Anyone have any information on how the two drafted running backs fared during the first two days of training camp?

Apparently Starks and Green looked to be the more polished running backs, but both Lacy and Franklin displayed flashes of great talent. Starks is looking pretty damn good at the moment, as is Green. Could make the RB battle VERY interesting throughout training camp.

thanks Post received 1 applause.

No offense to you Dodd but doesn't everyone look good in camp? All I really want to hear form the coaches after practice is "no one got hurt" otherwise everyone is having a strong camp. Every year it the same thing around the league. A half a dozen no names are turning heads and when it is all said and done they are still no names except they are out of a job.

Pads come on tomorrow, but both have shown "burst" and receiving ability.

Haven't heard where they are vis a vis pass pro.

Alex Green has been lining up as the starter.

Not always. Starks reports last year at this time were terrible. He was getting yelled at by coaches like every day and fumbling and missing assignments.

Starks lined up as the starter today.

Looks like they're using Franklin as the PR.

Quote:
Terrell Manning was noticed on a blitz from the inside today. TS commented that it "looked like he was shot out of a cannon." The Packers will need some help in the pass rush from Manning, since that is an area of A.J. Hawk's and Brad Jones' games that is not a strength.

In punt drills, Franklin took a large number of the returns, including every one in the final special teams period with no drops (MV).

The no-huddle drill to end practice was dominated early by the defense, with Johnny Jolly and McMillian putting pressure on Aaron Rodgers. He eventually found Jarrett Boykin for a touchdown though to finish practice.

Well to be more specific than "RB X looks great!", Green had a good run with him making a couple of cuts and then accelerating to the outside. Says to me that his knee is better and he's trusting it.

guess we'll see a lot of different backs in preseason tearing it up ... wonder if starks makes a comeback (liked him in our SB run - but then again was tired of seeing grant liked starks different style).

Yeah, you are right, its not always positive. It seems like the vast majority of reports are though so I take them with a grain of salt. I guess with so many positive reports though it does seem to make the negative ones all that much more accurate. I mean if they are going to take the time to put a positive spin on so many players when they do say bad things about one they must really be bad.

A lot of it depends on who is making the report also. It seems that coaches and players (commenting on other players) have a tendency to give higher marks than the media.

Also, the reports like "so and so had a good run or a good catch or a nice interception..." or what ever don't mean too much to me. You know what they say about blind squirrels and nuts. Even the worst NFL players could put together a nice highlight reel if you looked at enough film.

I guess I don't put as much stock in TC as a lot of fans. The players need it to get ready but all it does for me is get my hopes up. Other than the indication that once camp starts the real thing is getting close and injury reports I don't really pay that much attention.

Its the same thing with pre-seaon games. In the 4th quarter of game two when the 8th wr on the team makes a good catch or the 12th DL makes a sack it's hard for me to get excited about it. Well, I get excited about the play and what it does for the team but I don't get too excited about the player. He's most likely gone anyway.
