This run game is very exciting to watch. That's for sure. Even while the Bears were stacking the box, these two were running all over them.

Lacy, Franklin, then Starks.

I'd put Lacy ahead of Starks but I'm not really sure why. Part of it is because he is a rookie and I want to believe we finally drafted the guy who is going to resurrect our running game. Part of it is because I can't help but think that although Starks has great numbers, he has had fewer opportunities and I don't think he could keep it up as consistently as Lacy. In other words, If Starks had all of Lacy's carries I don't think his numbers would have been as good. I don't even know why I feel that way.

Simply by looking at the numbers you would think Starks would be the better back and who knows maybe he is.

All I know is that I like it. I'd like to see Starks get a fe w more touches per game and Franklin as well. Maybe 18- 20 total for Lacy 8-10 or so for Starks and maybe half a dozen for Franklin (trhat includes receptions not just carries)

Still, it's kind of hard to argue with what is going on so far. The next several weeks will be a real test. If our opposing defenses don' have to worry about Rodgers what will they be able to do to our running game.

Starks is on a pitch count until he proves he can stay healthy.

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks is the only player in the NFL this season to post three touchdown runs of 25 yards or longer.

Lacy & Starks, not Lacy vs Starks. Keep everyone's legs fresh by spreading the wealth around.

The nice thing about running against a stacked box is they all can't converge on the ball carrier. If the runner can get through the first line of the defense he could run for awhile. As we have seen.

Lacy is a workhorse kind of a runner. He can pound on the defense for a while. Starks makes a nice change of pace back who can slash through and get some yards for you while the Big Dog is catching his breath.

Revisiting this for curiousity sake. I think Starks role is fantastic and think he's doing awesome as a part time player. When he comes onto the field, he looks like he could break it deep.

Eddie Lacy
263 attempts
1,112 yards
4.2 average
60 long
3 20+
10 TD
58 first downs



James Starks
78 attempts
405 yards
5.2 average
34 long
4 20+
3 TD
24 first downs

Edit, ProFootballFocus has Eddie Lacy ranked as the 3rd best RB in the NFL behind LeSean McCoy and Jamal Charles. I would just like to remind everyone that I predicted the Lacy greatness the second he was drafted.

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.
