If it seems like we have troubles running the ball when it matters, perhaps it is because we actually DO have troubles running the ball when it matters

Our RB is great. Our Offensive line and our plan is garbage.

Is this all 3rd down plays or just rushing plays on 3rd down? Because if it's the former, Rodgers would like to remind you of how good he is at holding on to the ball too long and getting sacked on 3rd down. He even added fumbling to the mix against the 49ers.

I had the same question, after trying to look it up, seems like it's success on 3rd down run plays according to sharpfootballstats.com  which suggest the Packers run the ball on 3rd down only 17 percentage of the time which is 6th worse... and when they do, only get it about 29% of the time, which is 3rd worse in the NFL.

This potential also could mean, failure on the first 2 downs setting up for a longer 3rd down potentially too

As that would lead to higher passing percentage (which we got) and higher failure percentage too (which we got). The Packers on pass plays on 3rd down is only very slightly above average in success rate.

Of course if you look at all downs and not just 3rd, Packers supposively have the 7th most successful run plays, however this stat is messured

Jones is good and very quick, not sure he's great through...

gbguy20 (27-Jan) : it's being called mountains but you're right its more like hills by my definition
Zero2Cool (27-Jan) : The crash site looks like it's without mountains. Sure hope it was instant though.

Nonstopdrivel (26-Jan) : Helicopters don't glide like planes -- they plummet like rocks -- so it's possible it was all over before anyone but the pilot realized what was about to happen.
Zero2Cool (26-Jan) : @brianstelter Sheriff says 9 people, not 5, died in today's helicopter crash in Calabasas. The helicopter belonged to Kobe Bryant.
Zero2Cool (26-Jan) : And you are essentially helpless. It might have been a second, two minutes, either way, it's a pain that is unimaginable for me.
Zero2Cool (26-Jan) : As a father, I can't imagine the feeling of knowing you and your daughter are about to die.
Nonstopdrivel (26-Jan) : Kind of a jarring note in the middle of an article.
Nonstopdrivel (26-Jan) : "The Times is offering coverage of Kobe Bryant’s death for free today. Please consider a subscription to support our journalism."
gbguy20 (26-Jan) : my favorite nba player ever. even better guy. this is horrible.
Zero2Cool (26-Jan) : @wojespn Sources: Kobe Bryant was on his way to a travel basketball game with his daughter Gianna when the helicopter crashed. Those aboard the helicopter also included another player and parent.
Zero2Cool (26-Jan) : Kobe Bryant has died.
Zero2Cool (26-Jan) : btw, my comment was not inferring Rodgers was accurate this year, he wasn't, just stating the raw stat is misleading

Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : @zachkruse2 Brian Gutekunst said the Packers have to "take a long look at inside linebacker" this offseason
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : @TomSilverstein Gutekunst said he's from the Ron Wolf school of player acquisition and that means if there's a quarterback they like and think can be a starter in the league, they won't hesitate to ob
