Remember that James Starks fumble last pre-season game? Starks does, because he's fumbling and bumbling down the depth chart.

Monday and Tuesday practices were started off with DuJuan Harris, Eddie Lacy, Johnathan Franklin, Alex Green, James Starks and Angelo Pease. It's not a good sign when you're down that low.

It is now possible that Starks is released and Pease is the last RB. A guy you don't mind having as a GD inactive. Someone you expect to grow over the next few years.

Hmmm. Yeah, things are not looking good for him here in GB. I still think he has more talent than Green. I want Starks to be a dominant player. Have been wanting for that since we got him.

I like Starks better then Green atm - and most likely more then harris - even thou he fumbled in last weeks game that was a rough hit and tackle (don't fault him for that fumble).

Will be a tough call between Starks and Green. Harris looked much better than either last year, so unless he lays an egg he should be pretty solid. I tend to like Green a little better than Starks, I don't know why. Maybe because seeing some of his runs in college he looked good in space, but he never seems to get there as a pro.

Stop right there! - ... Last year

So lets look at starks - he did great in the SB run up similar to harris last year but IMO starks did even better ... but as we know starks didn't do much the following year (and I forgot why; injured just poor performance or what) ...

So where has harris been since last year? ... oh ya injured and not out there.

So IMO until harris does better then starks then I will believe he is ... doing better then starks. Or better then all our guys since we has rated as the #1 for a bit

I'm not sure I would strictly classify having a tumor removed from your lungs as an "injury"

Starks was given a "wake up" call last TC as well.. couple that with his upright running style which I think ties into his injury history. Personally, I don't think he sticks.

Backs..

Harris
Lacy
Franklin

Depending on count:

Green

Fullback:

Kuhn

Let's remember one thing. Harris was such a great back that he was... unemployed until the Packers picked him up. He immediately became our best back. Wow. That's not exactly saying much. Our backs were all hurt or really bad. Now he has had a, in my opinion, major medical issue. My personal RB depth chart reads:
Lacy
Franklin (Only because he was a high draft pick)
Crap
Crap
Crap

Do you really think many teams are salivating over who we are going to cut? I don't. Not sure Green, Harris or Starks will get picked up when cut. Remember, 31 other teams are looking at 5 or 6 RB in camp right now. Why would they cut one of theirs to pick up one of these medically challenged players?

QC says "Not sure Green, Harris or Lacy will get picked up when cut."
Don't you mean Starks?

lol yeah, I would bet Aaron Rodgers' salary for this year that Lacy would get picked up if we cut him.
