Don't forget that Mike McCarthy said that the quick slants, and the short passes are a staple of this offense. I guess not just last year, or when you only need a yard.

Who is the quick slant receiver? That used to be a TE or Driver job when Favre was leading the team. Not comfortable with Finley being the 3rd down go to guy. I can see Franklin being the short pass RB this year.

Cobb could be the quick slant receiver. Not that he is limited to that. I know he says he doesn't want to be.

Rodgers had a total of 16 attempts over 30 yards last year. Over 97% of his throws were under 31 yards.

498 attempts were 20 yards or under compared to 54 over 20. About 90% of his throws were under 21 yards.

378 attempts out of 552 total were 10 yards or under. About 67% of the throws were under 11 yards.

Play calling. I don't want to see us passing as much on 2nd and 3rd and 1. Do it a couple times but we have made it a habit these past couple years and that's no good.


Great point, and I've said it before... going for the bomb pass play on 2nd/3rd and short is a great play when teams aren't expecting it... BUT Mike McCarthy gets into happens (like this and Kuhn on FB run) and they go from successful trick plays to everyone is expecting it and working at much small % of the times they run it.

Like Kuhn FB run,

Kuhn had 10 carries for 8 yards against NFC North teams. An average of 0.8 yards per carry.

Kuhn had 13 carries for 55 yards against teams outside the division. An average bit over 4.23 yards per carry.


He did the Kuhn FB run against teams in the division that they knew it was coming.

The 2nd/3rd and short long pass he's used it enough that I think most coaches game planning him that they know it's coming.
