Ahman Green was one of the top backs in the NFL during his prime and Green Bay didnt run a zone blocking scheme for most of his time here. Morency did good 2 years ago but didnt play last year or match Ryan Grant's production. Grant may be another Samkon Gado who knows.... just want him signed to a fair deal and see what he can do with a whole season.

I do, and he's nothing like Samkon Gado

I wasn't saying he is Samkon Gado or similar just that he could be a one year wonder. Seeing how ineffective our rushing attack was until Grant showed up, leaves me hope that he was part of the reason it improved so much.

I know you weren't, but I've seen people say it before and there's nothing behind it. They were both in RBs that started midseason for the Packers; the similarities pretty much end there. They are completely different runners and Grant has a lot more talent. I'm amazed that Gado had the success that he did because he really wasn't good.

Parker and McGahee are certainly too high and am I the only one who thinks Marshawn Lynch is overrated? I mean he had a decent rookie season but nothing worthy of top ten recognition

Also, Brandon Jackson and others did not do nearly as well in the same system.
He has great vision, and good speed, and very good agility, which is why the Packers wanted him for that specific zone system. They run alot of formations with 2 full backs, and run inside zone, and outside zone playside, and they run a simple lead backside, and all grant has to do is read playside, and if he doesn't like what's going on, just follow the backside FB leading on the backside LB.

And they do this from every formation, and tag their TE and bring him back into the backfield as a full back. While Grant is a good back for that system, it's really the creativity on offense, in terms of plays drawn up, and formations installed they use. Also, a good o-line helps make it even easier for Grant.
