This is why I'm sick of Mike McCarthy's play-calling. The Green Bay Packers are tied for 26th in the league for rush attempts per game. Of the 5 top teams in that list, you have the 4-1 Falcons, the 3-1 Chiefs, 4-1 Jets and 4-1 Ravens. The Ravens, BTW, ran for 114 yards per game so far, while the Packers ran for 107 yards per game, which is to say it's not necessarily that we are not capable of running the ball. So If you think passing the ball in this league will win you games, you've got another thing coming.
Another thing is the conception that after the 71 yard run by Brandon Jackson last Sunday, we had a bunch of 1-yarders so it it was OK to shut down the run game. If you exclude that big one by B-Jax, then our RBs ran 12 times for 56 yards, for a 4.6 yards per carry. That's more than enough to keep pounding the rock in a game we led throughout. 13 carries and 50 dropback in a game we controlled until late in the 4th quarter? This is beyond having faith in Aaron Rodgers, this is single-mindedness, unimaginative coaching by MM, and it's not the first time (i.e. the Bears game, again having the lead into the 2-minute warning in the 4th yet still passing the ball 45 times).
This is nothing new. Every year we see how MM is losing faith in his running game faster than the speed of lightning. He does it with or without Ryan Grant in the backfield. Beyond our injuries and beyond poor play by some players, our biggest enemy is the play-calling, and there's only MM to blame.
