Green Bay --- After a win, this was the absolute last thing T.J. Lang wanted to hear. The Packers left guard knew Eddie Lacy was close to 100 yards.
But informed that the rookie running back had gained 99 yards, Lang cringed and ducked his head down in disgust.

“Ninety-nine?! Son of a...," said Lang, dropping a few choice words. "It was close. I didn’t know."



getting a running game will certainly help as the season wears on.

The more these guys start with another the better the ground game should get. It'd be nice to see nothing but 16s for this group at the end of the season.

The stats may not say it but we've really had 3 different runners on our team go over 100 yards. Great job Packers! We can win with this kind of production out of the run game!

Several times during this game I was reacquainted with a feeling I haven't had with a Packers RB since Ahman Green. Lacy looked so close to busting a huge gain on several occasions. With Green I got that impression a lot, with Lacy it's only a matter of time.

Side note, If McCarthy knew Lacy was 1 yard shy of 100 do you think he would have given him the ball rather than have Rodgers take a knee? I think he would have. I was kind of hoping he would after the Lions called the timeout after the knee but I understand why he punted.

For the first time since Ahman Green in his prime, I asked myself the question of "Why are the Packers passing here?"

It happened some in the Bengals game where Rodgers seemed to be off and the running game was looking good. But I asked it a couple times in this game with 3rd and shorts they come up with a delayed pass play... and asked why did they just run it?


Of course the answer very well could be the front the defense was showing. I noticed the Lions seem to run a good bit of the "wide 9" which spreads out the DL making it easier for them to get one on one match-ups in the passing game and better angles to pass rush. But spreading them out like that makes it harder for them to defend the run and fill running lanes, though they have Suh and Fairly which are pretty good DTs so putting pressure on their very good DTs to step up and make plays to free up their DEs some more. And Packers were willing and able to run on them like that.

All I can say, is it is very encouraging to know we have a really good running game, from a talent standpoint. Our OL looks to be playing well together to create lanes, and our RBs look very solid. Now, if only we can get our HC to trust that running the football and winning is sexy...

Had Boykin not held, Lacy would have broken 100 yards.

The Packers used the Lions aggressiveness against them. It was a good game plan.

no Mike does nothing to try and get personal accolades for players and he does nothing to that would rile up the other team generally speaking.

I disagree. First of all a run would not have riled up the the other team. It actually would have made more sense than taking the knee. If Lacy gains that yard we do not have to punt and Rodgers takes a knee on the next play.

Second, I think Mike McCarthy may have given Lacy the ball had he known he was only a yard short. McCarthy is big on having team support. You saw how bummed Lang was when he found out Lacy was a yard short. Had he gotten that yard the entire offense would have benefited. The OL knows what has been said about them not being able to run block. I know its only a yard but its a benchmark. 3 different 100 yard rushers in three weeks would have gone a long way to building up their confidence.

It's not like he would have been passing for a TD with 1 minute to go when you are up by 3 TDs already. That is out of Mike McCarthy character. Letting a RB have a chance at 100 yards by calling a play that 9 out of 10 coaches would have called anyway would make perfect sense and I think Mike McCarthy would have obliged.

Mike and Aaron are big on statistics.

Mike is all about the win period. If they lined up to run for 1 yard how would the Lions know that was their goal? Dirty Suh could have gone in and cut someone at the knees and ended up with a serious knee injury. With Aaron taking a knee that kept the Lions from hitting hard.

uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.

Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : Tolzien being evaluated for concussion. What?
