"Less Volume, More Creativity"

"Less Volume, More Creativity"

Excellent little tid-bit tucked away in Kevin Seifert's "Camp Confidential" post over on ESPN.com:

McCarthy has installed a sign on the office wall of each coordinator. It reads: "Less volume, more creativity." McCarthy said it applies mostly to his own offensive play-calling, but it's also appropriate to keep in mind as the Packers enter their second year in Capers' scheme.

I'm with Kevin on this one. I don't doubt McCarthy means what he says in regards to the sentiment mostly applying to himself. But I also think, for a young team that at times looked a little overwhelmed on defense not only in games against "veteran quarterbacks" but that looked downright lost in the playoff game, a little less volume is not the worlds worst idea.

I definitely agree with McCarthy's move here. I'm glad the organization is taking initiative here. I just don't agree with 540 ESPN's coverage of super bowl buzz within the team. This excludes Wilde because he critiques and doesn't rant. I know they are personalities playing devil's advocate, it's just a little zealous (so much that I turned to ESPN 1000 today). Frankly, not many national media members have taken note of the packers alleged cockiness this off-season.

The fact of the matter is saying Super Bowl or Die doesn't mean right now what it would ten years ago. What was once considered show-boating is now considered being light hearted. And bold statements have become so frequent, especially in the NFL, that they just don't mean what they used. Rex Ryan has raised the bar pretty high. Driver has even said he likes the enthusiasm. I know he wouldn't throw a team member or two under the bus, but it was obvious he thought it was blown a little out of proportion.

And as far as putting a target on your back-- This is the NFL. If people actually knew the smack talk that went on during the game, the NFL would get better ratings than it already does. This isn't the laid-back AAU mentality that has saturated the NBA. These guys guys are already extremely competitive on game-day. Are teams going to get more motivated by these alleged cocky statements? If that was true, wouldn't the Bear's receiving core have out-performed Green Bay's last year after Driver's comments about their lack of talent at the position.

Look at Lombardi's Packers. You don't need to run 100 plays as long as the ones that you do run are executed with precision. It gets to a point where the other team knows what's coming but can't stop it. I like the philosophy.
