  1. I’ve been getting beat up on other sites defending Starks.The Niners are a tough defense and dangerous at creating turnovers.Benson is more experienced but has a much higher risk rate of fumbling.

    • I’m glad to hear you’re defending Starks. I really think he can be a very good back. I don’t think he’ll ever be outstanding (of course the Packers don’t need outstanding, just someone who can get the job done). In all honesty, I’m not even worried about the fumbling as much. Grant was a fumbler when we picked him up. Ahman Green was a fumbler. Those guys did fine.

      The biggest thing that concerns me about Starks is he’s got to stay healthy. I feel bad for him that injury has been keeping him from gaining any momentum.

      I’m looking forward to seeing Benson hit the field in a Packers uniform though.
