"Put BJ in Coach, He's Ready To Play - clap, clap-clap - Today..."

Hey, Mike. Can I please see a little bit more of Brandon Jackson? Pretty please? I'm not saying we have a young Curtis Martin on our hands or anything, but check out the numbers. 2008 stats:

44 carries, 242 yards, 5.5 ypc. A small sample set, yes. If we include the last game of 2007 (stats do count against the Lions, right?) they are:

64 carries, 355 yards, 5.5 ypc.

And I'm not talking about those shotgun-draw plays on 3rd and 7. Why not leave him in for an entire series here and there? It's not that I'm as down on Ryan Grant as everybody else is either. Despite battling an early hammy issue, he's gonna end up with about 1,200 yards and a 4.0 average. He gets ripped for his contract, but I heard he's the 18th highest paid RB. 1,200 yards and a 4.0 average is about what you'd expect for the 18 highest paid RB, no?

I say give Jackson some more carries. Maybe a 60-40 Grant-Jackson split and see what happens. At this pint, why not?

Ryan Grant should never ever touch the ball when the Packers need 1 yard.

John Kuhn should never ever touch the ball when the Packers need 1 yard.

Still, good day for the Packers draft position. Jets win to pretty much lock up a playoff spot to give the Packers their 2nd rounder, and the Packers lose to stay firmly in the top 10 picks.
