In response to wozzy's comment:
Which doesn't explain how we didn't run "well" in 2003 with Smith averaging 3.5 yards per carry and Faulk averaging 3.6 YPC... but for SOME REASON we fed Smith the rock in the playoffs (16 carries in the 1st game, 22 in the 2nd game and 26 carries in the Super Bowl) as well as a heavy dose of Kevin Faulk and SOMEHOW we won a Super Bowl despite our defense giving up 30 points...
Funny how we didn't have RB talent for what, 5 years, yet somehow we didn't look to address that need? You people are daft... We had one tightend and one fullback on the roster last year, this year we have 5 total.
I guess Mike Reis is another run happy homer... but hey, you guys probably have greater insights into the Patriot's inner working than he does.
????? It means they found a way to make it work. Do you think 16-24 carries (which isn't that much) is the reason for the sucess? UGH
They DID address the need BECAUSE it sucked last year. Get it?
Here's what Rogers had to say on his run game. Any of his sound familiar? Guess he's just a know nothing troll too. Guess the FACT that BB used the run game the way he did, means he's a know nothing coacch too. Speaking of daft? WOW
Rodgers says the Packers’ running game isn’t good enough Posted by Michael David Smith on October 31, 2012, 2:43 PM EST
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says the passing attack in Green Bay is carrying the offense, and it’s past time for the Packers to get things going on the ground.
Rodgers said during his weekly radio show on WAUK-AM that the Packers can’t just throw the ball on every play, and so they’ve got to get more out of their running game than they had on Sunday, when they picked up 66 yards on 26 carries.
“Quantity is important – we want to have a certain amount of runs every game to keep them honest,” Rodgers said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “But I have to say the quality of them has not been anywhere where we’d like them. . . . We’ve got to run the ball better.”
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said this week that he’s sticking with Alex Green, who is averaging just 2.9 yards a carry, as the No. 1 running back. So there aren’t any reinforcements coming to turn things around, at least until Cedric Benson returns from a foot injury, which won’t happen for several weeks.
Which means that Rodgers, who is on pace to throw a career-high 594 passes this season, is going to keep having to carry the offense. Rodgers is right that the Packers’ running game isn’t good enough, and there’s little reason to think it’s going to get better any time soon
***** Note, Rogers is a dck that will throw his team under the bus and TB would never do that but I'd be willing to wager good money that TB thought the same way .
