    What i really like is the focus on the running game.
    It makes our offense less onedimensional.

    I guarantee the Packers won't feature a run heavy offense once the regular season starts.

    I don't think we will run a major run offense, but it won't hurt to be more variable. Last Season most opponents could easily lean back and wait for the pass...

    A good running game will open up the whole passing game, doesn't it?

    Actually last season teams stacked the box to stop the run because the Packers passing game struggled.

    I agree that a good running offense opens up the passing game though.

    What might be more important than the running game is to stop big plays through the air.
    in my opinion our Safetys need to step up.

    The Packers have one of the best safety tandems in the league. And while you might think the team has given up a ton of big plays through the air only four teams gave up less 20+ yards completions than the Packers in 2015.
