Packers: Eddie Lacy, James Starks Give Green Bay Dominant 1-2 Punch at RB

For a long time under head coach Mike McCarthy, the Green Bay Packers’ offense was all about the passing game. Sure, McCarthy said the right things about running the ball and maintained that it was a focus but it wasn’t and it was starting to become a problem. Routinely, the Packers running game would falter when it was needed most. Packer fans surely remembers the many times...

Cory’s Corner: A healthy DuJuan Harris is a perfect No. 2

DuJuan Harris rushed for 157 yards in four games in 2012. He missed all of last season with a knee injury. The news about Johnathan Franklin was stunning and devastating.

The Packers are as Deep as They Have Ever Been at Running Back

What a difference a year makes.  At the end of the 2012 season, there were a lot of questions surrounding the Packers’ backfield.
