Packers vs. Bills: Saturday Scoop

The Green Bay Packers get set to hit the road this weekend for the first of two straight games away from the comforts of Lambeau Field.  First up?  The Buffalo Bills in western New York.  The Packers have never won there.  Ever.  History may have nothing to do with this current Packers team, but to me, it counts for something.  Buffalo is hardly any type of juggernaut this...

ALLGBP Casualty Report: Week 15 at Buffalo Bills

New Injuries Eddie Lacy: Lacy suffered a bruised hip in the 4th quarter of the Falcons game and surprisingly the Packers coaching staff decided to shut Lacy down as a precaution and let backup running back James Starks close out the game; considering how quickly the Falcons were scoring in the 2nd half and the inability of the defense to really stop the pass, putting your faith in...

Packers Therapy #246: Dirty Birds Sauteed in Green and Gold Sauce

It’s probably no surprise that the mysterious second half disappearance of the Packers defense dominated the conversation on this week’s installment of the podcast.

James Starks Has Solid Fantasy Day vs. Falcons

Packers running back James Starks ran for 75 yards and a touchdown on just 10 carries and combined for 101 yards from scrimmage.Fantasy Spin:Starks saw almost as much work as starter Eddie Lacy and posted excellent fantasy numbers for a backup. It was his best game of the season, but there is no guarantee that this level of work and production will continue.

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks Had Plenty of Reason to Celebrate Monday Night

The life of the back-up running back can be a little frustrating--just ask Green Bay Packers running back James Starks. Unlike the No. 1 guy he doesn't always get a chance to work his way in to the game. He is just expected to hop right in and perform; something that is often easier said than done.So when Starks got a few carries Monday night against the Falcons he made sure he did...

Quest for the 6-10 Division Winner Still Alive

You'd probably think this was a hard fought game if you glanced at the score. And you'd be partly right, say 19% of the game was hard fought? 18%? With the Packers leading at the half 31-7, Monday Night Football fulfilled, certainly, my expectations, and it looked like we were all set to enjoy some Matt Flynn time. DENIED. Why? Because Dom Capers, that's why. The Falcons went on...

Cory’s Corner: Packers were smart to pass on Steven Jackson

Remember when Packers fans were demanding that Ted Thompson go out and sign free agent running back Steven Jackson? Well, that was way back in the spring of 2013. At the time, it didn’t look like a terrible proposition. Jackson, who was 29 at the time, had just finished getting his eighth straight 1,000-yard season. And the Packers just got done handing it off to Cedric Benson...

High Draft Picks Failing to Make Impact in Green Bay

Week 8: Packers vs. Saints Preview and Prediction

The 5-2 Green Bay Packers travel to N'awlins Sunday evening to take on the 2-4 Saints. Despite the records, the Saints are currently two-point favorites given that their two wins are at home this season, and generally the Saints do win at home. It's a tough place for opponents. Even for a team as hot as the Packers, who thoroughly demolished the Carolina Panthers last weekend at...

James Starks and Eddie Lacy each produce in rout of Panthers (Sunday NFL Review)

James Starks and Lacy each scored first quarter touchdowns against Carolina, as part of productive days overall. Lacy has been losing snaps to Starks all season, and whether it comes as a result of production or a view toward keeping the sophomore back fresh for 16+ games, it doesn’t appear to be going away. Nevertheless, both were productive, netting 13.3 and 10.3 standard league...

Packers To Split Eddie Lacy and James Starks 50/50

The Green Bay Packers are planning to use a 50/50 split between their running backs Eddie Lacy and James Starks. It appears to be a move to keep both backs healthy and fresh. Starks did not see a carry in week 4, but he played 29 snaps last week, while Lacy played 28. It's hard to tell if that's the Packers using a 50/50 split or the fact that the Packers were blowing out the Vikings...
