It took LJ how many years to start? He broke the Penn State bust mold, but he was still cursed in a way.
Calhun didn't run over his fair share of people. The guy was 5'9" 190lbs in college...if that. Jackson's got 20lbs on him. Calhun was more of a shifty back. Not saying he wasn't good, but I can't see the comparison to Jackson.
Jamal Lewis shouldn't be a packer. I hate to say it, but he's not the Jamal of old. The guy can still play, but there isn't much left.

i really liked Gado and i wanted him to be our starter last year but i realized that the only reason i wanted that was because he was a great story not a great player. we got the better end o the Morency trade.

i think TT would be alright with having Morency start next year, but i'd rather bring someone in.

BTW Calhoun can break tackles.

Id like to draft a RB but if we are going to stick with Morency, a cheap veteran pick-up sounds like a good idea. I think we can get somebody like Chris Brown or LaMont Jordan (once hes cut) for a good price.

Packers G.M. Ted Thompson says he's "perfectly comfortable with Vernand Morency, Noah Herron, P.J. Pope, and Arliss Beach." so says profootballtalk.

You guys really would want Brown or Jordon over Lewis, that just doesn;t make any sense to me.

I wouldn't mind seeing TT go after Willis McGahee. He's done well in Buffalo and they havent surrounded him with anything up there. But Im willing to bet Buffalo's asking price is way too high. Id trade a 4th rounder or something along those lines. I have to admit though Im a little excited to see Vernand Morency get the starting job. I think if he works hard at it, he could be really good.

I hope the Moss deal goes down. He would fit this team nicely for a couple years. I know TT is pretty stubborn when it comes to signing older FA's. But it would benefit this offense. We can't keep relying on rookies every year. Other than that I like what TT is doing. He's prolly laughing as teams sign these FA's to lucrative deals.

If we do trade Rodgers, we would need a veteran QB. Who is available?? I like the idea of grooming Ingle Martin. As far as Im concerned he's shown more potential than A-Rod. Maybe that's going a little too far there, but Im not big on Rodgers. He looks like a little punk too.

but I'm not, I think morency is good enough to be a worick dunn type back, but not an every down all game type guy

Rumor is Ladell Betts can be had in trade and he did look great after Portis went down last year. That said I wonder what Washington might ask for him?

anyone think that TT saying he's fine with Morency starting may just be a smoke screen, so teams may not trade up ahead of us or something?

I think it is a smoke screen. I think he is just using this as a way to get teams off the idea we need Lynch, which might incrase the chance of a possible draft day trade down.

He signed an extension, yes, but certainly a palpable number. Something like a 5 year, $11 million contract.

Probably just rumor though. Every player seems to be on the block this time of year.

I think Ladell may be a little overrated b/c he's one of those players that'll shine in the small doses we get but when the workload his on him for an entire season he won't last

Ronnie Brown is a great back but look at his production when he had to go an entire NFL season w/o Ricky; his numbers and durability dropped. Just a thought

With the trade of Willis McGahee to the Ravens, Marshawn Lynch no longer has a chance to come to green Bay at pick 16 b/c AP will go somewhere in the top 10 and Lynch will not go below Buffalo at 12.
