Packers Play-Action game

They get teams to bite SO HARD on these plays yet they can't run the ball for s**t, Rodgers and company get some big times plays out of play action but for the life of me I cannot understand why teams buy into these plays so much, can anyone enlighten me?

Last week vs the Bears is a perfect example, Packers couldn't run for s**t, Rodgers PA's then hits Nelson down the field for a big bomb and BANG, TOUCHDOWN

I don't think this will be a problem for a team that has no fear against the run. A team such as....oh, I don't know.....the 49ers.

Am I the only who thinks that this defense would have a really tough time against the Packers?

Yes, this defense can get to the QB successfully, but there are still too many times and too many games where the pass rush is non-existent. We are getting our most consistent pressure from Aldon; guys like Brooks, McDonald, Haralson, and even J.Smith aren't providing as consistent of a rush. Furthermore, we don't blitz a whole lot either.

This is sort of the defense that the Pack will love to face. If anyone has ever seen a Packer game, you will see them start off with the very short throws, then slowly transition to the play-action as the defense will come closer to the line to position themselves against these shorter passes.

All of this is not to bash against our defense, just to say that it will be an extremely TOUGH task to stop this Packers offense. Our offense has proven that they will usually be able to score in the 17-24 point range. Our defense will have to bring their A++++ game to be able to hold the Pack to that many points ON THE ROAD.
we needa get through the saints first....
The onlt one who might beat them is New Orleans
The Saints play action is just as good if not better, and they can run the ball.

This, I have a feeling we'll get plenty of exposure to this in the divisional round. Good thing we're actually covering the screen pass this year too, as the Saints are great at both.
