Jason Wilde is currently running through a different position group every day over at ESPNMilwaukee.com and today he's focused on the running back position. He has a great take overall, but I wanted to point out something toward the end of his breakdown:
...adding a young, dynamic back wouldn’t be the worst thing for Thompson to do this offseason, although there are more pressing needs. At the very least, it would be interesting to add a Leon Washington-type change-of-pace back or an athlete who could bring the Wildcat wrinkle to the offense.
This echos something Greg Bedard was on about last offseason - the need for a breakaway threat on the offensive side of the ball. Yes Jennings and Finley are superior players at their positions. But neither of them are the lightning-in-a-bottle type that causes fits for defensive coordinators. As explosive as the Packers' offense can be, that type of player would make McCarthy's offense even more difficult to defend.
