GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Green Bay Packers either believe in running back James Starks or think Eddie Lacy's concussion won't keep him out for very long. Whatever the case, coach Mike McCarthy on Monday indicated that general manager Ted Thompson likely won't sign a running back this week after a concussion knocked Lacy out of Sunday's 38-20 victory over the Washington Redskins. "We're putting together a game plan based on the people that are here," McCarthy said.

My concerns for the run game are not eased at all. Skins run D was not expected to be stellar to begin with. And The game being so out of hand running is expected.

My concerns will be eased when the oline can create holes for a good running game early and consistently in a game.

It's all about our O Line and the run defense we are up against. Starks had some good holes; He didn't really have to cut or run to daylight. Lacy could have done the same; Franklin could probably have done the same, or Harris or Green if we still had them.

I suppose there are a lot of tougher run defense teams than the Redskins, but all of them will need to be in a "stop Aaron Rodgers" mode, so if our O Line can be even minimally effective, the holes should be there. If Lacy is gonna be an upgrade, it will be in the form of yards gained after contact - breaking tackles. I see hope of that in space, but he doesn't seem any better than anybody else when he is stood up at the line or in the backfield.

It was great to see 100+ on the ground for a change - something we haven't seen in some time. It should be noted that Washington got ran over in week 1 as well, so this isn't "proof" that this can be done on a weekly basis (although I hope so.) This will be a topic of discussion throughout the season for sure, and I hope to see more games with good balance like we saw Sunday. The thing that stuck out most to me was seeing off tackle running rather than trying to cram it up the gut every carry.

The OL did well opening things up - even if it was against D that has yet to stop the run well. If they can do this in the next game I will feel better about the ground game. On to Cinci!Lets Box!

Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
