    I do not see Morency doing it alone.
    I think they will bring in someone with experience.

    Can Morency:
    Get tough yards (short yardage situations) - Don't think so.
    Pick up blitzes (3rd down back) - Maybe, but not so far
    Natural pass catcher - not so far.

    His size is also in question as to being the #1 RB - 5'10" 212 pounds

    YEah, they think the world of Morency here in cheesedick land for some stupid reason. If he is their starter (I hope so) he won't make it through the season.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    WHY does everyone think that 5'10" and 212 is SMALL for an RB?
    Hello, Barry Sanders, Walter Payton and Emmitt Smith were all that size or SMALLER!!!

    Not defending the Packers or Morency...BUT his size will not be the determining factor..it will be the fact that he just SUCKS as an RB!!!
    ;D
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Yeah, but Kimbo could beat him up, according to the ballboy he's someone's cousin on the site.

    Three valid points.


    However, you can't compare Sanders, Payton, and Smith to your "average" NFL Backs.
