      i don't think you should worry about something like that.

      Our RB coach was in love with everything Lynch did and pushed for the Packers to draft him, so hopefully the Packers do try and trade for him :D

        Dmitri Nance was verrry impressive this preseason, for those of you who weren't watching. Once upon a time Ryan Grant was one of those practice squad gems who couldn't crack the regular squad because of a deep, etched group ahead of him. Let's not completely roll our eyes at their decision to sign him. They should still find room to add another back, possibly through trade, though not for a marquee name like Lynch I don't think.

          Forte was the 2nd highest scoring RB in my league, Cutler the 3rd highest scoring QB, Knox and Aro are legit 2nd/3rd options at WR, the guy I played this week got some points from Chester Taylor....they aren't that bad of a fantasy team.

          Of course I have Devin Hester of the group.... :/

          It's going to take him some time to adjust though. It's not like he was activated from their own PS and will know their playbook and stuff. As a runner, that may not be as big of deal, but on that offense, his pass blocking and routes out of the backfield will be arguably more important.

            Grant has been very underrated, and it irritates me when some Packer fans would complain that he's not fast enough. He was solid, and he didn't fumble, or get arrested.

            But RB is not a complicated position to replace, and there are tons of guys who can come in and do well, in this offense, if Brandon Jackson and John Kuuuuuuhn don't last long.

            But I can't believe Dimitry not a russian Nance is THE BEST option out of all 32 practice squads or trade possibilities. Maroney only cost a 5th round pick essentially.

            Marshawn Lynch must be able to be had for that same price, or less, with his misconduct suspensions under his belt.

              I love Grant, always have but I would kill for a McCluster play making type out of the backfield. Not to replace Grant but to spell.

                Me too, but Dimitri Nance is what we're getting. That's it.

                  I mocked them Jaquizz a few weeks ago....he or Devine would look sick with their speed in that offense. Spread things out and give it to them on a draw, watch him burn through defenses.

                  Scares me as a Bears fan.

                    Maroney blows, I'm glad the Pack didn't try for him. He dances waaaay too much in the backfield. Lynch or Fred Jackson would be their best bet if they were to look for a RB

                    again though, with how Thompson operates, I'm not holding my breathe on a trade coming anytime soon, if at all

                      Please, just leave Fred Jackson's name out of this thread. No reason to even speculate on that.

                      And trust me, Lynch's movements in the backfield aren't that much better. He has the tough-running reputation, but all he usually does is dance and then run directly into a guard.

                        If the Bills aren't going to use Jackson much, they might as well trade him.

                          Meh, Let's see what Jackson can do. If there's one aspect he's better at than Grant it's pass protection and catching the ball out of the backfield which could help Rodgers out.

                          I bet we'll see a lot of Quinn Johnson/John Kuhn combo this Sunday.

                            The Packers don't need a running back until Week 7 or so, let's see how we hold up. Our schedule is WEAK for the opening half.

                              Do people actually think Marshawn Lynch is good? Am I the only one who doesn't like him at all or something?

                                I don't like him a ton, but we're really weak at the position so I'd definitely take him if the price is right.
