    Packers | McCarthy wants to run the football
    Thu, 27 Jul 2006 21:19:50 -0700

    Packers.com reports Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy wants to run the football successfully in 2006. McCarthy intends to be fully committed to the ground game in his first year as head coach in Green Bay, and he knows that's going to mean sticking with it during some of the tougher times. "They'll boo you when you keep running, but it's a commitment, a long-term commitment," McCarthy said in his pre-training camp news conference Thursday, July 27. "People sometimes have a tendency to get away from the run game early in the game. You need to commit to it. That's not to say you start every game with 10 runs, but you have to make a commitment over the course of the season if you think it's going to work." McCarthy's perspective is whether you're looking at an individual game, or the 16-game season, the ground game is always a work in progress.

    Packers | Favre to be on a pitch count
    Thu, 27 Jul 2006 21:17:52 -0700

    Packers.com reports Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre's workload in training camp may not be quite as heavy as that of most starting quarterbacks in the NFL, which should give backup QB Aaron Rodgers significant time with the No. 1 offense in practice and potentially in preseason games. "We're going to do the same approach with Brett as we did in the spring, put him on a pitch count and pay close attention to his arm," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "There's no reason for him to get his arm worn out in training camp. That will give Aaron more opportunities and he'll play a lot in preseason." McCarthy does not anticipate having Favre sit out any preseason games.

    Yes, that's what I like to hear :!:
    Keep on running even if it's the fourth quarter and you're close behind.
    Don't be the Eagles! They'll suffer from their style of play this year. Do what suites your personnel.

    Hopefully we'll HAVE healthy and talented RBs once the season starts and our O-line DEVELOPES into a strong unit. I pray every night :!: :bow:
