the 55th pick in the second round, would they have selected running back Montee Ball instead of Eddie Lacy?Kevin Seifert proposes the question at ESPN. During the draft last Friday, the Packers traded their 55th pick to the 49ers and moved down to No. 61 and then took Lacy (Green Bay also received a sixth-round pick). The Broncos scooped up Ball three picks earlier at No. 58.An interesting part of Seifert's story is Denver's decision to take Ball over Lacy. The Broncos say it came down to Lacy's injury history. It was also reported that the Steelers passed on Lacy because of toe fusion.We know that the Packers appeared comfortable taking a running back in the second round - at least with the 61st pick. Had the Packers not traded with the 49ers, however, it would have been interesting to see if the 55th pick could have been Lacy, Ball, or someone else.Read Seifert's story here.

If I had caught Demi Moore before her first audition outside the studios, I'd have had a real shot at tagging her in her prime.

If these lottery tickets I have in my wallet hit, I might get a crack at an around the globe tour.

If I knew those woods were going to take my golf ball today, I'd have aimed more left.

I would think maybe they were OK with either and figured one or the other would be there at 61. Before the draft, I wanted Montee Ball - maybe a little bit of homerism, but I expect him to have an excellent career too. I am now totally psyched up for Eddie Lacy, though. If part of his greatness was running behind the 'Bama O Line, and the Packers O Line is relatively worse - in a NFL sense anyway, there is something that will MORE than make up for that: I refer to the element to surprise running for a strongly pass-first team - as well as having fewer defenders in the box when he runs for the Packers.

We obviously had Lacy over Ball on our draft board. I mean either would be great players for us, but I don't see why everyone wanted Ball so much over Lacy from what I've been hearing.

If you weren't so lame you could come up with better metaphors such as - if I didn't have such a nice ass, Mrs. Dakota wouldn't have grabbed it and I wouldn't have three beautiful daughters. [neener]

ARE YOU KIDDING EVEN?!

Either of them are better, at least in prospective theory, than any backs we've had in forever. For years now our running game has amounted to nothing more than a few brilliant flashes in an otherwise transparent attempt at hammering square pegs into round holes. Getting an "iffy" dude on the level of Lacey at this point (Gee, who's our QB again?) is like some sort of ridiculous thought which almost makes me feel guilty when thinking about how potent it could make our offense.

I suspect the thought with the trade down was that one of the two might be there. Not sure what Ted thought of Montee Ball though. I'm glad we added both Lacy and Franklin, and I see an entirely new day on offense for Green Bay as a result.

Cannot wait to see Lacy as Spin Bot! Cannot wait to see Franklin knifing through opposing secondaries. Not sure what to say about Ball. Tough runner, a little upright, not much break away speed. Lotta miles on that odometer. I like who we got, very much so.

This will help extend drives, control games, save Rodgers from all out pass rushes, make our passing game -better-!, and keep our D off the field.
