Default Insider: Kuhn good for the hard yard

Insider: Kuhn good for the hard yard
November 21, 2008

A quick glance at John Kuhn's season rushing statistics reveals nothing special. He has carried four times for 9 yards with a long gain of 3 yards.

Here's what the stats don't say: Kuhn has become a valuable commodity when the Green Bay Packers are facing third-and-1. All four of Kuhn's carries have come on that down and distance, and the little-known fullback has converted all of them.

In Sunday's win against the Bears, he doubled his season total for carries by getting the ball twice. On the Packers' second series, they faced third-and-1 at the Bears' 48-yard line. Out of their two-back, two-tight end formation, Kuhn got the ball on a fullback dive and picked up 3 yards. Four plays later, Aaron Rodgers threw a touchdown pass to Greg Jennings for the game's first score. Then in the third quarter, on third-and-1 from the Bears' 24, the Packers used their full-house backfield (with fullback Korey Hall and tight end Tory Humphrey in front and Kuhn as the lone back behind them), and Kuhn got the yard they needed. Four plays later, Rodgers threw a touchdown pass to Donald Lee.

Kuhn's other carries came against Indianapolis on Oct. 19 (when he gained 3 yards on third-and-1) and at Tennessee on Nov. 2 (when he gained 2 yards on third-and-1). The third-year pro is one of nine NFL players with a perfect conversion rate on third-and-1 rushing plays. Only four of the nine players have more third-and-1 attempts than Kuhn.

All joking aside, Kuhn has been really valuable to green bay this season. I've watched most of their games and he excels in those short opportunities he is given, kinda like Russell's doing now for the steelers

I believe they use korey hall more as their regular FB, but kuhn goes in occasionally and in those important 3rd and shorts

I would expect nothing less from a future HoFer.
