A comment was made in the podcast that the WR coaching was inadequate for reasons including players not breaking off their routes and coming back to the QB.

I wonder how much of this is due to the game plan and how much is due to not executing well. Clearly, the GB game plans promoted long plays and encouraged Rodgers to keep plays alive by scrambling and holding onto the ball for, at times, more than 5 seconds. During that 5 seconds, did GB want the WRs to cut off their routes?

I'm guessing that the desire was for the WRs to maintain their routes for 3.5 to 4 seconds and then break off.

More flak comes your way from me, for dismissing Jamaal Williams. He isn't Aaron Jones explosive, but he is not only a perfectly adequate back, he is a very good (and instinctive) blocker, and THAT is where a lot of RBs fall down. I think he could be replaced with equal talent, but that gets you nowhere. I think it would be hard to get a BETTER back without heavy investment.

The Packers have their reasonably durable power guy (Williams), they have their quick, dangerous, any-play-could-turn-into-a-race-downfield guy (Jones). Really all they need is a credible third guy who can be a decent no.3, there if injuries hit. You third guy would need to be durable (as you've just lost one RB) and halfway decent, with a regular ST role.
