New Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur already has a plan in place to help make life easier for quarterback Aaron Rodgers: get the running game going.

It seems like a simple concept, but with the Packers ranking just 22nd in the league in rushing yards this season, you can see why it is a matter of concern for LaFleur:

“I think anytime you can take as much off the quarterback as possible that only helps them out in the long run,” LaFleur said Thursday in an interview on ESPN Milwaukee radio.

“Certainly Aaron’s got incredible talent and we’re going to definitely showcase that talent. But I just think in your early downs the more you can stay balanced and keep the defense off-balance and keep them guessing whether we’re going to run the ball or pass the ball, I think that it opens up opportunities for big plays down the field . . . I’m certainly excited because you’re talking about one of the greatest ever and his talent just speaks for himself.”

LaFleur absolutely makes a good point, and you can tell that he learned a little bit during his one year as offensive coordinator under Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay in 2017.

The Rams have a terrific quarterback in Jared Goff, but Goff didn’t really take off until Los Angeles established the running game with Todd Gurley.

Now, of course, the Packers don’t have a Gurley on their roster, but that doesn’t mean they can’t institute some sort of ground game to take some pressure off of Rodgers.
