WHY DID YOU STOP RUNNING ON CRITICAL PLAYS?

Everyone is blaming the defense that loss, but did anyone else think they should have ran more? It was working in the second half and couldn't be stopped.

Dumb....

It's the simple the thing that the analysts love. When the game is on the line, you put the ball in the hands of your key players, and Aaron Rodgers is Green Bay key player number 1. Green Bay would rather have a loss in the hands of Rodgers, than a win in the hands of someone else.

You will see the same with the Colts putting it in the hands of Luck (even though they were averaging something like 6.5 yards per carry), New England will put it in the hands of Brady. New Orleans will put it in the hands of Brees. Regardless of how poorly they are doing or how well anything else will work, when the game is on the line, they will be the ones to win or lose. They are not paid tens of millions of dollars to let someone else do the winning.

Except Joe Flacco, who is paid tens of millions of dollars to let the other team win.

There was some Pats game this year where the Patriots lost because they threw 4 times in the redzone with plenty of time left. They were averaging so many yards per carry, then decided that running was from the devil. Made me so mad.

Hahaha Ore_Ele's right on the money. The Packers are going to be scary next year btw. The addition of a solid run game to their offense, and Rodgers probably wanting to come back with a vengeance (not to mention the return of other key injured players) is going to make them an NFC North favorite in my eyes.

Gotta feel bad for whoever ends up as the coach of Detroit next year when the previous guy was fired for simply not making the playoffs. It's gonna be a rough time for them, though I do hope they grab a wildcard.

We might have a new running back, but we are still a team designed to pass. Our o-line can't be trusted to open up holes for Lacy on the most critical plays, but we can trust that when they let defenders through that Rodgers will use his feet, quick-release, accuracy, and intangibles to somehow make something happen. I don't see that changing either next year, for several reasons. First and foremost, we've put resources into the o-line and we can't afford to anymore. What we have is what we've got going ahead, and we have glaring needs on our defense that need to be addressed. The only offensive pick we'll likely take in the first 5 rounds is a tight-end. Second, Rodgers is the highest-paid football player in history. We're going to lean on him and the running-game is always going to be merely for "balance," even if we do in fact run more running plays during a game. On big third downs, Lacy usually is replaced by Kuhn who's a great blocker and can leek through the line for a short pass.

NFC North favorite? That's a bit redundant. It's Aaron Rodgers' team, and Aaron Rodgers doesn't miss the playoffs. Neither does Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. I couldn't believe how impossible it is for a team with one of these guys on it to miss the playoffs:

2002: Peyton/Colts make playoffs
2003-2007: Peyton/Colts make playoffs, Brady/Pats make playoffs
2008: Peyton/Colts make playoffs, Brady is injured and Pats miss playoffs
2009-2010: Peyton/Colts make playoffs, Brady/Pats make playoffs, Rodgers/Pack make playoffs
2011: Peyton is injured and Colts miss playoffs, Brady/Pats make playoffs, Rodgers/Pack make playoffs
2012-2013: Peyton/Broncs make playoffs, Brady/Pats make playoffs, Rodgers/Pack make playoffs

So yeah, I will bet that there are three teams we will see in the playoffs next year :P

Luck is the only person who might be adding to this list soon, he is elite at comebacks and has yet to miss the playoffs himself, but he isn't elite about avoiding interceptions. Four picks in the divisional game is back-breaking.

Luck plays in a week division though, the NFC North is much tougher, as there are star filled teams such as the Lions, and the Bears and Vikings, who seem to be good every other year. The Jaguars and Titans aren't that good, and the Texans are in a slump.
