Production A Key For Packers Running Game
Posted By Sports Talk Florida On December 7, 2012 @ 9:39 AM In NFL | No Comments
Opposing defenses insist on playing their safeties deep in cover-2 schemes, a tactic meant to take away the Packers’ downfield passing game while daring them to run. So the party line that the success of the Green Bay running game is measured more on the quantity of the runs than the quality is no longer valid.
Coming off one of their most productive performances on the ground this season, when Alex Green had 12 carries for 58 yards and James Starks 15 for 66 yards, including a 22-yard touchdown against Minnesota, the Packers are looking to keep the momentum going Sunday night against Detroit.
