Aaron Rodgers: Running the football has opened things up

Eddie Lacy AP

The Packers will definitely be without wide receiver Randall Cobb for the near future and may be missing wide receiver James Jones in Week Seven as well, leaving the team awfully short on guys to catch Aaron Rodgers‘ passes.

Rodgers acknowledged the difficulties of playing without key offensive pieces during his weekly radio show with Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin on Tuesday, but pointed to a change that’s already been made on the offense as the best way for the team to weather the absences. The Packers have broken from recent tradition by churning up the fifth-most rushing yards in the league and Rodgers said that’s been essential to the offense.

“We are a top five running and throwing the football offense. This is exciting. It’s exciting offensive football,” Rodgers said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “Running the football has opened a lot of that stuff up. I give all those guys a lot of credit. The majority of credit for the players goes to the offensive line. Those guys have done an excellent job of opening up some holes. Teams have been daring us at times to run the football. But against Baltimore, especially in the second half, there were some real tough looks that we stuck with some runs and the guys did a good job of getting a hat on hat, and Eddie [Lacy] did a good job of making a guy miss. Eddie as a runner is underrated when it comes to being elusive. I mean he has the ability to make guys miss in the hole. And when you pair that with some great power, he’s the kind of back who makes you smile.”

Outside of the win over the Redskins, we haven’t seen the Packers offense we expected to see this season. The one we have seen has been productive, though, and the emergence of a consistent running game has been vital to that effort. If Lacy can give them more of what we’ve seen the last two weeks, the absence of Cobb will be overcome more easily.

    How was Trent Richardson the 3rd overall pick in his draft and Eddie Lacey bottom of the 2nd round? I’ve watched both players very closely and Lacey is the better NFL back.

    Be curious to see what the detractors say about Lacy now? How about it viking fans? While he has a lot yet to prove, first indications are there will be many teams that will regret passing on him.

  6. mvp43 says: Oct 15, 2013 5:22 PM

    A Running game is great, but with Cobb out and no real thrat other than Nelson, teams will just line up 8 in he box to stop Lacy.

  7. jwcarlson says: Oct 15, 2013 5:23 PM

    It’s very awesome to see the Packers able to run the ball. Now if only the play call wasn’t a 40+ yard bomb on 3rd-and-short. And how about letting Lacy handle it even just ONCE in the red zone?

    Sure the Packers offense is putting up yards, but it’s that last 5-15 yards that has been costing them ALL season long. I hope they get that straightened out.

    Feed the beast and let him eat.

  8. nfl4days says: Oct 15, 2013 5:23 PM

    Funny how Eddy Lacy was drafted lower than, but has greatly outperformed both Trent Richardson and Mark Ingram. I’ll be the first to tell you that watching Mark Ingram run like a wounded animal for two yards is painful.

  9. vegasgreek says: Oct 15, 2013 5:23 PM

    Packers have to copy Patriots 2 TE offense and start using the old Lombardi Power sweep. RUN TO WIN ! It’s that simple. Make it a weekly goal to get 125+ yds on the ground rushing the football. Play old style 60’s Packer football. Smash mouth running game and short chain moving passes with a few bombs thrown in. Just like Bart Starr did. Eat up the clock and play hard nosed defense. Lombardi laid down the Blue print : START USING IT ! GO PACK GO !

    What’s puzzling is that the Packers are ranked 27th in red zone efficiency. They’re 45% for the year, and 20% in the last three games.

    They were 68.52% last year – best in the NFL.

    Conventional wisdom has it that a dominant running game should improve red zone efficiency. Yet the Packers, while sporting their best running game in nearly a decade, are simultaneously sporting their worst red zone efficiency in the Aaron Rodgers era.

    Makes no sense. Points to play-calling and decision-making, IMO. McCarthy doesn’t know how to properly utilize the run-game in crunch situations.

    How did that work for the Ravens on the 64 yards TD. Plus, James Jones is still playing and they can get Finley more involved too. Even the pass dropping Boykin had a nice catch and run. Let them go 8 in the box. Should be fun.

    I don’t care if Rodgers is on pace for 10,000 yds and 50+ tds. He still comes across as a guy that loves himself some stats even if it’s not in the best interests of the team. He is the anti-Favre. If Favre was losing, he’d still chuck it around to find a win even if it meant hurting his stats with picks. My QB does the same thing and is roundly chided for it. If it meant losing 1 percentage pt. on his QBR, I think A.R. throws it out of bounds rather than taking a chance of a pick. He’s stat conscious is my point. Not taking anything away from his play. Admittedly, the guy is awesome.

    Nice take, you must be a vik fan. Cobb is a loss, no doubt, but thankfully he’ll be back for the playoffs (fyi, those are the games that the best teams play after the regular season has ended). Until then I think Jordy, Jermichael and James will be just fine. One or two of the youngsters step up and we’ll barely miss a beat. Go. Pack. Go.

    Chicago (Blowout Win)
    Philadelphia (Win)

    Are you joking? Chucking it around is why Favre brought so much heartache to the Packers (and to the Vikings too, which actually made me smile). Your QB is one of the reasons you are 0-6 now and did not make the palyoffs in the last 2 years. Hell yeah I’d rather take an out of bounds than a pick 6 or just a pick.

    ……………………………………………………………………………….
    If you cant run behind the Bengal’s OL, you really need to check if you are a RB. Given that Lacy has done just as much damage given his limited time and especially his limited RZ, I say Lacy is just a tad better. I hate when Mike does a pass/pass/pass less than 5 yrds frm the goal.

    _________________________

    Not a particularly intelligent analysis. Nelson is the top guy for the Packers. James Jones will probably play this week. Finley is no slouch at TE when it comes to catching the ball. Go ahead and stack the box to stop Lacy and think you can cover the Packers receivers man to man. Now, do you see how ridiculous that statement was? 8 in the box against Rodgers? lol. Rodgers would pass for 800 yards a game if teams commit to stopping the run against GB.

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

    so….. the Ravens, Bengals, and Lions have extremely good Defensive lines and the Packers hung 120, 182, and 180 rushing yards on them respectively.

    If you put 8 men in the box to try and stop them, then Nelson and Finley are single covered and that’s going to be a favorable matchup. Not to mention that Eddie Lacy is good catching passes out of the backfield and does a nice job with blitz pickups.

    The playaction is what sprung Nelson (with Cobb and Jones both out at that point) for his long touchdown. The PA froze the corner who then got burned by Nelson.

    While it will no doubt be more difficult without Cobb, given the schedule, I think Rodgers will be just fine.

    You do understand that turnovers hurt teams more than anything else, right? Most of the time the team with the most takeaways during the course of the game get the W. So, while you may think he’s trying to get a better QBR I’m sure most would think he’s trying to get a better W-L record. Look at Eli, most interceptions in the league, least wins in the league. Maybe Eli just doesn’t like having a high QBR, that’s why he throws so many picks.

It would only make sense, using your logic of course, that Eli hates having a high QBR and that’s why he throws so many picks. Get real!!!

    Here’s the deal. TT is using soft players who were injury prone in college and no other teams wanted them. That is the reason for the injuries. D backs who are 5’9 and weigh 180. Smallish O line who are supposed to be better zone blockers, ya how is that working. A makeshift of linebackers who are now fast of foot or great tacklers.

    My question is how in the hell does this team win?

    Rogers looks average this year. His arm is not as strong on wide outs and he spends a lot of time on his arse.

    Rodgers used to play with a chip on his shoulder and that’s what made him an intense competitor and great. Now he goes through lapses in concentration and no longer has the EDGE.

  46. themagicman1223 says: Oct 15, 2013 7:33 PM

    The main difference between Lacy and his peers is field vision. When you watch Richardson play you see that he really struggles in that aspect, he either hesitates to go through the hole and it closes up or he picks the wrong one. I honestly think Lacy is going to be the best of the bunch.

  47. justintuckrule says: Oct 15, 2013 7:38 PM

    I’m not talking about forcing passes in the 2nd quarter down 7. I’m talking about being down late in the game. Although the Packers aren’t down often, when they are I don’t see Rodgers taking nearly as many risks as Favre or Eli.

    By the way…..easy with the 0-6 comments. I have plenty of Eli retorts against your team if you want to go down that road. Exactly…crickets.

    We’re talking about Rodgers and his aversion to risk to save his stats.

    I would love to be a fly on the wall in the room where a defensive coordinator actually opens a meeting with ‘Lets just stack the box and make Rodgers beat us….’

    I mean seriously… loosing top flight receivers sucks but Rodgers is still one of the most accurate and dominant quarterbacks in the game. Those top 5 QB’s have a habit of making even average receivers look great, they will find a way to get by.

    Remember what Jennings was saying about Boykins when he signed in Minnesota? When he was talking about how many receivers they had fighting for one ball he specifically called him out as a player to watch. (Fantasy Football Flyer anyone?)

Unless it turns out Freeman is good enough to stick around for a while. Then I go defense in the first round as long as there is a stud there. Still go QB in the second, though. Someone like McCarron or Mettenberger. There’s still a lot of scouting left to do. It’s an exciting time!

    By the by, Devin Hester has more return yards in one game than the Packers have in team rushing the entire season so far.

    Less than 200 total team rushing yards in 5 games for the Packers. Yeah, that’s going to open things up and Lacy rocks.

    I hate to even waste my time commenting on your post..but Lacy has 219 in his last 2 games alone. Watch a game, look at some stats before you make brilliant comments like this

    Are you serious? The packers have had a 100 yard rusher in 3 of the last 4 games, and the other one Lacy had 99. Get your stats from a more reliable source.

    What?? Are you saying the Packers only have 200 rushing yards this season?

    Regardless of what point of the game it is and what the score is giving the other team the ball is a guaranty that you aren’t going to get points on the drive. If you throw it out of bounds you live another down. As a Giant fan you should know that, seeing as though Favre threw you Eli’s first trip to the Super Bowl in the NFC Championship in his last game as a Packer. And as far as Eli’s retorts against the Packers, let’s see if he knocks us out of the playoffs again this year. Oh, wait………

    Devin Hester had more than 704 return yards in one game? Funny, you’d think we would have heard more about that one….

    Math is hard for morbidly obese Bears fans.

    ShAarons last 3 sentences sound pretty desperate. He must really miss Braun

    And the trend continues….I have never seen a group of fans like Viking fans be more fixated on giving grown men feminine sounding names. They seem to increase the activity each season as they approach irrelevance, which is upon them now. Weak attempts at insults is all they have to fight with. They should switch to cheering for their WNBA team.

    Feels good not being “soft” this year …

    but can we button down and cover people better?
    Tramon/Jerron … The dreadlocks are not good luck this year… do what Morgan did and maxpayne 3 yo’ head…
