We do not have a proven Receiving core and stressing that aspect early to open our Run game is an asz backwards formula for success.
I'm not advocating for the Packers to start a game throwing the ball to set up the run by any means. But I fully expect defenses to focus on stopping the run early and not moving away from it as long as Rodgers and his receiving corps don't make them pay for it.
Although I think you have to consider that the Packers are one of a handful off teams with the personnel to stuff the ball down the vast majority of opponents throats. OL+RB combined.
Dillon might be build to make it work but I don't believe Jones and offensive line excel at it.
