Why are the Packers Offense and Defense philosophies so different? Matt's Offence starts and relies on the run, Mikes Defense is focused on stopping the pass.... If the passing game is that important to stop then why is the offence shifting to a run heavy scheme?

So according to scouting reports , a back that can’t block and needs a hole to run through to be effective and a tight end that can’t separate well but Is a decent red zone target when it’s a jump ball . This helps the Packers how?

Sure, I'm not a big fan of the draft picks but everyone knew Boston College was going to run the ball and AJ Dillon still had the third most yards for RBs in this draft class with a similar amount of attempts as the two above him. Unless BC had the best offensive line in the country, the kids got some talent.

A good wide and deep analysis by Owen - especially as he offers how Dillon and Deguara fits into the LaFleur offence. What the draft represented was a full commitment to the new offence vs. the LaFleur-Rodgers compromise of last year. I anticipate that Rodgers will be more of an employee this year (albeit very well-paid) - with management hedging their bet with Love - should Rodgers not be fully willing or capable of executing the new offensive scheme. In other words, the time has come when management is looking for players to fit the scheme (or not), rather the scheme fitting the players. It should be a different and interesting year!

A J Dillon ran against a stacked box on 75% of his carries and he still was extremely successful. I don't think that will happen in the NFL with Mr. Rodgers behind the center. I also can see Aaron Jones split out as a deadly receiver more often with Dillon in the backfield. Deguara could open things up more for Sternberger as a receiver threat. It is exciting to think of the possibilities. Everything went our way last year. I will admit that I enjoyed every minute of it. Maybe with a new direction we can dictate what is going to happen and force our opposition to make adjustments for a change. Wouldn't that be a nice change of pace? I am hoping that Mr. Rodgers buys into the changes. I believe that it would make him even better. He would not be expected to carry the whole load. Can he do that and be happy?? Hmmmmmm.......we shall see. I love me some smash mouth football!!
