    The Packers could have one of the best running games in football. Aaron Jones, Jamal Williams, AJ Dillion and Tyler Erwin could hit every mark this year. I have not been excited for the packers ground game since the Ahman Green days.

    Just rewatched the 96 NFC Championship game when we easily handled Carolina. Dorsey Levens’ coming out party. He was fabulous that day for a backup RB. Was fun to see that speed. I remember how shocked I was that season when I saw him beat the defense around the corner repeatedly. Hadn’t seen many Packer RB’s do that in the previous 30 years. I missed the Eddie Lee Ivery years being overseas but Green was another that did that later.

    Levens finally made me realize how important a good RB is. That game and the game when he returned from injury against the 49s. He just made the offense go. Making yardage that an average RB just was not going to do.

    Great receiving RB too. Maybe the best we ever had.

    Lewis and Tonyan in line, Deguara in the backfield, single wide. Oh, heck, let's make it Sternberger wide. That's what the make-it-like-Ten-or-SF crowd would have you believe. Min goes 8 in the box, Jones gains 1 yard. Then back to our regularly scheduled program.

    I agree, I feel our backfield can be scary good. Excited to see Jones, Dillon, Williams, and Ervin. Even though Williams will be impacted by Dillon draft pick, I still love the kid and feel he brings a great element and energy. One thing I’m really excited to see is these guys catching the ball as well. We know Jones can, Williams had 5 receiving TDs last year, Ervin is a do it all type of player, and then throw in the big back Dillon. I’m excited to see how we utilize all of them!

    I was surprised that Dillon was not in there in the first qtr when the Pack was inside the ten twice... and come out without a touchdown both times.

    First and goal inside the 5 should be Dillion territory, no?

    Hindsight helps me, but off tackle with your big RB when you need 2 yards is rarely a bad call. At least try it one out of 4 or five plays, no?

    Down at the goal line, I'm not a huge fan of off tackle. A little slow developing, usually some kind of kickout block. Gives time for defenders to shoot gaps and blow up plays.

    I personally think that running straight ahead on the goal line is setting yourself up for failure. When the defense brings in all their beef, even getting 1 yard is asking for failure. Defensive linemen are big and strong and really all they have to do is fight to a draw.

    If you need 1-2 yards and you want to get it on the ground, I vote for nothing wider than the B-gap. Maybe no fullback and/or giving it to the fullback.

    AND THEN do enough presnap BS to get the defense thinking. Shift. Motion. Dummy audible. Do a dance. Point at the strong safety. Belly rub. NY Bozo. Do all of it.

    The defense knows that your ballcarrier is getting the ball. The viewers know it. The announcers know it. The Refs know it. But you've given the MLB just enough to think about that just maybe he slows down enough to be late to the hole and you get the 1st down or Touchdown.

    This was something that the Pats w/ Brady did exceptionally well.

    Brady shooting a gap on the QB sneak was the Patriots way

    Not if Dillon doesn't know protection schemes; Rodgers can audible and if Dillon doesn't know the blocking assignment then he can't be on the field.

    Protection, shmetection. Run it.

    There's something to be said for a little smash mouth early in the game.

    Indeed, but they would still do most of the above.

    Or immediately lineup and quick-snap it to catch the defense loafing.

    Ha!

    They came to the line (and Rodgers read and audibled several times) with the results we saw.

    I suggest there might be some merit in using the big short yardage specialist you drafted to help in short yardage situations when you find yourself in a short yardage situation.

    Dillon needs the offensive line to open up a hole to run through in short yardage sitautions as well. He won't be able to run over defensive linemen.

    my guess is they'll work Dillion into the offense as he earns his right to be there. I see no need to just give him snaps over someone else just because he's a 2nd round pick. Earn it kid. Everyone ahead of you on the depth chart has.

    And in that case Aaron Jones can run through a hole.
