    Here's the article from jsonline:

    http://blogs.jsonline.com/packers/a...-sees-packers-getting-run-over-on-sunday.aspx

    They are just paraphrasing, but apparently this guy from NFL.com thinks the Packers' run defense is its fatal flaw. Through the first two games, I haven't really seen that, nor did I see it in the preseason or the end of last season, so I don't know what he's talking about. Maybe he knows something I don't. But I admit I'm very nervous with LaDanian Tomlinson coming into town after two ineffective performances. This guy won't stay bottled up forever.

    I have to think that Hawk stepping up his play will really help out our run D.

    But I disagree with Vic on the initial premise, I don't think our run D is bad.

    It's not bad, but it's definitely suspect. If you let a backup RB with a crappy line get 90 yards, something is going on.

    I hope this answers that question. GB held the league MVP in check when it came to running the ball. The Packers did a fine job containing him in the run. Just as good as the Patriots and Bears.

    LT vs bears

    1.5 yards per carry..17 for 25 yards..Entire S/D team 2.1 yards per carry

    vs Pats

    2.4 yards per carry 18 for 43 yards..Entire S/D team 2.6 yards per carry

    Packers

    2.8 per carry 22 for 62 yards..The entire S/D team rushed for only 2.6 yards per carry

    Anytime you hold Lt for #'s like that you have a GREAT chance of winning
