    Breaking news: I'm reporting seattle has traded for bills rb marshawn lynch for 4th in 2011 and cond pick 2012. Great move for 'hawks
    ARe you kidding me? a 4th round pick and a conditional pick in 2012 is all it took? The Packers couldnt' part with that? Really...

      I really admire Ted Thompson but sometimes he really screws things up.

      Thanks to BK for the sig

        It is risky, but by all accounts, Starks is running full speed, and he has been in EVERY RB meeting and knows the playbook since all he could really do during training camp was studying up. Grant didn't really make his impact until around midseason in 2007, perhaps Starks can do the same.

        I will say this, I do like the idea of running the ball with Kuhn LATE in the 4th to run out the clock. By that point, most defenses are tired, and Kuhn is a big mofo. Seems like he'd be more effective eating up the clock in that stage in the game with his North/South running.

        I'm upset that they missed out on Lynch at that price(which was cheap) but I still am not too worried, yet. It is early, and how a team looks now vs later is usually vastly different.

          How are you not to worried? Are running game has been ****ing awful. No 4th rounder will be better then Lynch immediately and they could completely ****ing blow. We don't need that 4th round pick in 2011 but we desperately need a capable ****ing RB and now. I used to like what TT was doing but lately I like him less and less. I don't understand what these 2 ****ing morons are thinking. I have seen enough to know that are RB's ****ing blow and apparently they think something miraculous while happen and Jackson will become good.

            I'm not worried because the Packers are scoring the 5th most points per game so far in the NFL, and that is with the passing offense not really hitting on all cylinders(their strength).

            Colts have been getting by without a run game for years, and in 2008 both the Steelers and Cardinals had 2 of the worst rushing offenses in the league. I'm more worried about the defensive injuries and how easily the Packers were carved up over the middle by Detroit...and how we don't have another rusher opposite clay, than I am about the offense/run game to be honest. The offense will score points, and they proved that when they DO want to run, they were able to late in the game vs Detroit. The D and ST especially are more important

              It would be nice to be able to run consistently and only make this offense more dangerous. It would also be nice to control the ball so our defense isnt on the field so much when its already fairly vulnerable and has mounting injuries. Seahawks 4th round pick should obviously be better then ours still it will be terrible disappointing if we don't try and find anyone at all. An your right the defense and special teams is more important as we will probably watch them get gashed many more times ahead. We had a chance to get an immediate upgrade and at a price we could easily afford to lose. Why not try and upgrade a position that could use a boost.

                They controlled the ball just fine vs Chicago and they were unable to run worth a damn in that game. ST and penalties were the problem there

                I'm not worrying about the run game right now, as the team is 3-1 and its a long way away from dec/january. They either are wanting to see what Nance can do, or perhaps STarks, or maybe they search for other options. Deadline is 2 weeks away

                  I don't think Starks will ever stay healthy. Even if he does, you'd have had:
                  -Marshawn
                  -Starks
                  -Jackson on 3rd downs, which is where he belongs.

                  And for a 4th rounder next year, and a conditional pick? For a 1st-round talent at RB? Who actually wanted to come to Green Bay unlike a lot of other players?

                  *****ng puzzling.
                  TT's built us a good team, but as he did in Seattle, it was always good, never great enough to take that final step.

                  Are we the next Chargers? Team good every year, but never can get to the big game?

                    Well if that's all it took to get Marshawn Lynch, then it won't cost that much (what I had in the survey) to get DeAngelo Williams.

                    As mad as me and PackerLegend feel now over watching Lynch pass over us from NY to Seattle, I would do a 180 and be that happy if we got DeAngelo Williams.

                    Anyone here expect that to happen?

                      I have never seen anything that said Lynch wanted to come to Green Bay.

                      I have seen that Rodgers has lobbied for him. Lynch was unhappy in Buffalo....too small for him....I would bet he didn't want to come to GB.

                        Maybe it was actually the fact the Bills suck? I don't know what type of relationship he and Rodgers had but it was probably decent. I don't see what's great about Seattle? Most be the cold and constant rain.

                          No I don't see Deangelo coming here because he would cost MORE and would be in a diminished role here. If the packers were gonna get a RB they would have gone for the cheaper/decent route in Lynch. Who knows, there might still be others out there

                            I was referring to when he was in Green Bay for a pre-draft visit and people expected us to take him with pick #16. But Buffalo took him earlier.
