Washington Redskins Wary of Green Bay Packers Running Game

The Washington Redskins have most of their attention focused on Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers today and for good reason.

However, that does not mean that they have totally forgotten that occasionally Green Bay will call a running play. Washington DE Kedric Golston when discussing the Packers’ offense said:

“We know what they’re good at. They drafted back in the second round because they wanted to improve their running game. We know from watching film, first and second down, Aaron Rodgers and the head coach are really smart in the sense of if the pass isn’t there, they’re going to run the football and they count on their running game as a big part of it. So we obviously understand the challenges there and we don’t want them to be two dimensional. We want to stop them no matter what they do, but at the same token I think people contribute the Packers to being a passing team and they do it really well, but they really crease people in the running game.”

Washington should be concerned about running back Eddie Lacy and company since they gave up a chunk of yardage to Eagles running LeSean McCoy.

But let us remember that Lacy is not McCoy – yet.
