The red zone statistic is vitally important to a team's success on offense — a statistic that the Green Bay Packers have been bucking as of late.

This stat, which measures how many times a team gets to the red zone and how many times they score a touchdown in the red zone, is probably an underrated statistic, in that it doesn’t get as much attention as other statistics.

The “red zone theory” has long been taught in “football philosophy.” It says that a team consistently settling for field goals instead of touchdowns while in the red zone, is a team that will have trouble achieving success in the win/loss column.

Problem in the red zone, is that Aaron can't throw deep.

The red zone problem is partly an aberration which will take care of itself, partly a product of playing good teams with strong defenses, and partly the fault of this new attitude of trying to run more on early downs. Just let Aaron be Aaron, and we will be back to a strong percentage of TDs in the red zone.

As much as I am enjoying the Lacy show along with more balanced playcalling - you have a valid point. We are watching a team in an offensive transition. Once they find the best mix of plays that suits our team - things should even out and we will see more touchdowns.

I believe what you say is true and the Packers will be a better team down the stretch as a result.

Well, in those last two games the packers have been 0/6 in the red-zone, though I would say only 0/4 based on the circumstances.

Two against Detroit
one we ran 5 plays in the red zone - 1 run for 7 yards, and 4 passes before kicking the FG
the second was two plays in the redzone - Both passes

4 against Baltimore
one was 2 runs gaining 7 and 1 incomplete pass
another was 4 passes with 2 offensive penalties.
third was Crosby kicking when the defense force the turnover at the end of the half
Forth was Rodgers taking a knee at the end of the game.

Total for the season, 20 trips into the redzone 3 of them were knees or Crosby FG in BAl with no time for the offense so I only count 17. Of those 17 times we went into the redzone and tried to score we succeeded on 53% to get a TD. 94% overall.

Of the 8 times we tried to score and settled for FG. we have dropped back to pass 19 times and run 5 times. So the theory that the run game is somehow causing this is completely BS. Of those 8 only once did we run the ball more than once in the redzone downs. 3 times we never ran. One of them being Jones fumble touchback.

I feel pretty good about our team being 3-2 against for the most part against quality opponents with as bad of a red zone efficiency as we have had. If defense continues to improve on the path they are heading, I think we have something special brewing if the red zone efficiency improves.

Easy fix......JUST SCORE FROM OUTSIDE THE REDZONE!!!

Pound Lacy enough and ,as we saw against baltimore, it's only a matter of time until a team will load up the box, that's when Jordy and jermicheal will shine deep!!!

Funny how the games The packers won is the games we didn't score in the redzone.

My feeling is that the writer is just trying to find doom anf gloom stories to write about.

Keep thinking the worst is going to happen, it probably will.

Browns are going to be tough to score on, I predict another low scoring slobberknocker.

packers one advantage is Weeden, keep the pressure on him and he will turn the ball over.

I find the article more curious from the perspective of how much Rodgers gets lauded for his red zone beast mode.

What percentage of this is due to passing on third and short?

Pound it in with Lacy ........ IF we have 1st and Goal inside the 5. Run a normal pass first offense if we have 1st and 10 outside the 15. 1st and 10 between the 5 and 15, don't waste downs by running that could be used to throw for a TD. Deviate only if the defensive set is extreme against what we have called, in which case, Rodgers can change the play at the line.

Didn't the 2010 Packers struggle in the red zone early on?


EDIT: False alarm, they struggled on third downs.
