    I think you are misreading the situation. I really don't think that the new coach is expected to run the ball more effectively. I believe the thinking is that the system will better integrate the run and pass game and bring more effective play action. I think the media is putting out the usual offseason fluff, and that is confusing the situation. In 2011, when Rodgers was putting up the great numbers, he took 50% of the snaps under center. Over the years, that changed to where he takes less than 25% of snaps under center and as you know, were down to the fewest rushing attempts in the league. He has consistently taken 25% or fewer snaps under center for several years now, so it wasn't just lack of mobility from the knee injury last year. This appears to me to be a choice the team was making. Last year, despite the 5.1 yds per attempt rushing on first down, they ran the ball only 40% of the time, whereas in the 2011 season, they were an even 50-50 on first down despite only having a 3.8 yd per carry average. As you have pointed out, over the time that these changes have taken place, Rodgers' numbers have deteriorated. It seems to me that as the team became more infatuated with Rodgers' ability, they moved more toward pursuing "explosive plays" via shotgun, extend the play with Rodgers' feet, and wait for some opening downfield. They watered down the ability to set up the shot play that they so coveted. I think the hope is that getting back to an offensive mix where there is effective play action will help. I don't think Lafleur will make the run game better, but maybe he will make the offense less predictable.

    Yah, maybe. I just think he was trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear with that roster, especially after Walker got hurt. He had talent at running back, and not so much at WR. Marriota isn't a great answer at QB and had injury issues as well. I just have the impression that this system with an elite QB will appear much different than it did in Tennessee. I hope I am not wrong.

    Do you really think that is why he was chosen? I haven't gotten that impression.

    Why?
  6. Who's your 2019 Breakout Player

    Seems to me that Moore needs to show that he can consistently catch the ball. If he can't do that, then the athletic ability will get him no where.

    I would be curious to know what measurement technique they are using to get their body fat percentage. The easily accessible techniques can be wildly inaccurate, so the number ends of being more brag than fact.

    Correct. That is why the top QB's will always have the leverge to drive prices under the current rules.
  9. Random Packer News & Notes

    Until the time that there are more than 32 guys who can play as a legitimate franchise QB, players at that position will be able to drive the price up. The QB salary is based on importance of the position combined with scarcity. As an example, maybe Aaron Rodgers can't throw for more yards, but the alternatives certainly can throw for less.

  11. Mark Murphy must go!!

    Help me out. I have read the Silverstein article, and I don't see the smoking gun of Murphy nixing a coach. Where do you get this from? This whole thing reminds me of Tyler Dunne's reporting of the Murphy-Rodgers phone conversation. The measure of the system will be what the team does going forward, not the opinions of former employees about the past. Murphy's legacy will be dependent on the performance of Gute and Lafleur, and not how he determined the lines of supervision. JMO.
  12. Mark Murphy must go!!

    Though it certainly appears, at least to me, that Murphy is not running the on field operations. He has Gute, Ball, and Lafleur running the on field operations. Murphy has simply made it so all three report to him as opposed to just one.
  13. Mark Murphy must go!!

    I am amazed by the knee jerk reaction to the Packers organizational structure. I mean, if Ron Wolf's system was the best way/only way, why did the dysfunction develop? Why is the most successful NFL program of the post salary cap/free agency run with a different system where there is a coach with near total control of everything? Could it be that the system needs to play to the strengths of the people you have, and not make the people fit a model just because it worked for someone else? Could it be that organizational structure need to be adjusted as time moves on to deal with changing conditions?
