6/17KFFL.com Hot off the Wire: Packers | James Starks believes this will be his big season: Green Bay Packers RB James Starks is convinced he is ready to break out this season. 'I believe I can and I believe I will,' Starks...[+] said. Starks has a long history of injury problems, so counting on him for an entire 16-game season may be too optimistic.

None of the team's backs - Starks, Alex Green and Brandon Saine - have proven they can handle a heavy workload, but if the team's pass-first offense continues to click they can get by with the group they have.
