Are their RB's cursed or something?

Our running game literally couldn't be anymore screwed right now. Starks still out and never able to stay heathly, Benson gone, Green is trash, and Saine can't get snaps over him so he can't be too much better. Randall Cobb very well may be our best player on the roster for RB right now. And I'm not kidding.

Wow.

They should bring in Tim Hightower. he isnt great either but I do think he is better than those you listed.

Was hoping he could find some success in GB. Wasn't that big of a fan of his but always appreciated how he ran hard (although went down easily)...

Orlovsky has too much experience here. Manziel doesn't stand a chance.

Honestly he was very, very good before he got hurt. Our offense has been off all year but with him running consistently we were at our best. Huge loss given how poorly we have played when we have abandoned the run. McCarthy gets frustrated when it isn't working way to easily and Alex Green won't help that at all.

Benson was playing pretty good from what I saw, tough loss for the Packers. Not sure who they can turn to at this point, the free agent pool is very thin.

GB should really inquire about a trade with CAR for one of their HB's, with the way CAR is playing, i dont see why they wouldnt listen

The Packers certainly have the cap space to entertain the idea of DeAngelo Williams, but that doesnt seem very "Packer like" from how have accustomed to them running things. I think they will probably stick with Greene and Starks, and sign some scrub off the street.

Give us a first rounder for McFadden? Let the complete roster overhaul begin...

I liked some of what I saw from Green. He should get a shot at starting and he probably will.

Green's vision isn't great but i liked what i saw from him a few times. I'd definitely go with Green/Cobb/Kuhn than anything with starks in there.
