Cory's Corner: The Packers Running Game Will Be Even Better

Cheesehead TV 20 July, 2021 - 01:02pm

Green Bay's rushing yards per game has gone up the last two years. This year's dynamic crew could blow the lid off the rushing ceiling. 

Remember when Packers coach Matt LaFleur came to Green Bay and pledged to run the football more and with purpose? There were people that were instantly enraged that someone could instantly forget about the Hall of Fame quarterback that was currently on the roster. 

Turns out, LaFleur was on to something. Even in a passing heaving league, you still need a strong running game. The Packers averaged 112 yards a game in LaFleur’s rookie season as a head coach and 132 last year — a year in which Rodgers secured his third MVP award for leading the league in completion percentage (70.1), touchdowns (48) and passer rating (121.5). 

And here’s the kicker: the Packers running game has a real chance to be even better this year. I know that may be hard to believe. Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams were a solid combination for the last four years, but Jones and AJ Dillon could be even better. The reason I like Dillon so much is because he only had one chance to truly prove himself and he knocked it out of the park with a 124-yard, two-touchdown Week 16 performance against Tennessee. That one game was enough for the Packers to let Williams walk  to Detroit in free agency. 

Not to mention that Marcedes Lewis, one of the best tight end blockers in the game, and Josiah Deguara are coming back. 

The running game is the reason why Rodgers’ passing numbers went all the way to the ionosphere. With defenses having to be honest in stopping the run, Rodgers became a magician with the play-action.

The X-factor is going to be Patrick Taylor. The former Memphis star is the versatile running back that general manager Brian Gutekunst and LaFleur covet, while having the quick burst and the vision to be a problem for opposing defenses. The Lisfranc injury he suffered in 2019 appears to be in his rearview mirror after being an undrafted rookie free agent by Green Bay in 2020. 

Those three are dynamic and those three will push the running back position in Green Bay to new heights. Jones is the guy when the weather is good and Dillon is the guy when the team needs a mudder. Taylor is the hybrid of the two, while maintaining some coy secrecy. Since Taylor didn’t even play last year, that will be a huge advantage for a team looking to have an edge. 

LaFleur came to Green Bay looking to transform the running game and after a 26-6 regular season record in two seasons, he has a litany of followers. Finally, people understand that you cannot pass first, then run. You have to be able to run the football first.

The Packers’ offense is a chameleon of different colors, but the running game will leave opposing defensive coordinators green with envy. 

July 17, 2021 at 06:58 am

When you have an MVP QB (happy or not) and you constantly punch the other team in the mouth with your dominant run game it deflates an opponent.

Of course the other benefit of this epic running game will be a Defense which should be fresher and more effective due to less time on the field.

This Packers team is set up to Dominate and nobody knows it better the Mr Man Bun, time to get yo ass ready for training camp Mr Rodgers, vacation is over bra!

July 17, 2021 at 10:01 am

Your point about helping the D is an excellent one. Not blaming Rodgers or excusing DCs, but Packers Defenses have too often been visibly ground down since Green’s glory days. MM’s commitment to the run was always transient.

In parallel, that kind of running game also helps O lines too. For all that I liked Williams, he didn’t scare teams into planning for him. Dillon will after Tennessee and more so if a team gets punished for neglecting him. Throw in Jones’ elusiveness and that’s a massive headache and one that should give Tampa type Ds fits. Can LaFleur learn to harness that? It may help him if that’s the starting mindset.

July 17, 2021 at 11:53 am

I agree with your thinking CW.

I further believe that to have a great running game you also have to have a great quarterback which Rodgers certainly is. The defense has to respect the passing game and not stack the box.

The running game with Rodgers at QB should flourish.

July 18, 2021 at 07:19 am

Well said - and gave me a laugh this morning, thanks nostradanus!

July 17, 2021 at 07:24 am

Very clear and concise points, Mr. Cory. Very hard to argue with this. GB got one dimensional for years and defenses stymied Rodgers/McCarthy game plan for a long time. What MLF/Gute have done to address a number of multi-year team weaknesses as recent as 3 years ago, includes the RB position group and running game and the TE group. What I really like is 1) that GB brings new guys in slowly, and ensures that there is strong mentoring and cohesiveness in place. Look how Tonyan and multiple OL players are slowly coached up and developed (plenty of exceptions however, such as Bahk and Jenkins if their talent is so obvious). So Dillon is a great example, just being mentored behind the Jones/Williams show. 2) the Gute/MLF favor roster selections weighted by superior blocking skills in their talent evaluation, and seem to be right that 10 above average blockers will win the game both in the passing or running attack. (I'm not suggesting you just recruit the best sled pushers, but that superior blocking is a GB strategy under the MLF-Gute regime). Lewis, Deguara, Lazard, Williams, Jones, MVS, Adams....all blockers. Other talent slow to be inserted: Dillon, Tonyan, and a bunch of WRs until they learned to block. All those experienced blockers are going to support Cory's theory of a better-yet running game this year.

July 17, 2021 at 07:34 am

Yes, you do need a running game. And yes, we have the guys to make it "better". But Remember John Brockington and McArthur Lane. They got them to the playoffs. But more was needed! Lombardi had a great running game too. But he still needed a great QB! And a Defense! I don't agree with taking the ball out of your QBs hands. The secondary is so weak in todays NFL. A balanced attack is the right move. But it's just not all gas when you want to win. Forget the chess match. Torch the field.

July 17, 2021 at 08:09 am

WE see you know as much about chess than about football. No suprise here.

July 17, 2021 at 09:46 am

Lot of contradictions in this post!

You do say however a balanced attack is necessary, which I agree with. Meaning....on all three team units. Defense, offense, and special teams all require talent and some balance. If really strong in one of the three the team is unlikely to win a SB. To achieve a high level of balance on these three units there also needs to be some semblance of cap balance with these three team units.

July 17, 2021 at 11:46 am

It is a play-action driven offense.

July 17, 2021 at 11:45 am

The QB delivers the Big Plays when it's crunch time. Until proven otherwise, this defense is soft.

July 17, 2021 at 07:54 am

Without question the running game will be better barring injuries. Our OL will likely be bigger and stronger in 2021. Dillon is an upgrade over William's (Mr. Reliable). The backup running backs seemingly are far superior to what the team has had in recent years. I am excited about Kylin Hill and Patrick Taylor. If they both turn out to be as good as I think they are I hope the team figures out a way to keep both.

July 17, 2021 at 07:55 am

No defense, no SB title. Even when Aaron Rodgers is your quarterback.

July 17, 2021 at 09:01 am

Agreed, but a good running game can seriously help run off the clock keeping opposing offenses off the field. How many times have we seen Mr. Wonderful in critical moments not get a 1st down in 3 attempts, and then the Packers have to kick the ball right back?

July 17, 2021 at 11:48 am

Mahomes produced how many TDs , how fast, against the # one defense in the 2020 SB?

July 17, 2021 at 09:45 am

Defense still wins IMO, as Tampa proved last season. That’s been our achilles heal for the last decade. Hope Barry can take them to the next level.

July 17, 2021 at 09:32 am

Defense is won in the trench first.

July 17, 2021 at 11:49 am

Tampa is five to six deep up front.

July 17, 2021 at 09:52 am

Dillon had a terrific game against Tennessee. Which had the 24th ranked run defense in the league last season. Jamaal Williams proved he could run the ball effectively against a lot of teams. And he was a terrific blocker. And he caught the ball very well. So, I have hopes for Dillon, but until he proves he can do it regularly on the field, he remains an unknown with one good game against a very bad defense.

July 17, 2021 at 01:39 pm

I've had the same damn nagging thoughts. Also remember one play (vs. 49ers, I think) where he was welcomed to the NFL and absolutely stoned by a DT one-on-one -- had to walk off. In addition, one of the talking heads recently reminded about the many Adonis type bodies that couldn't cut it in the NFL.

Here's hoping Tennessee was the norm and not the outlier.

July 18, 2021 at 03:33 pm

He had a couple receptions during the season that showed him to be a good receiver similiar to J Will. As for the blocking, that is about being physical or at least a willingness to be physical and knowing where to be and whom to block. That can be taught and Dillon is certainly very physical. Receiving and blocking don't concern me in the least.

July 17, 2021 at 09:55 am

I can't remember a season that I've looked forward to more than this season. The Packers are loaded and have the pieces in place. Each season under MLF the team has improved offensively and defensively. Thanks to an excellent coaching staff and an excellent job by Gute and the rest of his staff in the draft and FA, the Packers have built in 3 short years a deep well rounded team.

With a few 2 or 3 year jumps, and this team is going to be there and it ALL will start with the running game. I've said it before, I can't think of another time where I was so excited about a 2nd year player like I am Dillon. This dude is a SLEDGE HAMMER with some speed. The versatility in the RB room is better than any year I can remember, at least since Green and Davenport. My hope is they keep Taylor and Hill on the 53, now that's a RB room.

July 17, 2021 at 10:09 am

Dillon looks to be a different class of threat to Williams and, on paper, the ideal contrast to Jones. Dillon has a rare combination of speed, size and power. As a former rugby player, Jones’ ability to escape is a nightmare, but Dillon is a worse one because stopping him takes time (yards) but also saps you or worse. Dillon is a physical freak because he’s not only immensely powerful, he’s fast too. If he can stay healthy he will impact planning. If he can be adept in the passing game, he will be an absolute nightmare for DBs. There is a big difference between a competent runner and a potential game breaker. We should expect a drop off in blocking initially. But perhaps the H Back or other help with that.

July 17, 2021 at 10:21 am

Dillon is the kind of back I like to watch. He wears a defense down until nobody wants to take him on anymore.

He compares very well to Derrick Henry in so many ways except for height. Backs like Henry are always a threat, even when you're playing from behind or on 3rd and long, because he can break big runs at any time and he has a surprising number of long TD receptions (mostly catch and run plays). Dillon could very much be that guy...as much a I liked Jamaal Williams, he was never going to be that guy.

July 17, 2021 at 10:11 am

The offensive line is the key to everything. Stenavich had an answer for pretty much every OL issue in 2020, and the offense played very well. It gets more complicated with a rookie starter at C and your best young OL (Jenkins) playing out of position to cover for the loss of your all-world LT. I expect Bakhtiari will miss the first couple games, and that the offense will scuffle until he returns...and maybe for a game or two after that. I think this offense will look a lot different in November--and be much more efficient--than it will in September...and I don't think #12 will be the root cause of it (even though the media will jump on him).

July 17, 2021 at 10:45 am

Interesting that you have Taylor written is as the # 3 back....

July 17, 2021 at 10:55 am

Im still kind of dumb founded with or without rodgers how this team can be taken serious as a super bowl contender with a below average dline and possibly one of the worst ilb groups in the league .

July 17, 2021 at 12:41 pm

Well, I suppose we were last year while possibly worse at both positions.

July 17, 2021 at 01:07 pm

so w/AR, we have a NFCCG team, that should have won. i think we were the better team. we were not the better team a year a go against the 49ers. We did not get worse at ILB, only better. We did not get worse @ dline, only better. seems to me the only place one could make a case we are worse is Oline, because of Bakhtiari's uncertainty, but I think we will be solid there, too. AR vs Love is the true difference between SB contender and not.....

July 17, 2021 at 01:57 pm

Umm -- does that mean you don't feel the loss of Corey Linsley hurts the OL? Or that the only change to the DL --adding Tedarrell Slaton in the fifth round -- makes the it "only better"?

July 17, 2021 at 05:14 pm

forgot about Linsley, but everyone else is a year better/growth. and same with the Dline. Clark was hurt last season, so new addition and growth of young guys makes the Dline better....

July 18, 2021 at 07:05 am

what are you basing the Dline being below average, that is a ranking at 16 or worse..............?

July 18, 2021 at 03:39 pm

Because the premium positions on Defense, the ones that impact games far more than other positions, are Pass Rusher and CB. In those areas the Packers are pretty deep and strong. Would I like another better DL than Lowry, Lancaster, Keke and Slaton? Absolutely but DL and interior DL is 3rd on the list of priorities on Defense.

July 18, 2021 at 12:34 am

July 18, 2021 at 08:41 am

I was riding in the back on a flight years ago and was sitting in first class next to Earl Campbell.

Given he was a Texas Longhorn and I come from a family of Texas Aggies, we had a fun conversation during the flight. One of his comments was the Aggies helped him win the Heisman Trophy.

The comparison between AJ Dillon and Campbell is fair. I see Dillon as a better receiver and faster than Campbell. I'm six feet tall and have 2-3 inches over Campbell. If Dillon takes over for Jones in the near future, I see him having a more productive career than Campbell.

July 18, 2021 at 01:50 pm

Wow, that had to be a thrill. They listed Campbell at 5'11" so maybe he lost a couple of inches from all the head on collisions with linebackers during his career. That had to be a "first class" experience worth a thumbs up.

July 18, 2021 at 03:45 pm

Dillon might have a more productive career than Campbell, but Campbell was an absolute beast for about 4 yrs, before than punishment caught up to him. No one trucked LB in the way Campbell did. Dillon could be similar but the game is different and RB are now OK w/ stepping out of bounds and avoiding contact. Campbell never did that and it cost him a longer career.

July 17, 2021 at 11:54 am

Arod better make the right decision.. GB is going to be a monster, with Arod back.. Jordan Love can learn more from the master. And next season if Rogers really wants out.. Then he will be traded to another team.. with Green bays Murphy/Gutie will have three first round picks. And plenty of monies to resign guys like Adams and Alexander...

July 17, 2021 at 01:01 pm

his only 'right' decision is to play with the Pack this year....if he truly cares about winning.

July 17, 2021 at 12:03 pm

I am so stoked for this year!

Cory, you say it’s a “passing heaving” league now? LOL!

July 17, 2021 at 02:58 pm

The running game is not the reason Rodgers improved dramatically last year. Having a decent running game helped to some degree, but make no mistake Rodgers is THE reason the running game was so efficient! Rodgers did alot over the offseason to regain the leg strength and get his legs involved in his passing that made a big difference in accuracy and arm strength. Its important to understand that you throw as much w/ you legs as with your arm. Most of the power comes from the legs thru the core to the arm.

Defenses didn't play the Packers to stop the run, they played pass defense to stop Rodgers, which opened things up for the running game! The writer has it completely backwards!

July 17, 2021 at 03:20 pm

Read the memos that are in near every comment.

It's not correct or allowed to give credit to one who is now hated by the fans these days.

July 17, 2021 at 05:36 pm

You say we get to hate someone? Who we get to hate? Roger Goodall?

July 18, 2021 at 05:42 pm

I don't hate you and don't think anyone here does either. I read most of your posts and often time you present a different perspective that I have overlooked. Keep your chin up.

July 18, 2021 at 08:58 am

Indirectly, you just said what I'm adding here.

Back in the 1960s and 1970s, many teams believed running the ball set up the success of the passing game...and that's not wrong. But so many teams did this and became more predictable in the process. During his time in Green Bay, QB Randy Wright had to convince Bart Starr (when he was the HC) to pass the ball to set up the run. It worked for a couple of games.

Today, teams have be equally adept at both and I believe MLF has proven to be just that. Go back to 2017 and look at how ineffective the running game was because there was no consistent threat from the passing game with Brett Hundley at QB. McCarthy was foolish not to utilize Aaron Jones and we know that. Compare that team to the 2019-2020 teams and the team we expect going into the 2021 season.

Your comment about throwing the ball with power from the legs through the core is 110% right.

July 18, 2021 at 05:02 pm

The legs also have a large impact on accuracy, not just throwing w/ power. All those Biomechanics and kinesiology classes are still paying off.

LaFluer has been more committed to the run than McCarthy, however during McCarthy's last years you have to wonder how much that was Rodgers since he complete autonomy to change plays. With LaFluer he has some, but not nearly as much.

Utilizing Jones has improved but some of that is the fact Jones has stayed healthier even w/ an increase workload. His body wasn't NFL ready is yrs 1 and 2 under McCarthy.

July 18, 2021 at 07:22 am

Don't forget about late round 2021 pick Kylin Hill either. I thought he was a terrific pick for the value and already showed he could perform at a high level in the SEC and also catch passes out of the backfield in his final year, even though he ultimately left early due to a disagreement with the coach. It's possible he makes the team and Patrick Taylor gets sent to the practice squad.

I think what Cory's getting at is that we can control the clock. As much as I agree with his point about keeping defenses honest to respect the run and pass, it's about time of possession - which the Packers tended to dominate last year. We've seen other teams try to do this to us too: control the clock and simply keep Rodgers off the field.

July 18, 2021 at 02:51 pm

Get the Lead, then control the clock.

July 18, 2021 at 09:54 am

I’m so excited to see this current group (including coaches) play together. I believe we’ll see number of 2nd and 3rd year players on both sides of the ball improve dramatically. Really have my fingers crossed that Rodgers will be back. This could play out to be a very special year!

Seven Questions to Consider Before Training Camp Starts

Cheesehead TV 20 July, 2021 - 01:02pm

There are tons of questions surrounding the Packers as the start of training camp looms, but here are seven specific ones to keep in mind. 

While it’s entirely possible the Packers keep four running backs on the roster like they did in 2020 with Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams, AJ Dillon, and Tyler Ervin, that feels less likely this coming season with so many roster spots potentially being dedicated to wide receivers and tight ends. So that begs the question, who steals the third spot behind Jones and Dillon? Will it be Patrick Taylor, the undrafted player out of Memphis who spent his rookie season rehabbing from injury, or 2021 seventh-round draft pick Kylin Hill out of Mississippi State? (Second year pro Dexter Williams is also in the mix, but he seems to have the longest shot given that he’s already had opportunities to latch onto the roster.)

This of course depends on the status of one Aaron Charles Rodgers, and it seems like we won’t know anything about his decision until veterans are due to report at training camp one week from today on July 27. The Packers carried three quarterbacks in 2020 with Tim Boyle serving as the game day backup and Jordan Love a healthy scratch for the season. In 2021, however, it’s likely if Rodgers is under center that Love will be his backup and the Packers will only have two quarterbacks on the active roster with one on the practice squad. If Rodgers does not report and Love is QB1 for the Packers, then it seems more probable that Green Bay carries three quarterbacks on the active roster, and Blake Bortles seems to make the most sense as Love’s backup given his veteran status. The other two quarterbacks currently on the team are fan favorite Kurt Benkert and Jake Dolegala out of Central Connecticut State. 

Last year, the Packers went into the season with five wide receivers on the active roster. This year, however, there are even more players battling for what could be the same number of spots. Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard, and rookie third-round draft pick Amari Rodgers are four roster locks at this point, but then that leaves seven players vying for either one or two remaining roster spots. Those seven players are veteran free agent Devin Funchess who opted out of last season, Equanimeous St. Brown, Reggie Begelton, Chris Blair, Bailey Gaither, Malik Taylor, DeAndre Thompkins, and Juwann Winfree. Funchess and St. Brown should have the inside track to whatever spots remain, but this position will have some of the stiffest competition come training camp. 

At this point of the offseason, despite the selection of Georgia cornerback Eric Stokes in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, Kevin King still feels like the starter across from second-team All-Pro Jaire Alexander on the boundary. While King had an up-and-down 2020 season after a promising 2019 campaign where he led the defense with five interceptions, he’s a reliable veteran who gives Green Bay the ability to let Stokes develop naturally. Even with a high draft selection, first-round corners don’t always have impressive rookie seasons. Jeff Okudah from the Detroit Lions is a prime example of a rookie being thrust into the spotlight and dealing with growing pains. While it’s possible Stokes will surpass King on the roster midway through the season and claim a starting role, letting him develop slowly without the added pressure of being an every-snap corner will go a long way towards his long term success, and the success of the defense under new coordinator Joe Barry. 

This question is a two-parter of sorts, since perhaps the larger question is “will David Bakhtiari be ready for Week 1 against the Saints?” If he is ready to return, then the left side of the offensive line is all but solidified. If his status remains a question, then there are plenty of candidates to fill in at left tackle, whether that’s Billy Turner, Elgton Jenkins, or a surprise option like Ben Braden. Moving any existing starter to left tackle, however, creates new roster holes to fill. Rookie second-round pick Josh Myers is the early frontrunner to be Green Bay’s center, and that should continue into training camp. The right side of the offensive line is where there are more questions, as Lucas Patrick, Jon Runyan Jr., and Royce Newman have all taken snaps at right guard. The Packers kept nine linemen on the active roster to start the 2020 season, and it’s likely they do the same in 2021. There are currently 16 on the 90-man roster, so almost half of the unit will be cut before the season starts. 

Every year the Packers seem to sign at least one or two undrafted players to the active roster out of training camp. With names like Allen Lazard, Robert Tonyan, and Krys Barnes as recent examples of undrafted success stories (or Tramon Williams and Sam Shields going back further), it’s easy to see why undrafted players select Green Bay as a landing spot. Patrick Taylor could fit the mold here as an undrafted running back, though he isn’t a rookie. Kabion Ento is also a good choice at cornerback, though he did make the active roster initially out of camp last season before being added to injured reserve. Some rookie names to keep an eye on are Jack Heflin, defensive lineman out of Iowa in a position group that isn’t incredibly deep, versatile inside linebacker/safety hybrid Christian Uphoff out of Illinois State, and special teams returner/wide receiver Bailey Gaither out of San Jose State. 

Last year to start the season, Christian Kirksey was the every-down linebacker and undrafted rookie Krys Barnes shocked many when he started Week 1 against the Vikings opposite Kirksey. Towards the end of the season, the roles swapped as Barnes filled in as the every-down linebacker and Kirksey played more of a Will linebacker role. With Kirksey being released this offseason, the thought was that Barnes would continue wearing the communication helmet and players like Kamal Martin and Ty Summers would rotate around him depending on the defensive alignment. Then the Packers brought in veteran De’Vondre Campbell after the draft, and things got muddy. While Barnes still could start the year as the signal caller for Joe Barry, Campbell has played 79% of snaps or more on defense since 2017. It seems unlikely he’d come to Green Bay solely as a rotational piece. Barry uses his inside linebackers in a number of different ways, and it’s also possible both of them will rotate on and off the field enough that the communication helmet could go to someone who’s an every-down player, like safety Adrian Amos.

July 20, 2021 at 12:32 pm

I got the exact opposite out of today's news. If the report is accurate, he turned down a 2 year extension that would have made him the highest paid player in the NFL, which means it's NOT about the money. He's obviously pissed, and his personal history shows he doesn't let things go.

It's looking more and more likely that AR12's days in GB are over. Let's hope we get a decent return on what seems, at this point, to be an inevitable trade. Personally, I hope they go with young, ascending players on rookie contracts, as opposed to draft picks.

July 20, 2021 at 12:17 pm

Great questions with really good answers and non-answers in some cases. One week from the opening of TC. We'll have those answers soon enough. I'm hoping a bunch of fellow CHTV'ers are able to attend and provide their observations. Many times, those observations come without bias and mean more than some media darling. GPG!

July 20, 2021 at 12:24 pm

Well those are questions. Most of the basically irrelevant however. The only ones that have much importance are #4 and 5.

Who starts opposite Jaire? I would like to say Stokes. But its asking too much of a rookie, even a 1st rd pick, to start opposite Jaire. You run the very real risk if ruining his confidence as a rookie. Stokes will get tested plenty when he's on the field as it is. Asking him to play on the other side of Jaire would be too much to ask or him right out of the gait. Later in the year, maybe that would be a possibility, but to start the season... Kevin King has got to be the starter. He already knows what it takes to start at CB and take the workload he gets opposite Jaire.

Just me but that makes by far the most sense.

July 20, 2021 at 12:45 pm

Why are these questions to consider before Training Camp starts? Seems all of them but one are questions to ask after pre-season games and approaching cut-downs and some (OL configuration) after TC is over. The only question before training camp starts is #2 the QB and who reports.

There are tons of questions surrounding the Packers as the start of training camp looms, but here are seven specific ones to keep in mind. 

Aaron chats all things Green and Gold, inlcuding old Rodgers news that is suddenly new for some reason, with a little over a week to go until the start of training camp.

On today's episode, Jenelle Mackie and Dan Kotnik give us their Packers' 2021 record predictions. Without even knowing for sure who the Packers' quarterback will be, Dan and Jenelle peak at each matchup and give their way too early takes on how the season will end up.

The inconsistent King will likely start at cornerback to begin the season, so buckle up.
