they got 60 yards rushing on one drive (that drive with Grant) and only like 140 total for the game. They hardly looked good running the ball (again, besides that ONE drive).
Have you ever watched the Packers before? That's a big step up for their running game. BIG step up. Especially considering Starks running in for a TD last week only marked their 3rd rushing TD of the season. So yeah.. They're looking better and hopefully they can keep working on their running game.

I didn't say they didn't look better...but you said they looked good. They didn't.

The Packers have a running game like the Lions...and by that I mean no running game. The Lions are pass, pass, pass, meeehhhh let's run once, pass, pass, pass...

alright so who is the "smartest" NFL guy in the GL?

I'd like that person to do my picks for next week since I'm pretty bad at it.

it's an office weekly pick'em type thing via cbssports.com.

I generally just guess since I know so little about football and football players.

I used to be aces at pick'em before I tried my hand at spread picks.. I'm terrible at those.

If it's straight picks, I'm your guy.

spreads utilized? If so it looks like I will be requesting some help from you next week (this Thursday). lol

I'm in 4th place in a pool of 10. So I'm pretty much out of it in the cumulative pool I think. But the week to week I can still make some nice money.

My pickem is straight points which is easier. And yeah... York was some nobody that somehow joined our group when it was open and not private. What's funny is he convo between our "Commissioner" and York....

Quote :
Commissioner: York, who are you? Everyone around the office was trying to figure out who your username belonged to.
Quote :
York: Your mom!!!
LMAO BANNINATED!

actually with football I think gut calls are fine. Just not in baseball when I have sabermetrics.

Speaking of sabres.. did you think Trout should have gotten the nod over Miggy this year?

Ugh, I know. I just think it's incredibly stupid to hinge an MVP winner on an individual, statistics-based achievement, no matter how notable it was.

Miggy didn't even have his best year; it just happened to fall into place that his totals bested those of his competition. Those numbers would not have stood up except for once in the past 40 years.

Anyway, we can debate this for literally years. I felt that what Trout gave on defense and on the basepaths outweighed Miggy's slight advantages in power and games played.
