Congrats to Mike McCarthy on detesting a running game that was averaging five yards per carry and almost blowing the game!

Jimmer Fredette disagrees with this. The passing game is fun and exciting and propelled them to victory.

Why run when the strength of your team is passing and the weakness of the other team is stopping the pass? Seems like smart game planning to me.

Because by running like they were you can make them even more vulnerable to the pass and avoid getting your QB concussed for the fourth time in the season?

In all seriousness, though-lack of a running game did bite Green Bay in the ass. They came very close to historically blowing a Super Bowl lead.

Thank you! They run even once at the goal line in that last drive and they may get the two minute warning before they kick off! I'm glad they won but their borderline compulsive refusal to run the football, especially when they were getting yards and needed to milk the freaking clock, was the most aggravating thing of the evening for me.

I was more aggravated by the fact that Waffle wasn't here. I was hoping he would show up so we could rag on him, make references to Big Ben's beef jerky, and ask him whether he was jealous of Ben's victims.

Green Bay almost losing the game after being ahead by 18 points was also problematic, though, I'll give you that.

Yea, because there are tons of teams in the NFL that can pound away the Steelers. Happens all the time. And it is even more probable to happen with an undrafted running back.

I'm going to side with McCarthy on this one. Whatcha think.

I'm going to point to the fact they were running on them and quite successfully when they bothered to try. I'm going use the actual game evidence of 4.7 yards per carry to incontrovertibly prove both you and Mike are wrong.

Boom.

Outta here.

Darn it, if they had only run the ball more, you know. To make it more asthetically pleasing for the average football fan.

I wonder if McCarthy is going to toss and turn in his bed over this tonight?

Somewhere, James Starks is crying. McCarthy took away his MVP trophy.

You mean Starks? He got 11 carries for 52 yards, that's 4.7 YPC. Not bad at all. I would have liked to see more of him.

Ha, what are you high fiving about? Outside two long runs, they weren't doing jack.

They had 52 yards. A non-running team like Green Bay is suppose to pound away the Steelers with James Starks? Really?

And when were they suppose to start pounding away at the Steelers? In the 2nd quarter?

It was a two possession game in the second half. Buffoonery.
