With the NFL Draft about a month away and free agency still dribbling bits and pieces of news our way, it's time we concentrate once more on the future exploits of the Green Bay Packers and even more specifically today — Aaron Rodgers. Sans his broken collarbone last season, Rodgers was probably on his


Better OL=less sacks= Aaron picking apart defenses= wins.

GB had the 9th most sacks. Need to improve it along with hits, pressures and hurries.

NOT by becoming a run first team, that's for sure. They need to use Lacy, Starks, etc. as change of paces and to run clock with big leads late in the game.

I don't think anything too drastic needs to be done with the O-Line - just good health and consistency of personnel will help a lot.

Inside his helmet, place a 4-second timer, if he still has the ball after 4 seconds, ZAP his ears. That should solve the holding the ball too long issue and improve his play dramatically. He might even win a few games.

If we don't see our running game used the exact opposite of what you are proposing, we're in trouble, and so is Rodgers.

Running early establishes a legitimate threat to run on any play, forcing defenses to play more honest as opposed to an all-out air assault that primes defenses to pin their ears back and rush Rodgers exclusively.

A solid running game with Lacy and Starks, used effectively early and often, will open up a lot of options for Rodgers in the passing game. Defenses will have to honor the run, and will have great difficulty covering the play action pass.

Running early and often also helps to wear out the opposing front seven, and helps your OL play more effectively. This will all help us get the big leads, and then we can go to Lacy and Starks to close out games.

Not sure if you realize this, but we have two equally adept studs on offense now, Rodgers and Lacy. Both could carry a team, and together they will. No longer are we in need of Rodgers putting up career numbers in order to win.

Rodgers could very well have one of his best years yet with a balanced attack of pass and run. Less double coverage, more long, sustained drives, more TOP. More opportunities. More scoring.

Common now Zero. Aaron needs an impenetrable wall of human flesh in front of him. Don't you know that Mike and he want Aaron to break every Favre record? How else can he stat whore if he is not given the chance to hold the ball forever?

I get sick of this CRAP about Rodgers holding the ball too long. I call that good judgment/avoiding putting it up for grabs/making plays with his legs etc.

And as for you 3 yards and a cloud of dust guys, I am so thankful that the Packers do NOT have that kind of run first philosophy. Let the losers do that shit. If we can get things under control even a little bit with our D, just keeping on doing what we do with our offense will make the Packers virtually unbeatable.

Good judgement is passing up wide open guys underneath in order to throw deep?

Make Aaron adhere to fundamentals. High percentage plays. Add in some screens. Guys like Franklin and Harris have enough speed and elusiveness to turn any well blocked screen into a big play. And burn clock.

You can take your shots downfield when the D cheats up to nab screens and chuck our wideouts. Those opportunities will come.

He throws the short high percentage plays underneath as much as anyone else. What are you even talking about? On top of that they routinely have one of the most efficient deep passing attacks of any team int he league. Rodgers is fine how he is and the offense is fine how it is.

Watch the first Q of the playoff game this past year. Too many damn lulls.

Since the thread asks what the Green Bay Packers can do for Rodgers (rather than what Rodgers can do to be better) I will go with this:

OFFENSE
1) Get a good Center in the draft to create competition there and let the best man win. This also builds depth at the position rather than have to shuffle starters around due to injury.

2) Get a good TE in the draft that can both block and run the seam route. This opens things up for Arod and the WR's.

DEFENSE
1) Draft the best Safety and ILB they can get. Any other D players that are good would be a bonus.

2) Get more three and outs and create better field position so Arod has more chances to do what he does and not have to carry the team on his damn back.

When the Oline is in tune and blocking for Lacy and he's having a good game it helps Rodgers immensely. When the D is creating turnovers and getting the 3 and outs they win.

It's when there's no run game and the D can't make a damn stop on third down that Arod is forced to carry the team on his back. In these times if he doesn't make plays we lose.

His 5th quarter of football in 9 weeks. That's not really a great segment to use as an example considering the circumstances. Not to mention that the offensive line play at the beginning of that game was just embarrassing.

I really really .... really*n want to see Rodgers come back in the 4th qtr and win a game by himself.
One of those scenarios where you are losing by 4 with 3 minutes left and he completes 8 of 9 passes for a game winning TD.

I think he has never done that in his life. And I think such an achievement will boost his game a lot.

So what can the Packers do? Easy, just make sure we are losing in the last 3 minutes!

How to make Rodgers better, put me as a CB on every team he faces.

On a serious note. Keep Lacy in the backfield with Rodgers under center. Play action is so much more effective than when in the short gun. Forces the LBers to play closer opening up the field for the WR. Can also get rid of the ball even quicker making slants more difficult to defend, also opening up the slugo.

And the better the run game, the better Rodgers will be.
