Aaron Rodgers says the Packers’ running game isn’t good enough

Packers Texans Football AP

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.

    Rodgers throwing his teammates under the bus again. He’s just like Cutler, except he is far better and therefore gets away with more.

    File this under “things we all knew already. “

    Maybe its the offensive line, they can pass block but not run block.

  4. hamcamnewton says: Oct 31, 2012 2:50 PM

    DeAngelo Williams

  5. Sarcasm says: Oct 31, 2012 2:51 PM

    Will A-rod feel the same wrath of the media/fans that claimed Peyton Manning threw his OL under the bus when he stated the fact that “we had protection problems”?

  6. norseyapper says: Oct 31, 2012 2:51 PM

    But Aaron, you’ve always shouted your thanks when the Packers have drafted yet another quality receiver for you. Doesn’t it make sense that to have that “quality” in your running game you would need to spend something higher than a 3rd round pick on a running back once in a while, and that doing so may mean you’d have to make do with 4 stud quality receivers instead 5-6-or 7?
    Not to say that WR depth is a bad thing, and that depth is currently being appreicated, but the two issues are related.

  7. purplengold says: Oct 31, 2012 2:52 PM

    Their defense also isn’t good enough.

    Steven Jackson?

  9. linvillegorge says: Oct 31, 2012 2:55 PM

    Sounds like he’s perhaps nudging management to make a move prior to the trade deadline? Lots of rumors that they’ve been kicking the tires on potentially making a deal for Stephen Jackson or DeAngelo Williams.

  10. jgava19 says: Oct 31, 2012 2:55 PM

    Where is the love for Starks?
    He’s obviously better than Green.
    Did he hit on someone’s wife. I don’t get it.

  11. packfaninthehook says: Oct 31, 2012 2:56 PM

    He’s not wrong. The Packers only ran for 1606 yards in 2010. But they’re actually on pace to fall short of that mark with just 721 through eight games. And Rodgers makes up 129 of those total rushing yards.

  12. lightcleric says: Oct 31, 2012 2:58 PM

    starks is in the doghouse for fumbles and injuries, well deserved. I do think he’s urging the front office to make a move. He didn’t get Lynch last year and they paid the price. If they didn’t have Rodgers I winder how bad they would be, anyone deny that he is literally carrying the team?

  20. packownsu says: Oct 31, 2012 3:12 PM

    It’s part of being a leader to tell guys to pick up their game when needed. It’s also part of being a leader to admit when you have to pick up your own game. Rodgers does both of these things in. It’s idiotic to make a comment that he’s throwing people under the bus.

  21. greenbay4ever says: Oct 31, 2012 3:13 PM

    It’s not throwing someone under the bus when you say we haven’t been running the ball well. That is true. No need to get all hot and bothered, relax. The running game sucks. Green is not good. At least not yet. It’s time to get another back.

    Also,norseyapper ,

    Aaron doesn’t do the drafting. No need to blame him for not picking up a running back higher than the 3rd round. …Stupid, just stupid.

  22. dougy1970 says: Oct 31, 2012 3:16 PM

    Rodgers is as arrogant as Brady, but without the will.

  23. contraisloosebuthole says: Oct 31, 2012 3:19 PM

    Shut up and throw the ball Rodgers. It was not until Benson went down that the offense clicked. Running the ball is overrated and boring.

  24. shlort says: Oct 31, 2012 3:19 PM

    Rodgers didnt say the run game isnt good enough. He said it needs to be better than it has been. I am sure the O-line thinks they can do a better job and Alex Green probably isnt satisfied with under 3 yards a run.

    One thing people dont understand about most NFL teams and players is that they know when they do poorly and know they can improve from week to week. That is how they get better at whatever position they play. The teams that dont say they can get better are the ones we see losing every week.

    Good NFL players are self starters and stive to be great.

  25. baloneyjohn says: Oct 31, 2012 3:20 PM

    Throw short passes into the flat.
    Try some end reverses
    Try some draw plays.
    Be creative instead of running thru the 5 hole

  26. vargavarga says: Oct 31, 2012 3:21 PM

    Their O-line just can’t run block, plain and simple. You mean to tell me after running a turn-style at RB, that none of them are good. That’s highly unlikely.

  27. iluvbears says: Oct 31, 2012 3:21 PM

    Duh, whatever gave him that idea?

  28. faultylogic29 says: Oct 31, 2012 3:23 PM

    It’s that time of the week again, where a story is made from some of Rodgers’ comments from his weekly radio show, and the trolls find a way to say he’s complaining, full of himself, etc.

    What responses are we going to have this week?

  29. samanthasteeleruinedmyqb says: Oct 31, 2012 3:24 PM

    I’ve been told for the last three years by Packer fans that the running game doesn’t matter. Now their hero says they need to run the ball. This is very confusing for me.

  30. shlort says: Oct 31, 2012 3:27 PM

    norseyapper , there hasnt been quality runnig backs coming out of college very often as of late. A lot of college teams use some form of the option offense and that keeps running backs from getting hands on experience in college. Then, if there are any decent RBs coming out, the bad teams get the best picks and take them early. Every now and again a team gets a guy who no one heard of and they turn into something, but that doesnt happen often.

    Anyway, most NFL teams are so pass happy these days because they cant find good running backs. College programs refuse to get these players ready for the pros. Wait a few years and see what happens when teams start needing QBs. The NFL will be a run option league because that is what the NCAA is putting out there.

    ===================================

    Coming from a Packer fan, they can’t pass block either. Why they haven’t looked into brining back Cliffy is beyond me? Rumor has it he hired a personal trainer in the off-season for the 1st time in his career and was feeling pretty good for an old, wiley vet.

  32. bla bla bla says: Oct 31, 2012 3:31 PM

    Starks has been injured and is just now being worked back in, slowly. Unfortunately, last year before he was injured he didn’t do much either, which is what led to the Ced Benson pick up. Starks had a great 2010 postseason, but after that, nada.

    And for the guy above that’s bemoaning the Packers’ RB draft strategy, Alex Green was taken in the 2nd round last year.

    You Viking fans never stop amazing. Your team hasn’t been relevant since the hick quit on your team against New Orleans, and whatever fast start it had this year is going to look far better than what is coming up. You may wish to keep your concern to your own team as that Ponder fellow is….well….just not very good. But enjoy him…while wearing that purple No. 4 jersey you undoubtedly still wear, right?

  35. taintedsaints2009 says: Oct 31, 2012 3:38 PM

    This is Rodgers passive way of asking for a deal to get a big name running back. He’s been doing it for three years.

  36. mvp43 says: Oct 31, 2012 3:40 PM

    McCarthy and Rodgers would pass the ball 100% of the time if they could…….but he can’t really say that.

    Its like going to the dentist…….. you don’t want to, but you know you have to.

  37. shaggytoodle says: Oct 31, 2012 3:41 PM

    The line play has made it hard for the run game, and also Rodgers this year. It will take time to gel with a new center.

    Its also going to take Green a while to get use to seeing things at the speed of the NFL and what he reads to make.

    I don’t feel the Packers need to trade for a RB, because a few seasons ago everyone wanted to bring Marshawn Lynch into town. Things worked out ok for the Packers that season without doing so.

  38. srcnsd says: Oct 31, 2012 3:43 PM

    Their running game could definitely use a discount doublecheck.

  39. gooch80 says: Oct 31, 2012 3:45 PM

    I know everyone is quick to shout “Steven Jackson” or “DeAngelo Williams”. Look at the numbers. The Packers can’t make a move like that unless the other team eats a big chunk of their respective salaries, which isn’t going to happen. I know this comment isn’t quick or funny, it’s just a shot of reality into the situation.

  40. zzr600guy says: Oct 31, 2012 3:49 PM

    SJax or DeAngelo could help. Too bad both of their contracts don’t match their production

  41. gnarlswoodson says: Oct 31, 2012 3:49 PM

    No coincidence that MM says Green is his guy, and than this. Rodgers wants a RB, probably isn’t going to get one. And when Benson comes back, something tells me he is going to be useless anyway.

  42. packfan429 says: Oct 31, 2012 3:55 PM

    Yes I’m bias, but the media is trying to make him look like a bad guy again.

    Non-packers fans consider that as throwing his teammates under the bus, ya right, get real!!! He didn’t come out and say that Green needs to do better.

    But, truth be told, he does need to do better and also our run protection stinks! The O-line performs at the average level at best week after week, ARod bails them out each and every game by his ability.

    Rodgers is not at all like Cutler. I’ve never seen Cutler throw a single teammate “under the bus” publicly. I will agree however he does get away with more and definitely complains more.

  44. thetokyosandblaster says: Oct 31, 2012 4:00 PM

    I know why these vikings fans are here. They have a running game (when their oft injured back isn’t on the bench nursing a booboo), but they have nothing else. No QB, Only one WR that’s worth a damn, and a defense that is mediocre.

    Ah well, perhaps in 2112 they’ll get that elusive Super Bowl.

    We all know none of us will be around to see them win one.

    He has a weekly radio show. What can he possibly say that wont fuel some foolish negative talk? He said the Packers running game is not good enough and people start with the “he’s throwing his teammates under the bus”… Dolts

  49. deltaoracle says: Oct 31, 2012 4:33 PM

    Barry Sanders in his prime couldn’t run for 100 yards the way that the Pack’s OLine has been “blocking.” GB needs to junk the zone blocking stuff and get new OLine coaches. Like yesterday.

  50. caliksworld says: Oct 31, 2012 4:40 PM

    I don’t get what the big deal is. Rodgers just reiterated what pretty much everyone in the Packers organization has been saying for a few weeks now. Most in the organization have said that the quantity and balance is improving but the quality/effectiveness of the run still needs to improve. Unfortunately, even with all of the talk of improvement, the actual quality of the run during games still hasn’t improved at all.

  51. pack13queens0 says: Oct 31, 2012 4:54 PM

    The NFL is a passing league. The ONLY thing running backs are useful for is blocking. And with A-Rod in control, the Packers won’t need a running game. They’re not losing another game for the rest of the season.

  52. realninerfan22 says: Oct 31, 2012 4:59 PM

    Stephen jackson wouldnt be a good fit because he needs 20 to 25 touches to be great. GB isnt built like that. Plus if they were built like that, Rodgers wouldnt be trowing 309 yard games every week. So you want the hot QB With the great numbers or do you want a well balanced attack like the Niners??

  53. wildcatwilly says: Oct 31, 2012 4:59 PM

    They have won three games in a row are sitting pretty good at 5-3 face the cardinals this week then have the bye week to rest up things could be worse.

  54. tokyomanblastersmom says: Oct 31, 2012 5:05 PM

    Does Rodgers EVER just focus on himself and show accountability for his own play?

    Why does it always seem like he’s flapping his yapper about everyone and everything else BUT himself — the WRs, the defense, the other team, Finley, injuries, the weather, the refs, the running game.

    This guy is a pompous arrogant egomaniac with no self-responsibility, and the same adoring media that has always slobbered on him and defended him and protected him will one day open their eyes and see him for the finger-pointing blame-artist that he is.

    (and this from a Packer fan).

  55. mvp43 says: Oct 31, 2012 5:06 PM

    One thing Ted Thompson won’t do is react in a panic.

    Yes, they’d like to run the ball better but they’ll stick it out with Starks and Green until Ced Benson is back in december.

    The last 2 years the Packers were 27th, and 25th in rushing with 3.7 YPA. This year they’re 26th with 3.6………

    I don’t think its that big of a deal.

  56. countyk66ers says: Oct 31, 2012 5:19 PM

    He didn’t single anybody out.

  57. gnarlswoodson says: Oct 31, 2012 5:34 PM

    Yeah what an arrogant tool Aaron Rodgers is.

    “At a charity function for Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer (MACC), where Rodgers is on the board of directors. This is the story of Aaron Rodgers and another cancer patient, a little girl named Cheri. She’s dead. Rodgers was at the MACC event, trying to raise money to save someone else’s daughter, when Cheri’s father asked him to autograph a football.

    The father asked him to make it out to Cheri.

    Rodgers thought about it, then wrote a sentence that left people there in tears:

    To Cheri the angel. Save me a spot — Aaron Rodgers ”

    Go take a walk, and pray your team EVER sees not only a QB, but a human being like Aaron Rodgers.

  65. dkrause71 says: Oct 31, 2012 6:15 PM

    I see alot of negative comments. Each week we seem to have a Rodgers said “blah blah” thread. The guy has a weekly show. He has to say something and guess what, its Packer related. Is what he said really surprising? He didn’t say Newhouse cannot block, or bench Alex Green or anything specific. He said ” we have to run the ball better”. Seems pretty generic to me.

    On the Packers trade front- i would be surprised if they are looking at anyone in the RB area other than low salary guys like LaGarrette Blount.

    They already run the ball 20 to 25 times – just not well and that’s why he’s throwing that much.

    22 carries for 56 yards – decent back/line would make that 22 carries for 96 yards.

    I don’t think that the Packers will trade for a RB and if they do it sure won’t be DeAngelo – Jonathan Stewart would be my guess. Younger than Jackson and cheaper than DeAngelo. Matches 2 of Ted’s biggest requirements.

  67. peytonsneck18 says: Oct 31, 2012 6:31 PM

    The Packers are taking steps backwards every year,,probably go 4-12 by next season,,,they wish they had Toby Gerhart ,we’ll give you him for a 2nd and 3rd round pick,,,

  69. ernie ernie says: Oct 31, 2012 6:48 PM

    I have to take sides with this guy. Basically, what he is saying is teams do NOT respect the pack running game so they discount it. That means the rush the passer with passion is called on every down.
    You cannot stop that action without a fear that someone will break it loose for a big gain. Right now no team believes that so its pass rush city.
    So his evaluation is right on.
    Look. Mccarthy got Benson and thats all he used. When Benson got hurt the next in line had zero experience, no carries and hadn’t a clue about the blocking schemes. You blame that one on coaching. Need to have multiple backs playing to give them all experience. Something that McCarthy doesn’t agree with.

  70. shaggytoodle says: Oct 31, 2012 6:59 PM

    PvyHarvin

    Why would the Packers wish they had Gerhart, TT knows RBs are a dime a dozen.

    Sure you get some great ones from time to time, but they are only great for so long, before injuries, and lack of production start creeping up on them. It can be there one season and gone the next.

    Besides the Vikings are going to want to keep Gerhart in thier back pocket for when Peterson gets banged up due to his running style.

    I remember the last year Favre played for the Packer’s. They had a terrible running game, but Favre made up for it by dinking and dunking short passes successfully all the way to the NFC Championship game.
    A brilliant execution of the West Coast Offense.

    hmmm…. well off the top of my head…
    how about “who needs a running game?”

    when he accepted his MVP award he made the comment “thanks for drafting me san francisco” way to give a big F you to the packers organization and show the world youre still bitter about not being drafted by them

    his comments toward Mark Sanchez and his GQ photoshoot. “embarassing” is the word he used

    he whined and complained about being a first round draft pick and commented numerous times about how he “should have gone earlier” and pouted when San Fran passed him up.

    i could go on im sure

    Thats Right Rodgers throw your O-line and your running backs under a bus. Go ahead and strip your team of any confidence they had going against a good Cards defense. if the Packers lose this game its because Rodgers gave up on the season

HELLO – saying is one thing – doing is another , get it fixed or get a coach that can teach the players and get rid of that stupid zone blocking , maybe even draft a running back high in the draft

    Rodgers is beating his drum loud as he can but winning games against easy opponets…so he can get the Packers to over pay him. thats why he dont care if Jennings leave next season, Finley has made sure hes gone already and Driver …please they dont want him there now because they dont play him. Rodgers is out for his own contract ALL 120 million

    The Packers have an uncanny way of making their rival fans feel inferior.

    starks is in the doghouse for fumbles and injuries, well deserved. I do think he’s urging the front office to make a move. He didn’t get Lynch last year and they paid the price. If they didn’t have Rodgers I winder how bad they would be, anyone deny that he is literally carrying the team?

    Starks missed most of camp and the first 5 or 6 games with an injury. He just started practicing and getting a few plays in games.

    Packers are taking a step? I think you mean ponder. Oh and he was just a little below average at his best. d.

    Rodgers is just telling the truth.

    That’s what she said.

    He’s right.

    I’m guessing most/all the haters here are viking or eagles fans……both without a superbowl.

    But wait, when McNabb made a statement like this regarding his receiving core he threw the team under the bus apparently. When Peyton made a statement like this regarding “protection problems”, he threw his team under the bus.

    Will Aaron Rodgers get the same treatment? ..Nah!
