That's not pass heavy at all dude. It would be pass heavy in the 1970s but not in todays NFL. The Packers #16 in rushing attempts and #21 in pass attempts per game. You have absolutely no clue what you are talking about. The Packers are a very balanced offense. They don't throw the ball every play.
How about we look at the numbers in game fashion and don't argue basic data. Because GB has gotten up on teams very quickly they haven't had to run many plays. This factor is based on 3 different scenarios
a) The team scores quickly
b) The offense is garbage and is always punting
c) field position is always good so not many plays are needed to score
The 9ers are a product of option C, the Packers are a product of option A.
GB ranks 22 in offensive scrimmage plays which shows the O is not on the filed very much. In that time frame you score very fast and keep a healthy lead over your opponent. But in the time frame you are running more meaningful
passing plays compared to running plays. You running game is garbage but you run the ball when you have a healthy lead. Because you normally have a healthy lead your running game gets used in garbage time to run out the clock. You use Rodgers to score and move the ball, the running game is an after thought right now.
If you want further proof look at total yards per game. How is it that you rank 4th in total yards, 3rd in passing yards, and 21st in rushing? Easy answer, you pass the ball all over the field, and are very effective at it. Again this points to an A+ passing game and a C- running game, you run for s**ts and giggles, you pass to move the chains and score. Look at who is scoring on the team, Rodgers and Flynn have just as many
rushing TD's as Kuhn and Starks......have an explanation?
If you cant watch the Packers and realize they are a passing team first, second, and third then I don't know what to tell you.
