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.

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.

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.
