With Aaron Rodgers, we can outscore anybody. We have to get over this crap of wasting downs by running consistently on early downs. If we pass first, and then run occasionally to hit 'em by surprise, we will be successful. If we do what so many fools clamor for, run first, we will waste downs, lose possessions, get into too many 2nd and longs, 3rd and longs, etc., and put too much pressure on the passing game. It's NOT forcing the run on early downs that wins games, it's having the CAPABILITY to run that makes a difference. Let Aaron Rodgers be Aaron Rodgers, and we will win games - particularly THIS game.


I would agree with you if we were in any other season except this one, you know when we DIDN'T have a running game? We've been successful running the ball on early downs this year from what I recall. So, you're wrong. Running on early downs is not a bad idea. I think you're stuck in the past.

I see where you are going with this, but I think they are running on first a little more often than they should. Seems like they were running it on first almost every time in Chicago - which got to be quite predictable toward the end of the game. If that were against an average or good D - it wouldn't have been as successful.

The past I'm stuck in is basically the best of the past few years hahahaha. Since some people and media have been whining about not "running first", we have had numerous cases of run for a yard, run for two yards, run for a loss, etc. - first down, sometimes second down too, setting up a pressure packed 3rd and long with those wasted plays. Our O Line just isn't strong enough to run without the element of surprise. PASS FIRST to set up the run, THAT is the key.
