Green Bay Packers: James Starks Holds the Key to Packer Victory
The Green Bay Packers are around three point favorites right now in Super Bowl XLV, and much of the talk has centered around the spectacular postseason of quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
But I believe the key to the Packers emerging victorious will be the man who lines up behind Rodgers in the backfield: tailback James Starks. Starks will be tasked with the difficult job of finding running room against a stingy Steeler defense that was the top ranked defense in the league against the running game, and held the Jets to just 70 yards on the ground in the AFC title game.
If Rodgers is going to be able to find any openings to get the passing attack going, establishing the run will be key. Otherwise, Pittsburgh will just set up with eight players in pass coverage and dare Green Bay to beat them on the ground all game.
He's been a tremendous success story this postseason, emerging out of nowhere after playing just three games in the regular season to shoulder the bulk of the running load in the playoffs. But this will be by far his biggest test.
