I love to see the run game get in a rhythm, I actually think Starks could but MM refuses to let the running game get in a rhythm.

I sort of like this signing. Bensen has been a feature back before, but make no mistake. He clearly benefited from a very strong O-line in Cinnicinatti. His YPC is low and he cannot create his own space. He takes what the O-line gives and plows forward.

With all that said though, he doesn't kill drives. I'll take consistent 3 yard carries so that the passing game can flourish.

Definitely fits the bill as a "Packer Person".

Is this actually official? Or is it still just speculation?


Official speculation. (Signing expected to come this weekend I believe)

He sucks but I don't see the harm in this signing.

Wow, after reading that sentence I just became really depressed about our RB situation. Thank God it doesn't really matter, given Aaron Rodgers and all.

are there any RBs out there where we can trade on the cheap like we did with Grant?

A year ago I would agree with you, but now it just seems that Starks is allergic to holding onto the football, running or receiving.

Man, if this goes through, I really like the signing. It'd be nice to have something more reliable back there. He could be a great closer for us in the 4th quarter.

Hey palmy, after the past couple of years and all that's gone down (or the lack thereof) with our running game, you still get heartburn over the Packers passing on Marshawn Lynch? Very Happy


I just don't think most fans truly understand how close the Packers truly were to landing Lynch. On the 11th hour, Lynch was a Packer!

Its just 1 preseason game.

He's apparently been having a poor training camp too.

IMO he had a very good divisional game and if we woulda have him in the whole game and Grant inactive we would have have a better chance to win. He also seems like he's a real good cold weather runner.

Training camp, as well as, loss against the Giants. I know everyone had the dropsies that game, but his sticks out in my mind because he seems to be James Jones Jr.

I do agree with you about Grant 100%. One reason I am glad about the Benson signing. We know what Grant was in this offense. I want to see if Benson brings anything new. This will also be good competition for Starks, and hopefully he wakes up. I loved him during his first season.

I like the signing But it seems like a stop gap One or two year average signing


But would love TT to go after Jonathan Stewart From Carolina I know he is in his last year of contract

But could you imagine this offense with him

I know it would take 2-3 round pick and alot of money to resign and we have two many now. And he fits this system
