Bulls in the Pro's James Starks and Josh Thomas are playoff bound

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

In a game which meant everything to Green Bay's season James Starks stepped up big and helped lift the Packers over the Chicago Bears for the NFC north title and a home date with San Fransico!

Rodgers hit James Jones on third and four to move the chains on a back-shoulder throw before James Starks ran a nice cutback for nine yards on first down and another three on second and one. What happened next I can't even describe, so I'll just leave this here:

The cutback was a beautiful 41 yard yard carry which accounted for nearly half of his 88 yards on the day. Still even without the long run Starks ran the ball 10 times for 47 yards. The performance Starks and Lacy put in helped Aaron Rodgers shake off the rust early in the game and have a second half which put the Pack back in the post season.

Meanwhile

Josh Thomas appears to still be in the dog house in Carolina, along with several other defensive backs. Thomas has seen a big cut in playing time since getting beaten twice deep against Tampa Bay earlier this year but he and the Panthers are playoff bound.
