In a pass first offense - not likely. I hope this isn't a challenge within the team to set silly records. I don't care if we get our yards on the ground or through the air - as long as the chains keep moving. Reaching new individual achievements - great, but championships are even better.

I like knowing that we have three quality RBs and I hope they all see the field to keep the trio fresh and healthy.

I don't think it is a challenge or any sort of indication that the offensive strategy will change at all. All it was was a comment indicating that whoever said it (I'm not even sure who did, all headlines I saw simply said coaches) thinks Lacy has the talent and the ability, if he were to be given the chance, to lead the league in rushing. I happen to agree with him. I also happen to think that probably any one of 15 or 20 RBs could lead the league in rushing if their team was hell bent on making it happen. In a lot of ways leading the league is as much a team decision and a team accomplishment as an individual one. Guys like Peterson or Charles or McCoy probably wouldn't have as many yards if they had had the Packers passing game. I mean just look at the vikings and the Chiefs passing game over the careers of Peterson and Charles. If you said "what passing game" you get a cookie, it is in the mail. Philadelphia may have been a bit more suited to throwing the ball but even they had their limitations (their QB couldn't pass even though he thought he could) .

If you have a RB like Lacy, and to a lesser extent Harris and Starks and you don't use them it would be flat out stupid. It only makes your entire offense better. However, this was, is and always will be Aaron Rodgers' team and he will lead the team in stats. Some people might mistakenly call this stat whoring but what do they know. Stat whoring is leaving your QB in to throw his 5th TD pass when you are up by 35 points with 4 minutes left to go in the game. It is not going deep down field on a third and 1 from your own 35 midway through the first quarter when the score is tied at 7 all. While this may be frustrating at times it is not stat whoring, it is called a game plan I wonder if the Packers decided to give Lacy the ball 30 times a game and he gained 1800 yards would some people be saying that he was stat whoring? Probably, there is no pleasing some people. Anyway, using Lacy more doesn't mean the Packers are turning into a run first team. Heck, even if they run more than they pass I wouldn't call them a run first team because this team will live and die by Rodgers and the pass. Lacy may get 1200-1300 yards and 10-12 TDs but people will always look at what Rodgers did first and teams will always fear Rodgers more. Of course the improved running game will be a big part of that fear.

Just having that option, of a supurb RB, takes a load of pressure off of the passing game. Defenses can't just pin their ears back and rush the passer.
I'm so looking forward to the REAL games!

Operation Red Herring is in effect.

Phase 1. Hype the running game. Make the Seahawks think we are setting rushing goals.

Phase 2. Run the crap out of the ball with the first string O. in preseason. Don't bother throwing it. Just run it 6 or 8 times and get a TD. Make sure the nation sees the Packers as a RUN FIRST team.

Phase 3. Show up at the Seahawks and play action them to death.

When they figure it out, and pull the safeties back into coverage, drop the Hulk on them.

Here comes the boom.
