1) Ahman wasn't 30 when he had the surgery.
2) He didn't turn 30 till 4 months ago. More than a full year after the surgery.
3) While not great last season. He had over 1000 yards rushing and 300 yards receiving.
Yeah I would really rather have a fat RB that did nothing last season, LW or a injury prone RB that did nothing last season, CB or a RB that didn't even do anything in college, CH. Man you are right Ahman is garbage compaired to that.

2006 Off-Season Injury Report - Running Backs

Ahman Green, GB
Surgery To Repair Torn Quadriceps
Huddle Up: Packers’ RB Ahman Green, who is already ahead of schedule in his rehab back from a torn quadriceps tendon, is expected to be at full speed in time for the start of the regular season. Green missed the remainder of the 2005 season after tearing his quadriceps in October and he’s undergone 3 – 4 hours of treatment and rehab daily since team physicians surgically repaired the injury. According to reports the Packers didn’t think he would be able to practice until sometime in August but he was given clearance to work with the team during mini camp in May. Green did not take part in any contact drills and he was running at half speed but he did take handoffs and made cuts and according to reports the medical staff was pleased with his performance. He’s been straight-line running and lifting weights since March 20 but nobody, not even Green himself, thought he would be back on the field and cutting before the start of training camp so this is a very good sign that things are going well. Team officials now expect him to be more involved in June OTA’s and he should be closer to full strength when training camp begins.
