I do not believe any of this, at all. Our opinions of how to best be successful on offense differ greatly.

Green Bay rushed more last year than they had since 2009. And, they still need to rush more than that. They can do it. McCarthy saw how important it was to an effective offense. At least, I hope like hell he did. What you described above got us killed at home against SF and away at SEA to start our season, amongst other horrific losses, each of which followed McCarthy's pass happy failure by ignoring the run: IND, NYG come to mind. Not to mention, Rodgers took a pounding. He was sacked more than any QB in 2012, 51 times. The point is, they need to run more, way more.

We need to be a more powerful, determined team altogether, and that includes offensively. pound that rock with the run, and our OL will be more effective, as will our passing game, which we all know to be pretty damn good. You know when it is not pretty damn good? When we fail to run the football. This is really simple stuff.


I'm not sure you got my point. The point is they need to run the ball BETTER. If the running game stays at it's current level of effectiveness just running the ball more isn't going to make them suddenly able to beat up on people they couldn't beat up on before. More plays where the RB gets destroyed in the backfield or runs outside and loses a couple extra yards isn't what is needed. More plays where the RB hits the hole decisively, falls forward and actually gets 4 yards or a critical first down is what is needed. It's fine if in your opinion more shitty runs will improve the offense but more shitty runs are still more shitty runs and it won't improve by very much and that isn't enough.

If we actually had a reliable and consistent running game McCarthy I'm sure would use it (he has before) and then everybody would say "see running helps" but it's obvious he doesn't trust it enough to lean on in important situations and I don't blame him.

Thanks Steve. Gotcha.

I agree, their attempts, while up, have been very ineffective. Not to mention, Rodgers alone accounted for 55 rushing attempts last year.

I can't help but feel McCarthy has been resistant to utilizing the run - making matters worse. I'm hoping that changes! Better personnel, and a more dedicated mindset is what we need in order to improve.
