What good is this guy? I have tried to be patient with him and give him time to develop but I'm done waiting on this guy to do something to earn his paycheck. He's not fast. He sucks at running the ball and catching the ball. He drops passes just as much as Turner and that's suppose to be his strength?

You obviously aren't watching the same player I am.

Coming into today he had 79 yards rushing on 29 carries for an average of 2.7.
Last season he had 205 yards rushing on 57 carriers for an average of 3.6.
Coming into today he had 96 yards receiving on 12 catches for an average of 8.0.
Last season he had 188 yards receiving on 21 catches for an average of 9.0.
He has a lot of drops.
Aside from kick returner he's been pretty useless.

I'd like to see a little Antone Smith just to see what he can do in a real game.

Me too. But he's been hurt the last few games.

Hes a fifth round pick. A fifth round pick who is also top 10 in kick returns is far from useless.

Kick return? Oh wow. Kick returners are so valuable since the NFL is trying to get rid of kickoffs.
He is completely useless on offense and taking snaps away from Jason Snelling who's a proven playmaker. Snelling gets only 2 or 3 touches a game now.

He had that goal line touch and did nothing with it. All our backs are looking mediocre right now. I'd say don't be too quick to throw the kid under the bus. He is a better footballer than he's showing. All those backs are but collectively they are struggling

But even in the games where Turner has run good in Rodgers hasn't done anything in. Look at the Chargers game. Turner had 14 rushes for 80 yards (5.7). Rodgers had 10 rushes for 32 yards (3.2).
Look at the Panthers game. Turner had 13 rushes for 103 yards (7.9). Rodgers had 6 carries for 18 yards (3.0).

Plus Quizz is doing a nice job of picking up Blitzes. And I'm sorry if you're looking at our backfield and complaining about Quizz I'd like to know what you're seeing from Turner?
I mean sometimes its the blocking granted, but to me I see a lot more of Turner getting stonewalled than I care too.
