Packers aim to run 75 plays per game
by Larry Hartstein |

Though it sounds far-fetched, Packers coach Mike McCarthy wants his offense to run 75 plays per game, reports The team averaged nearly 69 plays in the games quarterback Aaron Rodgers finished last season. Denver led the league with 72.1 plays per game.

Playing at a fast pace "seems to be the answer to some of the different things defenses are doing," Rodgers told the website.

McCarthy said earlier that he wants all his running backs to be three-down players so there's no need to substitute. "We play pretty fast, but you always want to play faster," McCarthy said. "With a guy like Aaron, he plays faster than anybody I've ever been around."

The Packers have signed free agent quarterback Matt Flynn, reports ESPN.

Flynn started five games in 2013, including four for the Packers (the other start was in Oakland), and completed 62 percent of his passes for 1,392 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions. He started in Green Bay when Aaron Rodgers was out with a collarbone injury.

He is expected to be No. 2 on the depth chart behind Rodgers again.

Packers striving for offensive balance
by Larry Hartstein |

The Packers finally have a running back in Eddie Lacy who can take pressure off Aaron Rodgers and the passing game, reports the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Defenses won't be able to let their safeties sit back in coverage.

“You hope they play you two-shell defense all day when Eddie’s in the backfield,” coach Mike McCarthy told the paper. “But there’s more to it than that, too, because you don’t want to be one-dimensional one way or the other. We’ve lived that life where we were heavy one-dimensional throwing it, and you’d like to have balance. It makes it easier, puts a little less stress on your quarterback, your best player.”

Packers due to draft a quarterback
by Larry Hartstein |

The Packers couldn't win without Aaron Rodgers last season, so now they're determined to find a promising quarterback in the draft, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Green Bay has drafted only one quarterback, 2012 seventh-rounder B.J. Coleman, in the past five years.

The paper noted Matt Flynn is an impending free agent and Scott Tolzien may or may not be the answer as Green Bay's backup quarterback.

"I think we definitely need four, so I'm hopeful that we can get a young guy in the draft," coach Mike McCarthy told the paper. "That's something we're looking at and maybe taking even a harder look this year — well, that's not true, we've always taken a hard look.

"That's something that we're focused on."

New QB coach wants to challenge Aaron Rodgers
by Larry Hartstein |

New Packers quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt said he will challenge Aaron Rodgers and try to keep him from getting complacent.

"You definitely have to find ways to stimulate him even on the basic principles of the offense," Van Pelt said, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "You find ways to challenge and stimulate him. That goes for any great player that’s been in that position for a long time.

"How many times can you hear the coaching points for '200 Jet Dragon'? You’ve been hearing it from Day One of your football life," Van Pelt added. "Now, let’s try to find another way to challenge him, to stimulate your brain to play better."
