Grant and the O-Line Come Up with a Historic Effort

Grant

Not enough can  be said about the outing Saturday in the snow at Lambeau about gritty Packers running back Ryan Grant.  I will be the first to admit that I had my doubts about Grant after he put the ball on the ground in the first five minutes of the game, but he rebounded to have one of the biggest, if not the biggest game in Packers postseason history.  27 rushes for 201 yards and three touchdowns.  It’s the type of outing that you save for the biggest game of your life, and on Saturday against a Seahawks defense that did a good job against the Redskins run game last week, Grant proved his worth.

You also have to credit the Packers offensive line, as they hung tough and did a great job at the point of attack at the line of scrimmage, as well as against the Seahawks solid linebacker core, which after the first few minutes was not heard from for the rest of the afternoon.  You knew after it was 14-0 Seattle that the Pack was going to be in for a dogfight, and it was, as the O-line and Grant did a great job in coming back, and then the rest of the day wearing down the Hawks to the point where you knew they did not want to be on the field and were toast by the time Grant left the game in the fourth quarter.

Running the football was any success was the Packers problem early in the year.  Saturday they proved that as long as Grant and the O-line does anywhere near what they were able to do against Seattle, the Pack is going to be very tough next weekend vs either the Cowboys or the Giants.  Grant could be the missing piece of the puzzle.  He has been the last half of the season, and just may be all the way to Arizona and the Super Bowl.
