Packers have rushed it 16 times to only 11 passes. Sure Lacy has done reasonably well with 52 yards on 12 carries – but I’m wondering if our offense is suffering in part because of our determination to establish a running game. I can’t really fault the team for wanting to create a solid running game – smart for many reasons including making things easier on our defense (because we keep the ball for longer, giving them a rest). But it seems to be throwing Rodgers/the passing offense off a little bit. Rodgers only has 88 yards passing with is just plain weird for him in a half of football anymore.
Again, I’m in on the idea of establishing a better running game, but I’m guessing we’ll have a bit of a transition here for the next few games as we do. We are so totally unaccustomed to having a decent ground game so this whole process should feel weird.
