The Ravens run a completely different offense than the Packers though.
That still doesn’t negate the Ravens RB
rushed for 4+ per carry. Their RB’s/OL are not that better than ours. They just run more. I’m not even talking about Lamar, I’m talking strictly RB productivity.
Aaron Jones is better than any RB
on the Ravens, so saying Ravens are the lone exception of why GB should not run? Makes zero sense to me
But it's not smart to predetermine the amount of attempts they should rush the ball as there are situations in which it doesn't make a lot of sense to hand the ball off to Jones or Dillon.
Yes I agree. I’ve contended repeatedly to use situational football. So you’re preaching to the choir here. In that 3rd and 2 in
4-down territory you Run twice. We’ve had holes the size of the Grand Canyon on the OL and Dillon looking at it with amazement.
Then we pass? Sometimes Passing means you’re trying to get too fancy but. There’s this thing called living to see another play.
It's worth mentioning that the Packers averaged 4.05 yards per pass on 22 plays compared to 2.5 yards on 12 runs in the first quarter of the past two games
We need to still pass the ball and that was never my contention to Run the ball 100%. If that was the case I’d say just put Love in the game, which I didn’t. However Running 12 times in an entire contest when you have one of the better RB duos in the league is gross RB neglect.
Lastly, it takes a full contest to get the run game flowing. It’s ok to start passing while Defenses are over aggressive early into a contest, I’ve said as much in referencing that I think we should run a 2-min Hurry possession 1. Is that running?? No.
