I can run the ball, in Madden!

Aaron Rodgers said:
I think you just have to have at least a little bit of a threat at it, because we do a lot of play-action, movement game, where we’re breaking and rolling out or just play-action and throwing timing routes, and the defense has to respect it enough to suck up a little bit on the fake and give you some good throwing lanes. Sometimes you can do that by just having a big-name back in there and sometimes you need to be effective doing it. We’re going to have to prove that we can run the ball.

Before the Super Bowl run, Mike McCarthy talked about how important running the ball is, and said about half of the passing playbook was based off the threat of run... or something like that... 50% seems to be a high percentage... lets hope they get their act together.

Though the 1st string OL didn't look horrible running the ball... the back-ups have. And the 1st string still needs to get better.

See, I think with this group they have.. especially a guards.. they can run the ball. The Packers, that being MM, needs to commit to running the ball.

Before Zombieslayer goes off on the passing game.. and this being a passing league.. lol; we don't need to become a run dominate teams.

We have to be able to run when the game dictates it.. to open up the playbook, and if need be protect our defense in the mean time.

Again.. it is not just about running the ball.. it is all about what it does for the rest of the team. It is not just about being hung up on the traditional roots of the game... it is about balance and situational football. Keeping our MVP candidate from taking shots because the pass rush doesn't even pause of the run.

I don't want to see the return of Bart Starr and Forrest Greggs run run pass punt football.. I don't want to see a ground and pound game.

I want the Packers, when they need to run.. be able to run the freaking ball. It takes practice and timing.. just like a passing game.. and just the same you just can't flick a switch and it is there. Hence why they need to establish and use that running game from week one to 17.. just to have it ready and lubed for use in the playoffs when it calls for it to be used.

Don't care if it is milking the clock with a lead.. controlling the clock and keeping the defense on the sidelines.. converting shorts.. setting the table for 3rd and optional football.. or knocking in a score late.

Don't care other to be there and ready when need be.

Don't want it to be the primary focus of the offense.. as this league has rigged the game to be a passing league, but there is still an important place in football for the running game.

There.. [horse]
thanks Post received 2 applause.

With teams like the Chiefs, 49ers, Giants, Bears hanging around I will say I agree 100% with this.

Exactly.

But then according to good ol zombieslayer about a year or so ago, and I paraphrase here..
..."Don't need no stinkin' defense, when we got Rodgers and our WR's. Defense doesn't win championships"

Now it is...
"Don't need no stinkin' running backs, we have Rodgers and our WR's and a better defense.
Running backs don't win championships"


Bwaahhaaaa Lets Box!


Speaking of which ZS, we only have a couple of weeks to make some kind of interesting wager.
You game bucko?

uffda udfa (1h) : Just rewatched Cobbs hail mary catch in slo mo...he should've been flagged for OPI. Got away with one.
uffda udfa (4h) : Nope. I like Gus.
beast (4h) : Did you want Anthony Lynn as HC? Cushion Bradley was going to follow Lynn where ever.
uffda udfa (5h) : Gus Bradley is new DC in SD/LA. I would've loved to had him here in Green Bay.
uffda udfa (9h) : It's just fine.
musccy (9h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (10h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (11h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (11h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (11h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (12h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (12h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (12h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (15h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (16h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (16h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (16h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (16h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (18h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (18h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (18h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (19h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (19h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (20h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (20h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (20h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (20h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (21h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (21h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (21h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (21h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (21h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (23h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (20-Jan) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (20-Jan) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
