All Green Bay Packers fans have been talking about the need for a change at running back since week 2. The week after Ryan Grant was injured, the week Brandon Jackson took over the #1 RB position and the same week we became thoroughly underwhelmed with his abilities.
We wanted it to work, we tried to be fair, we’ve been biting our tongues for the last 10 weeks…but the lack of his running prowess has exhausted our patience.
