Packers No Longer a One-Trick Pony

Eddie+Lacy+Philadelphia+Eagles+v+Green+Bay+eSOjO-6KJ9kl (1)

It is a saying often joked about in my friendship circles. “Why run, when you can win?” Of course this is referencing when a team with a great quarterback is running the ball too much.

Sarcasm aside, the Packers do have a great quarterback, and as long as Aaron Rodgers is healthy they should remain a pass first team. However, yesterday was a win that Packers teams of the recent past could not have gotten. Yesterday, the Packers took on the Minnesota Vikings coming off back-to-back blowouts. Another one was expected with the Packers riding high, and the Vikings being a below average football team.

It was expected that the Packers would once again be able to throw the ball all over the yard and put up points in bunches.  It was clear early on that would not be the case. The Packers offense struggled early on. Receivers were not running open down the field, and Rodgers was not lighting up the scoreboard with ease.

Despite the shift from what had been the case in recent weeks, the Packers had the ball with 3:22 left to play, and a three point lead. The mission was simple: Two first downs on the ground, and the game is over.

Eddie Lacy took over the game in a way he had not done since a season ago. Lacy went from indecisive, to the punishing power back that Packers fans fell in love with during his rookie campaign. Lacy and the offensive line were able to grind the game out.

Eddie Lacy Runs Green Bay to Victory

Lacy vs. Min

The game the Green Bay Packers played yesterday in Minnesota was the exact kind of game they would lose before they drafted Eddie Lacy.

Mike Zimmer and the Minnesota Vikings secondary had a great plan and execution to limit Green Bay’s big plays down the field. There were no long play action post plays to Jordy Nelson, and there were no plays when Aaron Rodgers rolls out of the pocket and hits Randall Cobb improvising his route. In fact, Rodgers did a great job of escaping the pocket several times, but rarely hit any big plays.

It was just a good day for Rodgers and not a great one. Rodgers used to have to be great every game for the Packers to win with no running game or defense. The defense was pedestrian yesterday, but Lacy was an absolute stud.

Lacy rushed 25 times for 125 yards and a touchdown. Also, he scored a 10-yard receiving touchdown on a nicely designed shovel pass.  Lacy was just a beast yet again with breaking tackles, as 70 of those 125 rushing yards were after contact.

Lacy finally got a game when he got the touches he deserved and credit to him for never complaining once for not getting enough carries. Coming from the Alabama program his values are where they should be. Not to mention he did all of this battling illness.

Packers Aftermath: Top of the NFC North Again

pack vs vikes

Well look at that, the Packers are once again sitting atop the NFC North. Must be that final stretch toward the end of the season. When the difference between a 1 or 2 seeded team, a Wild Card spot and sitting on the couch watching the playoffs from home may only be a loss or two, every win counts. And taking out an NFC North rival at home is all the more satisfying. The Packers have gone 2-0 against the Vikings this year. See you (wouldn’t want to be you) next year, Minnesota.

  • Not surprised by the close margin of victory. The Packer seem to still have hiccups in Minnesota.
  • And it’s not a game unless Coach McCarthy totally wastes a timeout on a bonehead challenge. Seriously, why?
  • Man, I thought they killed that stupid horn. I guess I was wrong.
  • Hat tip to my awesome little brother (yes, I do claim him as mine once in a while) @jys_h for reminding me that the Packers have not trailed in a game since October 26. That was the Saints game, if you need any further reminders.
  • Not as dominant of an offensive showing, but they got the job done.
  • Eddie Lacy is a bowling ball. Pretty sure he would hurt you if he ran through you. Love that Rodger has finally found his screen pass target. It’s fun watching that play that seemed all but nonexistent the past suddenly become a dangerous thing. Hello, screen pass, I have missed you ever so.

Early Bird Breakdown Week 12: Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings

Aaron Rodgers vs. Minnesota Vikings

Early Bird Breakdown Week 12: Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings

Hello all! Welcome to another Early Bird Breakdown! Let’s begin with the recap:

The Recap:

Aaron Rodgers making it look easy

Last week the Green Bay Packers thoroughly beat the Philadelphia Eagles into submission on Sunday Night Football with a final score of 53-20. As with the Bears game, the Packers put the Eagles so far behind that Rodgers again sat in the fourth quarter. The defense has also been on a role since Clay Matthews moved to inside linebacker for help against the run. Overall, it was a complete beating. As for the Vikings, they ended Chicago’s losing skid after a shaky outing by quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Chicago won at home 21-13.
