With the NFL Draft about a month away and free agency still dribbling bits and pieces of news our way, it's time we concentrate once more on the future exploits of the Green Bay Packers and even more specifically today — Aaron Rodgers. Sans his broken collarbone last season, Rodgers was probably on his


Better OL=less sacks= Aaron picking apart defenses= wins.

GB had the 9th most sacks. Need to improve it along with hits, pressures and hurries.

NOT by becoming a run first team, that's for sure. They need to use Lacy, Starks, etc. as change of paces and to run clock with big leads late in the game.

I don't think anything too drastic needs to be done with the O-Line - just good health and consistency of personnel will help a lot.

Inside his helmet, place a 4-second timer, if he still has the ball after 4 seconds, ZAP his ears. That should solve the holding the ball too long issue and improve his play dramatically. He might even win a few games.

If we don't see our running game used the exact opposite of what you are proposing, we're in trouble, and so is Rodgers.

Running early establishes a legitimate threat to run on any play, forcing defenses to play more honest as opposed to an all-out air assault that primes defenses to pin their ears back and rush Rodgers exclusively.

A solid running game with Lacy and Starks, used effectively early and often, will open up a lot of options for Rodgers in the passing game. Defenses will have to honor the run, and will have great difficulty covering the play action pass.

Running early and often also helps to wear out the opposing front seven, and helps your OL play more effectively. This will all help us get the big leads, and then we can go to Lacy and Starks to close out games.

Not sure if you realize this, but we have two equally adept studs on offense now, Rodgers and Lacy. Both could carry a team, and together they will. No longer are we in need of Rodgers putting up career numbers in order to win.

Rodgers could very well have one of his best years yet with a balanced attack of pass and run. Less double coverage, more long, sustained drives, more TOP. More opportunities. More scoring.

Common now Zero. Aaron needs an impenetrable wall of human flesh in front of him. Don't you know that Mike and he want Aaron to break every Favre record? How else can he stat whore if he is not given the chance to hold the ball forever?

I get sick of this CRAP about Rodgers holding the ball too long. I call that good judgment/avoiding putting it up for grabs/making plays with his legs etc.

And as for you 3 yards and a cloud of dust guys, I am so thankful that the Packers do NOT have that kind of run first philosophy. Let the losers do that shit. If we can get things under control even a little bit with our D, just keeping on doing what we do with our offense will make the Packers virtually unbeatable.

Good judgement is passing up wide open guys underneath in order to throw deep?

Make Aaron adhere to fundamentals. High percentage plays. Add in some screens. Guys like Franklin and Harris have enough speed and elusiveness to turn any well blocked screen into a big play. And burn clock.

You can take your shots downfield when the D cheats up to nab screens and chuck our wideouts. Those opportunities will come.

He throws the short high percentage plays underneath as much as anyone else. What are you even talking about? On top of that they routinely have one of the most efficient deep passing attacks of any team int he league. Rodgers is fine how he is and the offense is fine how it is.

Watch the first Q of the playoff game this past year. Too many damn lulls.
