Nick Lahman/Getty Images I am probably the driver of the “Green Bay Packers don’t need a running back” bandwagon.  So it may be funny that I took the time to talk with Brandon Saine this week at training camp.  The fact is the Packers will always have running backs, it’s just part of football. So why Saine?  I like his story.  It fits in line with numerous Packers on this roster; undrafted free agent, practice squad time and take advantage of your chances.   Saine has done that.  Once he got the call last year, he instantly found himself on the field with a chance to contribute.  This year will be the same.  With James Starks always banged up and Alex Green coming off a serious knee injury, Saine could be in for extended time in this, his 2nd NFL season. Here is my conversation with Saine from Wednesday… Question:  ”Last year you came in and you’re in the Green Mile (extra locker room)as an undrafted free agent and were able to stick around.  This year, you’re in the big locker room

Packers still have some questions up front

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Don't try to tell Green Bay Packers offensive line coach James Campen that his starting five basically was determined before training camp started.

Going Deep: Randall Cobb

This ain’t Dancing With The Stars Juan… 2011 Recap:  Cobb started the season with a bang as he took back a kickoff for 108 yards and scored on a 32 yard TD.  It was his best work of the season though.  He was buried on the depth chart and never assumed a regular role in the offense as he finished with only 24/369/1 on only 30 targets.  The good news is he had an exceptional...
