According to Mr. Ketchup the Packers RB's are standing out. You can check out the video here - link. And James Starks is looking more natural catching the ball.

I liked the announcers analyst. His description of Francklin's speed was encouraging, and his observation of Stark's ability to catch the ball showed James plans on contributing in the passing game as well.

I am concerned with the back up qb position in GB. Maybe a veteran could be signed b/f regular season begins.

IMO, if GB has to go to a back-up QB in a game where its close or we are behind, we are not going to win...

I think James Starks was always "ok" catching the ball, I think his slight is pass protection.

Eddie Lacy just dodged a bullet. He was asked "Barry Sanders or Adrian Peterson" ...

He DID get the answer right!!!

The Rb's are definitely impressing early, this trend continues and I could see The Packers only keeping 5 wr's and 3 TE's on the 53 to make room for more rb's.

Especially if , and I hate it, the rb's contribute on special teams.

Past injuries to rb's on ST plays cause nightmares!!!!
Enjoy the ride – It kicks and just keeps on kickin’. "Stats are for Losers"

One thing that is for sure is that this preseason will be more fun to watch than last preseason which was just watching Harrell get assaulted and Marc Tyler run for 2 yards most of the game.

Sounded like Starks and Franklin caught the majority of the attention today but I know it will be a great competition every padded practice and pre-season game. The depth at this position is crazy awesome. My favorite battle to watch in pre-season along with the DLINE and OLBs.

I enjoy hearing that all four RBs are doing well in camp and I only hope it continues as we get into preseason games. If all four RBs are still performing well, it will be very interesting to see what the Packers do out of the backfield because let's not forget, Randall Cobb is also still taking snaps from the position as well (so far). It will also be interesting to see the fate of DuJuan Harris if these guys continue to play well.

Side note, and maybe I am overreacting...does anyone think Lacy looks a bit fat? I know he has always been a "bigger" player but this recent picture of him made me do a double take. He just seems a bit larger than usual. Probably will be shed throughout camp and preseason...
