Packers Podcast: Potentially the Best Backfield Since the Lombardi Era

Note the key word "potentially," but yes, with the running backs the Green Bay Packers selected this past weekend in the NFL Draft, the potential is there for Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin to be the best running back tandem in Titletown since Jim Taylor and Paul Hornung. I joined Bart Winkler of K107 in Fond du Lac on Monday morning to talk about the Packers new running backs and recap the rest of the NFL Draft.

I believe, we've seen the last game of John Kuhn in a packers uniform.

It'll be interesting to see, that's for sure. My initial reaction is that he will be a Packer on account of his pass blocking prowess and the potential of a Lacy/Kuhn power package, but on the other hand he does have a relatively sizable contract.

he is a gamer... contracts can be renegotiated, though.

My thinking also, but then again who knows.

I hope you're right, but don't forget about Barty Smith and Eric Torkelson. I can still almost feel the fear they instilled in opposing D's.

jim's picture

and...dont forget about dorsey levens...he was a horse

doug's picture

how about John Brockington and McArthur Lane? dudes were pretty good together!

dawg's picture

Brockington and Lane, yes, sweet for to short!
Lacy, Franklin, winner winner chicken dinner!

Harlem Hucklebee didnt need a running mate, he was a one man wrecking ball

I'm excited about these RB picks, but let's see if these guys can match Levins/Bennett, let alone Brockington/Lane, before we break out the Taylor Hornung analogies. ;)

Too bad Lacy and Franklin aren't likely tobe on the field at the same time the majority of thr time.

Harlem "Shake" Hucklebee.

But wasn't it "Harlan"?

Terdell "the Turd" Middleton went over 1,000 yards in 1978. 1,178, I think it was.

Ahman Green and more Ahman Green was a good combo.

Point Packer's picture

Ahman Green and then more Ahman Green usually lead to another Ahman Green fumble.

Just saying.

Stroh's picture

His fumble % was in line w a lot of the better RB. Kinda an overblown issue.

The TKstinator's picture

Nate Simpson's brother OJ couldn't hold a candle to him.

Paul Ott Carruth was related to the great Mel Ott.
