05:34 PM ET 06.03 | Aaron Rodgers famously uttered the "Do we need to?" line on NFL Network last season when asked about the Green Bay Packers' ability to run the football. This offseason, the 100-millionaire has come around a bit on the importance of a running game. "I just think it's better when we have balance for everybody," Rodgers said during a Q&A with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Tyler Dunne, published Saturday. "It helps with the passing game. It slows down the rush. It gives us opportunities to have some more one-on-ones outside."

Place your bets here on which Packer's RB will get hurt first and when.

"Aaron Rodgers wants more from run game"

So Rodgers is demanding more kickbacks from the running (though not very well) backs? Is that extortion?

Nissans suck, you got ripped off, probably because you work for a scam company.

This isnt even worth reading, when Rodgers said "do we need (a running game)?" he was obviously being at least someone facetious, and also he can really only work with what he has, no high profile QB is going to go on tv and say "Our management has royally F'd us by not fielding quality running backs/run schemes", he is going to say something that makes his team's style seem smart--it's called Public Relations...I'd ask you to spell it, but it's obvious from checking a few threads that proofreading means nothing to this site.

I think Green Bay got the message Aaron, they drafted 2 RB's in the 1st 4 rounds. What you really need is an offensive line to lower the number of sacks you take.

An effective run game will help the offensive line..play action...so on and so forth...

Without a running game, there is no way that AR will last the six years it will take for him to collect his 100+ million. He is one concussion away from missing half a season and maybe two away from having to hang up his cleats.
