Green Bay Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy is looking fantastic. James Starks is looking like he did when the Packers won the Super Bowl. But the reason the Packers are running with a vengeance is because Mike McCarthy took a chance.
We do not normally like to thank McCarthy all that much, given the occasionally boneheaded play call, or mismanagement. But the truth is if he does not take a chance in the offseason in shaking up the offensive line, we might be right back in last season. Lacy might be doing alright, but he would not have had near the success as he has with this line.



It is true the line is doing a better job this year. That said a lot of the credit goes to the rbs.

When there are 6 tackles for a loss for -14 yards against a weak team like MN there are still some issues.

Even though they might struggle in pass protection at times, I love the blue collar, chip on their shoulders approach that EDS and Barclay bring to the run game.

Dumbest article ever.

This improvement is ALL about the RBs.

Were peeps calling for EDS to be replaced?

IMO, EDS was one of our strongest linemen this week. Seemed to do a good job pushing defenders out of the lanes and also sealing the lane.

So does Bryan Bulaga move back to the right next year to compete with Barclay and Sherrod?

I would say Bulaga gets slotted at RT and Bacteria and Sherrod fight it out for left tackle. Barclay should be moved to reserve guard.

Obviously EDS is a huge upgrade from Saturday; Barclay is at least a little bit better than Newhouse; Bakhtiari is doing a fairly decent job; Lang is OK but nothing special; And Sitton is a very good player.

Let's not get carried away, however, about their play as a unit. Aaron Rodgers gets at least hurried virtually every pass play. When there is run called and no element of surprise, the line blocking is still mostly a woeful mess.

When there was success on a running play, I mostly give Aaron Rodgers credit. Defenses absolutely need to scheme to stop his passing, enabling the Packers to run - but on the early downs, the line was still mostly inadequate at opening holes.

Packer O Line play has been so bad for so long that even the small improvement this year seems like a big deal. I'd really like to see what Rodgers could do with more time to set up - with consistently decent O Line play. Similarly, Lacy would be even more effective if he got run blocking even up to the league average of effectiveness. Is that too much to hope for?

That kind of stuff happened even to Barry Sanders. Sometimes the lineman just get beat.

We definitely have better running backs this year. It's so refreshing to see.

I seem to remember clamoring before the draft for a C to taken (me included). Plus there was talk after Tretter and Bahk were taken about their ability to move inside and possibly play C. Though I have to admit he's performed better than expected.

I took the losses early from Minnesota playing the run/not respecting the weapons outside of Nelson and being jacked up by the opening kick off. Once the adrenaline wore off and the play calling was adjusted a little the run game quickly picked up.

twice on the first possession.
once in the 2nd quarter.
twice in the 4th quarter.

Interesting Aaron took a knee twice to end the game. That technically makes 7 but the last 2 shouldn't count. But why does NFL.com say there are 6? There was a bunch of no gains as well. Didn't count them perhaps 4 or so where lacy had to bust his chops just to get back to the LOS.
