Sounds like these guys are pretty jacked to finally be able to run the rock.
We used running backs in the running game less than 30% of the time? Where does McCarthy live? I'm going to hunt him down!
“McCarthy and coaching staff spent a large part of bye week on self scouting. A key conclusion: "The run game needs attempts. That's really the biggest thing coming out of the self scout."
Quote from Mike after the bye week last year. Mike ran less after the bye week. Mike was not good.
Cilli, you are SO NOT KIDDING! Holy F! I was SO pissed... Whew! Glad that's in the past. MLF ran 50% or possibly more with TEN last year. He will not be afraid to bring us balance. I feel so much better now. Smoke a bowl. Ring a chime. Watch 'em run!
From the article: Under Mike McCarthy the past 13 seasons, Green Bay traveled primarily by air. The Packers ranked in the top-10 in rushing offense just once under McCarthy and were in the bottom-12 a whopping seven times
I think now more than ever its important to run the football. In today's pass happy NFL you can control the clock and keep your defense fresh by running the ball. Now I am not saying to run a wing T offense and only pass 3 times a game but good things will happen when you find that balance.
It will be fun watching if running is increased......love Aaron’s game but dang it, we NEED balance in our attack.
