Just when you think it can’t get any worse at running back for the Green Bay Packers, starting running back and rookie Brandon Jackson suffers a concussion and will miss Thursday’s preseason finale. Like the the Packers’ woeful running game get any worse. When you are down to DeShawn Wynn at running back, I think it’s time to panic. What general manager Ted Thompson has in mind I have no idea.
I understand you need to have a good defense, but if you can’t get a first down on offense, what good is that? Thompson has built what should be a top ten defense, but in the meantime, and with twenty-million to spend, he did nothing to improve an already average offense, particularly at running back. One has to wonder how many backs the team has to lose before Thompson brings in some help. I’m willing to try out.
How the Packers expect to move the ball is beyond me. The zone blocking scheme doesn’t appear to be working and expecting Brett Favre to stay healthy and throw more than 600 times again this year is ridiculous. Head coach Mike McCarthy is being held hostage by his general manager. I can’t imagine what Thompson is thinking about his running back position, but I know I disagree with it.
