i dont think lacy will lead the league in yardage, he is a great runner but the problem is a guy named aaron, the pack are a passing team 1st, teams that cant throw are more apted to run, thats not the pack, ill be happy with lacy around 1300 and aaron over 4000 !!

Did you watch the game from last Thursday?

1st drive, 7 plays 80+ yards, 3:06, 1 pass - 6 runs.

I guess Lacy should have laid down a couple of times instead of rolling over the defense so The Packers could take more time off the clock.

Or maybe Rodgers(the tight end), should have just caught the ball on the one pass attempt and just fell down after he got the 1st down yardage.

BTW short pass over the middle he broke for 32 yds.

Another year of this stat-whoring bullshit, I guess it never gets old for some.


lol well you're in the minority.

Everyone else says the Packers will pass more than they run. I guess we'll see starting next Thursday!

So if Lacy carries the ball 25 times for say 125yds, and Aaron is say 25-30 for 300 yds, you are going to be pissed because They ran 5 more pass plays than run plays?

Is that Stat-whoring?

BTW That is only 55 plays.

The goal is 75 plays a game, I don't give a damn what the ratio is, if they hit their target, there's a damn good chance The Packers are going to win the game.

For the 1st time since Ryan Grant was in his prime The Packers have viable options at QB, WR, and RB.

I'm gonna enjoy watching this team, not worry about the pass/rush ratio.

my friend, sports writer and editor of a city newspaper says, "Did he ever even lead the SEC?" Nope, I don't think so. But definitely stay focused on what he did or didn't do years ago, i'm gonna watch him tear it up!

When are you ever going to realize that people just like to press your buttons? Yeah, it's cruel but as long as you allow it, people will keep doing it. I'll try very hard not to anymore, and I'm sorry for doing it in the past.

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.

uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
