Defining the “Balanced Attack” Part 2

  4 years ago     92 Views     Leave your thoughts  

In the first part of this series, we tried to redefine the "balanced attack" on offense as one that has the pieces in place to deal with whatever the opposing defense throws at them. Getting closer to a 50/50 split between the run and the pass would have more to do with what makes most sense according to down and distance and what the defense was showing. With that in mind, it all starts with the play calling, and all the communication that takes place on and off the field. But success…

Definining the “Balanced Attack” Part 1

  4 years ago     78 Views     Leave your thoughts  

Packers fans have been calling for a more "balanced offensive attack" for several years now, and rightly so. But the thought struck me this week..."What does that mean?" Most of the time when you hear of a balanced attack people mean they want more of a 50/50 split between the run and the pass. And when NFL announcers talk about the new Packers run game they often mention that we hadn't had a 100 yard rusher in 44 games before this season, but is this really a good way to look at it?

There has been so much talk about the Packers' running game this off-season. Fans are excited about the potential DuJuan Harris showed at the end of last season and pumped about the new draft picks. This week I contemplated what kind of improvement the Packers run game would need to make to impact their offensive production. I don't think the Packers need to have the #1 rushing team in the league. We have one of the best quarterbacks in the league right now and you always... always want the ball in the hands of your best player. So, the Packers…

Aaron Rodgers Making It Count: TDs Per Pass Attempt

  4 years ago     101 Views     1 Comment  

Football is all about scoring touchdowns. Granted the highest scoring players in the league are generally kickers, but no team wants to score a bunch of field goals in a game and very few games are won without scoring a touchdown. If Packer fans had a choice, every pass Aaron Rodgers tossed in the air would result in a touchdown. Of course, that's never going to happen, but just how many of Aaron's passes DO result in a touchdown? The answer might shock you. (more…)
