They didn't seem to have a running game last year either but managed to score the most points in the NFL.

WOW that was 13 pts per game more then the Bears, FACT! Maybe because the Bears didn't have an offensive line that can keep their QB healthy. Did the Bears fix that problem yet? No? Well I am sure Cuntler will be OK he is known for fighting threw injuries....

I heard the packers run game is rated as 31st in the league, you don't think you need a run game at all?

It would be nice if they can actually run the football for playoff purposes but,good thing is a big time passing league,not to many teams are better at that then the Packers.
They wont run nearly as good as Chi,Minn or most teams,but, with AR and those WR and Finley at TE,do you really need to run for well over 100 yards per game? It would be nice to keep AR upright and keep him from getting hit but they dont have problems putting points on the board.I just hope they can improve on it abit so they can run the clock a bit better and they can keep the defenses honest come playoff time.

If the packers had a run game they might have gone further in the playoffs, it just seems if you can only pass it might just end up biting you in the ass at some point .DO you think losing joe philibin will have effect on the packers this season? I read he did all the game planning for the games.

Packers RBs play support role in pass-oriented offense

It would be nice to be able to run it a bit more when it is cold. But I think the Packers invested thier money into talent at other positions not at RB.

Coach Mc called all the plays,so im not really sure how much it would effect.Im sure Coach Mc.,Philbin and others were all involved in the game plan.It wont help Philibin left for sure but Congrats to him for getting a nice promotion and hes still in my prayers that he and is family are healing after losing their son and can find some sort of inner piece ( although you never get over it,you can learn to live with it to a certain extent but never over it)

I understand they invested their money at other positions other than RB, seems like this was foolish. They might have had a better chance in the playoffs if they had a running game. Last year was a very mild winter, having a running game when the weather is bad could mean the difference between a win and a loss. Having starks as your # 1 is risky, with only 600 yards in his whole career and injury prone seems risky.

Of course it does not surprise me dip shit, I was asking if it will be better or worse with him gone? Dumb-ass. Maybe you should be at the fake shareholders love fest.

Tom Clements ( Offensive coordinator this year) was qb coach i believe last year so im sure he had a nice hand in the game plan as well,so while there prob. will be some changes as they are different people and styles,I dont think the offensive game plan will change a whole lot.Maybe more running to a certain extent,maybe some more screen passes ( ala Holmgren in the 90s) but that i would think would be few and far between,but, they are the offensive guys not me,so take it as you will.

Hey dipshit, the Packers are like every other team. When a coach takes a job elsewhere, they fill his position. DUH!!!!!!!!

Since you obviously know little about the Packers, let me educate you. McCarthy is heavily involved in the game planning and has been since he became head coach. The Packer coaching staff has been relatively stable and has worked to gether for quite awhile. The new offensive coordinator, Tom Clements, moved up from within. This is a brief description of his experience:

Clements possesses 19 seasons of coaching experience, including 15 in the National Football League. He served as Green Bay’s quarterbacks coach each of the past six seasons (2006-11) and was a part of one of the league’s top-10 offenses each year. Prior to coming to Green Bay, Clements served as the Buffalo Bills’ offensive coordinator for two seasons (2004-05).

Naturally, only time will tell if Tom falls flat on his face, but I believe the Packers made a good choice. Who do you think they should have made OC? I bet he does a better job than the new offensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears. Mike Tice was with the Bears for how long? One or two years? We all know how awesome (not) he was with the Vikings.

CUtler hasn't made it through to complete seasons and 'Starks' is risky?

Well I guess it depends on how you look at it. The running game last year was stronger than the running game that beat the Bears in the NFC Championship game and went on to WIN THE SUPER BOWL! I guess it all depends on how you see it! I don’t think it was the lack of a running game that cost us vs the Giants.

What is with you and all the hostility? You need to chill or get laid! Of course they fill a position when a coach takes a job elsewhere. I think Tice had a great offense with the vikes as I remember. Sounds like I hit a nerve when asking about your OC going elsewhere.

I'm glad you appreciate info regarding our new Offensive Coordinator. Let me provide the accurate info regarding Tom Clements for you again:

Clements possesses 19 seasons of coaching experience, including 15 in the National Football League. He served as Green Bay’s quarterbacks coach each of the past SIX (6) seasons (2006-11) and was a part of one of the league’s top-10 offenses each year.
