Packers happy with Jackson, Kuhn in running game

One of the biggest areas of concern for Green Bay through three games this season is their lack of productivity at running back, as Brandon Jackson and John Kuhn clearly have not been able to provide the same level of play as injured running back Ryan Grant.

The Packers apparently do not share in that sentiment, as head coach Mike McCarthy indicated the team believes Jackson and Kuhn are effective enough to allow Green Bay to achieve their goals this season, during his press conference earlier today.

Jackson and Kuhn have combined to rush for 186 yards on 53 carries and two touchdowns in Grant’s absence, leading many around the league to speculate that the Packers would be interested in acquiring a talented rusher prior to the trade deadline on October 19th.

One player that may end up catching their eye is Bills running back Marshawn Lynch, who appears to have finally convinced the powers that be in Buffalo to listen to offers for his services, and will likely find his way out to a new home sooner rather than later.

For the time being, the Packers seem to be fine with throwing the ball all over the field with superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers and supplementing those plays with the occasional run to keep defenses honest. That said, if a deal presents itself for Lynch or someone else of his talent level, there’s little doubt that Green Bay will do what it can to make it happen in a hurry.

    Why do they need to get Lynch? Kuhn has been running the ball well in his limited touches, they need to make him the primary running back. He's a Peyton Hillis type power back who runs over defenders but has surprising speed and agility for his size too!
