This isn't a hugely important player loss, but it is a sad one. While Eddie Lacy is on the precipice of stardom, the other running back Green Bay drafted last year, Johnathan Franklin, will probably never play again due to a neck injury sustained during a kickoff last year in Week 12. The Packers will be giving him a waived/injured designation, and in a tweet today Franklin indicated that he needs to move to the next phase of his life. I hope he invested his rookie salary well.

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
