The attempts are important but I'd like to average at least 3 yards a carry. We will need it when the weather gets cool, and on 3rd and short it can be a very tough down for d's if they know we can pound it in there.

Kuhn looked good but Green wasn't given the same holes. With only one padded practice it's really hard to get the running game up to par in this era. We also tried a few weird /fancy shotgun draws that went backwards.

Had a chance to watch Johnny White the other day. New RB has some skills. I wouldn't be shocked to see him get some carries down the road.

The good thing about today, even though we were kind of getting stuffed in the run game, we didn't just abandon it. That was good to see. Even when you're not being productive, as long as you keep pounding the rock a little bit, it still keeps them honest.

What TJ Lang said. Yes, it's the carries that matter. The yards don't. We'll make up those yards through the air. We saw two straight games where we dominated the games and our running "sucked" but we had lots of carries.

I can't say we can't run, we never even line up to try.

I can think of One attempt and it was a Rodgers sneak. And we have been in some 3rd and <1yard. We get 3rd and 1 and we go 5 wide. That is what pisses me off.

Occasionally we'll do that FB dive play with Kuhn.

I really don't know why we don't even do that as a diversion to the pass? At least make them think we will run it.

My My My, I'm just thinking to myself, wonder what Ryan Grant is thinking.
Probably, man I feel sorry for that kid, I put up 1200+ yds a yr. before I was injured and most wanted me gone, this kid has no chance. Oh well better him than me.

I'm gonns reference Barry Sanders here, not that Alex Green will ever be close to him.

I remember The Packers charting Barry's runs, some of you might also.
Looked something like this...2uds, 1yd, 4yds, 3yds. 6yds, -3yds, 8yds,3yds, 85 yd TD run.
Was always The Packers goal to keep Barry from hitting that one big run. Most of the time they failed, and he usually had more than 1 of those big runs.

The point is, and it has been stated many times in this thread, in today's game, today's Packers, need a RB who can in this order, pass block, catch passes out of the backfield, hold onto the ball when given his chances, get what positive yds you can when called on.

Green already has shown he can make things happen when he gets into open space, but that's not gonna happen a lot. As long as he gives The Packers the points stated above, he will be fine. Oh what a great feeling it will be when he does break out and run for daylight every once in awhile.

He opened up the passing game and that is all we should really care about. His measly ypc backed off the pass rush...
