    Eddie Lacy posted his first 100 yard game. The team is averaging 140 rushing yards per game, when they've averaged around 100 yards per game the past three seasons. We are 10th in the league in rushing yards per game and 3rd in the league for yards per attempt at 5.2 yards.

    With the loss of both Cobb and Jones for undetermined lengths of time, does this force McCarthy to go with what's working...the run game? I have no illusions that we'd turn the offense over from Rodgers to a rookie RB, but it sure seems like we could start featuring a potent rush attack over the upcoming stretch and possibly beyond.

    I think they should be if we play called the way we did in the last drive we blow out the ravens for some reason MM went away from the run after Lacey's two opening runs I for one was screaming at the tv too run the ball I don't get it swallow your pride MM and run the ball. We have two good backs thunder and lightning 60-40 run heavy come on go pack go

    I don't know if we are yet, but I must have said to my wife fifty times during the game "Am I in the twilight zone, or are we watching our running game and defense win the game for us??"

    After the last two games we are more of a "Field Goal" offense.
