The Packers felt comfortable letting James Jones go in free agency because they thought Jarrett Boykin was ready to move up the depth chart after a strong showing while filling in for the injured Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson at different points in 2013. Nothing that they've seen this spring or summer has changed that...

Good news to hear about Boykin, even though it is what I would expect McCarthy to say at this time of year regardless.

I still feel that GB is going to feel effects from not having either Jennings or Jones this year. Regardless of how good Boykins now is, there's still a drop off at number 4. And in this offense, that is more significant than with other teams. Especially since our "best" option at TE is now R Rodgers.

This along with two members of our secondary saying JB is the hardest WR to cover in practice and with how good he was last year makes me feel like he's legit. I don't know if he'll reach the production he had last year though because I think Jordy, Lacy, and Cobb are going to all take a ton of the action but he should be able to at least get close.

That's what happens when you set your Madden difficulty to Rookie. Give Novice a try and then come talk.

So you DON'T think they're gonna run Eddie Lacy more than they're gonna pass?

What? The lowest pass attempts in the league last year was 417. There's no way in hell Lacy is getting over 400 carries, at least I hope not.

Yes they are going to run Eddie lacy, but he can't carry the ball every play.

I guess you haven't been watching what has been going on.

Packers goal is to run 75 plays a game, plenty of balls to go around.

I'm sure you will be calling it stat-whoring, I'm gonna call it good, solid game planning.

Keep the opposing teams defense on the field!!!!!

You've been screaming about TOP for years now, what the hell do you want??

So scoring quickly without many plays is stat whoring and running too many plays is also stat whoring.[laughing]

How is that Stat- whoring??????

You scream and yell about the Defenses deficiencies, yet if The Offensd runs 75 plays and keeps The defense off the field, you call it Stat-Whoring.

WTH do you want???????

Chip Kelly's offense is not about burning clock. It's about running plays as quickly as possible. Mike's version of that is to throw deep as quickly and often as possible.

I guess you haven't watched the games, The Packers 1's were on the field for 6 series last game and threw the ball deep 1 time. I think I read where they ran 49 plays in those 6 series.

You've been harping on this for years, and have been wrong for years, you just can't admit it.
