    Any ideas about what we can do? I'm thinking we should use Kuhn more and possibly bring back that package with Raji in the backfield in 2010.

    Especially near the goal line with Raji to get a td

    Doesn't matter who is in backfield when the line consistently has been getting beat on 3rd and short.

    True, but I'm getting a little tired of seeing one back sets on short runs. I was Kuhn or someone there blocking to help clear the way in case someone gets beat.

    The line is simply getting physically whipped. One or more o lineman are getting pushed into the backfield interfering with the running backs.

    As much as you want to believe the Packers should be able to pick up that "easy" 1-2 yards on 3rd or 4th down, it's the toughest yard in football due to the defense crowding the line. Personally, I prefer a little deception. If you want to try and run it, spread the defense out with a pass formation. Or set up in a tight run formation, fake the run, roll Rodgers out and give him some options to throw a short pass to or run.
