Just when you thought Aaron Rodgers couldn’t get any better, he puts on a performance like he did Sunday that just blows your mind. Two rushing touchdowns. Four TD passes. More than 400 yards passing and, yes, one interception but that was more bad luck on his part than a bad decision. In short, [...]
I’m not suggesting Green Bay Packers running back James Starks is going to turn into the Houston Texans Arian Foster next season, but this is a comparison of two opposites.

Green Bay Packers rookie running back James Starks is getting a bit of attention after running for 123 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in the wild card round.

In a somewhat surprising move, the Green Bay Packers have activated running back James Starks from the physically unable to perform list. Starks, who the Packers chose in the sixth round of this year’s draft, was in the same boat as Atari Bigby and Al Harris. The Packers had to activate him, cut him or [...]
The Green Bay Packers will get cornerback Al Harris, safety Atari Bigby and running back James Starks back this week. All three players have been on the physically unable to perform list since the beginning of the season and this week is the first they are eligible to return to practice.

The Green Bay Packers reached the mandated 75-man roster limit on Tuesday by placing three players on the physically unable to perform list and one on injured reserve.
