There is this, too, from pro football weekly:

This could be the week Packers RB Ryan Grant really busts loose. Grant, who had a decent outing against the Falcons last Sunday (18 carries for 83 yards), faces a Seattle defense that he carved up for 201 yards rushing and three scores in the divisional playoffs last season. Seattle gave up 254 yards on the ground last week to the Giants.

Yes Seattle got shredded last week. But they always play like crap during 1pm games on the East. Buffalo killed them and so did the Giants. They just play better at home. Grant ran all over them last year but A. that was last year and B. that was in GB.

Seattle plays much better at home. They just do.

Aside from the Giants game, the main RBs have been averaging less than 3.5yc against them.

I have Grant in one of my leagues and im debating whether to play him or buckhalter this week.

He failed to meet so many expectations this season so far.

A guy in one of my leagues dropped Chad Johnson, Marc Bulger, and Matt Hasselbeck all after Week 1 and the league was outraged.

I think we was stupid to drop them when we could have got some trade value, but it is hard to argue that he foresaw their lack of production.

Now he just dropped Grant. The guy could be a genius. We'll see. I grabbed Grant off the waiver wire.

Dropping Bulger and Hass was fine.....not sure about Chad....but he shouldn't have dropped Grant IMO.

Seattle looks like one of the worst teams in the NFL this season.

I think Ryan Grant is a top5 RB today. MARK IT DOWN AND BOOK IT!

I think so, too. But I can't bench Gore, even against Philly, or MJD breaking out against Denver.

If I were a Grant owner that sneaking BS would annoy the crap out of me. 3 times now Rodgers has sneaked it in.
