    The Packers are looking to get running back Ryan Grant to break more tackles. It's been a point of emphasis throughout this offseason. Packers coaches have aimed to make their No. 1 running back more elusive and more resilient at the point of contact, with hopes of reviving the big-play ability Grant so rarely displayed last season. "There's no other way to put it," Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin said recently. "We try to not run the ball where they've got extra guys that are just sitting there, and there's some excellent defensive coaches. But at some point in time, you've got to make some guys miss. You've got to run through some arm tackles. And I'm not saying we didn't do that at all -- we did, but we've got to do that more. We've got to do a better job at the second level."

    I think if we add Brandon Jackson to the mix with Ryan, he'll be able to be more productive. Jackson is more of an agile back and Grant is more of a power back. If we can find the right ways to use these guys, both of their numbers will go up

    That and if they can keep the O-line healthy.
